Rockford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In the city of Rockford, Illinois, students attend Rockford Public Schools #205. This district is dedicated to what the district calls “Readiness Rocks” and this program is designed to prepare students for college and career. They do this by providing seven class periods each day where students are engaged in 21st century skills to prepare them for college from the moment they enter preschool to the time they graduate from high school. Students become increasingly independent learners through this model who are able to find information and use it in their studies or professional plans.
We currently cover the following Rockford-area school district: Rockford Public Schools #205.

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: How to Reward Good Grades
In today's world, it is important to show recognition to students who have worked hard to earn good grades. Some schools like to reward good grades with food, but this can leave out students who have food allergies, sensitivities, and other food-related issues. In elementary and middle school, students can be recognized with things like pencils, drawings for special prizes, giving students a longer recess on a special day, or rewarding them with a free homework pass. There are many alternative rewards that teachers and administrators can give that all students can enjoy.
