Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Iowa Falls District Curriculum
The study of literature is included in the English curriculum at Iowa Falls and Alden Community School District. While in high schools the students learn how to read to support facts from the text, plus they discover how to cite inferences from the reading. They also learn how to find a theme or central idea in order to find the details to support it. Included in this is how this idea shows itself and how it comes to an objective summary. Through their reading, students look at characters which have many different motivations, how they interact with others and how they move the plot forward.
The Mathematics curriculum at Iowa Falls and Alden Community School District include the study of geometry, number and quantity, algebra, functions, modeling and statistics. In high school the students begin to learn about imaginary numbers in order to create complex numbers. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are also different as each new topic of mathematics is introduced and expanded upon as students use exponents. The students also use calculators, spreadsheets and computers to help them comprehend what they are learning.

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: Resume Tips
The “Honors and Memberships” section of the resume provides a chance for a candidate to boast about the honors he/she earned for academic performance in college. Here, the candidate may note if he/she earned a spot on the Dean’s List (and the years this was accomplished) and if he/she received, for example, Cum Laude honors upon graduating. He/she may also list his/her class ranking in the school of study. One shouldn't be afraid to list all of his/her achievements in this section for fear of bragging; although they won't earn someone a job, they can be the difference when two candidates are neck-and-neck. This portion of the resume should also be dedicated to the candidate’s memberships in college organizations to show they are well-rounded.
