Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Essex District Curriculum
The learning which students do in Math, Science, English, History, Cultural and Language Studies provide students with a base in learning strategies, thinking skills, and problem-solving abilities that prepare them for future learning and career opportunities. In English, students develop communication and analytic skills which they are able to apply to course readings and discussions. In Math and Science, the problem-solving methods that require precision help students develop abilities in the field of technology.
History, Cultural and Language Studies provide students with a global perspective that broadens their horizons and helps develop conceptual understandings about culture, people, societies and their institutions. Students also have opportunities to pursue interdisciplinary studies in high school which allow them to draw together a course of study that combines their interests and provides an opportunity to exhibit initiative and project planning skills.

Essex District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Essex align their teaching with the goals laid out in the Ontario Curriculum, which covers all core academic subjects and provides for the additional enrichment programs for elementary and secondary schools. There is also a Catholic Curriculum which is followed in the Windsor-Essex Catholic District, and both districts use curriculum provided by programs like Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate. Independent and collaborative learning experiences help children develop their academic, social, and emotional skills, while also affording them the opportunity to improve their communication skills and abilities to work well with others.
Keeping Informed: Recent Essex Educational News
- Community Involvement - Students in the Windsor-Essex Catholic District are required to perform 40 hours of community service as a requirement of graduation. Within these service projects, students may pursue a range of different avenues for the services they provide. They could be local to the school or reach out in the wider Essex community. They could be solitary efforts or community-wide initiatives worked on by a group of students.
- Art Programs - At Essex District High School students have a number of course options that provide student artists with a number of opportunities. Students can also connect to additional resources for making art, other artists to collaborate on projects with, and chances to exhibit works and participate in community-wide art initiatives.
- Transition to High School - Students in the middle schools in Essex are provided with resources by Essex District High School to understand what to expect as they transition from middle school to high school. The school provides descriptions of the high school climate, course and program offerings. This is useful for students and families who are planning for the transition and want to understand how to select the best classes to support the student’s goals and the registration process.

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.

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: Tips for Picking the Right College
Choosing a college to attend is a major decision that can cause your child a good deal of grief. However, there are several ways that you can help your child in making their final decision. First, have your child create a short-list of schools, identifying the pros and cons of each. Sometimes, just being able to visually compare each school is enough to eliminate some or promote others to the top of the list. Second, encourage your child to talk to representatives from their top schools, particularly students and professors in their area of interest. This is usually a component of campus tours, but having follow up discussions with people in the know can help narrow down the list of possibilities. Lastly, help your child investigate the job connections available at each school. The whole point of a college degree is to get a good job afterward, so a school’s ability to help a student transition into the world of work could very well make the difference between enrolling in that school or taking it off the list of possibilities.
