Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minto District Curriculum
In English, the literacy skills which students gain are meant to bring about analytic, interpretative and evaluative thinking. In History, conceptual understandings about change and continuity, social movements, governance and institutions are raised through the study of historical periods. Both subjects have technology integrated into learning through its use for researching and creating student work.
In Science, the scientific content is interlaced with opportunities to investigate phenomenon and principles thereby developing the means for process-oriented, scientific thinking. In Math, students learn how to solve numerical, algebraic and geometrical problems and gain the basis with which they can reason abstractly and logically. Each of these areas of critical thought help students master advanced learning and real-world pursuits in their future.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Minto students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Minto District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools use a standards-based curriculum that builds student knowledge from an elementary foundation toward the ability to perform more complex work within each subject. The framework is built around grade-level expectations, which represent the skills and knowledge students must develop in order to be prepared for their next year. Within the subjects, the curriculum goes beyond the basic skills and content of subjects and also specifies the types of critical thinking which will emerge through the coursework of a subject.

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: The Role of Arts Education
The visual and performing arts are a part of the curriculum in all grades, and has been a mainstay of enrichment education. The goal of arts education is to promote creativity, out of the box thinking, aesthetic appreciation, recognition of craft, and understanding of the role of art within our lives. Even for students who do not consider themselves artistic, the opportunities to play around with paint, clay and other media can provide an appreciable diversion from a rigorous academic routine. For many students, art classes allow talents to emerge and be nurtured, ensuring us the next generation of artists.
