Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sudbury District Curriculum
The mathematics and English language arts curricular frameworks are emphasized during the elementary years and is the basis for the standardized tests given throughout the province. The curriculum for English has been designed to support learning across all subjects. Students read both fiction and non-fiction, learn analytic decoding skills, develop an appreciation for media as text, acquire skills in personal and objective writing, and gain an awareness of other cultures and perspectives through the literature they read.
Social Studies and History learning is also emphasized and used to introduce students to the important time periods throughout human history. This includes the study of the Neolithic or Agricultural Revolution to the present time. It also develops a sense of different civilizations throughout history, which can tie each of the students from today to those around the world, and throughout time. This is also an area in which students develop many of their research skills.

Sudbury District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Sudbury’s schools, the curriculum used is the Ontario Curriculum. This is a framework for each academic and elective subject and the knowledge central to the subject is described and the thinking skills that students will develop are detailed. In laying out the curriculum in this manner, the province provides students the framework for learning to the highest possible standards so that students are prepared for their future pursuits. The knowledge and thinking skills which support literacy and math abilities are described in the Ontario Curriculum and are the topics students are tested on in standardized proficiency tests.

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: Credit Cards and Teens
There are times when giving a teen a credit card can give a peace of mind to parents and the teen. There are things to keep in mind, though. First, teens need to understand how to stay in a budget. They should understand the difference between needs and wants, plus not charging more than they can pay off at one time. Prepaid credit cards or debit cards can help the teen to gain experience with some of the concepts without the risks. Parents may want to make the teens spendable money a part of the card balance. Finally, parents need to make sure to stay involved with their teens while giving them independence.
