Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Itasca District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum introduces students to a variety of literacy, communication, and problem-solving skills that they will use throughout their education. They are introduced to basic concepts in science and the process of scientific reasoning that is undergone. The reading curriculum emphasizes reading literary, informational, and foundational texts so that students can read across subject areas with proficiency. They also learn how to speak, listen, and be part of a group activity so to develop their collaborative skills.
The curriculum promotes critical thinking, active reading, and analytical writing skills as well as encouraging science literacy and problem solving skills in real-world situations. Students read complex, challenging texts in a variety of formats and mediums. They read for understanding but also to look at the nuts and bolts of how the piece was assembled. Students develop ideas based on their reading and do research to gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned essays. They also learn presentation skills and the process of giving and receiving feedback.

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: Fast Aps
Fast Aps are a kind of fast turnaround application. They might go by many names, but they have several characteristics in common. They aren’t usually openly available; the college will invite students to apply this way, though sometimes they are offered on the college’s website. Fast Aps promise a quick turnaround, usually a few weeks. They are also usually stripped-down; they don’t require all the elements of a usual application. There might be one essay, if that, and it’s usually a short one. They don’t always require recommendations. They don’t require a resume or portfolio. They do require transcripts and test scores, and essentially, these are the basis for the college’s decision. The application itself is usually pretty basic, also.
