Frederick District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The goal of FCPS is to provide a setting that is intellectually stimulating for students and that will promote an interest in lifelong learning. From pre-kindergarten age children through high school, the curriculum is based on developing basic skills which can then be built on as a student moves through the school program. During the early years, skill development in numbers, vocabulary, problem solving, and basic literacy is emphasized. In elementary school students are expected to master basic concepts in Language Arts, Reading, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Art & Music, and Physical Education and Health. Math concepts include fundamentals of Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra including an understanding of probability, statistics, computation, measurement and patterns.
In Middle School students are offered a varied program that is geared toward generating the natural curiosity of this age student. A special program of enrichment is offered to allow middle school students to engage in independent study on subjects that interest them. At this level the math program is focused on pre-algebra and algebraic skills. In addition, students are expected to delve into mathematical patterns and function, probability, measurements and statistics at a deeper level. In Language Arts, the curriculum for the middle school student includes improving critical thinking processes. The development of writing skills in conjunction with language usage and research skills are key to preparing a student for high school.

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.
