Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sault Ste Marie District Curriculum
The academic standards are intended to give all students a quality, equal education. The Ontario Curriculum provides clearly defined expectations for students, and teachers are allowed the freedom to tailor their lessons to meet the needs of individual students. The standards stress critical thinking ability, analytical writing skills, science literacy, math literacy and the ability to interact meaningfully within one's community with the hope that students gain the skills and know-how necessary for success after graduation.
The curriculum used in the public schools of Sault Ste Marie is the Ontario Curriculum. This curriculum was developed at the provincial level to provide a framework for teaching and learning. Each subject area has its key knowledge laid out and the major concepts that are associated with the knowledge areas. Both the knowledge and conceptual framework that students develop bring about the thinking skills of problem-solving, reasoning, analytic and interpretative thinking, and the ability to communicate in a range of styles.

Sault Ste Marie District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
During the elementary years, student learning in Math brings about an understanding of ways to select computational tools and strategies, reflective tendencies, and the basis for abstract reasoning. In Science, students are introduced to the topics of structures and mechanisms, matter and energy, biological and physical sciences. The English language arts goals – comprehending, composing, and reflecting – also has a set of grade-specific outcomes. The curriculum allows students to choose fields they want to pursue while ensuring they have the background necessary for achievement.

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: Reading Miscues
There are many types of reading miscues, and it’s helpful to recognize and correct them gently. Many reading programs or assessments wouldn't call for a penalty in the case of a word or ending insertion. Sometimes, an insertion can involve the reader adding an ending onto a word, such as adding an -ed onto a present tense verb. This is considered a syntactic error and, because it changes the meaning of the sentence, this type of miscue should be addressed. Sometimes, a teacher may notice that a student is repeating words that come before a particularly difficult word; if this is the case, the student may be trying to give him/herself more time to decode the upcoming tricky word that.
