Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mapleton District Curriculum
Students are required to take many assessments during their school years, the EQAO assessments in Math and Literacy in grades 3, 6 and 9 are measures that students have met the expectations and are prepared for their next stage. Additionally, teachers will use authentic assessments that ask students to apply their knowledge and show what they are able to do. These are used as a measure of student ability, potential and learning, while also serving as an instructional opportunity.
The academic subjects of Math, Science, History, Languages and English are all required for graduation. Students are able to take secondary level courses in either an Academic or an Applied format. The difference between these options is the focus taken to teach the grade level expectations within the subject. The Academic program focuses on theoretical knowledge and understanding while the Applied program focuses on the practical uses.

Mapleton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools of Mapleton follow a standards-based curriculum which is designed to teach fundamental academics along with next generation subjects. The goal of the curriculum is to prepare students for higher education and career goals, but also to develop critical thinking and self-directed learning abilities. This is accomplished through a model that builds knowledge into a more complex comprehension within each subject. Each subject specifies the grade level expectations that students need to meet, and end-of-year assessments are based on these expectations. A host of extracurricular programs additionally facilitate students’ social, emotional, and intellectual development.

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 Can a Tutor Help My Child
A tutor can serve many roles in a students' educational development. There are times when students need help mastering content in a subject, they may not be learning effectively from the teacher, but certainly they have the ability to learn and individualized instruction may be the key. Often, students need support to develop strategies for studying and learning, and a professional educator can help with that. At times when a student has applications, and application essays, the assistance of a writing tutor can be invaluable in mastering formal writing and nailing the perfect essay.
