Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scugog District Curriculum
History, Social Studies, and World Language teach students about the global community, its patterns and changes, the institutions, political and economic systems, and world cultures. By becoming familiar with all this students become aware of the world around them and the variety of cultures surrounding them. These areas help spark inquiry-based thinking and study skills are developed through research into historical eras, cultures, or any topic that brings about interest and curiosity.
English is designed to provide students with strong literacy and communication abilities, not only in reading and speaking about literature, but within other subject areas as well. Students learn how to understand information, evaluate its merit, and communicate about their thoughts. With the foundation in place that allows students to look at learning challenges, determine methods for approaching the challenge and create original scholarship, students are prepared for the innovations in learning in their futures.

The aims of this curricular design is to prepare students for their futures with all the basic content knowledge and the higher-order thinking which is developed in different subjects.

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.

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: Signs a Child is Being Bullied
When a child is being bullied, there are certain signs for parents to watch for. Physically, parents should look out for bruises, scrapes or other injuries. They may begin to wear long-sleeves, or have headaches or stomachaches. If they come home frequently with clothing that is torn or items missing or damaged, there may be something to look into. One other thing to pay attention to is if the child waits until they come home to use the bathroom. Those at schools are quite often unsupervised. If any of these are evident, it is time for the parent to go to the administrator or the guidance counselor for advice and to see what can be done.
