Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vaughan District Curriculum
In Math, the curriculum begins with the basics of numeracy, computation, measurement, and mathematical literacy. Students develop the ability to analyze information presented on graphs, charts, and in other models. They learn about geometry, shapes, and spatial relationships and are introduced to basic concepts in algebra. In high school, the grade 9 course prepares students for secondary math and is offered in either an Applied or an Academic version. Both versions use the same grade-level expectations, the difference in focus is on the practical or theoretical aspects of the topics.
In English language arts, students learn about the structure and conventions of the language, about different types of literary and non-fiction texts, ways to express themselves in written work, and how to participate in discussions about books and ideas. The analytic decoding skills students develop in the readings they do enable them to conduct the research expected in other subjects. Students are expected to develop the ability to infer the meaning in words and texts and come to a conclusion about the author's purpose in writing a text.

Vaughan District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Vaughan’s public schools use the Ontario Curriculum as the instructional framework for teaching and learning in the core subjects. The curriculum describes what a student should know and be able to do within each subject. The curriculum is used across the province as it is designed to ensure college and career readiness for students. With the development of the Ontario Curriculum, there are assessment tools that measure the success students are having at achieving proficiency in the subjects. In grades 3, 6, 9 and 10 students will take province-wide assessments aligned to the curriculum in literacy and mathematics.

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: Learning to Let Go
As teens are preparing for a more independent time in their lives, it is difficult for many parents to let them go. When the high school student faces college it is time for the parent to allow the teen to take the lead through the college application process. During college visits listen to the teen to see how they feel about the school, they are the ones that will be going to the school so they need to feel comfortable. Make sure the student understands finances. College costs include housing, tuition, food, transportation and books. These can be enough to cause difficulties with the parent’s finances. Look into a college survival course at the college.
