Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Machesney Park District Curriculum
The curriculum is designed as skill and knowledge based, and is intended to provide a structure for learning that is orderly, and effective. The instructional environment promotes respect and encourages citizenship which enhances students’ academic success and prepares them to be contributing members of society. The curriculum is research and evidence based and aligned with college and work expectations.
In mathematics and science classes, students build on foundational concepts so that they have a comprehensive understanding which prepares them for more challenging work. In humanities classes, students analyze complex texts and build effective research skills. Students write analytical papers and demonstrate their use of evidence to support arguments. Whenever possible, the curriculum tries to apply problems and ideas to real-world situations so that students are prepared for real-life and practical situations beyond the classroom.

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: ED vs. EDII
Students are looking for any leg up to help them get into college. Early Decision (ED) is an early, binding application. It benefits students by establishing their serious commitment to this college as well as letting them apply while competing against fewer other applicants, since it’s early. Since it is binding, students can only apply to one college at a time with ED. They can apply to other schools, but if the one they applied ED to accepts them, that’s where they’re going. But if the student is rejected or waitlisted, s/he is free to apply elsewhere ED. Unfortunately, the deadlines have usually passed for this, which is where EDII comes in. This is a second round of ED available to students. Usually, students who’ve applied to competitive schools and are waitlisted or rejected will apply EDII to a second tier school. All the same rules apply as with ED, just a later deadline.
