Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oswego District Curriculum
The curriculum is drawn from the Illinois Common Core Standards, which strives to teach students to critical thinkers who use analytical thinking to gather information, analyze that information, and evaluate and refine strategies for solving problems. Students should be able to read for comprehension and synthesis, use a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information. Students should be effective communicators who speak and write clearly and expressively. Students should understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum.
It is hoped that students will take responsibility for their own learning. The end goal of this curriculum is to prepare students for post-secondary educations and the working world. Students must be able to operate within a global context and work within a variety of groups to achieve goals. Therefore, students must also demonstrate ethical behavior and respect different for individuals, cultures, races, and genders.

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: Differences Between Colleges and Universities
The literal difference between a college and a university has to do with how the school is organized. A university is organized into schools or colleges, usually based on majors or academic similarities. So there might be a school of business or a college of engineering. These schools operate somewhat independently and might require separate admission into that specific school. These schools operate under the umbrella of the university. A college, on the other hand, doesn’t have this tightly structured organization. Colleges tend to be smaller than universities, though some universities are quite small, and a handful of colleges might even be larger than some universities. But the largest centers of higher education are universities. Universities tend to have more graduate programs, though colleges often have a handful of graduate programs. State schools tend to be universities, regardless of size.
