Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chatham District Curriculum
The social studies curriculum includes a comprehensive examination of contemporary world issues. Students examine various global connections and how those connections are becoming increasingly important in our highly globalized society. Learners explore various trade agreements, political and military alliances, and international organizations that seek to bring countries together for a singular purpose. Students examine civil rights, and explore how maintenance of those rights varies from location to location.
The Ontario Curriculum has established career-oriented pathways that students may take once they are in secondary school. Not all students are required to choose a pathway or to have made the decision about their academic goals by this point. The offerings are extensive, so by getting a strong academic background and being introduced to a range of elective subjects, students have an educational experience that helps them make decisions about their future.

Chatham District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in Chatham was developed by the Ministry of Education based on national and international standards of learning that are meant to prepare students for their future work and learning pursuits. The curriculum describes what areas of learning are required for students in each subject so that they may become proficient in that subject. In addition to the basic skills and knowledge within each subject, the Ontario Curriculum also describes the deeper level concept that students will be working with in each subject. The goal is to use both the skills and the concepts to teach students critical thinking, problem-solving, reasoning and other 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: Building a Child’s Character
When it comes to building character, there is no better role model than the parents. However, there are other ways to help a child in this area. First, parents should praise their children when they see them behaving in a positive way. For example, when they share with others, or say please, or thank you, they need to know that these are acceptable. Another way to build character is to look at the child in a positive way. So when a child who is seen as selfish shares a toy with another, they need to have this pointed out. Instead of stating that the child is so selfish, point out the times they are not. Finally, any time they do something for others voluntarily, talk with them about how it felt. These are a few ways to help make a difference in child and those around them.
