Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oakville District Curriculum
In elementary science, the scientific method is tied in to a variety of scientific activities. Simple pattern recognition and the development of scientific questions are approached with hands-on methods. Science communication skills are also promoted. In upper grades, and the basic frameworks of matter and energy, earth science, ecological interactions, and organism morphology are expanded upon with courses such as chemistry, biology, anatomy, and physics.
English Language Arts curricula begin in early grades with basic word recognition and strong vocabulary skills. Reading and writing skills are reinforced with regular practice, and student interest is promoted through the use of imaginative and creative writing. Evidence-based argumentation and thesis construction is continuously bolstered in high school grades, allowing students to develop the skills they need to create cogent and clearly written papers. Creative writing is again explored and enhanced through elective topics, including journalism.

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: Dinosaurs: Feathered or Unfeathered?
Since the 19th century, the connection between birds and dinosaurs has been recognized. Such an example includes the late 19th century British anatomist Thomas Huxley, who dissected his chicken dinner and marveled to find that the structure of the avian wishbone greatly resembled the furcula, or wishbone, of a small carnivorous dinosaur he had been studying. The earliest bird, Archaeopteryx, is in fact considered to be a dinosaur because of its skeletal features. However, in spite of the vocal scientific support of Huxley and others, as the 20th century dawned many paleontologists considered birds to be descended from another group of reptiles called thecodonts. These reptiles, not closely related to dinosaurs, share some basic skeletal characteristics with birds. It was not until the 1960s and 1970s when a “dinosaur renaissance” occurred, with the discovery of fossils such as the “raptor” dinosaur Deinonychus and other bird-like carnivores, and the image of slow, dim-witted dinosaurs began to fall by the wayside.
