Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brampton District Curriculum
The curriculum used in Brampton public schools is the Ontario Curriculum. The Curriculum lays out all the areas that a student needs to learn about in order to be proficient in the subject. There are both broad conceptual and thinking skills that students will need to master, as well as more basic content knowledge. For instance, in Science and Technology, the major strands of learning encompass Life Systems, Structures and Mechanisms, Matter and Energy, and Earth and Space Systems. By the time students are ready for high school, they will be able to investigate interactions and identify factors that affect the environment.
In Math, the concepts students will be mastering include Number Sense and Numeration, Measurement, Geometry and Spatial Sense, Patterning and Algebra, and Data Management and Probability. Specific expectations of students so that they are prepared for high school math include representing terms in a linear sequence, using algebraic expressions, using measures of central tendency to compare sets of data, and calculating the probability of complementary events. High school introduces a higher complexity of level of these same topics.

Brampton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The academic subjects that students take are overseen by the Ontario Curriculum which has been designed as a means to guide the whole instructional process. The curriculum explains what the major goals of subject learning are, what skills and knowledge should be taught at each grade level, and what students are expected to be able to do and show on performance assessments. Through their mathematics, science, social studies and English instruction students will develop higher order thinking, problem solving, reasoning and critical thinking skills.

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 Importance of Academic Honesty
The advent of the Internet brought with it a multitude of informational sources (albeit not always truthful). With so much free and readily available data, plagiarism has become an all-too-easy task for students from grade school to college. In fact, the most recent generation of students probably doesn’t understand the concept of plagiarism—the fact that information is not always free and its existence belongs to someone else. Teachers and parents have to be diligent about educating children regarding plagiarism, and there are some simple ways students can make sure their work remains honest. First, understand exactly what plagiarism is—claiming someone else’s work as your own or neglecting to quote statements of another person. Second, understand the importance of academic honesty and respect copy write laws. People work hard, and their thoughts, writing, and speaking is intellectual property. You wouldn’t dream of taking credit for inventing Velcro or paper clips, would you? Giving people credit for their work or paying for it is the honest thing to do.
