Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Dover District Curriculum
As students enter high school, core subjects are offered in an Applied and an Academic format. These options provide either a practical or a theoretical approach to the subject, respectively. Once students have completed the foundational courses in grades 9 and 10 in either of these formats, they will be able to choose from many advanced options such as the Outdoor Education programs which offer learning experiences outside of the school.
The curriculum provides for students at all levels of learning so that students requiring remedial instruction are able to receive the additional supports they may need. There are also opportunities to accelerate coursework, take college classes in dual credit programs, and enter into specialized academies such as the International Baccalaureate Program. These opportunities emphasize that students need a strong foundation in core academics as they will be required to do a good amount of reading, writing and problem-solving in these programs.

Port Dover District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is the overarching guide for subject-area learning in Port Dover’s schools. This curriculum is standards-based, student-centered and able to expand to encompass new subjects and programs. The foundation of the curriculum are the subject-area frameworks in all academic and enrichment subjects. They provide the vision for what students will learn, what they should be able to do, and the steps by which learning will occur. Assessments are aligned to the Ontario Curriculum’s grade level expectations and serve as a measure of academic proficiency.
We currently cover the following Port Dover-area school districts: Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board, Grand Erie District School Board.

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: Teaching Children How to Self-monitor Their Reading
To help build children's confidence in reading, parents need to help children develop a type of automatic inner dialogue while reading. This can be demonstrated by asking some of these questions when the children are reading, either alone or together. Soon, the children will begin to ask themselves the questions automatically. They should ask themselves why they are reading a selection and what they expect to learn. They should also ask how is the material is organized and what they already know about it. Finally, they need to determine if they need to vary their speed by their understanding of any new material.
