Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Central Elgin District Curriculum
In Math, the design of the curriculum serves to instill basic math skills in students in areas like precise measurement, collection and representation of data, abilities to manipulate data and figures, and then moves students toward focused classes in algebra, geometry, statistics and calculus. In these classes, students develop a deeper understanding of relationships between equations, functions and principles of geometry, and methods of making advanced calculations using a range of abstract and quantitative reasoning skills.
English is designed to provide students with essential literacy and communication skills, and also to help them develop an appreciation for literature and its forms. Students utilize multiple sources to examine the differences in which information can be presented. They study media as an example of texts which they can analyze and interpret. These thinking skills are used throughout the range of reading, writing, and oral communication students participate in.

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: Developing Self-Esteem in Children
A child with positive self-image has a greater tendency to avoid drugs, alcohol, unhealthy relationships and delinquent behavior. To help do this can be a long process for the parents. First of all, parents should be aware of the strengths and weaknesses in a child, then they should reinforce the positive traits. However, the parent also needs to be aware of avoiding excess praising in order for it to remain true. Next, limits and consequences, as well as rigidity and flexibility should be carefully balanced. Expectations should be real and consistent. Consequences should not be judgmental or attacking. Finally, the child needs to be listened to. Parents need to take this time to give the child undivided attention. By listening the parent can pick up on areas to ask about and remember. This is not a time of fixing things but of letting the child guide the conversation.
