Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Madison District Curriculum
At the elementary school level, students are not only responsible for mastering traditional academic skills but must also show proficiency in life skills as well. Kindergarten students, for example, are expected to understand family responsibilities as well as learning about hygiene and dental health. The third grade social studies curriculum focuses on what it means to be part of a community. The concepts further develop into a more global approach to each issue or topic.
Fifth graders in Fort Madison schools are tasked with satisfying traditional math requirements like beginning geometric principles and the definition of ecosystems in science. However, fifth grade students also learn about the civil rights movement and the way people from different parts of the world have influenced the United States. The science curriculum addresses basic concepts in biology, earth science, and chemistry and physics.

Fort Madison District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Fort Madison Community School District has set forth a curriculum that provides a student with skills needed for life beyond the classroom. Instructors focus on students as individuals and rely on adaptability in student learning and in their approach to instruction. This focus is apparent in the curriculum of both elementary schools, the middle school and the district’s high school. In addition to its five traditional schools, Fort Madison offers an alternative school called the Creative Learning Center. For students who perform better in a less traditional setting, students enrolled in the CLC are supported with district supplies, curriculum and teachers in an environment more conducive to their success.
We currently cover the following Fort Madison-area school district: Fort Madison Community School District.

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: Tips for Conducting Research
The internet is a great tool to get answers to all of your questions, but navigating through all of the answers available can be difficult. That’s why it’s important to learn how to use the information you encounter online. First of all, don’t be content with just one answer. The first web site that pops up when you enter your search terms may seem like it is exactly what you need but remember that it is just one version. Try multiple search terms and experiment with different ways of wording what you're looking for to do the most comprehensive research possible. Also, be critical when it comes to the nature of a site. Look for sites that are academic in nature or are associated with a recognized institution or company rather than an individual or user generated web site. Also be sure that the site has been updated recently and that the information is current.
