Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Elgin District Curriculum
The English language arts and history curriculums emphasize the reading of nonfiction over fiction, the writing of analytical essays over creative writing, and working with complex texts and a focus on expanding vocabularies. The purpose is to teach students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers. In mathematics, the curriculum encourages a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics, focusing on numerical operations, algebra and geometry, each school year.
Beginning at the elementary school level, these standards stress basic ideas such as numbers and operations to ensure students master the foundations of mathematics before progressing to advanced topics in high school. The intent is to instill necessary principals in students to prepare them to apply their math skills to real-world problems and challenges throughout their academic careers and beyond.

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: College vs. University
The differences between a college and a university aren’t always apparent, though there are many preconceptions. Fundamentally, the difference is how they are organized. A college is simply a collection of educational departments, whereas a university is split up into colleges or schools, which are usually comprised of specific departments. For example, a university might contain the College of Engineering or the School of Nursing. These schools operate somewhat autonomously under the umbrella of the university. Other differences are less clear-cut. Universities tend to be bigger, though plenty of them are fairly small. Universities tend to offer more graduate programs, though many colleges offer some graduate programs. Public schools tend to be universities, though there are plenty of private universities as well. For all intents and purposes there are few real differences between the two that matter to prospective students.
