Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richmond Hill District Curriculum
The core academic subjects of Math, Science, History, Languages and English are all central to a students' well-rounded development. Each area helps students understand how the world works, how to solve problems and understand information, and provides the conceptual basis by which higher-levels of understanding can be attained. Students develop critical thinking skills such as reasoning, logic, interpretation, they learn about universal principles of Science, and begin to understand concepts such as government and economic systems.
In addition, the curriculum has designed programs for character education, cultural awareness, and community service. These are used to help students realize their full potential as citizens who will be responsible for community-based decisions in the future. Students have many opportunities to work on service-learning projects and community initiatives during their school years which will help them develop project planning and management skills. With this broad background, students are able to choose the areas they will pursue in post-secondary academics.

Richmond Hill District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Richmond Hill’s schools use the Ontario Curriculum which is standards-based, student-centered and comprehensive in its course and program offerings. The curriculum was designed to ensure that all students have an engaging education that provides them with a solid foundation in academic knowledge and opportunities to explore areas of enrichment. Students are able to pursue independent studies that allow them to bring subjects together like Arts and Math, or History and Science, and they may choose to join a program that specializes their education within a subject of interest. In all subject areas, critical thinking and communication are emphasized.

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 Are the Advantages of Private Tutoring?
There are a number of advantages for establishing a relationship with a private tutor. Most often, the initial reason is to support student learning in a subject or in the development of broad learning strategies and study skills. Beyond that, tutors are educational professionals who are able to support a students' best interest and connect them with resources and opportunities that would complement their interests. The individualized instruction and attention to how the student learns offers significant advantages with students confidence, achievement, and ability to develop lifelong strategies for learning.
