Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Uxbridge District Curriculum
English is organized to deliver fundamentals of language usage, reading, and writing to students and to provide students with opportunities for independent reading and classroom discourse. The learning enables students to analyze and evaluate texts from all literary genres, non-fiction, and common media sources. Through these classes, students are able to understand and communicate about how the world works and to understand the types of thinking they enjoy most which will help them prepare for an engaging career path.
In Science, students learn how to investigate their ideas before reaching conclusions, collecting and observing data, and understanding the basics of energy and matter. In grade 9, the courses teach basic concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics. Students learn about atomic and molecular structures, the properties of energy, waves and matter, and how eco-systems work. This is also done in an Applied or Academic model, and following this foundation students have options in Environmental Sciences and Technology as well.

Uxbridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is a broad framework that details the process of student learning and provides teachers with clear expectations for the content and skills they teach. Teachers are able to use many instructional approaches to meet these goals, and there are a range of assessment styles that can provide insight into student achievement. The Math courses designed for students entering high school teach proportional reasoning, linear relations, and functions of geometry and design principles. Students may take these in an Applied or Academic track, preparing them either for practical application or theoretical understanding, respectively.

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: Meal Times with Teens
When children become teens their schedules become full almost overnight. This makes it difficult to make sure they are eating nutritionally and not just grabbing a burger and fry on the run. Hopefully, they have been raised to know what constitutes good eating. Here are some hints to help. When having a family meal, make sure it is a pleasant time which does not involve nagging about food. Encourage each person to stop eating when they are full and do not force them to eat more when they are done. Parents should not turn to food as a reward or for comfort. If a teen sees the parents doing this they may just turn to food in this way also. Finally, make sure there is plenty of healthy food available in the refrigerator and that meals are balanced. Following these tips will help to show teens how to eat to feel and look good.
