Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Temiskaming Shores District Curriculum
The high school math curriculum requires that students are prepared to solve complex math problems. During grades 9 and 10, students will either take Principles of Mathematics (Academic) or Foundations of Mathematics (Applied). Both courses introduce the same topics of Linear Relations, Number Sense and Algebra, and Measurement and Geometry, and the Academic course also introduces Analytic Geometry. Each topic sequentially follows from what students learned during eighth grade.
The high school science curriculum focuses on Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, and Physics. Students can choose between an Academic or Applied Track depending on their post-secondary goals. The topics studied in ninth grade include sustainable ecosystems, atoms, elements, and compounds, the study of the universe and space exploration, and characteristics of electricity. In tenth grade, students learn about living systems, chemical reactions, climate change, and light and geometric optics.

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: Why Teachers Use Different Instructional Approaches
Teachers have a number of options when they teach a lesson about how they will go about instructing students in the topic. The range of approaches are well-suited to different subjects and topics, and so teachers are able to pull from their toolkit and design an approach that will take into consideration learning styles and intended teaching outcomes. Different approaches can be more or less effective for individual students, which is a balance that must be found for individual students as well as whole classes.
