Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Strathroy-Caradoc District Curriculum
The literacy, problem-solving, and research skills that are emphasized are all analytic strategies that students will use in the range of personal and professional pursuits they will encounter in the future. Students are taught ways to understand and discern information from the media they view. Students develop the basis for comprehending text and evaluating sources, as well as enabling clear communication and creative forms of expression.
One element of the curriculum is that is has a measure of accountability. This is accomplished through the standardized assessments provided during province-wide testing or through the end-of-year examinations students take. Assessments like portfolios and projects also serve as a measure for students to show what they know and offer significant learning opportunities as well. These assessments are used for demonstrating students' proficiency in their core subjects and are critical to ensuring students are prepared for advanced courses and post-secondary goals.

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: Talking About the News With Children
Children are bombarded by the news, often repeatedly. They can oftentimes feel overwhelmed with the scenes they see or the words they heard. To help them understand, limit the amount of material they are presented with, especially young children. The young may not realize that the news program is repeating the same event and the repeated viewing can escalate their fear. After the viewing, the parent should take a few minutes to talk about what was seen, but do not over-explain. The use of simple words and limited time can help ease some of the fear. After this, parents need to realize that the fear the child feels is real and needs to be recognized, oftentimes a hug and a smile can help a child feel better.
