Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Anamosa District Curriculum
Anamosa Community School District’s curriculum is reviewed on a five-year cycle that includes four phases: assess, plan, implement & monitor, and evaluate. The goal of the curriculum review process is to ensure that the written curriculum aligns with classroom instruction and assessment and, hence, improve students’ achievement for each district learning goal. The district posts standards and grade-level expectations for each content area. The district also looks for local connections that students can make with what they are learning.
For example, under the math standard for number systems 'Students will understand and apply the concept of numbers,' a specific expectation for fourth graders is to demonstrate an understanding of the fractions whole, half, third, and fourth. In seventh grade, students are to understand that numbers are not rational are called irrational and learn how to estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π4). In tenth grade, standards for the number and quantity strand help students understand matrices, vectors, and complex number algebra.

Anamosa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Anamosa Community School District uses the Iowa Core Curriculum as the basis for teaching and learning in all of their schools. The Iowa Core provides detailed learning standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. The standards provide a logical progression to learning that increases complexity in the same subject-area strands, such as writing in the Literacy framework, and allows students to think critically about what they have learned. The 21st century skills involve other necessary areas of literacy such as health literacy, financial literacy and civic literacy.
We currently cover the following Anamosa-area school district: Anamosa Community School District.

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: Books for Early Readers
The following books are great to use for very young children who are beginning readers. Cookie See! Cookie Do! is great for practicing body movements with very young students. In Where’s Spot?—written and illustrated by Eric Hill—Sally could not find her pup Spot until she eventually found him in a basket. The book allows readers to actually “open” doors, lids, etc. to search for Spot themselves. It includes repetitiveness, which is beneficial for beginning readers. Another great option is Are You My Mother? which is a great introduction to the joy of storytelling in books. It is a little longer than many beginner books, but it works through word repetitions and builds the story to a happy ending.
