Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Carrolltown District Curriculum
PGCPS is implementing the Common Core standards for Math. In elementary school, students start by learning counting and cardinality and move to mathematical operations including arithmetic, measurements, simple algebra, and geometry. Middle school students will learn to use proportional relationships, ratios, rational numbers, equations, basic Geometry, statistics, mathematical expressions, and probability in order to be ready for high school algebra and geometry which are requirements for graduation.
In algebra, students will learn complex equations, relationships between quantities, exponential relationships, descriptive statistics, quadratic functions and modeling. In the required geometry course students will learn the concepts of proof and constructions, similarity, congruence, circle theorems, probability, and the fundamentals of trigonometry.

New Carrolltown District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
As of 2010, Maryland and the State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English/Language Arts. The standards were created to establish uniformity across states and from school to school, ensuring that students are receiving the same quality education. Prince George’s County Public School District is moving to put the Maryland Common Core Curriculum in place as the district’s basis for curriculum in Math and Language Arts. The curriculum covers all grades from Pre-K through 12th grade and is based on progressive learning of the same type of material but with increasing complexity.
At the elementary school level, students in the PGCPS district focus on reading skills as part of their curriculum. The program includes the use of phonics and word analysis. The curriculum is focused on understanding reading material and being able to discuss the reading in class. As students master basic reading skills, the students are expected to provide feedback and analysis of what they have read including in written form and in oral presentations. In middle school, students are expected to analyze their reading, and identify the organization of the writing including themes, and main ideas. Students should also be able to write opinion pieces on the reading and back up their opinion with additional facts. High school students will focus on analyzing complex reading material. Students will be expected to relate their reading material to other literature and to write multifaceted essays on the reading. In the area of writing, high school students will be expected to be able to write detailed research reports.
We currently cover the following New Carrolltown-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 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.
