Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Morton Grove District Curriculum
In humanities classes, the curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction and complex texts and writing analytical essays. Students develop their abilities to gather information from reading, build arguments based on that information, and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. By focusing on these elements, students become critical readers and persuasive writers. In mathematics, the curriculum emphasizes a focus on key concepts in depth, so that students delve deeply into select important, foundational concepts, rather than broadly covering many.
Beginning at the elementary level, the curriculum covers basic concepts such as numbers and operations so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school. In science, the curriculum follows the Next Generation Science Standards, which focus on key concepts early on to give students a solid foundation and prepare them for more advanced work.

Morton Grove District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Morton Grove follow the Illinois Common Core Standards, which is a rigorous, internationally researched curriculum intended to motivate students towards lifelong learning by focusing on real-world applications of ideas. The curriculum has a clear set of expectations for what students should know at the end of each grade level and requires all students to meet similarly high standards. The curriculum focuses on skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world, and because the curriculum is benchmarked with international standards, students should be well equipped to compete in a global economy.
We currently cover the following Morton Grove-area school districts: East Maine School District 63, Gold School District 67, Morton Grove School District 70, and Skokie-Morton Grove School District 69.

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: SAT vs. ACT
Most colleges require standardized testing from applicants. The purpose of these tests is to demonstrate how well a student will do in college. There are two different tests offered: the SAT and the ACT, and every college will accept either or both. There are certain basic differences and also similarities between the two. Both include an essay, though for the SAT it comes first, and for the ACT it comes last. (The ACT also has an essay-optional version, but since all colleges want the essay as well, this is rarely taken.) The ACT has a science section, which the SAT lacks. In terms of the approach of the tests, the ACT tends to be more big-picture. Students with a solid education will do well on the ACT; similarly, students with learning differences tend to fare better on the ACT because of its approach. One way to sum up these differences is to consider that the ACT asks students to correct errors, whereas the SAT simply asks them to find errors.
