Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wheeling District Curriculum
The primary purpose of the curriculum is to help all students learn the skills, acquire the knowledge, and develop the behaviors necessary for them to reach their full potential as citizens who can meet the challenges of a changing society. The focus is on helping students demonstrate analytic capabilities as well as communication skills including reading, writing, speaking, listening, numeracy, and scientific literacy. Students develop problem solving skills and technological literacy.
This leads to career and life planning skills as well as responsible citizenship and an understanding of ways to participate in an interdependent world while demonstrating concern, understanding, and respect in social interactions. Students are expected to develop and maintain wellness, also, in an environment in which they are physically, psychologically, and emotionally safe, and treated fairly and ethically and expected to treat others fairly and ethically.

Wheeling District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts curricula is based on the Illinois Common Core standards for Math and English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards for science. The focus is on key topics which are implemented in formative grades and then built upon with more complex ideas so that students are ready for college academics. These concepts are then applied in real-world situations. By giving students the ability to connect school learning with real life situations, the district ensures that students understand the value of their education and develop a love of lifelong learning.

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: Studying for Standardized Testing
One complaint students often have is that it’s impossible to study for SAT or ACT testing. This is given as an excuse not to prepare for the tests. The truth is, it’s difficult to study for the content of the tests in certain ways. In general, students might struggle trying to study more advanced topics than they’ve had in classes, though they can certainly attempt to memorize certain key concepts such as vocabulary. One way students can prepare for standardized tests is to “study” strategies. One of the most important elements of these tests is the time factor, and strategies can help students deal with this effectively. Also, strategies can help students not be intimidated by the tests, themselves. Looking at the structure of certain questions can give clues as to what type of answer to look for can help students guess more effectively. Developing reading strategies can help students conserve time when facing long reading passages. Even realizing that it’s okay (and even necessary) to skip certain questions can help students conserve valuable time and energy on these tests.
