Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Pleasant District Curriculum
The Iowa Core literacy standards aim to cultivate students who are college- and career-ready in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. This means that they demonstrate independence in these areas, read and listen purposefully and intently to build strong content knowledge, have the ability to respond to various audiences and purposes, both comprehend and critique, effectively and strategically utilize digital media, and gain understanding of multiple cultures and perspectives.
The standards describe reading in terms of the text complexity at which they read and their growth of comprehension; writing as the type of texts students write, their response to reading, and research; speaking and listening in terms of flexibility in communicating and collaborating; and language as conventions, vocabulary, and effective use. The English language arts standards also focus on how literacy is incorporated in content areas such as history and social studies, science, and the technical subjects.

Mount Pleasant District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Mount Pleasant Community School District is home to six schools and 2,050 students. Mount Pleasant Community School District uses the Iowa Core academic standards for literacy, math, social studies, and science. The standards focus on the major topics of the subject and develop students abilities in each throughout the years of schooling. Topics such as algebraic patterning and relationships, shapes and measurement, and quantitative data analysis are revisited each year so that as increasingly complex skills are introduced students have a background upon which to understand them.
We currently cover the following Mount Pleasant-area school district: Mount Pleasant Community Schools.

- MPCMS Students Get SMART - Mount Pleasant Community Middle School has designated a half-hour block of time to SMART (Supporting MPCMS in Academics and Reading Times), which is devoted to reading and students who need additional academic assistance. Students who need more assistance report to a support teacher during this time until they achieve success in the area needed. The other students participate in a building-wide reading initiative to determine which grade level reads the most total minutes.
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: Counting Through Stories
Children’s books can be a great tool to help youngsters learn to count. “The Baker’s Dozen” allows them to count to 13 using different types of desserts, as they learn that a baker’s dozen is equal to thirteen. The book, which includes a great deal of rhyming as well, also offers a review of the numbers from one to thirteen—including pictures. For sports fans, “Hat Trick’s Count: A Hockey Number Book” takes children through numbers one through nine and ten to 100 counting by tens with a hockey twist. The book also has rhyming and includes life-like illustrations. Lastly, in “Magnus Maximus, a Marvelous Measurer”, Magnus Maximus counts and measures extraordinary things. He became the town’s official measurer. He counted and measured everything and eventually forgot about everything else in life. One day, he lost his glasses and had to wait a day to get a new pair, so he could not count anything. He went to the beach, and little boy named Michael wanted to paddle with him in the water. Eventually, he learned that counting and measuring should not dominate his life.
