Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cedar Falls District Curriculum
In Math, students continue to build upon their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills in relation to whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. They will study geometric angles, lines, and shapes. Students learn how to use measurement in metric and standard units. Area and perimeter are important concepts that they students will explore. They also learn about ratio, proportion, and percentages.
In Science, students learn about planet Earth and the solar system. They learn about the body systems and how they all work together as well as issues about personal health and wellness. They learn about the states of matter and how they can change. They study sound, light, electricity, magnetism, and heat. They use scientific investigations, gather and analyze data, and develop conclusions based on evidence they find. Students are also expected to learn how to communicate what they have learned and to develop a broad scientific and technological literacy.

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: What is an Individualized Education Program (IEP)?
The written document that makes up the IEP, Individualized Education Program, is created for public school students who qualify for special education. A group of specific individuals determine if your child has a disability and what your child needs to be successful in the general education classroom. They will then develop the IEP and update it at least once a year. This group of individuals consists of the general education teacher, a special education teacher, a specialist (i.e., speech therapist, occupational therapist), often times an administrator, and you, the parent. When appropriate, the child will attend some of the IEP meetings. Everyone is working together and will set specific goals to meet your child’s educational needs. Though the forms may vary from school to school, certain information is required by a federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA).
