Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Guelph District Curriculum
In Guelph, the public schools use the Ontario Curriculum as a framework that lays out the objectives and standards of learning in each subject area. The main core subjects all have discrete skills that a student needs to develop, and the Curriculum describes what all students should be learning. There are some assessments which are given across the province and serve to measure student proficiency in their subjects. Other assessments will be given in the classroom and enable students to work on projects individually or in groups.
To achieve the goal of developing and promoting critical thinking, the English curriculum describes what abilities a student should have in analyzing fiction and informational texts or the Math curriculum describes the skills in Algebra that a student needs to develop to reason out math problems. In science, the steps that students take to investigate scientific phenomenon are instilled. All these areas help students develop higher order and analytic thinking skills.

Guelph District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is a comprehensive framework for teaching and learning which incorporates both core academics with innovative programs in non-traditional subjects. The curriculum has overseen the development of the language immersion programs, the outdoor education programs, and the high skills majors, all of which provide students with the drive to achieve. These programs integrate both core academics with other topics of focus so that students are able to gain knowledge in all subject areas.

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 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 Children Cope with Stress
Some children may exhibit few symptoms of stress yet may be suffering. Changes in personality, physical appearance, and relationships are always strong indicators that something is wrong. If you recognize negative behaviors, talk to the child immediately. Try to encourage him or her to discuss feelings; regular conversations are best. For more reluctant kids, providing access to movies, shows, or literature about dealing with difficult issues may be beneficial. For dangerous problems, it may be necessary to find help. Contact a pediatrician and/or mental health professional for more guidance. Whether exhibiting minor or major behavioral issues, all children deserve support to maintain their wellbeing.
