Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cambridge District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the students study increasingly complex reading selections including nonfiction, and adding more text analysis to the program. At all grade levels, the new standards are geared toward the improvement of writing skills including narration, exposition, and argument forms. Elementary students receive daily instruction in writing styles and grammar. Students also start a writing portfolio that will go with them through elementary school. Middle school students use a curriculum for Language Arts that includes a gradual transition to Common Core. Opportunities for analytic thought are added to the reading and in writing students are tasked with more attention to persuasive, expository and narrative writing styles. At the high school level, the curriculum includes the reading of complex text with students proving spoken and written analyses of the material.

Cambridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In 2010, the Maryland State Board of Education decided to adopt the Common Core State Standards for both Mathematics and English & Language Arts. These rigorous evidence based standards help ensure that students are receiving the same quality education across state lines and from school to school. These standards have now been adopted by more than 40 states. In addition to the Common Core Standards the District is implementing the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Initiative (STEM). STEM ensures that students are be prepared for the growing number of jobs that are required in the fields of engineering and technology.
We currently cover the following Cambridge-area school district: Dorcester County Public Schools.

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.
