Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hyattsville District Curriculum
In Mathematics, elementary students start with learning their numbers and how to count and move on to basic mathematical operations including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and basic algebra and geometry. Elementary students also learn the rudiments of measurement and solving word problems. Middle school students move into higher mathematical abilities learning how to use rational numbers, fractions, equations, ratios, statistics and probability. High school students must complete both Algebra and Geometry courses for graduation. The Algebra I course prepares students to learn the fundamentals of linear and exponential relationships, statistics, modeling, quadratic functions, and complex equations. The Geometry course helps students understand the basic concepts of congruence, similarity, dimensions, and probability.

Hyattsville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in the Prince George’s County Public School District are moving to the Maryland Common Core Curriculum Framework as the basis for their school curriculum. This new curriculum is an evidence based standard with coursework that prepares students for both the workforce and further education. The curriculum is based on a progressive learning experience that starts in the pre Kindergarten years and is cumulatively built on.
Students in Language Arts and Reading at the elementary school level focus on developing reading skills through the use of grade appropriate phonics and word analysis skills. Students learn to pick out the main ideas in reading material and be able to talk about this in class. Elementary students should be able to write basic documents and use resources correctly to substantiate statements in a document. In middle school, students learn to identify the main structure and organization of reading materials, including the key concept and theme. Students writing abilities also grow in complexity as they learn how to write different types of writing from creative stories to research reports. In addition, students learn to write structured arguments that are supported by research conducted by the students. High school students are expected to deal with more complicated text, to read and analyze documents and interpret the readings.
We currently cover the following Hyattsville-area school districts: Prince George’s County Public Schools.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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.
