Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Arran-Elderslie District Curriculum
Core subjects such as Math, Science, English or History serve to teach more than the basics of computation or how to read and write. Each subject helps students to develop higher-order thinking skills which they will use during secondary and post-secondary school. History helps students to understand the past and present events of the world, and provides students with a base in concepts like political and economic thought. In English, interpretative and evaluative thinking is developed through both reading and writing.
The fine arts program offers students the chance to learn about different forms of art, its history, and professional elements of the field. For instance, in drama studies, students engage in a review of the dramatic arts throughout history. Students examine seminal works from playwrights such as Shakespeare, and evaluate the artistic choices playwrights make to enhance the overall message of their work. The jobs in a theatre production are also discussed. Students explore the duties associated with being an actor, director, or costume and set designer.

Arran-Elderslie District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides a comprehensive plan for students’ educational development. It encompasses the elementary and secondary core academic subjects as well as the programs like Outdoor Education or Language Immersion. The curriculum explains what students should learn at each grade level and the major concepts they should be developing an understanding about. There is an emphasis on developing critical thought and personal responsibility as well. Through various before and after-school programs, extracurricular activities, clubs, and athletics, children have ample opportunity to learn, grow, and develop the skills they need to be responsible citizens.

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: Positive Discipline
Positive disciple can help a child develop their own ability to have self-control, responsibility and help in decision making. Some ways to approach this type of discipline is to recognize the things that the child does right, this encourages them to repeat the behavior. When consequences are called for, make sure that it is directly related to the unacceptable behavior, respectful to the child and is reasonable. Make sure the child realizes that mistakes give us an opportunity to learn. Finally, make sure when the child is making decisions that the child sees that there are choices that they can make. Many schools are now using a Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) system that recognizes the good things that all students do.
