Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Perth District Curriculum
In English, the development of literacy and communication skills is critical to student learning. These broad topics are taught so that they reach across content areas and students read non-fiction alongside their literary texts. The writing portion of the curriculum emphasizes the development of clear expression, proper use of language, a range in voice and purpose, and thoughtful analysis of topics. One element of the English curriculum which has developed in past years is the Media Studies strand.
Students are offered many unique learning opportunities through programs like International Baccalaureate (IB), Outdoor Education, Fine Arts programs, Music Education, and in the skill and technology-oriented classes that are becoming increasingly available. Students are able to connect knowledge from core classes into the electives through projects and independent study.

Perth District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The instructional process in Perth’s schools is guided by the Ontario Curriculum which is a comprehensive plan consisting of clear expectations, broad learning objectives, and a combination of academic and enrichment subjects for students to explore. The curriculum is designed to provide foundational skills and knowledge during the elementary years and to deepen subject area focus during middle and secondary school. Throughout these years, students are also able to integrate subject areas that they are particularly interested in exploring into their curricular experience.

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 Theory of Constructivism
In constructivist classrooms, students are learning actively—by doing and having the opportunity to take academic risks—and are provided with authentic experiences that are relevant to their lives. A schema, or scheme, refers to the cognitive structure that helps students organize knowledge they have gained. Two important components of Piaget’s theory are assimilation and accommodation. The assimilation of knowledge requires that a student take a new idea and fit it into what he/she already knows, or the existing schema. Accommodation is more complex, however, as it is occurs when a new idea doesn't fit into a student’s existing knowledge and he/she must rework, or change, the schema. When a child first sees a tiger cub, he/she may think of it is as a cat—this is assimilating. When the child realizes that a tiger grows up to be much larger than a house cat and is orange and has stripes, he/she accommodates this information.
