Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Nipissing District Curriculum
In Science, the elementary framework is designed around life, earth, environmental and physical sciences. Students learn about the process of scientific inquiry and are introduced to technology as a scientific development. The Environmental Education initiatives have caused the development of many classes in that subject, and the demand for technology education has given rise to a range of technology-related courses. Students also may take Biology, Chemistry and Physics, with opportunities for advanced coursework.
The English curriculum has been broadly designed to address literacy, communication, and the development of language and analytic skills in all subject areas. There is a strong emphasis on literature, its craft, and the cultural understanding raised by reading and there is a strong focus on writing, how it can be developed, and the many purposes for writing. Students are given non-fiction to read, analyze, and respond to and are expected to have the formal skills to do so.

West Nipissing District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
West Nipissing’s schools use an instructional plan that follows guidelines for subject-area learning which have been established for all grade levels. Each subject is organized so that fundamental learning grows into a deeper understanding over the years. The elementary curriculum is designed to give students a lot of hands-on learning opportunities while the secondary curriculum offers both practical and theoretical extensions to the subjects. The enrichment and elective offerings also provide a similar experience and are organized using similar principles.
We currently cover the following West Nipissing-area school districts: Near North District School Board and Nipissing-Parry Sound 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: College Applications as a Sophomore
As a freshman, teens will have laid the foundation for their educational futures. In the sophomore year it is time for the student to begin focusing on activities. This includes extracurricular and summer activities. The teen should not be overwhelmed by the choices or by joining too many. Parents can help the teen find what they feel passionate about. Then try one or two to see if they fit this passion. Educationally, the student should be continuing to take strong classes that they can handle, so the activities will still find a place in the student’s life. When looking for an activity, don’t worry about the college application, instead decide if the activity will be fun and something that the teen will enjoy for a while. Help the teen to remember, even though their education is important, so is finding something they can enjoy to help them relax, also.
