Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Creve Coeur District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards form the basis of teaching and learning throughout each student's education. The English language arts curriculum has been redesigned so that it provides a greater focus on non-fiction informational texts in addition to fictional literary works. The goal is to make sure students have the appropriate reading skills to understand and analyze texts in all their classes and also to be able to recognize bias and authorial intent. This also helps students to be able to find and evaluate texts while doing their own research.
The district believes that all students should be given equal opportunities to learn, and teachers are given the freedom to tailor their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of their students, whether they need help to catch up to grade level, or whether they need to be challenged more. The schools also incorporate Advanced Placement courses into their high school curriculum so that students can begin on college-level courses in areas where they excel, and also earn college credit if they are able to pass the end of year Advanced Placement exams.

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 several elements to a college application, each with their own purpose. The application, itself, is mostly demographic information, though it does include one or more essays, usually. This essay is a very useful thing for the college application committee because it affords them an opportunity to really get to know the applicant’s personality in a way that isn’t possible anywhere else in the application. The transcript is probably the most important part, since it contains the list of classes the student has taken and the grades s/he has received. This gives the committee some insight into how the student has done in classes, how difficult the classes have been, and how the student has dealt with challenges.
