Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Coralville District Curriculum
One core area, Language Arts, includes a curriculum of reading, listening, speaking, writing, spelling, handwriting, and vocabulary. Students are taught to make connections between what they read, write, speak, listen, and view. Language Arts instruction may also be integrated within the discipline or with other disciplines.
Another core, Mathematics, includes number sense and computation of whole numbers, fractions, decimals as well as geometry and measurement in the elementary grades. Information about the textbook used by K-6 students and additional resources to support mathematics learning can be found at the Everyday Math website. The junior and high school Mathematics program includes ratio, proportion and percent as well as algebra, measurement, statistics and probability for students to gain mathematical understanding and language for everyday application.

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.

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: Using Art as a Learning Tool
So much of school and subjects involves reading and writing. Some instruction may include having students “draw out” their ideas or work, such as for a math problem of writing a story. However, your child’s creativity can be used at home to extend learning in the classroom. Coloring, painting, stencils – all are easy and affordable ways to have your child demonstrate what they just read, how they interpret a chapter read to them or took notes on during class. By trying a different approach to learning, or reviewing, your child may begin or continue to like learning or begin to like doing the work they bring home. An upcoming quiz or test can include asking you child to draw what they visualize from a given word, sentence or paragraph. You don’t need to be a teacher to see if your child is able to interpret and demonstrate their understanding. Using art as a learning tool doesn’t have to take any more time from your child or family than normal homework or test review.
