Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cottage Grove District Curriculum
Proficiency in the state standards can be quite rigorous in math for students in the Cottage Grove schools. By Kindergarten, students are already introduced to recognizing, create, completing, and extending patterns of numbers, a skill crucial for algebra. The main focus is geometry and measurement, data and analysis, and algebraic operations during the middle school years so that students are prepared for full year courses in these subjects.
The tracking of proficiency also means that the goals for ELA state standards are followed closely. The recent publication from the state of Minnesota about the Common Core explains the large overlap of concern between the two educational plans. In either plan, ELA students in the K-5 are expected to have reading skills that understand key ideas and details; craft and structure; integration of knowledge and ideas; and range of level and level of text complexity. Grades 6-12 proceed from these foundations, engaging with complex works of prose.

Cottage Grove District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Igniting a lifelong love of learning means Cottage Grove schools follow the strategic plan that is outlined by the South Washington County School District. Data driven data is used to track the progress of Cottage Grove students in Reading, Writing, Math, and Science. Information is used to understand the strengths and weaknesses of individual students and whole classes so that teachers can maximize their instructional resources. Beyond this focus on academics, however, the district also emphasizes electives in creative and high interest areas for students to experience.
We currently cover the following Cottage Grove-area school district: South Washington County School District.

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: The Role of Student Tracking
Tracking, the separation of students into similar classes, subjects, or curriculum is important for its addressing of the issue of skills deficits of a student. Tracking makes sure that students are in classes with other students whose academic achievement matches their own. The designations of above average, average, and below average tell more than how a student is meeting the instructional standards. Tracking allows school faculty to intervene in the academic career of a student by identifying deficits, and remedying the difficulties. Solutions to the low progress of a student can be addressed by the assigning of specific classes, subjects, or curriculum. Some potential remedies involve the differentiation of instruction and modifications and accommodations to support deficits and create authentic academic skills. Tracking also helps above average students, by placing them in classes or subjects that keep pace with their accelerated learning or skills.
