Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South-West Oxford District Curriculum
In Math, students build skills in operations and functions of numbers, shapes, lines, equations, and quantitative data. They develop the higher-order abilities of logical and mathematical reasoning, problem-solving techniques and the ability to work with different computational tools. In Science, content is taught in biology, earth and space science, chemistry and physics, technology, and the environment.
In English, the broad goals of literacy and communication development is intended to support learning in all subjects. Students read all genres of fiction and non-fiction. They write for different purposes, and develop processes for effective communication. The goals of developing analytic and critical readers and thinkers is central, and students are expected to demonstrate these abilities in writing, presentations and projects.

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 Type of Student Should Do an Independent Study?
Any type of student should, and can, take on an independent study. An independent study offers a student the opportunity to create original scholarship and pursue a subject that is meaningful to them. This provides a unique opportunity to gain the skills of self-directed learning, inquiry and investigation, and producing work that shows the newly gained knowledge. One possible way to take on an independent study is to combine two subjects, like science and history, and explore ways in which they are related. Independent studies also give students the chance to work with an advisor who will be able to provide attention to the subject.
