Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tecumseh District Curriculum
In Math, students learn fundamentals in all areas of math during their elementary and middle school years. Once at the secondary school, the classes start in grade 9 with Principles of Math and Foundations of Math which teach students algebraic and geometric reasoning in equations, determining connections between different linear representations, and how to understand 3-d figures and 2-d shapes. Following that, courses become more focused in the areas of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics.
In Science, students study the structures and mechanisms such as bridges, energy sources, buildings and more abstract forces, they learn about life systems, earth and space studies, and matter and energy. Chemistry introduces students to topics such as the properties of chemicals and chemical bonds, chemical reactions and the quantitative relationships taking shape. The courses in Physics teach students about principles of motion and energy, energy transformations, and different types of mechanical and magnetic waves.

Tecumseh District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides a comprehensive framework for subject-area learning, co-operative education experiences, interdisciplinary pursuits, and it lays out pathways that students may take to accomplish their future goals. Each subject is broken down to explain its expectations for student learning, essential concepts and knowledge, and the types of problem-solving or analytic work students will do. These are all established at the appropriate levels for each grade and the foundation of knowledge builds through the school years. The K-12 continuum provides the necessary strategies to develop proficiency in all subject areas.

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: How to Prevent a Child From Cheating
With the pressure that students feel from parents, peers, or college admission offices, it is tempting for the teen to turn to cheat at times. To help alleviate this issue, parents can help by taking off the pressure at home. Let the child know that their best is expected, not necessarily the very best in the class. As long as they study, and ask questions, be happy that they are trying. To go along with this, try not to punish the child for bad grades and try not to give extrinsic awards for good ones. Praise them and acknowledge the hard work that has gone into it. Finally, set a good example for the child. Don’t take shortcuts that may appear as cheating to the teen. Remember the goal and be a good role model.
