Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ottawa District Curriculum
Students in Ottawa are taught based on the standards of learning laid out in the Ontario Curriculum. This is the framework for the academic subjects; it describes the knowledge that is essential to each subject. Beyond that, the bigger picture concept and higher level thinking skills that students will gain through their education are also detailed so that a logical scope and sequence is established for learning in each subject. The curriculum ensures that teachers have freedom and opportunities to personalize learning.
In the 21st century, the expectations of students and professionals require critical thinking, problem solving and reasoning abilities. These thinking skills are developed through the knowledge base provided by the subjects in areas like algebra or life science or poetry, among many others. Students learn how to follow procedures in a precise manner, develop observational and analytic skills. Each topic relates to its overarching subject and helps build a student's ability to thinking in conceptual and abstract ways.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Ottawa students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Ottawa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts that serve Ottawa’s students follow the frameworks established in the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum reflects the expectations students will face in the global economy and help students be able to use resources and find information, and to place more emphasis on concepts and processes, and to focus on learning less material but in greater depth. The curriculum also establishes many program options so that students can develop mastery in languages, high skills specialist areas and a wide variety of scientific fields. There is also an option for students to enroll in the International Baccalaureate Programme which is an intensive, college-preparatory curriculum.

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.

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: What Is the OSSLT?
The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is a standardized assessment given to students in grade 10 covering all range of literacy, writing and language-based skills. The goal of the assessment is to ensure that students have proficient literacy skills with which to complete the advanced coursework of high school and be prepared for college and career. The assessment is a requirement for graduation and students can re-take the assessment if they do not succeed on it the first time. The test can help show students the areas where they need to have instruction increased so that all students are able to develop a full range of literacy skills.
