Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dysart District Curriculum
Math has been laid out so that students have a strong background in problem-solving before they move on to the advanced work of algebra, geometry, and data analysis in high school. In the Math classes in grade 9, students learn about algebraic expressions and relationships, geometric functions, and ways to analyze quantitative information. With these mathematic reasoning skills in place, students are prepared for other process-oriented and technical subjects.
In Science, students learn content, principles, and processes inherent to the fields of biology, earth and environment, and basic physical science. High school science begins with the study of these topics, preparing students for the focused classes in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, and Earth and Space Science. These subjects are increasingly infused with options for students to learn about technology, its uses, ways to develop it, and how to understand the nature of technology within our society.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Dysart students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Dysart District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local districts use the Ontario Curriculum, a standards-based and student-centered framework for teaching and learning. The curriculum guides for each subject set about to explain what students will learn each year and how that will progress to a strong understanding of the subject’s concepts and principles. Core subjects like English, Math, and Science are used to teach students fundamentals and to prepare them with thinking and learning strategies they will need in other subject areas. In English, students develop their abilities to read and analyze both fiction and non-fiction. They are taught how to write essays that fully develop their ideas and they are given opportunities to write for personal, reflective, and creative purposes.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Preparing for the SAT/ACT
There are different ways for students to prepare for the SAT/ACT. One way is to sign up for a test prep class. This type of preparation is best for the student that needs structure when studying. These classes generally meet every week at the same time of day. This is also good for the student that is quiet and does not like to ask questions. When in a class they can benefit from the questions and answers that come from other students. Test prep classes are also good for students that want to improve their score from previous tests. Some students may benefit from a private tutor. A tutor will give a student individual attention, as they are the only student at each session. Tutors can also design each lesson to aid the student the most. Accountability is also a plus as tutors can make sure the student stays up with their preparation. It is important that parents make sure that the tutor can offer references who can vouch for their success in preparing other students.
