Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield District Curriculum
Core academics are taught on a K-12 progression, drawing out concept knowledge and critical thinking skills over the years. The English curriculum has an objective of helping students attain critical thinking skills like analysis, interpretation, and a range of communication skills. This is accomplished through reading various texts across subject areas, opportunities to respond through analytical writing, and discussions and modeled strategies for decoding meaning and points of view.
In Math, students build problem-solving skills from their introduction to numerical operations, measurement, and other basic topics during elementary school. Students amass a background in mathematic knowledge with which they can perform abstract and logical reasoning. The Science curriculum helps students develop their means of understanding the world. Students learn about natural phenomenon and scientific laws, and are also introduced to the process of forming and testing hypotheses and validating theories.

Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used in the local schools and provides an extensive overview of what students are expected to learn in their subjects each year. This framework, which is referred to as standards-based, also allows for the development of innovative programs which are designed to thoroughly prepare students to meet their post-secondary goals. The curriculum also calls upon students to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities through assessments of all types. Beyond the EQAO assessments, there are also project-based assessments that teachers use in all subjects to give students an opportunity to apply what they have learned in their courses to their own original scholarship.
We currently cover the following Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.

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.

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: What Is Integrated Learning?
Integrated learning is when more than one subject is used to teach a lesson or concept. Using art and history together to help students understand people and their society at a certain point in history can enliven history for many students. Science and history is another area where integrated learning commonly occurs because of the ways in which science has transformed our society. More advanced subjects, such as AP Math and AP Government may integrate subject areas to study the census, using both a mathematic approach to the statistics and a government approach to the data. Integrated learning can be very effective in making subjects relevant and comprehensible for students.
