Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waterloo District Curriculum
The Elementary and Secondary Curriculum for Math details seven processes which students are expected to become proficient in and the strands of Math which they will take to accomplish this. Students will take classes that teach increasingly complex lessons in numeracy and operations, measurement, geometry and spatial sense, patterning and algebra, and data analysis and probability. Students become able to use mathematical models and analyze data sets from different standpoints. These abilities bring about the abstract or quantitative reasoning students need to pursue advanced topics in Math, Science, Technology and Engineering.
The options available to students, particularly once they are in Secondary School, require a strong foundation in mathematical literacy, communication of mathematical thought, and proficiency in all problem-solving modes. They will need to use all of them in many subjects, and it is through the development of the specific skills and concepts taught each year that students are able to.

Waterloo District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Waterloo, the framework provided by the Ontario Curriculum guides the educational process from planning instruction to assessing student’s abilities in their classes. The goal of curriculum is to explain the broad goals and the specific expectations for subject learning in each grade. All subjects that students take in school have a detailed curriculum in this model. Mathematics and Language are considered core academic subjects, and are the basis of province-wide assessments, because of the critical thinking and problem-solving skills students develop in them and the foundation the subjects provide for learning in all other areas.

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: Homework Help in High School
Parents are not always sure how to help their teen with the homework they face in high school. At times, they are afraid to teach differently than the teacher or they are afraid they may not understand the topic covered. By the time the student is in high school, they should be responsible for their own work, however, the parent can still be helpful. Show an interest in what they are learning. Discuss homework assignments. This shows interest and shows what they are doing is important. One time when help may be needed is when the teen is preparing for tests. Offer to help them by quizzing them or looking over essays. Do not fix anything, but offer support and advice when asked. Otherwise, allow them to be completely responsible.
