Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glencoe District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards for reading and writing consist of a series of critical goals that are designed for student's to be fully prepared to read closely and have strong comprehension skills after high school. Students read informational texts and literature and learn how to look closely at details to support their understanding of the text's meaning. They are also taught to write analytically and use texts to prove their ideas. There is also a focus on grammar and vocabulary to ensure students are using formal English.
The Common Core State Standards for math call upon students to be well-versed in mathematical problem-solving techniques. They study number systems and operations, algebraic patterns and relationships, geometry and measurement, and proportions and data analysis. They learn how to be precise in their problem-solving tasks, to understand what is being asked in word problems, and to communicate their mathematical thinking when they problem solve. Mathematic literacy, including reading graphs, charts and tables, is also emphasized.

Glencoe District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Illinois Learning Standards are used in both the elementary and secondary school districts to ensure that students have a rigorous education centered on clear expectations for learning. The curriculum incorporates Common Core State Standards in Math and English Language Arts, and is part of the PARCC consortium that has developed a new assessment to determine if students are meeting the objectives. The Illinois Learning Standards also spells out the learning objectives for Science, Social Studies, Languages, and Social Emotional Learning. Expectations for community service are also part of each district’s curriculum.

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: Rolling Applications
One of the biggest downsides to college applications is how long it takes to receive a response. Rolling applications are an application type that tries to solve this problem. They are essentially the same application a student would fill out for Regular Decision or any other application type, but they are handled more quickly and efficiently. First off, instead of setting a due date and waiting until that passes to read applications, colleges who use Rolling applications read all the time. They read the application as soon as they get it, and they tend to respond very quickly, usually within a few weeks, whereas other application types can take months to process. Because of this, Rolling applications don’t offer any sort of special consideration, the way Early Decision does, but they also don’t have any restrictions. They simply offer a quick turnaround without all the hassle.
