Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ottumwa District Curriculum
As with other Iowa cities, the Ottumwa School District's curriculum follows the standards set forth in the Iowa Core Curriculum Standards. The Language Arts curriculum centers on moving students through basic reading comprehension, to building vocabulary and understanding the basics of composition and mechanics of grammar, to combining reading comprehension with creative composition to allow students to develop a wide variety of communication skills.
In Mathematics, students progress from a basic understanding of defining and working with numbers in the early years of elementary school to understanding operations and basic algebra in middle school to advanced operations and functions in algebra and geometry in the final years of high school creating a well-developed set of logic skills with real-world applications of mathematical principles

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.

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: How Graphic Organizers Work
Studies have indicated that the use of graphic organizers is a useful and effective tool that connects students’ prior learning to new and increasingly complex ideas and concepts. In the case of reading comprehension, graphic organizers help increase understanding by allowing students to piece together parts of the story, thereby solidifying their comprehension through the use of multisensory inputs, creating a more effective learning environment. Graphically organizing information also helps students track their progress in a way that is visually informative, logical, and rewarding.
