Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Barrington District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum has been designed to assist students in all areas of learning. The reading strand equally focuses on literary and informational texts and imparts the skills students need to analyze these different styles. The writing strand introduces students to a variety of forms of writing and places emphasis on language and grammar usage as well as the development of voice and tone. Students also learn how to locate and assess the credibility of information using library resources.
The Social Sciences curriculum introduces students to concepts in Political Systems, Economics, History, Geography, and Social Systems. Students learn about civic life and identify common taxes, such as sales tax and income tax, and explain how that revenue benefits society by funding roads, schools, and other infrastructure. They learn about how people and systems interact and come to understand the historical background for current issues in the world. They also have many opportunities to conduct independent research in historical and social topics that interest them which helps the development of their academic research skills.

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: Differences Between Colleges and Universities
The primary difference between a university and a college is how it is organized. A university is organized by departments called schools or colleges. These are usually similar departments, such as humanities, and are often grouped into their own separate buildings. These departments operate autonomously under the umbrella of the larger university. State-funded post-secondary institutions are usually organized into universities. Partly, this is because they tend to be larger than private colleges, though this isn’t always the case. If they are public, universities might be part of a system of campuses, which all operate autonomously. In general, the flagship campus will be the largest and most known of these, though these branch campuses can develop their own reputations as independent centers of learning.
