Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Robinson District Curriculum
The school’s curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards in order to provide a rigorous, quality education to students in order to ensure that they become competitive citizens after graduation. The ILS incorporates Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts/Literacy within its broader framework. The Common Core Standards organize learning in each subject around the major topics - such as algebra, geometry, or data analysis in Math - and require that students build their knowledge each year.
Students are given clear expectations of what they’re supposed to learn by the end of each school year. Teachers are given the freedom to tailor their lessons to fit the needs of individual students in order to ensure success, whether that be to provide challenging work to high-performing students or remedial work to struggling students in order to catch them up to grade level. Students are taught the skills and given the knowledge necessary to ensure that they are competitive graduates ready to take on the challenges of our increasingly global economy.

Robinson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Illinois Standards is used as the curriculum for all schools in Serena Community Unit School District. The district strives to maintain a safe, productive academic atmosphere in which all students are given opportunities to succeed, regardless of learning style. Supports and enhancement services are available for all students. Students are held to a high standard and expected to “step up” and become engaged in their own learning while being supported well enough to ensure that they can and will succeed. In this way, they are more likely to achieve success later in life as engaged, active citizens.
We currently cover the following Robinson-area school district: Serena Community Unit School District 2.

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: Early Action
Early Action (EA) is an early, nonbinding college application type. Deadlines are usually in mid-November, though they can be due earlier. Because they are due early, applicants compete against fewer other applicants, since fewer students have applied. Early Action applications are usually lumped in with Early Decision applications, and because of this have higher acceptance rates, though not as high as Early Decision. Colleges favor Early Action because students have demonstrated interest in the college by applying early. Because they’re nonbinding and unrestricted, Early Action applications are often a good choice for applicants, since they have several benefits with few downsides. Early Action applicants are free to apply to other colleges and aren’t bound to enroll if accepted.
