Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clive District Curriculum
Elementary grades are an introduction to new skills and ideas, helping K-6 students gain experience and master concepts, to then build on as they develop. Junior high grades are centered on the educational needs of adolescents as they transition between elementary school and high school. High school years are an opportunity for students to select courses and electives specific to potential college and career interests, developing necessary skills for entering the workforce.
Instruction involves research – based strategies toward essential concepts and skills specific to each grade. Classrooms are students-centered, teachers focusing on the individual needs of each student. Assessments are geared to measure student achievement based on standards expected to master for the grade, allowing teachers and parents to determine the progress of students and areas in need of improvement.

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.

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: School Supplies
The summer months are a time for children, teens and parents to take a break from the idea of school and enjoy the activities liked by all. These months are also a great time to grab necessary supplies for the upcoming school year without the rush at the beginning of the school year. Schools begin to post, or may have already, a list of supplies students need at their grade level. There are a few ways to approach the task – a quick look online to then purchase, setting aside a day to buy the necessary items, or grabbing a few items each time during an errand. Children can also be included in the process, taking responsibility for what supplies they already have and putting aside for later, being responsible for remembering what needs to be purchased when out on an errand with parents, or if your child is a teen, buying certain supplies while they are out with friends as determined by you and your teen. The yearly task of getting “school supplies” doesn’t have to be a rush or really a task at all if done as part of everyday activities and as a family.
