Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winnetka District Curriculum
The school’s curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are internationally refereed and researched in order to provide quality equal educational opportunities for all students. In humanities classes, the focus is on reading nonfiction works with fewer novels or poems. Students write analytical essays, gathering information, analyzing it, and presenting it as support for their theses.
In science classes, the focus is on real-world applications of the scientific process whenever possible. The core of this curriculum is a focus on foundational ideas which are thoroughly explored in classes so that students can build upon them. Critical thinking is demonstrated and taught in the hopes that students will develop these skills themselves and become life-long learners. Scientific literacy is also a sought for goal so that all students are equipped to understand natural and technological phenomenon.

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: Beyond the FAFSA: What Next?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the primary source of financial aid for students, but the process doesn’t have to stop there. The college’s financial aid department is the best resource for further information. They might know of additional scholarships or might have leeway to reconsider a financial aid package when extenuating circumstances come into play. They can also let applicants know about any scholarships available for high-achieving students, called merit scholarships, or students who fit into a certain demographic or have some quality in their background that is specific to a scholarship. Students are often automatically considered for these scholarships. But there are other moneys available. Many businesses and organizations offer scholarships for employees’ families or students who fulfill certain criteria. Many times, these scholarships require a fairly simple application and maybe an essay. Many political leaders offer small scholarships as well, which require brief applications.
