Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bowmanville District Curriculum
The elementary school English language arts curriculum focuses on developing foundational skills so students become effective readers and writers. Students work on recognizing parts of speech, including nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns. Sentence structure is also examined, with students gaining an understanding of capitalization and punctuation procedures. Learners work on phonological awareness as well. Syllabic recognition and word recognition are perfected, as is phonemic awareness. Students are expected to learn to read both out loud and silently with fluency.
At the high school level, students will take courses in the core subjects, as well as technology, music, art, library, world languages, physical education, health, and participate in programs at the Outdoor Learning Centre. In the high school, students prepare for post-secondary education and work. Their course options are consistent with that of the middle school, with additions of business, a career exploration internship, work experience program, career and technical education, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

Bowmanville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the local schools was developed by the Ministry of Education and offers research-based standards of learning within all subjects. The standards of learning represent the essential knowledge within the subject that students need to comprehend in order to become proficient in that subject. Beyond the basic knowledge developed through the academic areas, there are also broader concepts and thinking skills that students will develop. Students will understand how major systems work, will understand scientific and mathematic processes and develop critical thinking and reasoning skills as they gain knowledge in their subjects.
We currently cover the following Bowmanville-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland Clarington Catholic District School Board.

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: The Emergence of Culinary Arts Programs
As home economics courses have waned over the past few decades, many schools attempt to teach cooking to students through similar classes. Life skills, family and consumer science, and other types of curricula may involve simple kitchen-based tasks. As schools focus heavily on core academic instruction, it is important to remember the essential skills needed to survive. Cooking is one of them, and teaching it to children can benefit them in more ways than just eating. Culinary arts programs have also become a popular course of study and follows from the food revolution in the last couple decades. Not only do students learn techniques and about food, but they also learn about the chemistry of food and have to work with measurements in a very precise way. These programs also prepare students for higher education in this field, which can lead to a great many work opportunities.
