Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Worth District Curriculum
Students must be prepared for global changes and advances in order to remain competitive. To this end, they must also be respectful of and not intimidated by diversity. Students who accept personal responsibility for their own learning will pursue a sense of fulfillment. The schools pride themselves on teaching students to be adaptive and engaged learners and global thinkers.
The curriculum emphasizes critical thinking skills, analytical writing, and real-world applications of lessons. In literature classes, students analyze nonfiction texts to find evidence to support their theses, they assemble this evidence in clear, logical ways, and they write analytical essays which clearly demonstrate these ideas and support their thesis. Science cases explore the physical world and engineering concepts and focus on familiar, realistic situations when possible.

Worth District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts follow the Illinois Common Core Curriculum, which is an internationally benchmarked curriculum intended to provide rigorous, equal educational standards to all students regardless of where they are from, what they look like, how much money they have, or how they learn. It is the belief of the districts that all students should be provided opportunities to succeed, and it is hoped that this will encourage a lifelong appreciation for learning.

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: Recommendation Do’s and Don’ts
Recommendations are an essential part of a college application, but it can be tricky to know who to ask. Colleges want recommendations from classroom teachers the student has had junior or senior year. Additional recommendations from non-classroom teachers can be helpful if they have some additional insight into the student that will be useful. A boss at a summer job, for example, could be useful, whereas a letter from your uncle who went to that college twenty years ago and hasn’t been on campus since, isn’t going to be useful. It’s important to consider you relationship with the teacher. If you did really well in that class, great. But your transcript does already show that. What if you really struggled in a class, but you worked hard—and the teacher can attest to that. Say, you asked questions, came for extra help from the teacher, and worked really hard, but still only got a decent grade. A recommendation from that teacher can “damage control” a poor or mediocre grade, if the teacher agrees that you did work hard but there were extenuating circumstances (like, maybe that you’re just not the best at math…).
