Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Timmins District Curriculum
Math is a core academic subject that teaches students basic problem-solving and computational methods, and then moves into more specific mathematical topics that support their understanding of science, technology, and engineering. In grades 9 and 10, math courses focus on Number Sense and Algebra, Linear Relations, Measurement and Geometry, and Analytic Geometry for students in the Academic program. In grades 11 and 12, students learn about Mathematical Functions, Calculus and Vectors, and Data Management.
The courses in Social Studies, History and World Language support the curricular goals for understanding the global environment they will be entering and gives them the means to communicate in other countries. When studying geography, they discover the landmarks, events and settlement patterns that led to people settling here. The unifying factors that the students learn about the world in geography help them feel they have commonalities with people near and far. Students also are required to conduct research on people, places, and events.

Timmins District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is the framework for teaching and learning in Timmins. This curriculum provides an organization to the subjects in that the skills and knowledge essential within each subject are broken down into teachable components. Each academic subject also supports the growth of conceptual understanding and higher order thinking skills. The assessments that students take during elementary, middle and high school are aligned to the standards of learning in the Ontario Curriculum. These show if students are proficient in the subject and help identify which instructional areas require more focus.

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: Summer Internships
Summer breaks are a great time for teens to take part in internship programs. To begin, parents can talk with their teen about some of the job experiences they had when they were younger. Include everything, including babysitting or paper routes. This helps the teen see that they do not need to know right now what they are going to do with the rest of their lives. Instead this is an opportunity to see what they may like and don’t like. The parents and the teen can start looking around. They also need to decide if they would like to work part- or full-time, paid or unpaid and more. Several internships, paid or not offer many opportunities for the teen. They can look into hospitals, doctors, support services such as finance, computer technology and so much more. Speak with the people they will be working with and contact any mentors about a visit. These are the first steps in the next part of the teen’s life.
