Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Swansea District Curriculum
The schools believe in providing a student-centered environment that fosters the intellectual, physical, and moral growth of their students. In these rigorous, supportive educational environments, students are challenged but also given interventions when necessary. The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards so that all students are provided an equally strong education. The seven areas of learning encompassed by the standards include English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Technology Arts, Career Development and Occupational Studies, Social Studies. Health, Physical Education and Family and Consumer Science, and Languages Other Than English.
The primary goal of the curriculum is to enhance critical thinking skills, exercise analytical reasoning to solve problems, and to apply this learning to real-world events when possible. Students are taught to be effective critical thinkers and communicators who observe and listen attentively and write and speak cogently and persuasively.

Swansea District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local districts consist of multiple campuses that each have a rich tradition of providing educational excellence to their students. The schools strive to prepare graduates to enter the workforce and/or continue their educational pursuits after graduation. The schools offer a wide range of curricular offerings along with many co-curricular groups. In 2004, District 201 was selected to receive the “What Parents Want” award given by School Match, a nationwide service that helps corporate employees and their families find schools that match the needs of their children.

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: 2-Year Vs. 4-Year Colleges
Community colleges used to have a bad reputation. There were considered a last resort—a place someone goes because they can’t get into a four-year college. The reality is much different from this old-fashioned attitude, though. There are many advantages to attending a community college. Price is the biggest advantage. Community college classes tend to cost a tenth as much as even state college classes. Community colleges provide mostly basic classes that almost every student has to take. At a larger college, enrollment sizes for these basic classes can be crowded, but community colleges tend to have small class sizes. Community colleges are very aware of the needs of students and offer support for students who may have been out of the classroom for a while. And lastly, community college credits will transfer to most four-year colleges, just as any college will.
