Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodstock District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum focuses on teaching students how to draw inferences and make reasonable conclusions about a text. Students are required to support their analysis and conclusions in discussion and in writing using information from the text, from other texts, and the world around them. The curriculum also emphasizes vocabulary development and proper usage of grammar and conventions. In writing, students are assessed on both well-supported ideas and use of language.
The Math curriculum for high school students require them to choose between an Academic or Applied version of their math courses. The academic courses focus on theoretical and abstract problems and how math is used to solve complex problems. The applied courses focus on the practical applications found in algebra, geometry, data management, and other math topics. More advanced math courses include Functions and Applications, Calculus and Vectors, and Mathematics of Data Management.

Woodstock District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in Woodstock was developed at the provincial level to ensure that all students are taught to the same high standards of learning. The Ontario Curriculum describes what knowledge is required to master each academic subject. Additionally, the subjects all foster areas of higher order thinking or conceptual growth, the Ontario Curriculum also describes what these are. The standardized assessments that students take in Reading, Writing and Math during their school years are aligned to the description of these subject areas in the Ontario Curriculum.

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: When Homework Goes Beyond Bedtime
There are various reasons, or excuses, why a child does not have his or her homework done before they need to go to bed. No matter what the reason, parents may need to step in to keep this from becoming a daily occurrence. First of all, the child needs to know that it is their responsibility to get their homework done. It is the parent’s to make sure they gets enough rest. Set up a time for them to work on their homework and a time for them to be finished so they can complete the pre-bedtime activities. Stay consistent. Make sure to have their books so they will not continue in bed. If needed, they can get up early to finish work in the morning.
