Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Taneytown District Curriculum
The Carroll County Public School system has adopted the Maryland State Curriculum for the Math curriculum in their schools. At the elementary school level, students focus on learning basic arithmetic including numbers, counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In addition, the curriculum includes learning the base ten numbering system, solving word problems, and the fundamentals of Algebra, Geometry, statistics and measurement. Middle school students learn more advanced functions in Algebra, and Geometry, in addition to measurement tools, equations, decimals, fractions, percentages, and ratios.
High school students are required to take and pass both high school level Algebra and Geometry to earn their three credits in Math for graduation. A three course sequence of mathematical coursework is required for all students going on to college including Algebra & Data Analysis, Intermediate Algebra & Data Analysis, and Algebra II and Data Analysis. High school students are expected to apply the knowledge they have acquired to real world situations.

Taneytown District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
At the elementary school level, students learn the basics of Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Integrated Language Arts. The curriculum is progressive in all subjects including the English and Language Arts program. In the early grades, students are focused on acquiring reading skills through the use of phonics and other set reading methods. Once students have basic reading and writing skills, they learn to work on adding to their vocabulary, and analyze what they have read both in written form and orally. There is also an emphasis on learning how to do basic research and how to analyze sources.
We currently cover the following Taneytown-area school district: Carroll 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.
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.
