Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orangeville District Curriculum
The schools in Orangeville use the Ontario Curriculum as the framework for teaching and learning across the subject areas. The curriculum framework describes the basic knowledge that students develop within their subjects at each grade. These expected outcomes prepare students for the next steps in their education. Literacy goals are essential in each subject area and students are taught how to read and analyze texts differently depending on whether they are fiction or informational texts.
The Ontario Curriculum goes beyond describing the basic skills and knowledge and also ties those skills to the higher level thinking that develops in tandem with the basic learning. For example, when a student learns the basic of the scientific process they also develop process-oriented thinking, or when a student learns way to revise their writing they are developing self-reflective thinking. It is the combination of basic and advanced skills that thoroughly prepare students for their future pursuits.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Orangeville students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Orangeville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used to guide the learning objectives that students are expected to meet in their courses as well as the scope and sequence for learning. The curriculum focuses on the fundamental concepts that motivate teaching that students need to understand with the foundational skills they learn as well as develop learning and comprehension strategies. Each content area will have a set of core competencies and Aboriginal content—important learning for students in all of Canada—will continue to be embedded. This model establishes standards for learning at each grade-level and each subject emphasizes key critical thinking skills which students should develop.

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: Behaviorism and Reinforcement
One way teachers can use positive reinforcement is to reward good behavior with tangible rewards, such as homework passes, stickers, candy, etc. It is important that rewards be used sparingly because if they are overused, students’ motivation will be misdirected—they will be motivated to behave and perform certain ways in order to receive a tangible reward, not because they are intrinsically motivated. Meanwhile, negative reinforcement can help strengthen desired behaviors by removing negative stimuli. For example, when a student completes his/her homework (the wanted behavior), the teacher removes the bad grade (the negative stimulus). It is important to note that negative reinforcement is very different from punishment. While the goal of negative reinforcement is to increase a positive behavior by removing something negative, punishment involves decreasing a negative behavior by applying a negative consequence.
