Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Potomac District Curriculum
Students in Potomac have the opportunity to learn a second language as part of the world languages curriculum. Central to the process of learning a new language is acquiring the ability to communicate in that language in written and verbal forms. At the high school level, students take part in complex discussions with other students in order to develop fluency and a deeper understanding of their target language. This includes both verbal and written exchanges about topics in the past, present, and future tenses.
The health curriculum in Potomac provides students with sound knowledge of health concepts that lead to improved mental health, nutrition, and fitness. Elementary schools students develop an understanding about emotions, what causes one’s emotions to change, and how to recognize their feelings and the feelings of others. Communication principles are introduced, with students developing the ability to discuss serious issues with their peers, family members, and teachers.

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: Involved Parents Make for Better Students
Much research has been conducted on factors that influence a child’s level of success in school. The primary factor that determines this success is the level of involvement of that child’s parents. Parental involvement is much more than asking what homework your child has or attending one or two parent-teacher conferences a year. Involvement in your child’s everyday learning tasks is extremely important if they are to achieve their highest possible potential. Students whose parents read to them and with them, sit down and help them with their homework, and are communicative with teachers have a much higher level of success in school. This includes higher standardized test scores, better achievement on class assignments, and more timely submission of homework. Students with involved parents also demonstrate better attitudes about education, more dedication to their studies, and improved behavior at school.
