Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waverly District Curriculum
Waverly-Shell Rock students use iPads in every class to complete a wide variety of assignments. For example, elementary school students learn to make iMovies and write ebooks, middle school students collaborate on interactive presentations and high school students use the iPad to Skype with experts in their field of study to enhance their educational experience. Teachers and instructors in the Waverly-Shell Rock Community schools also make the most of the available technology. Teachers are able to grade more effectively and communicate with parents and students. For example, if a student is absent, the student can find out what s/he missed so that they don’t fall behind.
Art students throughout the district are the beneficiaries of iPad use that allow them to complete art projects, store photos in online accounts and create a digital portfolio. Physical education students can complete a circuit training course by scanning QR codes that explain the next physical activity.

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: Tips for Developing Strong Literacy Habits
It’s common knowledge that children who read at home are more likely to develop strong reading habits and respond better to reading tasks in the classroom. But it’s equally important for parents to model a balance of fiction and non-fiction reading with their children. In fact, parents who can reflect a passion and respect for the information found in non-fiction reading, such as newspaper articles, magazines, and encyclopedias will have a much stronger influence on their child’s literacy skills than parents who focus on fiction reading alone. Good readers rely on a balance of reading materials and read to entertain themselves as well as learn new information. Start by finding out what topics already interest your child: astronomy, electronics, animals, or sports. Then, look for websites, books, and magazine or newspaper articles that provide more information on that topic in a child-friendly manner.
