Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenarden District Curriculum
The curriculum for Math starts with students at the pre-kindergarten and early grades learning basic math including learning their numbers, counting, and moving on to fundamental arithmetic such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, the use of whole numbers, fractions and decimals. In middle school, students move past fundamentals to tackle geometry, algebra, statistics and probability. High school students learn higher math skills including mathematic modeling and applying the math they know to real world situations. In addition, all high school students must pass classes in both Algebra and Geometry in order to meet graduation requirements.

Glenarden District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Glenarden schools, like the rest of Maryland’s schools, is moving to the Common Core Curriculum, which is now the state curriculum for Maryland. The Common Core Curriculum ensures that students across Maryland receive the same quality educational opportunities. The curriculum is evidence based and rigorous in its academic coursework to prepare students for both the workforce and advanced education.
The curriculum in Language Arts and Reading for all grades is based on a progressive learning program with students learning basic skills in the early grades and then adding to those skills as they progress through school. In the early grades students learn the basics of reading and writing through the use of phonics and other curriculum material. In later grades, the literature becomes more challenging including both contemporary literature and the classics and students must demonstrate reading comprehension both in written form and orally. The writing curriculum includes learning how to write well documented and researched opinion pieces and research reports.
We currently cover the following Glenarden-area school district: Prince George’s County Public Schools.

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 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.
