Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Alton District Curriculum
Critical thinking, critical reading, and analytical writing skills are taught in all subject areas so that students will become strong communicators. Students read a variety of different kinds of texts in different formats, from novels to nonfiction in print and digital formats and develop their ability to evaluate and analyze these texts. They read for understanding and also to examine authorial intent, structure and craft, and to develop their own opinions, which they support through research and evidence.
The school provides a comprehensive, competitive curriculum for its students intended to give them the knowledge and skills they need to succeed after graduation, whether they immediately enter the workforce or instead pursue postsecondary education or enter the armed forces. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn in each class and are also given clear expectations for their behavior. Students are expected to interact in a healthy, respectful way that demonstrates respect for themselves and others.

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: Public vs. Private College
The basic difference between a pubic and a private college is how they’re funded. Private colleges are tuition-driven, which means the bulk of their operating budget comes from tuition. Because of this, most private colleges tend to have high tuitions, some of them extremely high. But they also tend to treat students more like customers, which means that they try to make the college experience more enjoyable and well-rounded. Some examples of this would be the housing that’s offered, the dining hall experience, and the academic support that’s offered to students, which tends to be more hands-on than at public universities. Also, private schools tend to be organized into colleges, whereas public tend to be universities, though there are exceptions to this.
