Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Toronto District Curriculum
The Elementary Grades Program in Language emphasizes literacy and communication skills through the development of language awareness and proper usage, vocabulary acquisition strategies, decoding skills, and instruction in writing for different purposes. In Secondary School, the English Curriculum assumes the responsibility of teaching the more advanced literacy and communication skills students will need for college and career. Writing is an essential element to the curriculum and students are expected to use the language properly in all types of written expression.
Using the elementary foundation in Math and Science, once students are in grade 9 they take a foundational math course that introduces advanced topics in algebra, geometry, and data analysis and a foundational science course introducing the principles of biology, chemistry, and physics. Following that, students will be able to take year-long courses in these topics. Opportunities to pursue advanced and engaging coursework is provided through the curriculum within their program offerings.

Toronto District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Toronto schools use the Ontario Curriculum which provides an organized framework for all the subject areas. This curriculum is used throughout the province to prepare all students for their future pursuits. The curriculum provides a guideline for what needs to be learned in order to master the core subjects. The standardized assessments which students participate in during their school years monitors individual proficiency and whole-grade gains in the skills and knowledge in English and Math. These tests are aligned to the Ontario Curriculum and organized in a style similar to the curricular framework.

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: Tips to Get into College
With the number of teens applying to school, it is helpful for a teen to know what they can do to grab the attention of the admission office. Colleges like to see that a student is willing to challenge themselves while working to keep good grades. With this in mind, Advanced Placement courses are also encouraged. To the colleges a B in an Advanced Placement class is better than an A in a standard course. If the teen has some learning issues they may benefit from taking an extended timed SAT or ACT. Finally, demonstrate to the teacher interest in learning and improving skills, not just about receiving high marks. Ask what they can recommend for other reading. With these hints, the student will be well on their way to making an impression in their high school and at the college admission office.
