Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charles City District Curriculum
The elementary schools have recently implemented a new math curriculum that better aligns with the Iowa Core Standards. The new math curriculum will allow students to acquire better mathematical understanding and thinking, develop their problem solving skills, and be more active participants in their learning. The curriculum will be implemented consistently from grade to grade in K-5 and helps make the transition from elementary to middle school math a much smoother one.
The reading strand of the literacy standards focuses on teaching students how to find the key idea and details in a text, understand the craft and structure used by the author, be able to integrate knowledge and ideas, and the ability to increase the complexity level of one's reading incrementally. The writing standards focus on the purpose and type of texts students might write, the process of writing an essay or story, research and presentation of a piece of work, and the range of writing a student can produce.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Life Events
Picture books are a great way to teach students about major life events in a way they can understand. In “The Baby Shower”, written by Eve Bunting, the animals were off to celebrate Ms. Brindle Cow’s baby shower. They were surprised to find, upon arriving, that she already had babies Mike and May. This book primarily shows the joys of having a baby. In “Hannah’s Baby Sister”, Hannah is eagerly awaiting the birth of her baby sister, making all kinds of plans for her. However, she is angry when she finds out that her mother has a boy. When she holds the baby for the first time, however, she loves him right away. In “Lilly’s Big Day”, Lilly desperately wanted to be the flower girl in her teacher Mr. Slinger’s wedding, but he announced that his niece Ginger was going to be his flower girl. To keep Lilly from being too upset, he told her that she could be Ginger’s assistant. Ginger was too nervous to walk down the aisle, so Lilly carried her down the aisle.
