Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bel Air District Curriculum
The HCPS, along with the state of Maryland, has adopted the Common Core State Standards. These standards focus on building students' skills to be ready for the workforce or further education. In mathematics, for instance, the curriculum, instruction, and assessment of learning has been aligned. Information is presented in a way that students can view math as a functional subject, versus information required to be memorized. Relating mathematical concepts to real life applications is one of the cornerstones of the curriculum.
By using the Common Core State Standards, HCPS is able to identify what skills children need from kindergarten through graduation. Because the Common Core State Standards did not include prekindergarten standards, educators from every part of Maryland collaborated to created pre-K levels to add to the existing standards. The HCPS adheres to both the standards created by Maryland for prekindergarten, as well as the objectives in Math and Language Arts laid out in the Common Core State Standards, created for kindergarten through graduation.

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 Encourage Your Child to Read
Some children are born readers. They enjoy reading on their own, and they can often be found with a book in their hands. Many children, however, seem to dislike reading. As a parent, you may hope to find a way to increase the amount of reading your non-reader is engaging in. Hopefully, by taking a look at the following three tips you will get a few helpful ideas. Find books on topics that interest your child. Use observation, your own knowledge, or simply ask your child what subjects he or she might enjoy reading about. Provide a varied selection of magazines. Do not presume what topics your child might or might not be interested in. By providing a variety of types of magazines, from gardening to do it yourself, you allow your child choices he or she may not even have considered. Read with your child. Oftentimes, if a child dislikes reading, a positive model of reading for fun can help encourage him or her to read more. Let your child choose a book and take turns reading aloud. Though your child may never “love” reading, he or she may come to appreciate its gifts. Use these tips above to help guide your child into a world of reading.
