Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pikesville District Curriculum
The middle school technology curriculum in Pikesville facilitates student exploration of the development and influence of technologies on the modern world. Students explore various technologies and technology systems, noting their advantages and disadvantages to a number of endeavors, from education to business to communications. Students also examine the design and development processes that are required to develop new technologies. The application of technology to various economic areas is also studied.
The language arts curriculum begins in elementary school where students develop foundational skills required to become effective readers. Students work on phonics and word recognition in order to build the skills necessary to identify and understand the meaning of prefixes, suffixes, and whole words. This includes a study of common Latin suffixes and vowel pronunciation rules that allow children to decode multisyllabic words. These skills allow students to read unfamiliar words accurately. To build fluency, students take part in daily reading exercises.

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: The Importance of Reading
Reading is a critical component for the academic and intellectual growth of children. Studies show that children who read often demonstrate much better understanding of vocabulary, syntax, sentence structure, and other elements that make for better readers and writers. Frequent readers also demonstrate improved concentration and self-control. These qualities lend to better performance in school, particularly in reading-heavy subjects like English and social studies. Reading also gives students insight into the world around them. By exploring different worlds – real and fictional – students develop a deeper sense of empathy for others. Kids’ imaginations also benefit from frequent reading. On a biological level, reading helps exercise our brains. Reading requires far more work than watching TV or YouTube, and as a result, existing neural connections are strengthened and additional ones are created.
