Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winthrop Harbor District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards provides objectives that state the skills and knowledge that students should learn each year. Language arts is taught so that students can use their literacy skills in all subjects. Math and Science have been organized so students are able to use manipulatives, investigate scientific phenomenon, and conduct experiential learning so that they have the frame of reference to analyze the related concepts. This is the basis by which students will later understand Algebra or Geometry.
Students are given clear expectations not only for how they should behave but for academic choices. They are given learning opportunities to succeed and build self-confidence. Students are expected to make healthy, positive life choices for their own benefit, which demonstrate respect for themselves and others. They learn how to collaborate with their peers and are taught to respect diversity and to be able to operate in group settings while remaining respectful to the opinions of others and being active listeners.

Winthrop Harbor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The district uses the Illinois Learning Standards as the basis for its curriculum. Students have many choices for the academic path they want to take and will be able to use their core academic foundation to bridge the learning experience. Students also have many extracurricular activities as well including community service opportunities because the school believes that service to others teaches students valuable perspectives and will lead to students being engaged, active citizens and members of their own community. Active, engaged learners are also more likely to have success.

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: College Applications
There are several types of college applications, but the biggest difference between them all is their deadlines. Early Decision is usually the earliest, due November 1. Early Action is usually due November 15. Regular Decision might be due December 1 or as late as February. Early Decision II is usually due in January or February. Rolling is an odd one; they don’t have a set due-date, exactly, more of a range. They open at a certain point, usually pretty early in the season, maybe even in late summer, and they end pretty late, maybe as late as March. All during that time, submissions are read as soon as they’re received, whereas with other application types, submissions aren’t necessarily read until the deadline passes.
