Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stratford District Curriculum
The learning outcomes in each academic subject describe the foundational and advanced knowledge that students will develop over the years. These learning outcomes, or academic standards, are aligned to the assessments given across the province in reading, writing and math. In that the curriculum describes the expected outcomes but does not describe how it must be taught, teachers can use a range of content, lesson plans, and approaches to effectively teach the expected standards.
Each subject area framework is also designed so that students do age-appropriate critical thinking about the subjects they are learning. The English Language Arts critical thinking goals include being able to analyze texts, evaluate information, and communicate well-supported ideas. The goals of the math curriculum include teaching students how to mathematically reason, how to read quantitative date, ways to represent mathematical information and processes, and determine the best methods for solving problems.

Stratford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Stratford use the Ontario Curriculum for planning the specific goals of teaching each of the academic subjects. The curriculum describes the general skill sets that students need to develop in their course of study. The learning is foundational because of the literacy, communication, problem-solving, and process-oriented abilities they teach. The framework of each subject relies on students having become proficient in the content and then uses that ability to achieve next levels of understanding and concept knowledge. Additionally, those skill sets are extended into the range of higher-level thinking skills that students gain within each subject.

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: Parent-Teacher Conferences
When preparing to attend a parent-teacher conference, it helps if the parents know what to expect. The most important point to come away with is how the child is doing in the class and to find if there are specific areas that need attention. When scheduling the conference make sure that it is not squeezed in so that there is plenty of time to address issues. Also, unless the teacher requests it, the child and any siblings should not be brought to the meeting. Before going the parent needs to be aware of the child’s grades and be familiar with the curriculum. Begin with any positives that the child has about the class or the teacher. This opens the doorway to a friendly conversation that puts everyone at ease. Then make sure that any questions are asked and answered. After, stay involved with the class by reading newsletters and sending occasional notes to the teacher with encouragement or with questions.
