Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stone Mills District Curriculum
The development of broad-based literacy skills is an important goal of the curriculum. Students are expected to become scientifically literate, financially literate, and globally literate during their years in school. They will have opportunities to show what they know on assessments like project and portfolios and in their community service or experiential learning opportunities. The farther along in school, the more opportunities to integrate knowledge and experience are offered to students and require that students have mastered the fundamentals.
The core academic subjects are also responsible for the development of higher-order thinking, which is essential for future career and personal goals. The ability to analyze information, determine the best method for solving a problem, and discern the validity of phenomenon are all areas of thought that students become able to do. This prepares students to be independent thinkers capable of taking on new learning challenges.

Stone Mills District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local school boards follow the Ontario Curriculum which is a model for learning that has been designed in a collaborative process between educators and industry professionals. The curriculum is designed to serve a number of goals such as preparing students for career opportunities, providing a strong base in core academic subjects, and offering students engaging pathways they may pursue during their education. All students are expected to gain proficiency in core academic subjects like English, Math, and Science. These subjects each have proficiency assessments which are aligned to the grade-level expectations in the curriculum.
We currently cover the following Stone Mills-area school districts: Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board and Limestone District School Board.

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: Reading Anticipation Guides
Reading Anticipation Guides are effective if the analytic questions require students to use some critical thinking and whose answers are not found directly in the text. It may be a good idea to include a question asking students to define, identify a synonym of, and write a sentence using an important vocabulary word. Finally, the “after reading” section usually asks students to go back and see what they knew and learned. For instance, they may revisit the pre-reading section and place a star next to each question they answered correctly and fill out what they learned from the reading (L part of the KWL chart). They also may be asked to ask a question that requires them to use high-order thinking skills. The following is an example: “Pretend as if you are a person who lived in the United States during the Great Depression. Write a short journal entry from that person’s perspective (you may be a child, woman, or man). Be sure to include evidence from the textbook.”
