Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Hope District Curriculum
In Math, the curriculum lays out a progression of learning in areas like numerical operations, patterns, measurement and spatial sense, and literacy in reading quantitative data. Students become able to handle the work of algebra, geometry, statistics and other areas of advanced math as an outcome of learning in their elementary years. In Science, content is taught in life science, earth and space science, mechanisms and structures and the processes of scientific inquiry are also focused upon.
Literacy skills are strongly emphasized across the curriculum. The English curricular framework elaborates literacy development using both fiction and non-fiction, the recognition of point of view and ability to increase cultural awareness that is gained through reading. In writing, students learn mechanics and how to apply their voice to different types of writing. Throughout all subjects, both media and technology have become increasingly focused on as their use is common and the goal of the curriculum is to prepare students for academic and career pursuits.

Port Hope District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools of Port Hope use the Ontario Curriculum as the guideline for teaching and learning. This curriculum is centered on core academic subjects like English, Math and Science, and have developed frameworks that guide student learning from kindergarten through graduation. The frameworks specify the grade-level objectives for content learning, the broad critical thinking skills, and the goals for assessing student proficiency and achievement in each subject. The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test is aligned to the expectations set out in the curriculum.
We currently cover the following Port Hope-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic 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: What Areas of Study Are Suited to Independent Studies?
Many areas of academics are well-suited to become Independent Studies. The role of an Independent Study is to give students a chance to pursue an academic area that they are particularly interested in under the guidance of an educator who can provide an advisory role. Independent studies are a good way to bring together more than one subject for an interdisciplinary exploration of a topic. For instance, a student studying issues relating to a Census will draw upon politics and math, creating a piece of scholarship that is original and independently derived. The opportunity to work on an Independent Study is also valuable for the project and time management lessons which students learn working on projects.
