Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ankeny District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students will continue to build on what they have already learned in previous years as the materials they use become more complex. Instead of being viewed separately, teachers view and teach reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing as interrelated skills that support each other. LEAD 21 is the literacy curriculum used in kindergarten through fifth grade and the writing curriculum is Being a Writer. Acceleration and intervention are also integral parts of instructional strategies to assure student success.
In Math, teachers are trained in the Everyday Mathematics curriculum which focuses on practical application and understanding of math concepts. As part of their acceleration plan, students have the option to test out of a course. Students in need of intervention receive differentiated instruction as well as intervention labs to assist them in performing at grade level. In high school, students are expected to pass through the series of Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.

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: How to Create a Successful Study Place
The most important thing about creating a study place is to know how you study best. Do you study better when there is classical music playing in the background or when it is completely silent? Does the repetition of flash cards help you memorize facts or is it easier for you to type things out over and over again? The most successful study place not only helps you focus, but will also provide the necessary tools. A small desk with plenty of pencils, paper, flash cards, highlighters and post-its are all great tools to have handy. Some students may do better with a small cubicle in a library while others may prefer to have all their things spread out on their bed. Knowing how you study best will help you figure out where to study and what you will need.
