Mount Rainier District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Mount Rainier, Maryland schools are in the process of moving to the Common Common Core Curriculum Framework which is now the the state curriculum for Maryland. The new Common Core Curriculum is a rigorous academic curriculum which is based on evidence based research and standards focused on providing students with the background they need to pursue both advanced education and entrance into the workforce.
The Common Core Curriculum is based on a progressive learning experience by learning the fundamentals of coursework in the early years and then building on that knowledge through the rest of the school years. From Pre-Kindergarten through High School, students in Language Arts and Reading, start with learning the fundamentals of Reading and Phonics and move on to reading more challenging literature and the demonstration of Reading Comprehension. Students are taught to be able to apply the learning they have acquired as they take on more advanced Reading and Writing coursework. The focus of the curriculum is on developing the ability to write opinion pieces, creative writing abilities, and report writing. There is also an emphasis on being able to provide oral reports and discussions of the reading and writing material.
We currently cover the following Mount Rainier-area school district: Prince George’s County Public Schools.

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.
