Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Silver Spring District Curriculum
The science curriculum in Silver Spring is based on the Next Generation Science Standards. As part of these standards, students develop the scientific skills they need to conduct scientific investigations. Learners construct knowledge by developing experiments. Students learn how to formulate hypotheses, design investigations, and collect and analyze data. The scientific method is studied in detail, with students developing an appreciation for the procedures involved in scientific studies.
Students in Silver Spring can participate in a world languages curriculum that facilitates the development of second language skills. In addition to learning how to read, write, speak, and listen in a new language, students develop an appreciation for culture and make connections between various communities. Students learn about mores and norms, and acquire the ability to replicate appropriate behavior in a given context. Games, holiday celebrations, and songs are a few of the kinds of activities students participate in to get a better idea of the cultural context in which their target language is spoken.

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 Value of Public Speaking Skills
Having the ability to speak well in public is an essential skill that students need to master in order to achieve their highest possible potential. Even though not all students will grow up to be professional speakers, having the ability to speak confidently to others is a key to success. People that are comfortable speaking to groups generally have increased self-confidence. This confidence translates to interpersonal communication as well. One’s public speaking abilities can be use to enhance one-on-one communication. Being more comfortable around others serves to boost self-confidence that much more. Being able to get one’s message across in an effective manner opens many doors. From college interviews to job interviews to business transactions, having command of presentational skills can open many doors.
