Educating Our Parents: Understanding the College Park District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the curriculum is focused on developing literacy, phonics, and an appreciation for reading. The basic textbooks for the early classes in literacy and reading are from Houghton Mifflin and follow the Common Core Standards for English. At the Middle School level, students have options based on their level of fluency. There are special courses in English for students with limited English proficiency. Coursework in the standard English/Language Arts classes involve learning to extend reading and writing proficiency, learning to listen and learning to communicate.
At the High School level there are remedial courses in English for speakers of other languages and basic required English courses which focus on developing advanced writing and language skills, improving vocabulary and the studying of literature from around the world. Specific requirements are that high school students are proficient in understanding and being able to identify complex themes in literature understand plot development, be able to analyze the integration of subject matter, and be able to write convincingly to support an argument using reliable evidence.

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: Science Resources for Students
The Smithsonian Air & Space Museum is a wonderful educational place to visit but if that is not possible students can have fun and learn about aviation and space programs at their website. There are activities, stories and behind the scene information. Some of the games and activities include dressing the well dressed pilot, trying your hand at being a mail pilot, exploring early commercial planes, and learning how to spot today's jets. This site might be just the inspiration for the next budding pilot.
