Educating Our Parents: Understanding the King District Curriculum
In English, the early years focus on basic literacy and communication skills so that students have the means to express their complex thoughts in their later school years. Writing is one of the major strands in the English curriculum and students learn to draft, write, revise, and edit their writing so that they are producing clear and meaningful texts of their own. Critical and creative thinking is developed through the different opportunities for literary or textual response in the classroom environment. This gradual compounding of knowledge is effective in laying a foundation that students can rely on.
The curriculum was set up so that during elementary school students are gaining the foundation of knowledge which will prepare them for advanced work in secondary school. Students develop problem-solving skills in all areas of Math and Science during elementary school, and then in secondary school begin to take an in-depth approach to topics like Biology, Physics and Chemistry and Geometry, Algebra and Data Analysis.

King District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local districts use the learning model put forth in the Ontario Curriculum to guide instructional planning, classroom teaching, and assessments that measure students’ proficiency in core academic subjects. The curriculum organizes the delivery of knowledge in each subject, establishing objectives for learning that students must meet. These objectives are the basis for end-of-year assessments; they show what students have learned, areas in which students excel, and areas in which there needs to be more instruction. Buildings are staffed with caring, responsible, and highly trained teachers who devise learning experiences that are engaging and challenging. Students acquire various skills needed for success, and attain knowledge that will help them become ready for college or career.

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: How Will a Tutor Benefit My Child?
Tutoring is a beneficial process for all students. The role of a tutor is not designed for students who are in danger of failing or for students who are getting straight A's; a tutor is beneficial for all students. The instructional relationship is individualized so that a student receives the type of attention which allows for an education professional to understand how that student learns and provide them with strategies that support and enrich their abilities. The tutor works with each student until content and concepts are mastered and the student is ready for the next step in their education.
