Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamilton Township District Curriculum
In Math,students learn how to use numbers in operations and equations, become able to manipulate shapes and spatial planes, and understand quantitative data in graphs or charts. In Science, students learn the processes of investigating scientific principles through lab experiences and they build general scientific content knowledge. Within these two subjects, students develop process-oriented problem solving skills and the ability to reason abstractly and logically.
In English, the curriculum aims to teach broad literacy skills that students can use to develop their literacy abilities in other subjects as well. A range of non-fiction is read and students are expected to develop cultural and world knowledge through their reading. Writing is also a critical component of the English curriculum and students are expected to produce written work in expository, reflective and persuasive type formats. Broad abilities of literary analysis, evaluation of point of view, and personal expression are developed within this subject.

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.

Chalk Talk: What Is the Role of Advisory Committees?
For parents who are interested in participating in the schools, the Advisory Committees are a practical, relevant and useful way to contribute time. The schools have a number of committees that oversee different areas of educational policy. There is a Special Education Advisory Committee which helps develop the strategic goals and opportunities available for Special Education Services. There is an Aboriginal Education Advisory Committee which helps develop the ways in which Aboriginal Education will be brought into the curriculum. Some committees focus on the school facilities, and some on curricular priorities. Often the meetings are held in the evenings, which is well-suited for working parents.
