Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brantford District Curriculum
Brantford area schools use the Ontario Curriculum as the organizing structure for teaching and learning. The Curriculum describes the basic knowledge and the higher order thinking skills that students should develop through their instruction in English, Science, Math and other academic subjects. The standards for learning that are laid out are meant to prepare students for college and future career pursuits and are relevant to 21st century learning expectations.
The technology curriculum, and opportunities to learn using technology, has increased steadily over the years. The curriculum has been responsive to these changes, and beginning in elementary school and extending through high school, students learn about responsible digital citizenship. Students learn about protecting themselves and their personal information online. They also learn about copyright infringement and how to avoid misusing images, songs, videos, and other digital information. Students look to the future as well by predicting changes that will occur in technologies and how those changes will positively or negatively impact society.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Brantford students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Brantford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The academic subjects that students take are overseen by the Ontario Curriculum which has been designed as a means to guide the whole instructional process. The curriculum explains what the major goals of subject learning are, what skills and knowledge should be taught at each grade level, and what students are expected to be able to do and show on performance assessments. Each subject is organized based on its major strands and builds progressively throughout the school years. By high school, a level of advanced and analytic skills is required in all subject areas.
We currently cover the following Brantford-area school districts: Grand Erie School District Board and Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic School District Board.

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: Why Kids Should Volunteer
Volunteerism is becoming a popular component of many high school curriculums, but why? Studies show that volunteering one’s time provides many academic and personal benefits. Student volunteers gain valuable insight into both themselves and the community in which they live. Communication and teamwork skills are fostered, as are practical and job-related skills. Helping others in need facilitates the development of empathy, and demonstrates to young people the interconnected nature of their community. Doing positive deeds helps boost kids’ self-esteem and self-confidence as well. This, in turn, promotes improved mood, reduces stress, and promotes personal growth. Giving back to one’s community also teaches important lessons in civic responsibility and shows kids that every person counts and can make a significant, positive impact on others.
