Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gloucester District Curriculum
The Science curriculum builds knowledge through both the facts and scientific principles as well as the scientific processes that students are taught. In the Social Sciences, students learn about the connectedness between physical and human regions, such as cities and rivers, are analyzed as well. Students identify the various ways that civilizations depend on local geographic features for survival, as well as the ways in which the local environmental factors impede human progress and mobility.
In Math, the fundamentals of problem-solving enable students towards mathematical modeling, abstract reasoning, being able to determine what types of computational tools to use, and the ability to solve a problem with the most effective methods. In English, literacy skills enable students to be able to interpret and evaluate texts which are both fiction and non-fiction. Through these learning paths, students build the full complement of critical thinking skills which will prepare them for their post-secondary and career opportunities.

Gloucester District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Gloucester use the Ontario Curriculum for all academic subjects by laying out the steps that students will take to develop subject-area knowledge within each subject. The frameworks are subject-specific and explain the grade level expectations that will build toward an in-depth understanding of the subject. Core academics like English, Math, Science, and History all begin with fundamental knowledge and branch out into topic-specific studies that allow for greater exploration, inquiry and analysis.

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.

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.
