Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Centralia District Curriculum
In English and humanities classes, the focus is on analytical skills. Students read primarily nonfiction and writer primarily argumentative essays to analyze their reading. They gather, analyze, and evaluate evidence to support their theses when writing. Students are also expected to develop active listening skills and observational skills. Students are encouraged to take an active role in their own education in order to develop an appreciation for learning.
It is hoped that these techniques will instill a life-long love of learning in students, whether they continue to post-secondary education or enter the workforce directly after high school. Students also learn to manage their time effectively and to set goals, and not only achieve them but exceed them. Community service activities offer students a chance to gain project planning and management skills and have been incorporated into the broader expectations of the curriculum.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Centralia students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Centralia District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Curriculum, which is a refereed curriculum based on international standards so that graduates are competitive on a global level. In math and science classes, students build on solid, foundational concepts with real-world applications and demonstrations. The focus is on fewer topics in a year, and on covering those topics thoroughly so that students are fully prepared to move on. Teachers try to apply lessons to the physical world when possible so that students have a deeper understanding.

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 Applications
There are several types of college applications with early deadlines for competitive prospective students who are interested in getting a leg up. Colleges promote these early deadline applications heavily, sending out mail and email announcements asking students to apply early, offering incentives and promises of early notice. Some will even waive application fees if applicants apply early. There can be several advantages to early applications, not least of which being that colleges tend to inform early applicants of acceptance decisions early. Another advantage is that students who have been accepted early have the opportunity to receive financial aid decisions earlier, apply for housing earlier, and be finished with the process earlier. Of course, having to complete applications early can be stressful, but the payoff at the end could well be worth it for some applicants.
