Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Whitby District Curriculum
With the foundation provided by the Ontario Curriculum, students are prepared to enter into a community where they can support their local or global interests and pursue learning and work opportunities that they consider important. The enrichment and extracurricular opportunities take the learning experience a step further and allow students the chance to step into their future while still in a supportive learning environment.
Math, Science, and English have become increasingly focused upon subjects because of the boom in technology and communication. Technology courses in systems, design, and communication use the knowledge which students develop in Math, Science and English and offer students a chance to create and innovate. Students develop both the processes for solving technological challenges and also the means to create meaningful messages and expression using technology.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Whitby students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Whitby District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the schools in Whitby is both traditional and adaptive. It provides students with a traditional framework in subject-area learning but also provides a wide range of programs and courses that have been initiated through changes in the workplace and student interests. The proliferation of Environmental Science or International Education courses is an example of how academic options have increased and students have options they can use to develop ideas about what they would like to pursue in advanced learning or workplace pursuits. Math, Science, English, History/Social Studies, Arts, and the World Languages courses all offer different perspectives into how the world works and also provides important knowledge and concepts.

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: Applying to College
Applying to college is a lengthy process involving course selection, letters of recommendations, college essays, and deciding which college is the best fit. First of all, the teen’s high school curriculum should be planned when they are freshmen. Without a formal letter of recommendation, colleges won’t take the application seriously, so it’s very important that it be included in the application packet. Visiting the college is important and speaking with current students can give a prospective student good insights. Ask students at the college what they like the best about the school and the least. Find out what they would tell themselves if they were a beginning freshman at this school. Check out the departmental sites for classes and professors, event sites and the admission office. With this knowledge in hand, the parent and teen will be more prepared for this important time.
