Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Georgina District Curriculum
The Ontario Curriculum describes the types of higher order thinking skills that students develop by mastering these standards. The curriculum describes the types of skills in each subject - like developing the writing process - and how the skill will bring about thinking strategies like self-reflection and analysis. Providing a description of the concepts that students should learn in their classes helps to bring about these outcomes.
The career programs available at the secondary level help students develop skills that are in demand in the workforce, both locally and internationally. The curriculum includes an entrepreneurship component that introduces students to the roles and responsibilities of small business owners. Students learn about the scope of entrepreneurship, including the personal qualities characteristic of a successful business owner, as well as the long-term impacts that small businesses have on the nation’s economy.

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: Helping a Child Cope with Stress
Not all stress is bad. Stressful situations test our character and teach us valuable life lessons. But children today face academic pressures unprecedented to any other generation. From kindergarten to twelfth grade, students face the demands of constant high-stakes testing and the importance of getting into a top-notch school. Added to this are financial burdens, family issues, and American competitiveness. Not all students will crumble under this pressure, but it is important for parents and teachers to identify students who may struggle under the weight of their stress. It is equally important for adults to help each child and embrace his or her qualities, regardless of their coping mechanisms. Signs that a child needs help are excessive weight gain or loss, substance use, excessive fear, issues with sleeping, self-harm, and academic problems.
