Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Silvis District Curriculum
The goal of the Illinois Learning Standards is to prepare its students for productive, successful futures by insuring that they become educated, responsible citizens. The school believes that all students deserve to succeed, regardless of their backgrounds or learning needs. Faculty are given the freedom to tailor their lessons to fit the individual needs of students, whether that be to help a struggling student catch up to grade level, or to provide more challenging work for a high-performing student.
Students are given clear expectations for what they are expected to demonstrate in each grade level and in each class, and the focus of each class is in preparing students to be creative problem solvers who have gained the tools and learning they need to be competitive members of our increasingly global community. Each year, students use some of what they learned in past years to master new and more complex topics. This allows them to both reflect and analyze, which is a key to the development of strong critical thinking skills.

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: Components of a College Application
Each piece of a college application serves a different function and provides different information. The application itself mostly only provides biographical information, though the essay/s can be very useful. The essay/s can provide insight into the student’s goals and passions. One of the most important elements a college is looking for is what the student is passionate about—or, really, the fact that the student is passionate about something. The transcript is really the most important part for most colleges. It includes the course list and the grade point average. This, along with the school profile, can help the college decide how ready the student is for college-level work. Standardized test scores do this same work for colleges that accept them.
