Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Halton Hills District Curriculum
The subjects of Math and Science are increasingly critical in this technological age. Many of the advanced program offerings are in technical fields and these require that students have a strong foundation in math and science. Mathematic and scientific literacy as well as means of communicating in these subjects are also becoming topics that are increasingly emphasized. The processes of inquiry, problem-solving, and discovery are over-arching outcomes anticipated by the learning expectations.
Students also have the chance to take advanced courses in the humanities and social sciences. Programs that offer students the chance to integrate subject matter and pursue independent study are available within the curricular framework. Such opportunities increase student abilities in critical areas like planning, time and project management, giving them invaluable skills to apply in future pursuits.

Halton Hills District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Halton’s districts offer a diverse array of classes, pathways, and career-options for students to pursue during their school years. All of the subjects and programs fall under the Ontario Curriculum, which provides the framework for learning in each area. The subject-area frameworks are organized so that student learning from K-12 is on a logical continuum and students learn grade-appropriate skills essential for their learning process. Literacy in all subjects is important as is the goal of cultural and social awareness which can be gained through reading. It is a wide-reaching curriculum with outcomes that enable student learning across the curriculum. Community service and the development of personal attributes such as respect and integrity are also infused in the curriculum and students are expected to make connections between what they are learning and their own lives.

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: Benefits of Small Classes
Reducing class size, particularly at the elementary level, has been an area of emphasis for many school districts throughout the nation. The move to reduce the number of kids in a given class is based on a body of research that indicates that smaller class sizes provide many benefits to students. The obvious benefit of smaller class sizes is that teachers have a greater ability to interact with each student in a more personal manner. Rather than bouncing from one student to the next, teachers can instead spend more one-on-one time with students to better facilitate their growth and development. This, in turn, helps boost student achievement. Research indicates that standardized test scores go up, class grades increase, and behavioral issues decline. There is a social benefit for students as well. Studies show that in smaller classes, students develop stronger bonds with their peers, which leads to greater feelings of connectedness and positive feelings of self-worth.
