Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Trent Lakes District Curriculum
One goal of the overall curriculum is for students to see how subjects connect and function in the real world. Students are also expected to acquire higher order, critical thinking skills which are essential in their future academic and professional pursuits. By the time students graduate, they will have the ability to mathematically and scientifically reason, analyze texts and information, communicate effectively, and develop and express their own ideas.
There are also business and career-related classes that help students understand what post-secondary life will be like. Students learn about the various elements of a business contract, including the offer, consideration, and acceptance stages. Different types of contracts are studied as well. Students learn about unilateral, bilateral, void, voidable, valid, and unenforceable contracts. Laws related to employment are also explored. Rights of employees, child labor laws, maternity leave, and a right to a non-hostile work environment are studied.

Trent Lakes District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used to guide student learning in all academic subjects from elementary to secondary school. The curriculum is also used as the basis for formal assessments and the standardized and end-of-year tests which students take are designed to measure that students achieved the objectives for learning. The core academic subjects of Math, Science, History, and English are taught by developing fundamentals and basic skills, applying them and creating new work or experiments or solutions, and also asking questions and making connections about knowledge.
We currently cover the following Trent Lakes-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.

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 Music Helps Learning
Music can aid learning in many ways, and there are even some school districts that will allow students to listen quietly to music on headphones during quiet work time. As many of us know, we learn lyrics to songs with ease and rapidity and it is totally natural, although even though they are similar acts, memorizing a long poem may seem like quiet a challenging task. The music creates a harmony and consonance which engages areas of the mind that may otherwise be distractable. If a student finds that music is effective when they are studying, the use of it should be encouraged. It may also generate a conversation about the ways the student learns best.
