Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clinton District Curriculum
The language arts curriculum categorizes standards by reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. The standards explain what students will be able to do, fall under the anchors; for reading, these are key ideas and details, craft and structure, integration of knowledge and ideas, and range of reading and level of text complexity. They are taught how to look for biased language and use it to shape their analysis. Writing, speaking and listening, and language each have specific anchors of their own.
Graduates are instilled with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful, productive, and responsible members of an evolving society. In order to accomplish these goals, Clinton High School stresses that students must respect themselves and others. Students are given clear expectations for socially acceptable behavior and are expected to make healthy, positive choices. Students are also expected to meet high academic standards. These expectations are clearly demonstrated and communicated to students.

Clinton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Clinton CUSD offers a challenging curriculum that prepares students for college and/or career and is mindful of individual student needs and goals. Communication skills, science literacy, and critical thinking skills are highly valued and instilled in students. The hope is that students will take control of their own learning and become self-guided learners, not only in high school but for the rest of their lives. Active, engaged learners have more success academically, socially, and in their own lives, and also tend to be more involved in their community. This student-centered approach gives each student the best opportunity to be successful.
We currently cover the following Clinton-area school district: Clinton Community Unit School District #15.

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: College Applications
There are many different types of college applications that have come into vogue in the last few years. Regular Decision is the most common. This is a straight-forward application, requiring the application itself, which mostly consists of biographical information, at least one essay, though sometimes more, one to three teacher recommendations, the transcript and a school profile, supplied by your counselor, and possibly other items, such as a resume. Most applications require all of these things, and the biggest difference between types is the due date. Regular Decision might be due December 1st, though it also might be later. Rolling applications don’t really have a set due date, and they also lead to quick responses. Early Action is usually due November 15th and also leads to a fairly quick decision. Early Decision is early and binding, meaning that student agree to attend that college if accepted.
