Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Liberty District Curriculum
Elementary grades are an introduction to new skills and ideas, helping K-6 students gain experience and master concepts, to then build on as they develop. Junior high grades are centered on the educational needs of adolescents as they transition between elementary school and high school. High school years are an opportunity for students to select courses and electives specific to potential college and career interests, developing necessary employability skills for the workforce.
In the subjects of Literacy and Mathematics, the Iowa Core Standards provide structure for instruction intended to further the depth of knowledge within student learning. Instruction focuses on recall, skills and concepts, strategic thinking and extended thinking. Students engage in each of these areas in learning Mathematics and Literacy, to then carry over in other subjects of Science, Social Studies and, in high school, Technical Education.

North Liberty District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in the North Liberty area attend Iowa City Community School District. Teaching and learning follow Iowa Core Curriculum – a student-based approach used for implementing high academic expectations aligned with Common Core State Standards. Standards are performance based, specific to each grade level. The Common Core framework deals with fewer Mathematics and Language Arts topics that students will dig deeper into, rather than briefly touching on every topic imaginable.
We currently cover the following North Liberty-area school district: Iowa City Community School District.

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: Special Programs
Many schools offer programs during the school year as well as during the summer. Programs offered before or after school give students additional learning opportunities in a safe and fun environment they’re familiar with. Those offered during the summer give your child time to be with their classmates again without the structure of the classroom, opening their eyes to how enjoyable school can be. Summer programs also provide a transition back into the school setting for new students, children that have been away most of the summer or just getting re-acquainted to the idea of going back to school. Students can learn things they may only touch on during classroom learning or learn something brand new, expanding their interests. Look into programs your school may offer, or if you feel that you and members of your community can offer a new program or introduce a new activity to students, volunteer to do so!
