Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Towson District Curriculum
Students studying physical education in Towson do so in a number of realms. In the motor learning strand, students devise practice plans that allow them to build skills necessary for participation in games. This includes the development of both open and closed skills. Learners also explore biomechanical principles that underlie muscle performance and production of force. Students learn about various muscle groups, analyze how the size of a muscle impacts the amount of force produced, and investigate how the distance a muscle must stretch impacts force as well.
Towson’s fine arts curriculum gives elementary and middle school students the opportunity to learn dance. Students learn about the various elements of dance and how those elements are used to communicate meaning to an audience. As part of that, students explore various genres of dance and interpret ideas and concepts unique to each form of dance. Kinesthetic awareness is also studied. Students learn about alignment, flexibility, endurance, balance, and timing as part of their pursuit of the technical skills required to perform dance moves in a fluid, proficient, and safe manner.

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 Music Education
There are many benefits that students derive from studying music. The discipline required to practice and commit oneself to studying music means music students manage their time effectively and set appropriate, attainable goals. Students who study music also demonstrate improved academic abilities, including better scores on standardized measures of math. Research shows that these students scored 27 percent higher on tests involving proportional math and fractions. Math proficiency in general is higher for students that study music, particularly in the middle school and high school years. SAT scores are higher for students that engage in musical performance as well, on both verbal and mathematical measures. Music students also demonstrate better behavior in school, with far fewer discipline referrals than their peers.
