Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Otonabee-South Monaghan District Curriculum
The English curriculum covers language, reading, writing, speaking and listening, conducting research, and media studies. From the building blocks of phonics on through the ability to research topics and write informative, well-supported research reports, literacy and communication skills are thoroughly developed. This subject focuses in on literature and how to appreciate and analyze it, but also teaches texts of non-fiction so that students are literate across the curriculum.
In Math, students develop their abilities in numeracy, operations, measurement, geometry, and data analysis during their elementary and middle school years. The skills become more complex each year and students are able to do advanced work in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics and pre-Calculus in high school. In Science, the learning framework develops content knowledge in earth and life science, the environment, and physical science in a model that advances in complexity.

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 Long ‘I’ Sound
The long ‘I’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Students can distinguish this from the short ‘I’ by learning that the long ‘I’ sounds exactly like how they would say the name of the letter ‘I’ (“eye”). Words such as bike, kite, and snipe contain this sound. As is evident from these examples, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end with an ‘E’ usually make a long ‘I’ sound; there are some exceptions, however, such as give. This is in contrast to how words with a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern generally contain a short ‘I.’ In words that have an “igh”—as in high and bright—the ‘I’ is pronounced as a long sound, while the “gh” remains silent. There are many words in which a ‘Y’ appears at the end—shy—or middle—cycle—and sounds like a long ‘I.’ Finally, “ie” sometimes sounds like a long ‘I’; examples include pie and lie. When words that end in ‘Y,’ such as cry and fry, are pluralized or made into the past tense, the ‘Y’ is replaced with an “ie” (cries and fried) and always has a long ‘I’ sound.
