Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waseca District Curriculum
Geometry and measurement are two essential topics students explore as part of Waseca’s elementary math curriculum. Students develop an understanding of parallel and perpendicular lines, and use them to create a variety of geometric shapes. Various polygons are worked with as well, including hexagons, pentagons, and octagons. Learners also acquire the ability to use half units when making measurements, such as measuring the length of a section of rope to the nearest half-inch. Additional measurement concepts, such as surface area and perimeter, are studied as well.
The high school English language arts curriculum in Waseca focuses student learning on writing for different purposes. Students learn how to effectively write arguments that support their analysis of texts. Learners devise an understanding of how to introduce a topic, present their opinion, and support their opinion with valid sources. Explanatory writings are also explored. Learners hone their ability to explain a topic in appropriate detail, with supporting ideas that provide greater clarity to the overall topic.

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.

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.
