Hey kids! The terrific websites listed below will provide help for you in almost all of your subjects. Note particularly the section near the bottom entitled Online tutoring for high school students. Note that Ontario teachers are available to help you five nights a week with homework and to help you understand stuff you don’t understand or missed in school because of illness etc.
The sites below also include sites where you can simply have fun. All the sites have been added to and altered since I began putting it together in 2005. All of the links are up-to-date as of August 21, 2013.
I want to acknowledge the tremendous help from Erica Conway, who was a student teacher in 2005-2006 with the TDSB. Erica identified and checked out many sites for me that started this list of links. There are still sites here which Erica identified and which are still alive and well in 2013!
And a shout out to Adam of the Compton Community Center in Compton, California, who shared a Chemistry resource with me to put on our webpage. Thank you Adam. Your page is found in the list immediately below called Chemistry – Organic Chemistry Glossary. And thank you also to your teacher, Molly Reedas, who wrote to me with the information so I can share it with students here in Toronto.

Purple Math, a fabulous site for math focuses on Algebra and is an outstanding source for students who may be struggling with this subject. I would welcome feedback from anyone who tries the site.
The Historical Atlas of Canada
Historical Atlas of Canada Online Learning Project is an excellent site that provides interactive maps of Canada to help students understand social studies, geography and history of Canada. The Online Learning Project helps students to critically discover the patterns and relationships within the Canadian landscape and the issues inherent in the evolution of Canada as a nation and as a society.
