Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pembroke District Curriculum
The curriculum that is used in Pembroke was developed at the provincial level to provide a framework for the academic subjects so that all students are being taught to equal standards of learning. The Ontario Curriculum organizes the subjects into the various skills and knowledge components that bring about proficiency in the subject. The subjects also support the development of critical thinking and conceptual understanding. Core academics is a central feature of the educational experience.
The literacy standards involve students being able to read different genres and write several forms of text, using comprehension and writing strategies that demonstrate appropriate or strong achievement. The different areas of students’ writing - content, organization, word choice, voice, sentence structure, and conventions - reflect appropriate or strong achievement. Students who display strong achievement are at a more advanced level which ensures they are prepared for college level reading and writing expectations.

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.

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: Multiple Intelligences
The theory of Multiple Intelligences was developed by Howard Gardner to address the different areas in which people are intelligent. Students may excel at a mixture of domains. The main implication for multiple intelligences is that teachers cannot use a “one size fits all” approach and must find ways to differentiate instruction to meet the diverse learning needs of each student. Intelligence areas include verbal, spatial, visual, kinesthetic, musical, among others. Ideas for visual-kinesthetic learners are having students complete hands-on science experiments, performing a dance to learn body parts in a foreign language, and building 3-D models. Although building a 3-D model sounds like it is mostly related to the sciences, this is not necessarily the case; for example, students can build a 3-D diorama to display an important scene from a book as part of a book report.
