Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Braidwood District Curriculum
Primary goals of the curriculum include that every student will learn to read well, read often, and enjoy reading through a partnership of family support and meaningful classroom instruction. The district understands that reading isn’t just a pastime or an antiquated idea; it teaches students how to think critically and gives them knowledge they will need to succeed in life. Students read a variety of types of things, from novels to nonfiction in print and digital formats. They also learn the different ways to approach analyzing various genre.
Another goal of the curriculum is for every student to become a self-directed, independent learner through teaching study skills, homework practices that build study habits, and by supporting parental involvement in their child's education. Students who take control of their own learning are more likely to achieve success later in their post-secondary pursuits. The third goal is for every student to develop a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves and others through consistent direction and support from the family and the school.

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: Community Colleges
Community colleges are a great alternative path for many students with the goal of attending a four year college. They tend to be smaller than universities, which means that they offer smaller class sizes, specifically in the areas that tend to have the largest class sizes at 4-year universities. This can be of great use to a struggling student. They are also very affordable, often costing a tenth of what even a public university costs. Most community colleges offer reciprocity with various 4-year colleges, which means students can transfer easily. The curricula of community college classes are also rigorous and often follow 4-year classes, so this is rarely an issue, also.
