Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Elgin District Curriculum
Math and Science have become areas of increased attention due to demands of the changing workplace, technological demands, and emerging industries in alternative energy. These areas of opportunity particularly call upon students to develop strong skills in math and science so that advanced learning and innovation can grow. In Math, students learn the processes of using different computational tools, methods for modeling and analyzing data, and performing quantitative reasoning.
In Science, through investigation into matter and energy, life systems, and earth and space science, students are prepared for topics in Physics, Bio-medicine, and Environmental Science. With this foundation in place, students are enabled to succeed in the technology courses available, the career-oriented pathways that provide students with invaluable work opportunities, and the opportunities to engage in global learning endeavors through language immersion and international education programs.

West Elgin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum provides the framework for the instructional process in West Elgin’s schools. This curriculum was designed to detail clear expectations for student learning, expected outcomes in terms of the learning and thinking strategies students will develop, and the types of course opportunities that will support a broad range of student interests for their career and future learning possibilities. The traditional academic courses which include English, History, Math, and Science are considered foundational because they teach students essential thinking processes, literacies, and methods to encounter, analyze and solve problems.

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 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: Preparing for the College Visit
Before going on a college visit with your teen, there are a few things that parents and teens need to do. First of all, take the time to talk with the teen about the purpose of the visits and your role. Some teens want their parents to give input along the way, others prefer the parents to stay back and observe. If the teen is not talkative, talk to other parents. If the parent is not going on the tour with the teen, they could take this time to look over the campus on their own. Research the school beforehand. Check to see if there is a question time at the end or if questions are welcomed along the way. Or check out the school’s website to see if answers can be found there.
