Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Milton District Curriculum
In English, students learn about reading, writing, language usage and other communication skills. Students learn how to use correct punctuation, including how to utilize certain punctuation to bring excitement to their writing. Young writers learn how to avoid inappropriate shifts in verb tense, as well as changes in pronoun number and person. Gerunds, participles, and infinitives are also studied, as are various forms of verbs, including imperatives, interrogatives, and subjunctives.
In Math, students build a foundation in numerical operations, shape recognition and measurement, algebraic patterning, and calculating probabilities. Later in middle school and in high school, geometric equations are a main component of the curriculum as well. Geometric constructions are made, 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.

Milton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the public schools of Milton was developed by the province’s Ministry of Education. The curriculum is a framework that organizes the subject into measurable learning outcomes for each subject at all grade levels. It describes what a student should be able to do to have attained proficiency in the subject. The curriculum is used by instructors to plan the objectives for their lessons; it organizes each academic subject around both the skills and knowledge requisite to the subject and also the higher order thinking and conceptual foundations related to the subject matter. This allows for both breadth and depth in the teaching of the subject while making sure that students across the province reach the same high standards of learning.

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.
