Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Belleville District Curriculum
The elementary Language curriculum focuses on the development of critical reading and writing skills. In reading, by 7th grade, students are expected to be able to recognize different genres of literature, identify purposes for reading choices, demonstrate comprehension through discussion or written response, make inferences and extend meaning, and analyse how texts arrive at their meaning. In writing, students are taught to organize and develop their content prior to writing, then use their knowledge of text structures to draft an essay or story. Students are also expected to apply their knowledge of vocabulary and grammar conventions to their own writing.
The elementary Math curriculum calls upon students to be able to perform increasingly complex procedures by the end of 7th grade. Students are expected to represent and order decimals, fractions, and integers, they are also expected to be able to apply order of operations in expressions with brackets and solve problems involving whole-number percents and unit rates. In data management and probability skills, students are required to display data in relative frequency tables and circle graphs and make inferences based on data.

Belleville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Belleville, the curriculum used in the public schools is the Ontario Curriculum. This is the framework that organizes the skills within each academic subject so that teachers may cover them all. Each subject has a range of areas that require extended periods of instruction – like a major unit in Algebra, or a long study of non-fiction texts. Beyond these units of study, however, are broader concepts that students will understand like problem-solving and reasoning. The Ontario Curriculum provides both the higher order thinking that students will learn in conjunction with the basic knowledge of each subject area.
We currently cover the following Belleville-area school districts: Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board and Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board.

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: Ontario's Graduation Requirements
In Ontario, students must pass two major assessments in grades 9 and 10 that are requirements for gaining a high school diploma. In Grade 9, all students must demonstrate proficiency on the Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics and in Grade 10 students must pass the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. Regularly discussing your child’s progress with him or her, as well as the teacher is necessary to prepare each student for the test. After ensuring your child is receiving the best preparatory instruction, practice with him or her at home. Testing varies at each grade level, so find supplemental materials that are developmentally appropriate. You can probably ask a teacher for resources, as well. Don’t overwork your child, as you don’t want him or her to burnout; however, introduce the concept of taking tests and strategies. The best thing you can do for your child is teach them how to take tests and how to cope with the stresses involved with testing.
