Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Paradise District Curriculum
The science curriculum contains a number of learning outcomes that cover both content knowledge and the understanding of the process of scientific inquiry and discovery. The elementary curriculum focuses on content in earth and space, life, and physical science and also introduces students to scientific inquiry, problem-solving, and decision-making. By the end of middle school, students are studying topics such as water systems on earth, optics, cells, tissues, and how biologic systems function.
The elementary math curriculum provides expectations so that students become familiar with the problem-solving techniques they will use to solve problems with number systems, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. When students begin high school, they will be prepared to learn about topics such as square roots and surface area, exponent laws, rational numbers, linear relations, equations and inequalities, polynomials, and circle geometry. Students will also learn about the real-world applications of these functions.

Paradise District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District uses the curriculum guides provided by the Department of Education and Early Child Development. The guides provide the scope, sequence, and grade-level expectations for students to meet in each subject. Each subject area guide is organized around the major topics so that students are introduced to them all as they move along from elementary to secondary school. For high school students, the curriculum guides also cover Co-operative Education and Career Education, and students can also take International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement courses.
We currently cover the following Paradise-area school district: Newfoundland and Labrador English School District.

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: Choosing an Extracurricular Activity
Extracurricular opportunities are important because they were designed so that students could choose groups or activities that are meaningful to them and connect with areas they are interested in pursuing. There are a few categories of extracurricular activities, so when students choose what groups they join they want to be sure the goals of the group are in line with their goals. There are groups that participate in academic competitions and give students the chance to hone their academic skills in subjects they may pursue in college. Some groups work on community outreach and service projects, which are well-suited for students interested in working with others on important projects. Other groups focus on areas of interest like the arts, literature, and robotics are a great way for students to enjoy their interests with their peers.
