Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Montgomery District Curriculum
The high school English language arts curriculum includes a series of lessons that promote the acquisition of excellent writing skills. Students learn to write in a variety of styles for a number of different purposes. Organization of writings is explored, such that writers effectively establish an opinion and support their opinion with specific evidence. The development of claims and counterclaims is an area of emphasis as well, with students learning to take information from various sources and fully explore multiple perspectives of the same event. To link their ideas, students learn how to utilize parts of speech, namely phrases and clauses.
The technology curriculum for Montgomery students focuses on a number of areas. Students gain an appreciation for the development of technology over the last few decades, and engage in discussions of where technology will go in the decades to come. Learners explore human-technology interactions, identifying the ways in which technology improves our lives and causes problems as well. Students explore safety and ethical issues brought about by technology.

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: Benefits of Extracurricular Activities
Getting your child involved in extracurricular activities will provide them with a host of academic, social, and emotional benefits. Students who participate in sports, clubs, and organizations learn valuable lessons in teamwork and communication. Conducting themselves in a respectful manner is an additional lesson that many students garner from participation in activities. There are many academic benefits as well. Time-management skills improve, helping students to stay focused on the task at hand. Being able to prioritize tasks is another benefit of participation in activities. Particularly for clubs that are creativity-based, students experience an expanded capacity for innovation and creativity. From a social perspective, extracurricular activities give students a chance to make new friends and interact with other students in different grades and from different schools. Studies also show that participation in activities is a great way to boost self-esteem and improve students’ self-confidence.
