Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glencoe District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum helps children develop the foundational skills they need to be effective readers. Students learn about consonants and vowels, and how to correctly assign sounds to each letter of the alphabet. Children also learn to associate long and short sounds associated with vowels. Common words are introduced as well, with learners gaining the ability to read words such as ‘the,’ ‘is,’ ‘he,’ and ‘she’ by sight. Decoding one-syllable words is a skill acquired at this level as well.
Glencoe’s elementary social studies curriculum helps students explore various elements related to the study of people, places, and time. Learners find examples in history of an individual making a significant impact on the people of his or her time period, such as Galileo, Joan of Arc, Martin Luther King, and George Washington. The interaction between humans and the environment is explored as well. Students identify areas that were ideal for human settlements, such as areas along rivers, and compare how ancient river civilizations were similar and different in terms of their structure and function.

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: Preparing For College in Sophomore Year
As a student enters his sophomore year in high school, their thoughts turn more and more to college. To help keep them on track, here are some dates to keep in mind. Before beginning classes in the fall, the student needs to make sure that the classes they are taking, and the activities they participate, are challenging enough to help set them apart, while allowing success. If there are doubts, the teen should talk with parents and guidance counselors about any changes that may need to be made. The PSAT should be scheduled early in October. This would be considered a practice test. The ACT Plan, if offered can also be taken at this time. Both of these tests can be used as a baseline for national tests. In the second semester, students should begin planning the classes for their junior year, keeping in mind that, if comfortable with the choice, an AP class would be beneficial. SAT Subject Tests should be taken in May and June. Each of these items will help the student be prepared for the next step toward the college they desire.
