Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hawthorn Woods District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is meant to provide a competitive education which will ensure students will be capable of achieving success after graduation, whether they pursue post-secondary education or directly enter the workforce. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn, and teachers are given the freedom to modify their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of students, whether that mean to help struggling students catch up to grade level, or providing challenging work.
In this way, teachers strive for success for every student, which is another tenet of the districts goals. Teaching students how to take responsibility for their learning is another goal. To that end, students are expected to participate in community service projects and present what they learned from the experience. Students are held accountable for their own educations as well as their own behaviors; they are taught to take personal responsibility in the hopes that they will become engaged, successful citizens after graduation.

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
Early Decision (ED) are early, binding applications. Students apply, usually by November 1st, and sign a contract agreeing to attend this college if accepted. This can be beneficial, since colleges tend to favor students willing to make this commitment. Acceptance rates for Early Decision applicants tend to be significantly higher than Regular Decision. One downside is that they are binding, which means students must attend the college if accepted, even if they are offered a better financial aid package elsewhere. Other than being binding, Early Decision applications don’t differ from other applications in any meaningful way. The early due-date is a hard date; even standardized test scores must be received by that date for the application to be considered.
