Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sarnia District Curriculum
In Math classes, students study mathematical concepts, like algebra and geometry, to understand how and why the math works. They learn complex formulas and gain a firm understanding of mathematics which they can build upon later. They learn how to analyze quantitative data and use it to make models that will help them find answers to other questions. When students graduate, they will take these strong habits, good work ethic, and solid knowledge base with them and achieve success in life.
In English classes, students read complex, challenging texts that make them think about their own preconceptions and the preconceptions of the authors. They learn how to analyze both fiction and non-fiction. Students form opinions and use evidence gathered from the texts and other materials to support those opinions with well-reasoned arguments. They learn how to write analytically and use the proper conventions in their writing. Vocabulary acquisition is also emphasized as are verbal communication and presentation skills.

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: Fun Family Fitness Activities
No matter what the age, children enjoy activities with their families and parents like to have time, away from technology, with their children. Family can enjoy active times together easily and inexpensively. One such activity is pulling out Hula Hoops and have fun. This simple activity can burn calories while the family has fun trying different techniques. Using roller skates or blades can also be a fun way to spend some active family time. Take the equipment to a park and go. Make sure to include pads when preparing for this. Finally, if the family has a dog, try taking a family walk, or hike, with the puppy. This opens up the door for conversation while enjoying the surroundings.
