Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Western Springs District Curriculum
The school prides itself on providing a rigorous, supportive classroom environment that challenges students but also allows for interventions and support when necessary. The school’s curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are internationally refereed guidelines intended to offer all students an equal education, regardless of location. It is hoped that students will grow to develop an appreciation of the role of learning for its own sake and become equipped to challenge the future in our increasingly global environment.
Critical thinking skills are the main focus of the curriculum. Students solve problems, evaluate and refine strategies using critical and analytical thinking. Students gather and analyze evidence which they use to support their theses when writing or conducting experiments. Opportunities are given to students whenever possible to transfer their newly acquired knowledge to life experiences.

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: State Vs. Private Colleges
There are advantages and disadvantages to private and public colleges. One of the most important considerations comes with tuition and the value of in-state tuition at a public college. Public colleges tend to be less expensive to attend, though there are a handful of private colleges with low price tags, and a competitive student may well qualify for scholarships and grants that will make a private college’s cost competitive. In a basic sense, private colleges approach students more like customers, which means they are more concerned with students’ experience. However, many states have an extensive network of schools and some specialize in different areas. Because of this, and because private colleges tend to be smaller than public colleges, class sizes tend to be smaller and students tend to have the opportunity to interact with professors more closely. Public colleges can be small, though, and can offer strong support services for students as well.
