Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh District Curriculum
The curriculum in English begins with fundamentals in phonetical awareness, language development, reading, and personal expression. During vocabulary acquisition exercises, synonyms and antonyms are explore. Students also learn about connotations and evaluate denotations that are similar to some words and use these strategies to decode other words as they are reading. Literature is used as a window to other worlds as well as a source of analysis, evaluation, and interpretation. Non-fiction is also used in the curriculum so that students develop broad literacy abilities.
The Science framework starts out with basics about physical science, life science, and earth science and offers students plenty of opportunities to learn about the scientific process. Forces, momentum, and motion are also an integral component of the curriculum. Learners study Newton’s laws and explore gravitational, elastic, and friction forces. Air resistance and drag are studied in depth as well. In high school, the foundation in these subjects allow students to explore advanced topics like biodiversity, chemical bonds and reactions, forces of physics, and higher-level environmental science.

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: Parental Involvement in School
There are ways to be involved with a child’s schoolwork other than actually completing it for them. When a child comes home from school, rather than asking how their day was, parents can ask open-ended questions like what did the child enjoy the most. Open-communication with the teacher also helps a child by showing concern. Ask about their friends so that they feel comfortable talking about their social lives as well. Ask how they felt about things that happened at school, as well, so that they have an opportunity to reflect. Set up a place for a child specifically for their homework and finally become involved in the school and the activities that the child enjoys. This involvement shows children that education is important and helps them have better behavior, attitude and attendance.
