Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Petawawa District Curriculum
In Science, students start out with an experiential learning program bringing in topics of life, earth, and physical science. Students will be taught about and experiment with concepts of matter, structure, and mechanisms and learn fundamental scientific facts and principles. When they enter high school, the foundation broadens so that students learn about concepts in biology, earth and space science, chemistry and physics with emphasis on how these concepts relate to everyday life.
The English curriculum has been designed so that elementary students develop basic literacy skills in phonics and whole language understanding. The strands of reading, writing, communicating and media studies is a part of the K-12 continuum of learning and students move from basic acts of understanding to more complex acts of analysis and interpretations. With this, students are able to analyze and create texts using the skills developed.

Petawawa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Student learning has been planned, according to the Ontario Curriculum, so that knowledge grows out of a base of fundamentals followed by the chance to study topics in-depth. The curriculum details the plan for elementary and secondary students in each academic subject and within the elective programs available. Each subject framework describes the expected learning outcomes for each grade level and the broader functional thinking skills that students develop. The curriculum also strikes a balance between students receiving the instruction they need and being able to work at a self-paced level.

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.

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: Curriculum & Assessment
Developing a common assessment involves determining its purpose (diagnostic, formative, or summative), aligning it with the Essential Outcomes identified within the curricular unit (including matching its rigor and format with that of the outcome), identifying what mastery of the outcome looks like, and coming up with a method to track students’ progress against the outcome. The prerequisite skills or knowledge necessary for students to master the essential outcome, and enrichment (how students will extend their learning to greater levels of complexity). General outcome expectations reflect on the standards, for example asking a Language Arts student to demonstrate using strategies and cues, responding to texts, understanding forms and elements, and creating original texts. With a curriculum designed to build on prior year's skills, it is important that all teachers are providing the same preparation to students so as they move into different classes or schools, the growth is uninterrupted.
