Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Colborne District Curriculum
The subjects of Math, Science, and Technology are of increasing focus in the schools. Areas such as Engineering and the Environment are also topics in Science which students will have the chance to study. These courses help students develop the process-oriented, problem-solving skills necessary for post-secondary work and learning. Students will find that many principles learnt in these subjects support their daily life and benefit their ability to reason and make sound decisions.
The subject of English is taught in such a way that student learning aids in their abilities in all classes. Literacy in math, science, history, and subjects of personal interest is sought and students are expected to develop reading strategies which they can apply to different text styles. Additionally, writing is focused on and students learn skills to develop written work in styles such as expository, narrative, and persuasive.

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.
