Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Glengarry District Curriculum
Math and Science are subjects organized around the idea that students need a broad base of knowledge and skills in order to conduct advanced or specialized work in these technology-rich subjects. From the early years students use manipulatives to help understand counting and then simple addition and subtraction. Students learn about operations, relationships, and quantities in Math, while in Science the ability to use processes to verify conclusions draws upon and informs these growing abilities.
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 and calculus. Once students are in high school, the Math and Science becomes more focused on broad concepts such as linear equations and relations, geometric functions, biodiversity, chemical reactions, and forces of motion and energy. Students are then prepared for any of the advanced math, environmental science, or technology classes offered.

South Glengarry District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In South Glengarry, the Ontario Curriculum is used to oversee the educational process from instructional planning to assessments of student’s ability. The curriculum establishes subject-specific frameworks that detail the grade-level expectations and these are used as the basis for planning instruction and measuring achievement. The expectations represent the essentials of what students should know and be able to do in the subject at their grade level. These objectives are the building blocks for higher-order learning and their mastery is essential to academic achievement.

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.
