Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Bruce District Curriculum
The Ontario Curriculum which is used in the districts is an extensive series of documents that details the goals for learning in each subject and the elementary and secondary programs which have been developed for all students in the province. The Student Success Program developed by the Ministry of Education is an example of how the curriculum is extended to serve the goals of career preparation that coincides with core academic goals.
The measurement tool for the curriculum are the assessments students take, both formally and informally. Assessments can be valuable teaching tools as they give teachers the chance to assign projects and portfolio-based authentic assessments. They can also provide useful information when given in a standardized format and teachers can see where their class needs more instruction and which areas are sources of achievement. The curriculum design is subject-specific so the addition of new subjects is a source of on-going review.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.

South Bruce District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The core academic and enrichment subjects detailed in the Ontario Curriculum all help students develop learning strategies, ways of understanding the world and themselves, and the means to develop and communicate ideas. Math and Science provide the foundation for seeking solutions, weighing evidence, and validating conclusions which are processes used throughout life. English teaches students the fundamentals of language, reading, and oral and written communication. Students learn how to understand and evaluate information and the cultural value of literary works. They also learn the ways in which to successfully communicate thoughts and ideas.

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 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: Helping Kids Get the Most Out of Leisure Time
Just like adults, children need time to relax, but there are ways to make this time into learning time, without taking away their fun. First of all, parents can replace the high tech devices that the child turns to with board or card games, or other activities that allow for face-to-face time. Next, parents can lead by example. When with the child give them the entire attention, parents should not text, or answer phone calls during this time. Even watching television can be a relaxing, but learning time. While watching a show, as a family, take time to talk about what was being watched. This helps to build a child’s memory and conversational skills. By thinking about the activities the parent enjoys doing when down, the child can benefit.
