Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grayslake District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, the Common Core standards emphasize reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing analytical essays to teach students to be critical readers and persuasive writers. These standards are intended to develop students’ ability to research and gather information and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies.
Similarly, in Mathematics, the curriculum emphasizes a depth of instruction focused on a small range of topics within a school year. At the elementary school level, the standards emphasize basic concepts like numbers and operations so that students have mastery of the foundations of mathematics before moving on to more advanced topics in high school. The goal is that students will be able to apply their mathematic skills to real world problems and challenges in high school and beyond.

Grayslake District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools encourage students to engage in challenging tasks in which they draw upon personal strengths and diverse experiences, create meaningful connections, and develop innovative problem-solving skills. With the confidence and character gained from these experiences, it is hoped that students will pursue their individual passions and participate responsibly and effectively in their communities. The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards for Math and English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards, which focus on instructing students in key concepts, whether it be in Math, Science, or English Language Arts.

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: Early Decision vs. Early Action
Early Decision (ED) is an early, binding application. It’s due sooner than other applications, often by November 1st. Since it’s a binding application, students, parents, and a college counselor sign a contract stating that the student will attend this college if accepted. ED applications have some inherent benefits; for example, students compete against fewer other applicants and demonstrate interest in the college, but one drawback is that it is binding, so students who apply ED had better be sure this is their top choice college. Another application type is Early Action (EA). It’s also early but isn’t binding. With EA, students apply early, often November 1st or 15th, but are free to accept offers from other colleges. EA offers the benefit of allowing students to apply early and therefore compete with fewer other students, but doesn’t carry the same weight as ED.
