Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cumberland District Curriculum
In Math at the elementary school level, students learn basic Math functions, counting, simple algebra, the basics of geometry, elementary statistics and learn to solve age appropriate word problems. In middle school, students learn about functions, patterns, basic algebraic expressions, solving equations, identifying geometric relationships and being able to use proportional reasoning to solve problems. Most importantly students at this level should be able to apply what they are learning in their Math courses to problems in real life.
High school students are required to take and pass both algebra and geometry. In algebra, students must be able to demonstrate that they understand and can use mathematical modeling, solve equations, linear and exponential relationships, and statistics. In geometry, students learn basic trigonometry, the concept of probability and circles, how to use the theories of congruence and constructions, and see the relationship of algebra to geometry.

Cumberland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Allegany County Public Schools system uses an elementary school curriculum that follows Maryland’s Voluntary State Curriculum. The curriculum for all class work is geared to helping students achieve their potential. At the kindergarten and elementary level students learn phonics, and basic reading skills. This includes being able to read grade level text with fluency, learn 8-12 new words per week, understand basic grammar and develop reading comprehension skills. Reading comprehension includes being able to summarize the reading material, and apply previous knowledge and skills to questions about the reading.

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.

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: Inventive Kids
Students with a yearning to invent can be inspired and informed at the Inventive Kids website sponsored by Circle Media. At the website students can read about other inventors through the years, get information on what kinds of thing other students have invented and even find out how to apply for a trademark, patent and copyright for an invention. The site is great for young inventors, parents and teachers. There are also games to play and lists of books and resources for brilliant young inventors.
