Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gilberts District Curriculum
The curriculum focuses on critical thinking skills, analytical writing skills, science literacy, and mathematics skills. Students read many different types of texts in different formats and respond with well-reasoned, researched and supported essays. Students study the world around them and are given real-world applications of lessons. In math classes, they study fewer concepts but at greater depth so that students have a better understanding. In the end, students are given the critical thinking skills and learning they need to be competitive members of our increasingly global economy.
Students are given interventions when necessary, and they are informed of class expectations clearly and promptly. There are also opportunities for students to take on college level work while still in high school through dual enrollment or Advanced Placement courses. Assistance with transitioning to these expectations are built into the curricular expectations of core high school courses. Students are also required to do community service and be able to demonstrate what they learned from their experiences.

Gilberts District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Community Unit School District 300 believe in providing the best education possible to students, regardless of where the students come from, what they look like, or how they learn. In order to accomplish this, those students need to feel like they are in a safe environment and they need to feel capable of succeeding. That’s why the faculty provide a rigorous, challenging curriculum but also offer support for students. Teachers have the freedom to modify their lesson plans to match the individual needs of students, whether that be to challenge an advanced student or help a lagging student catch up to grade level.
We currently cover the following Gilberts-area school district: Community Unit School District 300.

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: Early Action vs. Early Decision
Many students confuse Early Action (EA) applications with Early Decision (ED) applications. The names do seem arbitrary. Both are early, though EA tends to be due November 15, while ED tends to be due November 1. Both can fluctuate according to individual colleges, going earlier or later. The biggest difference is that ED is binding, which means students sign a contract saying they agree to attend this college if accepted. EA doesn’t have that kind of restriction. Because ED is binding, colleges tend to favor ED applicants, leading to higher acceptance rates for ED. EA has higher acceptance rates than Regular Decision, but not as high as ED, though many students feel the tradeoff is fair since they also don’t have to sign a binding contract.
