Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Willow Springs District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum provides students with the chance to learn the fundamentals in all subject areas and to have hands-on learning experience with their new knowledge. The goal is to introduce students to the topics they will be studying in-depth later on, so in Math students study patterns and relationships so they are able to understand algebra when it's more formally introduced. In all subject areas, literacy is emphasized so that students can read and understand the texts for each subject.
The curriculum stresses critical thinking skills above all else, so that students learn how to think. Following from this, critical reading and analytical writing skills ensure that students are capable not only of forming intelligent opinions but supporting those opinions with facts and data. Strong communication skills are also essential, so that students can share their ideas respectfully and effectively. Science literacy follows quickly on the heels of this, teaching students to study the world around them logically.

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: Recommendations
One step in the college application process is gathering teacher recommendations, and students will want to plan that early so as to give the teacher enough time to right a thoughtful letter. Not all colleges require teacher recommendations, but they will accept them, and most do require them. Colleges ask for from one to three recommendations, so two is a good average to work towards. Colleges want recommendations to come from teachers who’ve taught the student in junior or senior level core academic classes. These teachers give insight into the student’s writing and critical thinking abilities, work ethic, study habits, and generally the student’s viability as a student in college level classes. Personal information isn’t really relevant. The college wants to know how the student works and behaves in class so that they can extrapolate how the student will work and behave in a college class.
