Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ajax District Curriculum
The curriculum for Language gives an overview of the types of literacy, communication, and thinking skills students will develop from elementary to high school. The early grades provide students with time to read for pleasure and also focus on basic phonemic and grammatical topics. These build the skills students need for literary analysis and to evaluate non-fiction and informational texts. Students write literary responses and structured papers which are expected to show awareness of language conventions, the ability to develop a topic, and an awareness of purpose and audience.
Math, Science, and Technology are areas in which there are a number more course offerings than in the past. Technology has increased the possibilities for instruction and classes taught, and students are able to take a full complement of courses to develop technological ability that would prepare them for a successful career. Productivity tools are introduced as well, so kids learn how to harness the power of technology to conduct research, complete assignments, and collaborate with other learners.

Ajax District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides a framework for the instructional process used in the schools in Ajax. This curriculum is designed to cover the core academic subjects and electives. There are curricular frameworks developed for and used in programs that have a specific approach or method, such as International Baccalaureate or Outdoor Education, which specify program objectives and serves as a roadmap to the expected outcomes. The curriculum frameworks for each subject or program serve to guide the goals of teaching, the outcomes of learning, and provide a fair basis for creating assessments.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Building a Good Study Environment
Creating a space that a child is able to study and complete homework is important to helping them succeed at school. The area should be away from things that may distract the child. This should have good lighting, supplies that will be needed and a computer, along with a table or desk. To help the child’s subconscious realize the child’s potential place some well-placed, colorful, positive affirmation phrases placed around the area. A calendar is also useful so the child can keep an eye on potential due dates and the progress they have made. These few items will help the child realize that when they enter this area, serious work is going to be completed.
