Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alfred and Plantagenet District Curriculum
The core subjects begin in elementary school by developing foundational abilities in literacy, numeracy, science, and historical understanding. In high school, these subjects are developed more in-depth and when students take English, Math, or Science, they will have the option of taking an Applied Version or an Academic Version. The Applied Version focuses on the practical applications of the skills developed in these courses; the Academic Version emphasizes the theoretical and abstract principles within the subjects.
At the secondary level there are also a number of program options to choose from. The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program offers students a hands-on learning experience in which they fulfill their academic requirements while gaining work experience in a skilled trade. The International Baccalaureate Program is a rigorous college preparatory program that takes an integrated approach to subject learning and expects students to become strong independent learners. All students in the district are also expected to fulfill a Community Involvement requirement that requires them to connect to and collaborate with others in the community.

Alfred and Plantagenet District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students receive a rigorous core education based on clearly explained standards and expectations within the local schools. The process for subject-area learning is detailed in frameworks which describe the progression of learning that students will take in each subject. The expectations are the skills, procedures, knowledge, and core competencies which students will gain in their subjects. These goals are accomplished by working closely with parents and community stakeholders to devise meaningful and relevant learning experiences for children at all grade levels.

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: What Is Scaffolding?
Scaffolding is an instructional method used to build skill upon skill until a student is able to accomplish a complete task or perform an entire set of steps unaided. Scaffolding uses modeling, a common technique, which is when a teacher exemplifies some thinking skill or set of procedures for a student. Parents can use this approach at home when they help their child learn something, like carpentry or cooking, that requires them to go through a number of steps. They may need assistance with some more than others, and so you scaffold accordingly. Essentially, by showing students what to do, step-by-step, a scaffold of ability is built and students are soon able to perform all such procedures or steps independently.
