Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cambridge District Curriculum
The elementary level science curriculum introduces children to basic scientific concepts and skills. Students learn how to make observations of the world around them, noting colors, textures, sounds, smells, and other physical criteria that allow things in nature to be classified. Children begin investigations of the weather, noting the changes that occur with the seasons, such as leaves changing color. Energy is a topic that is introduced, with students gaining an appreciation for various types of energy, such as solar, electrical, and heat.
In Math, students learn about many topics including algebra, geometry, and data analysis. In their students of data analysis, students use information from sampling and make comparative inferences with regard to the sample’s characteristics. Students investigate the properties of chance as well, identifying the role of long-run relative frequency in determining chance. Uniform probability models are also used to further students’ understanding of probability outcomes and their ability to correctly determine the probability of events.

Cambridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Curriculum explains what areas of knowledge need to be acquired to be proficient in the subject and then ties those elements of knowledge to broader concepts that will help a student in their future pursuits. Thinking skills like problem solving, choosing proper tools for problem-solving, planning and sequential thinking, and a range of critical thinking skills are gained through this curricular design. The curriculum used in the Cambridge public schools is the Ontario Curriculum. This curriculum has been adopted throughout the province because it lays out an organized manner by which to teach students to high standards of learning.

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: Preparing for College
As a teen prepares to head off to college, there are many ways that parent and teen can prepare for this time. First, parents need to encourage the teen to be independent while giving support. Help them to go through the steps needed to find answers, rather than supplying them all. Parents and teens need to realize that both are going to go through times of wanting the other close and wanting breathing space. Both need to keep in mind that this is normal. Parents can also set up time for the teen to spend time before going off to college with family and friends and to be there when they come home after saying goodbye to these acquaintances. Next, plan for the first day on campus. Parents and teen need to talk about plans, and the excitement that is going to be felt. Parents need to be prepared for the teen to feel ready for the parents to leave before the parents are ready.
