Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shelburne District Curriculum
English is a subject which helps students learn how to read across the subject span and to express themselves clearly and creatively. The general appreciation of literature is one of the goals of the curriculum as is an anticipation that students will develop cultural awareness and understanding through their reading. The ability to analyze also applies to student writing, and they need to develop processes for writing that include reflective analysis of their words and ideas.
Once students are in high school, the Math courses begin with a solid groundwork in algebra and geometry and offers a chance to opt for the Academic or Applied tracks of these courses. Both tracks maintain the same standards, the difference is that in Academic courses students are taught about theoretical uses for this math while in the Applied courses students are taught about the practical uses of math. This same framework is used as students are introduced to Science and consider which courses they want to pursue during high school.

Shelburne District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum was designed to specify the learning goals at both the elementary and secondary levels encompassing the broad range of academic and enrichment subjects as well as the career-oriented learning options. The curriculum is intended to support student’s curiosity and interest in innovative topics and more subjects can be brought into the curriculum structure. Students have options to take on courses in International Language or Immersion if they are interested in enriching their linguistic background. There are opportunities for students to take many technology courses, communication and media design courses, and extend their learning into extracurricular projects.

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: Understanding Reading Level
It’s important to understand what reading level a child is at so that they can experience reading for pleasure and be able to push on to a higher level. Similarly, advanced students need to be challenged and should be given books at an appropriate level as well. Even when teachers have a class made up of students who are at a similar level, there will still be some variance. Students should be reading at their instructional level, which means that they can read a book independently with roughly 90 to 94 percent accuracy (anything below that is too difficult and anything above too easy). Teachers should work with reading specialists and librarians and utilize web-based book finders to locate books at appropriate levels for their readers.
