Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Augusta District Curriculum
In Math, students build the foundation of problem-solving by learning about operations, measurement, ways of representing and verifying their work, and how to communicate mathematic information. Students learn how to work with various types of equations and perform logical reasoning in sequential order. In Science, the foundation of content knowledge encompasses life and earth sciences, principles of structures and the physical world, and topics in environmental science.
In English Language Arts, comprehension and analysis strategies are taught for both fiction and non-fiction. Students study vocabulary and grammar, and also the craft and structure of literature. By doing so, they are more informed as writers to make decisions about word choices, tone, and purpose. Students learn how to conduct research and use what they have read to inform their opinions and ideas. Supporting a thesis statement with evidence is an integral feature of the writing curriculum and students learn how to develop analytic writing that is cohesive, well organized, and on point.

Augusta District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Teaching and learning in Augusta’s schools uses the subject area overview provided by the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum is a series of frameworks specific to each academic subject which detail the progress of learning students are expected to achieve from kindergarten through graduation. Clear expectations for grade-level learning and experiential opportunities are delineated within the frameworks. During the elementary years, students begin their learning in English, History, Languages, Math, and Science. Each subject is designed to provide content knowledge, process and procedural knowledge, and introduces key concepts and principles.

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: Helping Children Develop Social Skills
Parents are a great model to a child on how to build social skills. To help build these skills parents can demonstrate how to have empathy for others by asking a child what they are feeling and talking about how certain situations make the parent feel. Another social skill children need to be aware of is how to manage their emotions. This can include feelings of anxiety, frustration and anger. Parents can open conversations with the child about how they deal with each of these feelings and see if the child has other acceptable ideas. Finally, talk through problems or decisions within a child’s hearing. Each of these skills enable the child to learn how to deal with emotions and interactions with other.
