Educating Our Parents: Understanding the College Park District Curriculum
The standards, implemented in many school districts across the nation, have been developed by education experts, teachers and parents. They are research-based, giving teachers and leader direction in how students learn. For example, students study style, tone, and context of American Literature in eleventh grade. When they write, they learn to produce smooth, flowing sentences that show a connection from one paragraph to the next one. Strategies and instructional tools make teaching and learning rigorous and relevant, applicable through problem-based teaching.
Students are provided with the skills, content and knowledge to be college and career ready, using informational technical texts and increasing text complexity in core subjects to do so. The curriculum allows students to extend critical thinking and problem solving abilities to real-world activities, increasing their interest and awareness of the world around them.

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: On the Computer
When the summer arrives and school is out, children and teens will be home more. Days will get warmer, giving everyone the excuse not to go outside. Being outside and active would be the best choice, but when the temperature is high, inside activities are certainly the best choice. If going to a pool isn’t an option, finding something to entertain your child while indoors may be a challenge. Computers, iPads or video games could be the first thing your child turns to when they wake up, after they eat, before they go to bed. Being on a tablet, the computer and playing video games can be considered a learning experience, provided your child is learning something (strategy, trivia, literacy) while on it. It may not be easy to monitor how your child used technology in the home and what they’re using it for. In order to make the summer an enjoyable one for you and your children when it comes to computer use, make a pact, even a contract, as soon as school gets out.
