Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grimsby District Curriculum
Core subjects of English, Math, Science, History, and International Languages provide the essential framework for learning. Each area has developed programs beyond the standard courses to promote student achievement in the areas of their interest. There are programs in Media and Communication emerging from the English curriculum. Math and Science educational opportunities in technology, engineering, and environmental science have all been developed. Language Immersion and International Education supports the intercultural learning that students may seek as a cornerstone of their education.
All the subjects also promote the development of critical thinking skills that are required for post-secondary success. Students learn how to analyze and evaluate information, conduct research, test hypotheses, and solve all sorts of mathematic and scientific problems. These skills are built over the years, through a step-by-step process laid out in the subject-area frameworks.

Grimsby District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used to guide and organize the instructional process in the local schools. It uses grade level expectations of the skills and knowledge that students should develop to ensure that all students are receiving a thorough foundation in their core learning. The expectations build upon each other over the years so that students begin with fundamentals and develop the ability to do analytic work in all subjects. Students are further engaged through unique programming that allows students to explore their individual areas of interest. The school districts are also committed to preparing students for the future by designing educational programming that facilitates college and career readiness.

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: What Is Differentiated Instruction?
Differentiated Instruction is an approach teachers use in the classroom to support student learning. It is one of many approaches that can be used, and it is primarily employed for group work. Differentiated instruction means grouping students in certain ways to effect certain outcomes. For instance, a teacher may place students of the same abilities in a group so that they are able to process through the same information towards subject comprehension. Or, a teacher may group students with varied abilities so that students may learn from others while working on a project.
