Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenview District Curriculum
The high schools promote a common curriculum which supports students’ success and creates opportunities for individual expression. The development of the students as critically thinking individuals and members of the community is stressed. Literacy is at the forefront of learning and strong reading comprehension skills are taught in all subjects so students have a sense of scientific and technical literacy, in addition to the development critical reading skills with literary works.
Students have the opportunity for success inside and outside of the classroom through numerous athletic and activities programs. The schools offer twenty-nine different competitive sports as well as a series of club sports. Each school also hosts from 70-80 different clubs and activities for students throughout the year. Involvement in the community and volunteer activities are promoted by the school as well in an effort to invest students in their community and vice versa.

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 Essay
One of the most important things to consider when writing the college application essay is tone. Tone is how something is communicated. Topic is, obviously, important, but how something is said can be much more important than even what is said. Consider this: one event can be described in many different ways with many different results. The same experience could be described in such a way as to inspire pity in a reader, or admiration, or humor; the only real difference is the tone. Tone should be considered because it affects how the reader responds to the essay. Do you want the reader to feel pity? Or to feel admiration? Or to laugh? Any of these responses could be useful objectives but without paying attention to tone, you won’t be able to steer the reader in the direction you want. And keep in mind that tone can be created and changed with miniscule word choices. Sometimes, one word in a paragraph can change the entire flow of that paragraph.
