Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Leamington District Curriculum
The curriculum aligns various mathematical skills to the problem-solving and reasoning skills they foster and provides similar direction within the other subjects. Geometric constructions are studied, and students learn to understand congruence specifically in terms of rigid motions. Equations and geometry are paired as well, with students learning how to use coordinates to prove theorems algebraically. By designing learning outcomes that address basic knowledge and the growth towards advanced conceptual learning students become prepared for the next steps in their education.
Beyond reading and writing, students also work on asking and answering questions, describing people, places, and events, and drawing conclusions based upon the messages received from other speakers. This is also done with reading and writing. Students focus on presenting information to others through various presentational means, such as creating a slideshow or giving a speech. Using appropriate tone, intonation, and nonverbal cues is learned as well.

Leamington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the schools of Leamington is the Ontario Curriculum. This is a curricular framework that is designed based on research into national and international best practices of setting standards and expectations. The framework covers all the academic subjects and describes what it is that students need to learn in order to thoroughly understand a subject. In addition to describing the general skills within each subject area, the curriculum describes how these skills will foster higher-level thinking skills. Students are also offered a wide range of extracurricular activities, as well as interest-based and career-oriented electives.

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: Classroom Games
Jeopardy is a widely popular TV game show and is also a very common review game that teachers use in their classrooms. It is a great game to use because it allows teachers to split up questions both into categories and difficulty level. This will motivate students, as they have some control in what kind of questions they choose to answer. Also, with some questions being worth more than others, students may be more enticed to select more challenging questions to answer. Sorting questions into categories can also give teachers and students a clearer picture as to which content students know well and what they need to examine more closely. Jeopardy is extremely versatile; it can be used for virtually any content area and topic.
