Collingwood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Collingwood, learning is guided by the Ontario Curriculum and centers on core academic learning which is enriched by innovative programs that are designed to promote students’ engagement in their education. As the curriculum is quite extensive, it also serves multiple purposes. One expected outcome is that students will acquire a strong base of knowledge across the subject areas and be proficient in the different skills and knowledge of English, Math, or Science. Another goal is to bring about higher-order and critical thinking skills like mathematic reasoning or the analysis of texts.

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: Choosing an Enrichment Program or Extracurricular Activity
Enrichment and extracurricular learning is a big part of a student's development. They should be taken as an opportunity to enhance learning in an area of particular interest and also as a chance to try out something that sounds somewhat interesting. There are a number of extracurriculars that have made a big impact in students' lives and helped them to realize what they want to do in their future. For instance, Mock Trial or the Debate Team has a long tradition and is well-suited for future lawyers, politicians, and community leaders. Mathletics and Science Olympiad offer students who excel in these subjects the chance for competition and collaborative learning. Students should take these opportunities seriously and find an option that can support their personal goals and interests.
