Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elmwood Park District Curriculum
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards, an internationally competitive curriculum intended to offer all students the same rigorous educational opportunities, regardless of location. The curriculum teaches students to read for comprehension and synthesis, to use a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information, and to collect, organize, analyze, and retain information.
Students are molded into critical thinkers who use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems. This involves evaluating and refining strategies to find the best solutions. Students are also taught to transfer their acquired knowledge to life experiences whenever possible. Students are expected to be effective communicators who observe attentively, speak effectively, write clearly and expressively, and demonstrate good listening skills.

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 Application Types
There are four primary types of college applications with varying deadlines and requirements for students. The most common is Regular Decision. These applications don’t have any special requirements, other than the application, transcripts, standardized test scores, recommendations, and any other accompanying documents like resumes. Another type of application is Rolling. The difference between Rolling and Regular Decision is that colleges set a deadline for applications, but even if you turn it in early, they still won’t read it until the deadline has passed. With Rolling, colleges read the application as soon as a student sends it, so response times tend to be fairly quick. A third application type is Early Action. Early Action applications have an earlier deadline, and therefore decisions tend to be somewhat quick. Deadlines might be as early as November 1st or 15th. Early Decision is the fourth kind of application. This is very similar to Early Action, except that it’s binding; students sign a contract, along with parents, stating that they agree to attend this college if accepted.
