Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cramahe District Curriculum
Literacy and communication are key components of learning, and the English curriculum is designed to support literacy in all subject areas. Students also develop valuable critical thinking skills which they are able to apply to other subject areas as well.
In Math, the curriculum begins with fundamentals of numeracy, measurement, data, spatial relations, patterning and other basic topics. In high school, the focus begins with a principles course in algebra, geometry and data analysis and students are then able to take courses within each area.
The Science curriculum starts off with learning about biology, earth and space, and structures and mechanisms. Students are prepared for their high school classes in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Earth and Space, and Environmental Science.

Cramahe District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used as the foundation for teaching, learning, and assessments in the local school districts. The curriculum specifies the learning expectations in all subjects, including elective courses and specialized programs, though maintains a strong focus on core academics. Each subject is framed as a trajectory of learning starting in the elementary years and moving through towards graduation. Once students are in high school they are able to make decisions about the pathway that they will be on, from choosing between academic or applied subjects and opting into programs that provide a specialized focus.
We currently cover the following Cramahe-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.

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: The Different Types of Assessments
Students take many different assessments during the school year, and they are often used for very different purposes. When a teacher chooses to give a test early on in the year, the purpose of the test may be to provide a summary of what the students know and will help a teacher determine where to place their instructional resources. An end-of-year exam is designed to measure student proficiency in the content that was taught. Along the way, project-based assessments are a big part of the learning process and give students a chance to show both what they know and what they can do. Other sorts of demonstration-based assessments include oral presentations, published writing and authentic assessments.
