Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Godfrey District Curriculum
It is hoped that students will take responsibility for their own learning and demonstrate a commitment to establish and meet goals. Students are expected to treat themselves and others with respect and work within a variety of groups to achieve goals, assuming various roles effectively in a cooperative setting. Students should demonstrate ethical behavior and accept responsibility for their actions and decisions, and to demonstrate positive choices for physical and emotional health.
In humanities classes, students are trained to understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum. Students are taught to read for comprehension and synthesis and use a variety of techniques and resources to acquire supporting evidence. Students learn to be critical thinkers by learning to analyze problems, evaluate and refine strategies for solving them, and gather evidence. Students are also taught to transfer knowledge to life experiences.

Godfrey District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts philosophy is that students will perform at a high level of academic achievement by mastering the district curriculum, which is based on the Illinois Common Core Curriculum. The school uses analysis of assessment data to determine students’ level of mastery and uses research-based interventions, delivered by highly-qualified staff, to promote academic success when students are in danger of ‘slipping through the cracks.’ There are also a wealth of extracurricular opportunities for students to participate in and help develop skills they will use in future pursuits.
We currently cover the following Godfrey-area school district: Alton School District.

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.

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: SAT vs. ACT
The SAT, or Scholastic Aptitude Test, is a standardized test intended to evaluate a student’s potential in college. The ACT, or American College Testing, is a different standardized test developed to combat perceived cultural and gender biases on the SAT. Both have since been reevaluated to eliminate these biases. The difference between the two is, in basic terms, that on the SAT, students identify errors, whereas on the ACT students correct errors. Also, the order of sections is difference, with the essay given first with the SAT and last with the ACT. The ACT also has an option to take the test without the essay. A major difference between the two is that the ACT includes a science section, whereas the SAT does not. Also, the math section on the ACT is perceived to be generally more difficult. Colleges will accept either test.
