Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alsip District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum begins by introducing students to the building blocks of all core subjects. They learn how to investigate scientific phenomenon, how to read for information and for pleasure, and different ways to solve math problems such as looking for patterns. In middle school, these skills become more complex and students are increasingly challenged in their learning.
Humanities classes emphasize reading complex nonfiction texts and writing analytical essays, rather than having students read fiction and poetry and write creatively. The Common Core favors reading nonfiction and analytical writing to teach students to be critical readers and persuasive writers. The Common Core Standards for humanities classes strive to teach research skills as well as teaching students to use evidence to support their theses when writing. Mathematics and science classes are rigorous and focus on a smaller ranger of foundational topics each school year so that students master these before moving on.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Early Action
Distinguishing between these two forms of applications can be confusing because of their similar names and similar attributes, but there are a few key differences. Early Decision (ED) applications are early, binding applications. A common deadline is November 1st, which is much earlier than the February 1st deadline for many regular decision applications. “Binding” means that students must sign a contract stating that they’ll definitely attend this college no matter what, if accepted. Early Action (EA) are nonbinding, early applications. A common deadline is November 15th, which is later than ED but still much earlier than regular applications. Acceptance rates for ED and EA applications can be much higher because there are fewer applicants applying, and those who do are often strong students, and both of these application types demonstrate to the college a lot of positive qualities.
