Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Dundas District Curriculum
The curriculum allows teachers to use any instructional approach that is appropriate to teach a topic to their class and allows for students to pursue independent studies of their own design. The outcomes which teachers look for are students' ability to understand material, demonstrate their understanding and apply their knowledge. Each subject requires that students are able to show this progress from understanding to application, ensuring that students have achieved the expectations.
The mathematics curriculum leads students to the path of becoming proficient in using number and equations. From the early years students use manipulatives to help understand counting and then simple addition and subtraction. By the middle years the students have progressed to solving equations with missing factors. By the time they graduate they will have the opportunity to master advanced algebra, trigonometry, statistics and calculus.

South Dundas District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools follow the Ontario Curriculum which is the broad plan for student learning, instructional planning, and assessing both learning and instructional proficiency. Subjects are broken down to the grade-level expectations for learning and subject knowledge is built from elementary school to high school. This process is designed so that students are given a strong base of academic knowledge from which they are able to pursue a wide range of curricular options once they are in their high school years.

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 Are Students' Learning Styles?
Essentially, there are three different learning styles: auditory, kinesthetic and visual. What this means is that most people learn in one of three ways, or by combining more than one of these styles. Auditory learners are highly capable at processing and understanding the information which they hear. Kinesthetic learners do well with processing and understanding information once they have physically interacted with it through a hands-on activity. Visual learners are strong at processing and understanding information presented visually, such as text and visual stimuli. Each style requires different instructional approaches to access the different entry points.
