Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Windsor District Curriculum
Once in high school, the foundational courses introduce students to key topics in earth and space science, biology, chemistry and physics which prepare them for advanced science opportunities. Students continue with these topics and also learn more about environmental science in grades 11-12. They study genetic processes of humans, animals, and plants, cellular and molecular biology, metabolic processes, biomedicine, and population dynamics in biology.
In chemistry, they learn about chemical bonding reactions, gases and atmospheric chemistry, the structure and properties of matter, and electrochemistry. In earth and space science, students study geological processes and planetary science. The environmental science strand focuses on solutions for contemporary problems and sustainable ecosystems. In physics, they learn about energy transformations, gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields, and kinematics.

Windsor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Windsor, teaching and learning follows the design of the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum provides an organized overview of the skills and knowledge required in the core academic subjects and describes the conceptual understanding that students will gain through these subjects. With the use of the Ontario Curriculum, there are also assessments that can be used to verify if students are mastering their subjects. These assessments occur during grades 3, 6, 9 and 10. The assessments are aligned with the curriculum and show if student are proficient in the core academic areas of mathematics and literacy.

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: Helping with Difficult Reading Assignments
When students enter high school, the reading material may be more difficult for them to face. There are ways for parents to help them tackle the reading. First of all, help them decide the best method of reading it. First, determine the length of the book and when the book must be finished. This will allow them to see how many pages, roughly, should be covered per night. If the teen has too much difficulty, see if there is an audio recording of the book. This way the teen can read and listen at the same time. Study guides can also help a teen to work their way through. Finally, if the teen doesn’t mind, the parent can read the book at the same time. The parents and teen can then discuss the book together.
