Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Quincy District Curriculum
The district follows the Illinois Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards to provide a framework for each subject area. The goal of each subject is to present students with the major topics in the discipline and then continually deepen their knowledge and understanding over the years. For instance, in Language Arts, writing begins in the elementary years and they are gradually taught ways to structure and organize their writing so they are able to write in a variety of analytic styles in high school.
The Math curriculum builds skills in numerical operations, algebra, geometry, and probability beginning during the early years and also increases the difficulty of each topic and the associated skills which students are taught each year. As students get into high school, they will find that the full year courses introduce them to concepts like geometric proofs, linear and non-linear equations, statistics and will have the tools to solve problems in each of these areas.

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: What Not To Look For In A College
There are more than three thousand, five hundred colleges and universities in the US. It can be daunting for students to sift through them, and many of the things one usually notices about colleges may not be the best qualities from which to pick a college to attend. For example, some colleges are famous for their athletics. If a student is an athlete, this can certainly be an important thing to consider when selecting a college, but otherwise, this can really be misleading. Many heavily athletic universities are also very large universities with large class sizes which may be detrimental to some students’ learning styles. Similarly, some students will look at a college’s location more closely than the strength of the college’s programs. Some students will consider even more arbitrary things such as a school’s colors. The most important things for prospective students to consider, on the other hand, are their educational needs and whether or not the college will successfully meet them.
