Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rideau Lakes District Curriculum
At all levels of school - elementary, middle, and secondary - programs are available which are responsive to students' diverse needs and talents. The curriculum is designed to be accessible to students with learning disabilities and programs have been established that offer students the extra support or instruction that they may require. There are also programs that provide students with opportunities to focus on areas like the Fine Arts in an integrated approach with core academics.
The outcomes anticipated by the curriculum are that students are prepared for their future college and career goals with a solid academic foundation and the ability to make decisions about the course for their personal pursuits. This student-centered approach combines rigorous core academic requirements with opportunities for educational choice in innovative programs and many self-directed learning experiences.

Rideau Lakes District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Rideau Lakes use the Ontario Curriculum as a framework, or guideline, for the instructional process within all subjects. The curriculum details yearly expectations for subject-area learning, the types of concepts and thinking strategies that students are expected to develop, and the goals for what students will be able to do upon completion of their coursework. The frameworks are aligned to the provincial assessments given each year. This is organized subject-by-subject in a collaborative process between educators and professionals who want to create curricular standards that support students’ transition into the career force.

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: Recommendations: The Basics
Most colleges require from one to three recommendations, but most students won’t need more than two. Recommendations are required to have been written by teachers the student had junior or senior year. If the teacher had some other interaction with the student, as a coach or advisor, for example, then that’s even better because it means the teacher has more insight into the student, but the recommender must have taught the student in a classroom setting junior or senior year, and really, it needs to have been a core academic class. Students can’t see their recommendations; in fact, they sign a form saying that they haven’t seen the recommendation.
