Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chester District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is rigorous and well-researched and provides challenging coursework for students with clear expectations of the skills and knowledge they should acquire by the end of each year. The curriculum is also supportive and fair, with teachers being encouraged to tailor their lessons to fit the individual needs of students, whether they need to be challenged with advanced coursework or they need help to catch up to grade level, and teachers provide interventions when necessary.
Classes focus on critical thinking skills across the curriculum as well as analytical writing skills. Reading is focused on both literary and informational texts so students have the necessary analytic skills to comprehend each. Students are also given many extracurricular opportunities to further their development, from men’s and women’s club and varsity sports, to performing arts and music, clubs, and community service. Well-rounded, engaged students are more likely to become engaged adults who take control of their own lives and achieve success.

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: Fast Aps
Fast Aps are shortened applications that offer a quick decision. Usually, the only real requirements are the application itself, which might contain one brief essay, the transcript, and standardized test scores. The school promises to reach a decision usually within a few weeks. Usually, nothing else is required, and the application fee is often waived. These are high-volume applications usually offered by state schools. If a student fits the profile in terms of GPA and test scores, but isn’t strong enough to warrant applying for Honors or other special programs, Fast Aps can be a no-brainer. They’re easier, cheaper, and quicker. If a student is on the borderline, though, a Fast Ap probably isn’t a good idea. Some of those other documents that aren’t part of the application—like recommendations, additional essays, or doing an interview—can really help push the student over that line into being accepted, and a Fast Ap could be disastrous.
