Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southgate District Curriculum
In English, the curriculum focuses on the reading, writing, communication, and media analysis aspects of learning. These are taught so that students are able to read across curricular subjects and weigh information in texts and the media. The process of writing is taught over the years, and students are expected to use the language properly while tailoring their writing to various purposes and audiences.
In Math, the broad goals are that students develop abstract and quantitative reasoning and the ability to work methodically on finding precise solutions. This is accomplished through the content in geometry, algebra, and data that students learn over their school years. Students also have a range of newer subject areas they can pursue like full language immersion programs, outdoor education programs, and coursework in high skills, technologically advanced subjects.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Southgate students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Southgate District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Southgate use the Ontario Curriculum as the guiding framework for teaching and learning. The curriculum establishes the goals for subject area learning and provides a means to create assessments which will measure student achievement. Some assessments students will take are given province-wide in the subjects of reading, writing, and math. These are created to ensure that students are meeting proficiency in foundational subjects. All the subjects are laid out in a similar fashion, but specific to their content, concepts and skills. The grade-level expectations are detailed and the broad expectations for learning are explained.

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 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 to Do When A Teen Talks Back
Teens often want to test boundaries and their independence by talking back to their parents. When they do, parents need to keep a few ideas in mind. Even though they appear to becoming more and more adult, they have not become rational yet. They do not think the same as children or as adults and they feel invulnerable. Parents need to listen to them and help them to see that you are on their side. Back off when they need some time alone, but do not give up. Be subtle. Perhaps write them a note while keeping the dialogue open. Talk in a lower voice. When a parent shouts, the teen will shout in return. Plus remember, the parent is the authority in the house. As such they can set limits and may not always be able to be friends, but they can treat them in a friendly fashion.
