Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Niagara-on-the-Lake District Curriculum
In Math, student learning centers on the topics of numeracy, geometry and measurement, quantitative data analysis, and algebraic operations. Understanding of these topics is developed during the elementary and intermediate years, and in secondary school students will start with a foundational course covering concept knowledge in geometry, algebra, and data analysis which prepares them for more advanced Math.
In English, students begin with fundamentals of phonics, language development, reading and decoding strategies, listening and speaking exercises, and significant opportunities to write. This foundation establishes the basis for the analytic, interpretative and representational work that students will do in their secondary years English courses. Literacy is established so that students are strong readers across the curricular areas, and supports learning in all subjects.

Niagara-on-the-Lake District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Niagara-on-the-Lake use the Ontario Curriculum as the plan for instruction and assessment in all core subjects. This curriculum provides a grade level overview during the elementary and secondary years for what students are expected to learn in their courses. The curriculum also specifies the concepts which are covered within the subjects and these foster the critical, reasoning and problem-solving skills that students are also expected to gain. These expectations, or learning objectives, are used as the basis for assessments given by the EQAO to measure student proficiency in achieving the standards.

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: What Is the Difference Between Academic and Applied Math?
When students enter secondary school, they have a choice to take Grade 9 Foundations of Math in the Academic or the Applied format. Both course formats follow the same curricular expectations, the primary difference is in the instructional purpose of each course. The Academic courses focus in on theoretical aspects of the math concepts and the Applied format focuses in on the practical applications of the same concepts. The goal in having two versions is to offer options to fit the ways in which students process learning and information differently.
