Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Olney District Curriculum
Olney’s students can participate in a world languages curriculum that facilitates the development of second language skills. Once elementary students select a target language of study, they begin learning how to read, write, and speak common words and phrases. Students learn appropriate parts of speech, and discover how to carry on brief conversations with others. Middle school learners work on the presentational level, in which they provide information to other students in past, present, and future tenses. To develop these skills more deeply, students ask and answer questions, give or follow directions, or write short messages.
The math curriculum in Olney includes various high school offerings, from Algebra I and II to Geometry. In Algebra I, students examine the relationships between quantities and explore how to use equations to solve problems. Quantitative reasoning is also an area of emphasis, as is gaining the ability to examine the structure of expressions. Systems of equations are addressed as well, with students learning how to use different representations to solve complex problems.

Olney District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in Olney that attend public school do so within the Montgomery County Public School system. The district’s overall mission is to prepare students that are career and college ready. To do so, the district has implemented a rigorous curriculum that challenges students to go beyond what they think is possible. With in-class and out-of-class learning experiences that allow kids to apply what they’ve learned to real-life scenarios, students are able to make connections between what they learn in school and how that learning applies in the real world. Preparation for life in the 21st century is emphasized as well.
We currently cover the following Olney-area school district: Montgomery 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.

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: Why Children Need Sports
Sports, be they individual or team-based, are an integral component of K-12 education. Involvement in sports gives kids an opportunity to engage in physical activities, stay healthy, and maintain wellness. Sports are also a great stress reliever. Kids that play sports can blow off steam and energy, which improves mood. There are academic and social benefits as well. Sports teach kids how to prioritize tasks and manage their time wisely. Research shows that children who play sports have improved concentration and a greater capacity for goal setting. On the social side, student-athletes develop more refined communication skills because of the need to communicate with and support their teammates. They also demonstrate a greater affinity for teamwork and an improved capacity for taking responsibility when things go wrong.
