Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilmette District Curriculum
The Common Core uses formative standards so students are prepared for post-secondary education and the workforce. In English Language Arts and other humanities classes, the curriculum focuses on persuasive and analytic writing and reading complex texts, primarily nonfiction. Students are taught to be critical readers and effective writers, and develop strong research skills so they can gather information, analyze it, and use it to support their claims while building arguments.
In Math, the focus is on fundamental skills and concepts which are essential for students to master before moving on to higher-level reasoning. Because mathematics is the cornerstone of much of science, the curriculum attempts to give students opportunities to apply their knowledge to real-world problems and challenges. In science classes, students examine the world around them. They focus on necessary ideas which will serve them throughout their academic and work careers.

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: Early Application Deadlines
Early application deadlines are a hot trend amongst college applicants. Many colleges offer early admissions options, which can have positive and negative consequences. One positive is that the student is competing against fewer applicants. Though this is true, more and more students are applying early, so this is becoming less true. Another positive is that the student demonstrates interest in the college by applying early. A possible downside is that the student might rush his/her application in order to get it in on time. Some schools are pushing their deadlines to as early as mid-October, which can be very stressful for students. This has a ripple effect which might endanger the student’s class performance. Another possible downside is that some early applications are binding, which could mean the student ends up receiving a better offer from a different school (in terms of financial aid) but can’t accept it. Early applications do tend to have higher acceptance rates, and can be very helpful, but it can also be in the student’s best interest to wait and take his/her time when applying.
