Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marengo District Curriculum
Communication skills are also essential. Students are taught strong critical thinking and critical reading skills. They read for understanding as well as to build an understanding of authorial intent. They come up with their own theses and gather evidence to support these, which is presented in oral presentations and written analytical essays. Students read a variety of different kinds of texts and write about them in a variety of different mediums and formats so that they will be strong, thoughtful communicators.
In science classes, students learn to test their observations and their ideas with methodical analysis and scientific reasoning. They begin with observing and studying the world around them and progress to more complicated concepts such as engineering and physics. The development of scientific literacy is a major goal of the curriculum. The skills, techniques, and knowledge students learn are intended to prepare them for success after graduation, whether they directly enter the workforce or pursue post-secondary education.

Marengo District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Both elementary districts and the high school district use the comprehensive K-12 Illinois Learning Standards for their curriculum. The curriculum consists of a series of learning objectives in each subject at each grade level. The schools value their students as individuals who each have their own needs and interests but who all can succeed. Diversity is valued and students are taught to respect each other’s differences in order to prepare them for success after graduation in our increasingly diverse global community. Students are taught to value the opinions of others and to work well within groups.
We currently cover the following Marengo-area school districts: Riley Community Consolidated School District 18, Marengo Community High School District 154, and Marengo-Union Elementary School District 165.

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: Rolling Applications
Rolling applications are a type of college application. “Rolling” refers to the deadline, which keeps “rolling on.” Essentially, Rolling applications don’t have a set deadline. They open at a certain point, usually very early, maybe even over the summer, and they end at a certain time, usually quite late, maybe as late as March. During that period, students are free to apply whenever they like. The biggest benefit of Rolling applications is the quick response time, which is often two to three weeks. The reason they are able to do this, is because with Rolling applications, colleges read as soon as they receive the application. With other application types, colleges tend to wait until the deadline to make decisions, and then get swamped with applications.
