Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Airy District Curriculum
As one of the first states in the US to embrace the Common Core State Standards, Maryland had excelled, currently being ranked as the highest achieving state in the nation. The Common Core State Standards, or the CCSS, emphasize preparing students for college and career. Maryland educators have developed Essential Skills of Knowledge to serve as a framework to guide curriculum development.
Students work in many areas to become college and career ready. From kindergarten trough 12th grade, students are taught skills that are directly translatable to real life. Students not only understand skills and concepts, but they also comprehend how that knowledge can help them today and in the future. Transitioning curriculum to adhere to the CCSS has allowed Mount Airy schools to be some of the top in Maryland.

Mount Airy District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in Mount Airy are served by two separate school systems. As the town is on the border of four counties, students are served by both the Carroll County Public School District and the Frederick County Public School District. Each of these districts performs above state average. They both have an extremely low dropout rate, and a very high graduation rate, with programming that prepares students for both college and career goals in the current, technologically-driven world.

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: How to Reinforce Basic Number and Letter Skills
Have you ever been in line at the DMV (or some other horribly nasty place)? With your child(ren)? For a long time? You may notice that they begin to get bored, act out, or even stop listening. There is a solution to not only fight the boredom, but to reinforce some basic skills at the same time. Kids love to explore their surroundings. By asking them to locate certain items around the area you are in, children will have fun while keeping busy. 1) How many letter “x” can you find? Using letters in a child’s name works well. 2) How many number “x” can you find? Again, relate the number to the child, such as his or her age. 3) Are there more red picture or green pictures on this wall? 4) How many “shapes” are in this room? Try using a child’s favorite color. 5) How many posters do you see on these two walls? There are any number of variations to this seek and find game. It can last as long or as short as you need it to, and it might just keep you sane long enough to get that license renewed.
