Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Muskoka Lakes District Curriculum
In the English curriculum, the plan is set out to create literate readers across subject areas, writers who are proficient in developing a piece of clear and correct writing, and viewers of media who are able to use a critical eye to evaluate the message or content. The opportunities for students to engage in these reading and writing tasks each year build the skills necessary to become critical thinkers who are able to communicate effectively in college or post-secondary careers.
The role of technology in the schools has changed the landscape for learning significantly. Students use technology throughout the day to enhance learning, or to create products of their learning. In high school, students may have opportunities in school or through eLearning programs to take specialized courses in computer programming, technology design, 'green' technology, and next generation fields.

Muskoka Lakes District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Muskoka Lakes follow the Ontario Curriculum which is a comprehensive instructional framework for academic subjects and enrichment programs. There are additional curriculum used in the schools in programs like International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, the Catholic Curriculum, or an Integrated Arts curriculum. These all share a similar design by providing a clear overview of what students are expected to learn and be able to do within their courses. Student learning is designed as a building process from foundational knowledge to higher level conceptual knowledge. Each subject establishes processes for understanding information and how to work through projects or learning challenges.

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.
