Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lively District Curriculum
Each subject aids in the development of critical thinking skills which are necessary for college and career. The core courses all have ways of thinking which are promoted through their study. In Math, student learning brings about logical and proportional reasoning and methods of analysis. In Science, students develop their process of inquiry and learn to seek data to prove theories. English and other humanities provide the background for interpretative and reflective thinking as well as verbal reasoning.
The curriculum also provides for course options designed to move students toward their fields of study in college or their interests in career pursuits. At the high school level, one such program is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program which has been designed to give students a global understanding of the world and honed analytic skills developed through rigorous academics and project-based learning experiences.

Lively District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local districts use the Ontario Curriculum as the roadmap to student achievement. The curriculum lays out the plan by which students will become proficient in the academic subjects by providing clear expectations for learning at each stage of a student’s education. The curriculum also explains the broader rationales in subject area teaching such as the concepts and learning skills students are expected to master within their courses. During all levels of school, students will be able to join enrichment programs that integrate subjects, offer project and inquiry-based learning opportunities, and give students a chance to connect knowledge.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Pop Quizzes
Pop quizzes are known to terrify students, but are not given too frequently these days. Pop quizzes are "surprise" quizzes given on content recently learned in class. It is not generally recommended that teachers give their students assessments that students did not prepare for. A teacher may want to give out pop quizzes when it obvious that most students are not completing nightly readings. Sometimes, students will wait until a test is on the horizon and read all of the material at once, but this is not beneficial for them. Therefore, throwing in an occasional pop quiz on a night's reading may motivate students to do their readings every night. However, this tactic should not be used alone; students need to be intrinsically motivated to complete the readings because of the learning that will occur. If a teacher plans to give a pop quiz, he/she may want to announce on Monday that a surprise quiz will be given "sometime this week" to give students a bit of a warning.
