Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cottage Grove District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Cottage Grove School allow for many hands-on projects. In kindergarten the students may watch tadpoles grow or they may plant and watch sunflower seed change from a seed to a plant. Later these students learn how to turn salt water into fresh water while they study the water cycle. Designing a craft that floats helps them understand how things sink or float and magnetism is reinforced by having the students fish for paperclips with magnets. Through these hands-on activities, along with many others students learn that exploration of the world can be done by students like them.
Educators at Cottage Grove schools help Social Studies come to life for the students. Instead of learning dates and names, these students take field trips to learn about community helpers. They also explore the reasons for Imperialism and write speeches on Civil Rights. These students, after graduation, will have learned how to become citizens that will take action and make effective decisions, as needed.

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 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: Fourth Grade Science
Curricula for fourth grade science may vary from state to state but in general the expectations are the same. This is a busy year for students as they begin to learn about processes and concepts. The processes they learn in fourth grade are observing and measuring items, organisms or events, classification using two or more observable properties. They also learn to arrange items of a series in order. Other processes they learn include planning and conduction science experiments, creating a hypothesis, reading and understanding graphs, charts and tables and communication of outcomes of an experiment. The concepts children learn include motion, electricity, adaptations of organisms, roles or organisms in living systems, learned traits versus inherited traits, erosion, weathering and sedimentation and fossils. By now, these students have made a big step into the world of scientists.
