Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Huron District Curriculum
The English curriculum is also designed to start students with a broad foundation in essential literacy and communication skills, and then deepens students analytic and interpretative abilities through the range of reading, writing, speaking and listening tasks which students are required to do. The ability to read across genres and to discern the quality of information within sources is an important goal in this curriculum.
When students have a solid foundation in content and the ability to use prior knowledge to understand new concepts, their success increases. The reflective thinking used when accessing prior knowledge offers the ability to analyze and evaluate, which are thinking skills students will use throughout their academic and career pursuits. The development of cultural awareness through literature and non-fiction, and an understanding of the craft of literature are also outcomes sought for in the curriculum.

South Huron District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum has been designed to ensure that all students have a strong foundation in core academic subjects and academic options from which they can start their path to their future. The core academic program enables students with the learning skills, problem-solving strategies, and means for communication in all subjects. This is essential for their pre-secondary preparation and their ability to take on learning challenges in subjects of interest. The curriculum is also designed to provide students with innovative courses which prepare them for a career path or for college work.

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: What Colleges Are Looking For
Admission officers vary in what they are looking for, but there are certain things that can help students stand out. The first thing is to make sure that the transcript reflects that the student does well in challenging classes, including Advanced Placement classes. Next, admission officers look at SAT and ACT scores. They like to see scores that are at the same level at high school performance. Students that are active in school activities and volunteering also catch the attention of these administrators. Finally, students should take their time on the college essay. This essay should reflect personality, values, and goals. It should be thoughtful, personal and well-constructed.
