Southwest Middlesex District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Southwest Middlesex use the Ontario Curriculum which is an extensive and flexible model for the instructional process. The curriculum is used to plan instruction by providing objectives for learning within each subject at all grade levels. It is also used to design formal and authentic assessments that measure and reflect students’ educational achievement. The framework is established through the descriptions of core academic subjects such as Math, Science, History, and English. Each of these subjects are comprised of series of skills, concept and procedural knowledge, and experiences which deepen students content and conceptual understanding.

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: Types of Reading Substitution Miscues
Sometimes, a reader may substitute a word in a text with a non-word, or word that doesn't really exist. In this case, the teacher would still write the substituted word above the actual word but would also add a special symbol—usually a dollar sign—to indicate that the child substituted a non-word. This is important because if a student uses a non-word, he/she likely unsuccessfully tried to sound out the existing word and didn't substitute with a real word that made sense in context. Finally, it is common for students to substitute multiple words in a text with a word or words; in this case, the teacher should draw a bracket over all the words that are replaced and write the substituted word above the bracket.
