Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thorold District Curriculum
The English curriculum has been developed to encompass all literacy and communication learning across subject areas. Students read and write fiction and non-fiction, use media as texts to analyze, participate in discussions, and develop the skills for effective research. This learning is used throughout a students education and in their future pursuits. Each subject has the goal of developing the skills for success in life.
In Math, learning begins with fundamentals of numeracy, mathematical literacy, measurement and shapes, and mathematical relationships. Students move on into advanced work in Algebra, Geometry, Statistics, Trigonometry and pre-Calculus. In Science, the foundation is established in biology, chemistry and physics, earth, environment and space science, and technology. These are all areas which students can take up advanced learning during secondary school.

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: How Assessments Are Used to Guide Instruction
Students take many assessments during the year, and there is a drive by educators and administrators to use the information from these assessments to plan improvements to instruction. Students will take assessments for completely different purposes: many tests given early in the school year are designed to show teachers what students know and where instruction will be best focused. End of year proficiency tests measure student learning, show areas of strength and weakness for individual students, and show how entire grades are doing and where instruction needs to be increased.
