Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westmont District Curriculum
The curriculum emphasizes measuring student progress during the course of each year and measuring how well students master content and can apply or demonstrate that mastery, and how well students demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills as well as creative expression. The application of knowledge in each subject is tied to as many real world topics or problems as possible. State assessments in core subjects assess not only students but also the whole school.
Teachers are given flexibility to present material creatively, and students with different learning styles are held to the same high standards though also given the support they need in order to succeed. The goal is that students thrive and take responsibility for their own learning so that they become lifelong learners who will be prepared for post-secondary education and the working world.

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: Fast Apps
College applications can be stressful and require a lot of time. Many colleges offer “Fast Apps,” which are short applications that offer a quick decision. What students gain from this is, obviously, a quick decision, and what colleges gain from it is less paperwork. But the “shortness” of the application can be a detriment to some applicants. These applications usually only require a brief application, transcripts, and not even recommendations or essays. But recommendations and an essay could be the things to push a borderline student’s application into the “accepted” range. Recommendations and essays, resumes, and other supporting materials can help clarify a student’s transcript and performance and can “damage control” any possibly deleterious aspects. If a student is a slam dunk for a college, then a Fast App. is probably the way to go. Otherwise, even though it means having to wait a little longer, a regular application might be of more benefit.
