Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Meaford District Curriculum
English has been designed so that students get the fundamentals of reading and many opportunities to read so that they may develop their analytic and evaluative thinking. Once students are in secondary school, analytic reading strategies are essential and students are expected to demonstrate that ability in written tasks. The English classes have been designed to introduce a significant amount of non-fiction in other subjects so that student learning in all curricular areas is well supported.
In Science, students early learning allows for a good deal of investigatory learning and the development of basic content knowledge. In secondary school, with a foundation course in concepts in biology, chemistry, and physics where students get into topics like biodiversity, chemical reactions, and forces of motion. Following that, students have the chance to take these as full-year courses allowing greater amount of lab work in each field.

Meaford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum has been designed to fit the learning requirements of elementary and secondary students so that they are thoroughly prepared with academic knowledge and have opportunities to explore enrichment, non-traditional, or emerging subjects. Beyond that, students may enrich their learning through language immersion programs, integrated arts programs, and technology. In Math, the elementary years is when students develop a range of strategies for understanding the different topics of math. In secondary school, students take classes in Algebra and cover topics such as relationships and equations, or Geometry in which geometric functions, principles of design, and spatial analysis are taught.

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: “Noun Dunk”: An Educational Game
The online game “Noun Dunk” is a fun parts-of-speech identification game created by Harcourt Schools Publishers, a popular textbook company. For each word that appears on the basketball, students are to select if it is a common noun, proper noun, or not a noun at all. If the student selects the correct choice on the first try, he/she receives a three-point dunk. If he/she misses on the first attempt but guesses correctly the second time, he/she receives two points. One point is awarded if the correct selection is made on the third and final attempt. Although this game focuses on nouns, if students have learned other parts-of-speech as well, they can identify which part-of-speech the “not a noun” words are.
