Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Welland District Curriculum
Teaching and learning in Welland follows the organization of the academic subjects as laid out in the Ontario Curriculum. The curriculum provides an overview of each subject in terms of describing the skills and knowledge required to become proficient in the subject. The curriculum also describes the conceptual knowledge and thinking skills that students gain through the content of the courses.
For example, in math students need to understand major topics like algebra or geometry and will also gain in thinking skills like problem-solving and spatial thinking. The curriculum does not describe how these topics should be taught or what material a teacher should use, rather it provides standards that all teachers in the province should include in their instruction so that all students meet the standards.

Welland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The District School Board of Niagara and Niagara Catholic District School Board both follow the Ontario Curriculum to ensure all students receive a high quality learning experience. The Ontario Curriculum is divided by elementary and secondary guidelines, but the elementary curriculum is designed to develop the skills necessary to achieve the goals of the secondary curriculum. In addition to core academics, the districts also have a number of specialized programs that connect students with international learning opportunities, college-level academics, cooperative education opportunities, and many other options.

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.

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: Building Organization Skills
Starting in fifth grade, the student’s workload will be such that they need to begin to build organizational skills. Each student from this year on, should have a planner to keep track of assignments and when they are due. They can even ask a friend if they can check each other’s’ planners to make sure they have the assignments written down. Parents can also develop a reward system when the child completes an assignment or fills in their planner. Finally when there is a long-term assignment, use a calendar to help them plot out mini-steps toward their goal.
