Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waterloo District Curriculum
Mathematics instruction in Waterloo Community Schools, as prescribed by Iowa Core Standards, teaches students to use reasoning and problem solving to their advantage. Across grade levels and schools, students learn to get creative about finding different ways of solving problems, reasoning abstractly, and making use of patterns.
Each level of Science instruction in Waterloo Community Schools teaches science as inquiry, urging students to form observations, questions and conclusions about the environment, biology and natural laws. By high school, students become familiar with designing and conducting scientific experiments and using math in their science studies.
Students can expect to become college and career ready through the Language Arts, History and Social Studies curriculum provided by the schools. Each grade level's instruction emphasizes creating well-formed written and spoken communication.

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 to Choose a Tutor
Selecting a tutor can be a big step in the right direction. Individual tutoring can sometimes give students the extra help they need to pull ahead or salvage falling grades. Parents can help their children pick a great tutor using the following general guidelines: Talk to your child about why you think tutoring is a good idea, and what you hope they can accomplish with the tutor's help. Make sure your child and the tutor are a good fit. Ensure that the tutor has some experience working with clients that are the same age as your child. Set tutoring goals and request a plan of action for learning. Schedule sessions during your child's optimal learning hours and monitor your child's progress to ensure that the established academic milestones are being met.
