Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cobourg District Curriculum
In Language, students learn the literacy and communication skills that allow them to read across genres and content areas, write for different purposes, communicate orally and listen well, and to understand media. Decoding and verbal reasoning skills are developed through the variety of literacy tasks and opportunities to express ideas in writing. Students are taught how to analyze and make meaning from different types of texts so they can apply critical thinking to stories, poems, as well as persuasive essays or editorials.
Math provides a basis for scientific learning in terms of the problem-solving methods and procedures that students develop. In algebra, students learn to use operations and functions to find solutions. In geometry, students work through arguments and proofs to find a reasonable answer. The data analysis strand requires that students be familiar with different statistical methods and be able to create models for mathematical outcomes based on their knowledge of quantitative data. These skills are necessary for the advanced courses in science and technology.

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 an Interest in Science
Science is a subject that is easily explored and easily ignored. To help a child see the importance of science, parents only need to ask the child to observe a family pet to see how they adapt to their environment and how they differ from wolves or coyote. Parents can also ask a child to help them as they cook. Many recipes involve the mixing of ingredients to make a totally different item. Talk to the child about how this is a form of chemistry. By bringing science into the home or by making a family activity, the child can see how science is all around them and all they need to do is have fun!
