Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Iowa City District Curriculum
Math education starts elementary students with learning the basics of numbers, counting and algebraic thinking. By high school, students move onto specialized instruction in statistics and probability, algebra, functions, modeling and geometry.
Early grade level science instruction in Iowa City schools involves familiarizing young scholars with science as inquiry. They're taught to plan and carry out simple experiments and also use math for scientific inquiry. Middle and high school students build on these foundational principles to prepare them for more advanced topics.
Language Arts curricula for Iowa City Schools start with several foundations in grades K-5. Close reading for details, writing to build and present knowledge, and group collaboration are introduced to elementary school children. Students learn to become critical readers, writers of cogent arguments, and collaborative listeners and speakers.

Iowa City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Iowa City Community Schools are child-centered and future-focused. As the State of Iowa governs the curriculum for these schools, Iowa Core Standards apply. Each grade level’s instruction gradually builds on the one before it, so that students can retain crucial concepts.

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: Choosing a College
Choosing a college can be both exciting and stressful. There are many factors to consider: price, reputation, location, and degree programs offered. Here are a few things to consider when choosing, or helping someone else choose a college or university: Examine your own values and beliefs. Make sure you pick a school that aligns with those values. Assess your strengths, weaknesses and reasons for going to college. Make sure that you like the college's culture. Know that a prestigious college might not be a better fit for you than a lesser-known one. Finally, do your research. This means spending at least a few hours on campus and doing internet research about degree programs, activities and services they offer.
