Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Council Bluffs District Curriculum
In the schools, Mathematics instruction aims to teach students that many mathematical relationships can exist within a given situation, to think about these situations creatively and to solve effectively and strategically. Elementary school students learn about numbers, counting and algebraic thinking. Middle school scholars are introduced to ratios and proportional relationships and statistics and probability. High school students learn statistics and probability, among other subjects.
The Language Arts curricula have several overarching principles regarding reading, writing, listening and speaking. Teachers use learning progressions to introduce successively more sophisticated ways of thinking as students learn and investigate the topic over a period of time. Students read fiction and non-fiction, develop ways to decode meaning and intention, and to express themselves in written work.

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: How to Choose After School Activities
Extracurricular activities can give children a much-needed break from their studies while still building skills. Sports can develop physical fitness and a love for the outdoors. Chess or math club can exercise the mind while helping form friendships among like-minded students. An art or dance class might help naturally creative children express themselves and develop their talents. But with so many options, how can a parent or child make a decision? It all depends on the student’s preferences and abilities. Here are some helpful tips to get started: Don’t try to do everything at once. It may seem obvious, but starting more than one or two activities at the same time can burn enthusiasm and energy quickly. Assess personal likes, dislikes, values, abilities and personality styles. Be honest. School is the place for requirements, but extracurricular activities should be enjoyable. Take convenience into account. And, consider joining with a friend. It may make the experience that much more enjoyable.
