Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glen Ellyn District Curriculum
Students are encouraged to become critical thinkers who use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems by evaluating and refining different strategies. Students should be effective communicators who observe attentively, speak effectively, write clearly and expressively, and demonstrate strong listening skills. Students are encouraged to apply their acquired knowledge to life experiences. The curriculum also encourages students to demonstrate a commitment to establish, meet, and exceed goals and use resources, technology, and time effectively and efficiently.
The curriculum aims to mold students into responsible individuals who treat themselves and others with respect, whether working in groups or alone. Students are taught to demonstrate ethical behavior and demonstrate positive choices for physical and emotional health. Community service is encouraged as well as an understanding of 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: Staying In Touch
Students are often hesitant to contact college admissions representatives, or, on the flipside, some students will contact representatives with no real goal in mind other than establishing contact. You shouldn’t be afraid to reach out to an admissions representative (that’s part of their job) but you should always have a clear goal in mind. It’s a good idea, after meeting with a representative or touring a campus, to send a Thank-You note, which can be an email. This is a great time to establish contact but don’t labor the point; your goal is to say thanks so say thanks. It’s fine to mention how much you like the school, or what have you, but don’t send them too lengthy of an email. A few sentences is fine. Similarly, reaching out for the first time can be scary, but it helps if you have a specific question in mind. This also means they have to write you back, and you may be able to keep this conversation going, but again, the point is really to get answers to your questions and simply to establish that contact.
