Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Estherville District Curriculum
The high school Math curriculum introduces a higher level of rigor into the expectations but uses what students have learned during elementary and middle school as the basis for these advanced operations and functions. High school math is organized around Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Students work with equations and inequalities and are taught how to reason using either function in their problem-solving method. They are also expected to demonstrate how they arrived at an answer.
Students also learn how to build and interpret geometric and trigonometric functions. They are taught how to create and use linear, quadratic, and exponential models to help solve problems that require extrapolation. Students also build mathematical models to forecast or predict needs or outcomes. For instance, students may be asked to figure out how much water is needed for 1 million people during an emergency situation and how it would be distributed. By focusing on problems like these, educators are able to provide a real world context for the math.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Charlie and Lola
Lauren Child’s series that centers on brother and sister Charlie and Lola includes charming photographic backgrounds with drawn, child-like characters in front of the backgrounds. In I Want to be Much More Bigger Like You, Lola would like to be taller so that she can ride the “Super Dooper Loop the Looper,” so she tries to“think” being taller to see if she will grow. Charlie tells her that she cannot do this but that there are plenty of rides for smaller people. In the end, Lola has fun riding the Chug-a-Bugs, as she realizes that it's not always so bad to be little. Throughout the series of books, the siblings concoct many imaginary scenarios, have fun describing new things, and make the world seem more manageable.
