Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Saugeen Shores District Curriculum
In Math, students learn fundamentals of mathematics across the different topics so that when they enter high school they are prepared for the Principles and Foundations of Math courses offered in grade 9. These classes go in-depth with Algebra and Geometry, and students learn about linear equations, algebraic expressions, geometric functions, and how they relate. Students can choose between an Academic or Applied version of this course, the difference being in the amount of theory and practical application brought in to instruction.
In English, the goal is to foster understanding and communication through texts that open up the world and personal expression that helps students find their voice. Students are meant to learn about the language, how to make connections between content, think critically and be able to recognize different points of view. Student achievement is gauged by their ability to demonstrate knowledge, critical thinking, meaningful connections, and application of knowledge. As they choose areas of specialization, their knowledge base will be drawn upon.

Saugeen Shores District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In order for students to have an education that provides them with the necessary background of content and concept knowledge and a range of higher-order thinking skills, and relevant experiences in which to apply these, the Ontario Curriculum was developed. The curriculum consists of a series of subject-specific documents that detail grade level expectations and the anticipated outcomes for student knowledge. These are the subjects that Ontario bases their standardized tests on which are a requirement of graduation from secondary school. The broad literacy and learning strategies developed in the foundational subjects help students with all learning in the humanities, math and sciences, and social sciences.

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: How to Connect with Teens
At times, parents and teens just cannot connect. There are some simple ways to make this easier. Parents can show an interest in things the teen loves. Perhaps they enjoy sports, or animals. Whatever their interest is, find out about it and then jump in. This will help to open the door to conversations. Spend some time doing something together with the teen. This may mean teaching them to make their favorite treats or renting a moving. Just by being together will help bring the teen out of their shell. Finally, when asking them questions, make sure to be specific. General questions can often be answered by a shrug of the shoulders. By asking what they did in English class, or how the team is preparing for the season, will help open up the teen’s world to the parent.
