Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Goderich District Curriculum
The options at the secondary level are expanding and incorporating classes that prepare students for technology careers, engineering, health and medical fields, creative and performing arts, and globally-oriented careers. The curriculum anticipates that students will have many choices, and provides the keys to success in the fields which students are able to choose as their future pursuits.
At the secondary level, students have choices between the goal-orientation of the courses they take. All ninth graders take a foundational course in Math which teaches concepts like algebraic and linear equations, geometric functions and spatial reasoning, and ways of understanding and modeling data. Students are able to pursue this on an academic or applied track, focusing in on either the theoretical foundation or the practical applications, respectively. The same is true for Science, and in ninth grade students are introduced to topics like biodiversity, chemistry, and laws of physics in one of these modes.

Goderich District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The development of abilities begins in each subject with fundamentals such as phonics and word meanings in English, or key facts and figures in History. Math and Science offer students a great amount of content knowledge and opportunities to investigate during the elementary years. Once students enter high school, the secondary curriculum provides a detailed overview of the types of concepts and principles in which students are expected to achieve proficiency. The courses in high school are more rigorously focused within the topics of algebra, geometry, data analysis, pre-Calculus.

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: Financial Literacy Learning
As part of the financial literacy curriculum, studentslearn to analyze and communicate about financial issues. Students investigate various careers, identifying their income potential, the educational requirements to enter the career, and the skills needed to find success in that career. Learners explore various aspects of earning an income, including paying taxes, making contributions to retirement and investment plans, and the difference between gross and net incomes. Consumerism is studied as well. Students learn about protections that are in place to protect consumers from fraud. Students additionally learn how purchases they make can include many indirect costs, including sales tax, shipping and handling fees, and the opportunity costs of spending time shopping instead of working. Learners explore debt as well, and identify ways to avoid becoming burdened with debt by managing credit effectively.
