Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bolton District Curriculum
In addition to a description of the basic knowledge students develop, the Ontario Curriculum describes the more advanced areas of thinking that students will develop during their course of study. The math curriculum in grade 9 calls for students to be able to solve first-degree equations and manipulate numerical and polynomial expressions. Students are also expected to develop an understanding of the characteristics of a linear relation and interpret the meanings of points on scatter plots or graphs that represent linear relations. These skills helps students to develop relational reasoning and hone their ability to solve problems with precision.
In English, a higher level of analysis is called for in students approach to reading. They are expected to analyse the perspectives in what they read and ask questions about the values or beliefs of the author. Another critical literacy goal is to have students determine the effectiveness of a text and use textual evidence to support their claims. During high school, the use of evidence to support analytic claims about both fiction and non-fiction is a significant expectation and students must also demonstrate this skill in their written assignments.

Bolton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Bolton area schools use the Ontario Curriculum as the framework for teaching and learning. The Curriculum is a framework that describes what skill sets students need to develop in their courses each year in order to be proficient and prepared to enter the next stage. These skills represent the standards of learning that students are assessed in during provincial testing. Higher level thinking skills like reasoning and self-reflection are brought about through the skills taught in Algebra and English, and concepts like systems of governance are taught through the Social Studies Curriculum. Within the curriculum, each subject contains a detailed description of these higher level and conceptual learning goals.

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: The Benefits of High School College Programs
Did you know that you could attend college courses at many institutions, even if your current high school does not offer such programs? It’s true! Many community colleges and universities provide educational opportunities specifically for high school students. Students can enroll for evening classes during the school year or attend summer programs. It may even be possible to design a personal curriculum through your own high school; it never hurts to discuss your ideas with an administrator or guidance counselor. These courses typically allow students to earn college credit. Although not every class will earn you credit, the courses are designed to help students understand better the rigors and options involved in collegiate study. Wherever you live, it is possible to find the program right for you. Look online, discuss your options with your parents and school staff, and take a chance at college.
