Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gananoque District Curriculum
The role of the core subjects is to teach students skills, thinking and comprehension strategies, concepts, and ways of applying new knowledge. The Math curriculum promotes reasoning, representational, and proportional models of thinking along with the operational and functional skills students learn. In Science, the processes of inquiry, theory formation, and trial and error are among the thinking skills developed.
In the subject of English, students are provided the fundamental language skills needed to decode meaning in texts and to construct meaning in their own writing. Students are expected to develop cultural awareness and the ability to recognize diverse points of view. Both fiction and non-fiction are used throughout the elementary and secondary years so that students become literate in all subjects. They also learn about the craft of literature and are able to apply these lessons to develop their own written work.

Gananoque District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students have a range of learning experiences offered to them during their elementary and secondary years that have been designed to support their many talents, goals, and which arise from changes in the nature of the workplace. The experiential learning that students participate in the core academic subjects of English, Math, Science, History and Geography, and International Languages helps them develop the problem-solving, investigation, and communication skills they will need to pursue their goals. During their secondary years, programs in the arts, technology, sciences and engineering, and global studies are available and have well developed learning expectations that will prepare students for college or career upon graduation.

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: The Importance of Academic Honesty
When conducting research, students must learn how to manage their resources. First, put any copied work in quotes immediately. This step will help you identify whether the thought is someone else’s or your own. It’s okay to rephrase or summarize, but still make sure you’re giving the author credit for his or her work. Fourth, enter phrases from your work into a search engine; does your statement mysteriously pop up in any one else’s work? If so, you probably copied their work too closely. Re-word or use quotation marks, and always make sure to give credit. Last, try to explain what you learned aloud to someone. If you’re having a difficult time relaying your message, you haven’t done enough of your own work, and you haven’t done your job as a student.
