Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Galesburg District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students read nonfiction and complex texts for comprehension and synthesis of ideas. They collect and organize information, analyze ideas and present specific examples to support their arguments. Students should be effective communicators, both in the written and spoken word. In mathematics, students are expected to be critical thinkers, as well, to use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems as well as evaluating and refining strategies for solving these problems.
In a larger sense, students are taught to be responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their actions, and make good choice for physical and emotional health. Students are expected to become socially responsible members of the larger, global community who show respect for individuals, culture, races, and genders other than their own in addition to exercising the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

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: The College Resume
A common cry of college students, when asked to create a resume, is “I don’t have any work experience!” The reality is that the college resume isn’t quite the same as a career resume. College resumes should be populated with activities, accomplishments, examples of community service, and information that reflects a student’s extra-curricular activities. College resumes are a page long, no longer. They are a basic fact sheet for college admissions counselors to refer to when considering a student’s application. The format of these resumes varies, but certain themes should always remain. The name, address, and GPA should be at the top of the resume, usually centered. Below that, activities are grouped according to various topics such as “Leadership Activities” and “Community Service.” Some students will attempt to add hobbies or travel experiences, but these might not be worth putting on a resume. A good rule of thumb is that if an activity can do “double-duty” for a student, include it; this means that the activity can demonstrate at least two strong, positive qualities that colleges are interested in.
