Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westminster District Curriculum
The Carroll County Public School System uses the Maryland State Curriculum as their foundation for teaching Math. Mathematics at the elementary level includes a focus on learning numbers, counting, mathematical processes such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Students also learn the base ten numbering system, how to solve word problems, and the basics of Algebra and Geometry.
At the middle school level, students move toward an understanding of higher level mathematics, and the comprehension of abstract mathematical concepts. Middle School students learn measurement tools, equations, fractions, decimals, percents, ratios and basic geometry and algebraic concepts. High school students are required to take at least three credits of Math including Algebra and Geometry. The focus in Math is to help students learn to use and apply mathematical concepts in real life.

Westminster District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Elementary school education is provided for students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade in the Carroll County Public School System. The major areas of study at the elementary level are Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Integrated Language Arts. In Elementary English and Language Arts, students build on their abilities as they progress through the elementary grades. Students learn to read using phonics and other reading methods. As students progress they learn to improve their vocabulary, and their ability to write and use language. Students learn to read text, analyze and discuss it to develop their reading comprehension skills. Learning how to locate and use research materials is also part of the program.
We currently cover the following Westminster-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.
