Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Manhattan District Curriculum
Communication skills, science literacy, and critical thinking skills are the primary focus of the Illinois Learning Standards curriculum, along with strong math skills. Students are given real-world applications of their learning to ensure that they can relate and understand the lessons. The goal is to inspire a lifelong love of learning in students so that they will take control of their own learning and become self-guided learners. Students who take responsibility for their own education are more likely to succeed later in life.
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is competitive and rigorous with clearly stated expectations for what students should learn. It uses the Common Core Standards for Math and Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards, which increase the amount of time spent on topics such as engineering and environmental science. Teachers are given the freedom to mold their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of students, whether they need extra help catching up to grade level or more challenging work to keep them interested and engaged.

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) can seem like a great opportunity for students. Though it’s due early, it also usually produces a quick response, with decisions going out before the end of the calendar year, traditionally. The format of the application is the same as a Regular Decision application, with the addition of a contract students must sign agreeing that they will attend this college if accepted. This makes Early Decision binding, so that even if they’re accepted elsewhere or offered a better financial aid package, the applicant must attend this college if accepted. This might seem like a drawback for some, but one benefit is that Early Decision tends to have a much higher acceptance rate than Regular Decision does. Colleges feel that Early Decision applicants have made a commitment to the college, so they are more open to working with the kids and making it work.
