Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northbrook District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum in Northbrook focuses on several domains, including reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students in elementary school acquire beginner skills that provide a solid foundation for expanded learning and skill development in middle school. By the final two years of high schools, students have the appropriate skill level to extract key details and ideas from literary works. Students at this level work with theme, examining how authors develop the theme throughout the text.
Northbrook’s students explore a variety of subjects, including visual and performing arts. This curriculum includes a study of theatre and dramatic arts. In middle school, students in the theatre program learn about various styles of theatre, comparing and contrasting the features of comedies, dramas, and tragedies. Learners analyze various aspects of theatrical works, including the common emotions and conflicts that a dramatic character usually encounters.

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: Academic Benefits of Extracurricular Activities
Extracurricular activities offer students a chance to learn valuable skills outside the classroom. From interpersonal communication to teamwork to time management, clubs, organizations, and sports can help promote the development of these skills, which are essential for success. Extracurricular activities can promote the development of academic skills as well. Studies show that students who participate in out-of-class activities demonstrate better achievement on classroom assessments and standardized tests. It is believed that the focus, attention, and commitment required to be successful in activities translates into focus, attention, and commitment in the classroom, thus resulting in higher grades. Research also shows that involvement in sports and other activities helps kids develop more refined problem solving and critical thinking skills. Put to use in the classroom, these higher ordered skills help students reach their fullest academic potential.
