Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Arbutus District Curriculum
The math curriculum in Arbutus is based on the Common Core Math Standards. As part of the curriculum, high school students study Algebra I. Students learn how to solve linear equations and use units to solve problems. Learners also examine functions, and learn how to define, evaluate, and compare them. Students also use graphs, numbers, and symbols to interpret functions. A study of descriptive statistics is also undertaken. Students learn how to display numerical data and summarize it using measures of central tendency and variability.
English language arts students in Arbutus take part in a curriculum that, like math, is based on the Common Core. A central focus of the curriculum is developing reading skills. Children in elementary school work with various types of texts, including those that are literary and informational. Students acquire critical reading skills that allow them to ask and answer questions about a text’s key details, themes, main ideas and literary devices the author used.

Arbutus District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Public schoolchildren in Arbutus are served by the Baltimore County Public Schools. The school district is one of the largest in the nation, with 173 schools, centers, and programs, and nearly 110,000 students. Despite it’s large size, the district maintains a small school feel at each of its buildings. Students enjoy classes with teachers that are dedicated to recognizing and fostering each student’s unique interests and aptitudes. Because the district is so large, children have ample opportunities for learning. Both in and out-of-class experiences increase interest in the subject matter.

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: Why Children Need Music Education
After many districts across the nation cut back on the number of hours children spend in music education courses a few years ago, districts are recognizing once again the value that music courses have. Children that study music reap many academic benefits. Research shows that young musicians have improved math skills, both on individual assessments and in the grades they earn over the course of their studies. Students who take music classes also score higher on the SAT, outscoring their peers by 57 points on the verbal portion of the test and by 41 points on the math portion of the test. Music education has social benefits as well. Students who enroll in music courses demonstrate greater self-confidence and higher self-esteem than their peers. Music students are also referred for disciplinary action far less often than their peers.
