Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Riverdale Park District Curriculum
The Maryland Content Standards are a comprehensive curriculum that covers all subject areas from the core academics to arts and career programs. The standards encompass other curricular frameworks as well, including the Common Core Standards for Math and Language Arts, and the College and Career Readiness Standards. The core subjects of Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies are all taught based on the major topics in each and then establishes the learning goals students should meet each year.
For example, the English Language Arts curriculum is focused on the strands of reading, writing, listening and speaking, language and vocabulary, media viewing, and conducting research. In reading, students learn the fundamentals and the begin to develop the skills of critical readership such as asking questions of a text, making predictions, and recognizing an authors point of view. They continue to become more independent in their reading and writing.

Riverdale Park District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Prince George’s County Public Schools System follows Maryland Content Standards which lay the foundation for a broad and comprehensive learning experience for each student. Students master the basics during elementary school, and then are introduced to more complex work during middle school. By high school, students begin to have more options which tie in to potential career goals and allow them to either specialize their education or take a more generalized approach. Both are encouraged so that students follow the path best suited to their learning and post-secondary work goals.
We currently cover the following Riverdale Park-area school district: Prince George’s County Public Schools System.

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: What Is Curriculum Design?
Curriculum design is a part of the educational process where educators and other stakeholders determine how the curriculum should be organized and what skills and knowledge students should attain. Some curriculum are designed in a progressive manner, whereby learning follows certain major strands. For instance, in Math, students focus on the topics of numeracy and operational ability, algebraic thinking, geometry and measurement, and data analysis. The design of the curriculum is to teach all of these in a way that develops the basics in young learners and then compounds the learning each year until they reach the ability to do more advanced work. The goal of curriculum design is also to ensure that all subject learning follows the same type of framework, giving coherence to the whole educational process.
