Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Petrolia District Curriculum
Each subject teaches students certain means of understanding information which is essential to their success in future academic and professional pursuits. The ability to analyze is developed in Math and English, the ability to recognize universal principles and patterns is grounded in History and Science. Students develop their reasoning and problem-solving skills, means to evaluate information, and the language base to express their thoughts.
The intended outcomes for students is to have developed strong literacy, communication, and problem-solving skills which they may apply to any learning challenge. The opportunities that are developing in a continually changing, technologically advanced global workplace support students' decisions to focus on studies that establish their place in the future.To that end, the Ontario Curriculum has established programs in the schools such as the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program, High Skills Specialist Majors, and International Baccalaureate.

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 help teachers understand the different ways in which students think. Mathematical-logical students will excel at most mathematical tasks, but these students can be given opportunities to solve problems in various content areas. To satisfy both intrapersonal and interpersonal learners, students should be given opportunities to work both independently and in groups; sometimes, they should be given a choice as well. Examples of the former include self-reflecting and writing in journals, while examples of the latter may be putting on a skit and partaking in a debate. Teachers should use learning centers and give students choices when it comes to how they display their learning in order to cater to students’ preferred learning styles.
