Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kawartha Lakes District Curriculum
The Science curriculum uses a similar model when students are introduced to in-depth topics at the beginning of high school. Students learn about biodiversity and genetics, ecosystems, and fundamentals of chemistry and physics. Following the foundational science course, students are able to take classes in Chemistry and Physics, Environmental Science, Earth and Space Science where they develop a more specialized body of knowledge.
The English curriculum is designed to support learning across curricular areas. Literacy and writing are taught so that students are proficient in communicating in science and history, for example. Non-fiction has a strong place in the curriculum alongside literature. Students are expected to develop an appreciation for literature and the cultural understanding it raises. Each subject dovetails with other content areas. When students are in high school and face a range of academic opportunities in fields that engage their curiosity, they will begin to use the various knowledge, skills, and critical thinking abilities formed in core subjects.

Kawartha Lakes District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is the broad framework used for teaching and learning in Kawartha Lakes. The curriculum provides an overview of content and concept knowledge that students will develop in their classes throughout their school years. The curriculum details the courses and programs offered beyond the core academics, and provides a clear picture of what students are expected to learn and to be able to do with the skills developed in their classes. The learning process in core subjects is designed so that students are given a broad framework during their elementary years and then during high school the courses become more focused and topics are presented for in-depth analysis. The secondary curriculum for Math uses the foundation students learned in elementary and middle school to introduce students to concepts such as linear equations and relationships in algebra and ways to analyze and model quantitative information.
We currently cover the following Kawartha Lakes-area school districts: Trillium Lakelands District School Board and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.

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: Driving to School
Once students reach the age of 16, they will likely be pleading with their parents to let them drive to school. They will argue that all their friends drive to school and that it would be uncool for them to take the school bus, but these aren't the most important things parents need to consider when deciding whether or not to allow their teen to drive to school. If a student has his/her own car, a parent may allow his/her child to drive to school if the teen has shown responsibility in his/her driving, promptness in arriving to school, and doing as well as he/she can on school work. Parents may have to rethink their decision if their teen gets into accidents or receives speeding tickets or if he/she is continually late for school. Parents should limit the number of same-age peers students can drive around, as too many teens in a car can cause distractions for the driver.
