Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Prospect District Curriculum
For mathematics, the Common Core encourages a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics during a school year. Beginning at the elementary school level, these standards stress basic ideas like numbers and operations to ensure that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle school and high school. The intent is to instill basic principals in students so that they will be able to apply their math skills to real world problems.
The English Language Common Core standards emphasize the reading of nonfiction over fiction, the writing of analytical essays, and working with more complex texts. The hope is to develop students’ abilities to gather information and use evidence to support their claims. There’s also a focus on expanding vocabularies. Students do often read some fiction and write creatively, but the Common Core places emphasis on nonfiction and analytical writing.

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.

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: What’s the Difference Between a College and a University?
This can be a confusing distinction because there are many similarities between the two. Specifically, the difference has to do with how the institution is organized. A University is arranged in “schools” or “colleges,” usually with a specific academic focus, such as “The College of Business.” Students then study in that specific college or school. Colleges don’t have this organization. There are several less clear-cut distinctions. One reason colleges aren’t organized this way is because they are too small, whereas universities tend to be larger, though there are plenty of small universities and some colleges that could change their designation but don’t, usually for historical or name-recognition purposes. Also, universities tend to offer more graduate programs, though plenty of colleges have graduate programs. Colleges tend to have fewer graduate programs than universities, though. There are other minor distinctions as well; state institutions tend to be universities, but more and more private institutions are reorganizing themselves into universities.
