Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherstburg District Curriculum
Within the schools goals of educating the whole student, offering diverse academic opportunities, and preparing students for their college and career goals, the curriculum serves as a guideline for essential skills, knowledge, and concepts students need to learn about.
The goal for students in their Language classes is to teach the literacy means for understanding, communicating, connecting, and thinking critically about texts. Students are taught to recognize points of view, and be able to discuss and respond in writing. Student instruction in writing is a significant part of this curriculum and proper usage of language is expected.
In Math, the curriculum ranges from basic numerical operations and measurements of quantities, through methods to analyze such data and use it to make models and to construct mathematic arguments. In each different course like Geometry, Algebra or Statistics, students gain different procedures for problem-solving.

Amherstburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum describes the series of progressive learning objectives that guide students progress in mastering each subject. It describes the types of analytic strategies that students should apply to their reading, the problem-solving procedures associated with different fields of math, or the content and procedural skills that students should be gaining in science. Teachers and staff members dedicate themselves to fostering each student’s unique talents and aptitudes. Doing so also makes education more fun and relevant because students are able to pursue some of their individual interests within the larger scope of the district’s curriculum.

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 Reading Comprehension
Parents can help their children become stronger readers by helping them comprehend what they read. To do this, parents need to model how they go about understanding the written word. First of all, when a descriptive phrase pops up out of the reading, parents can talk with the child about the picture that comes to their mind and then ask the child to share. Also, when reading with the child, stop from time to time to see if the child can pick out some of the main points in the reading, then ask them the important details that the author used to support the main ideas. Parents can also ask the child for predictions of what will happen on the next page and even at the end of the story. Each of these steps will help make the child a reader that will make connections in the reading.
