Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winnipeg District Curriculum
The history and social studies curriculum introduces students to topics and concepts in government, politics, economics, geography, and cultural studies. Students learn about the ever-changing global environment, recognizing the influence of humans on the planet. The ideas of cooperation and conflict are also studied. Students learn how the rise of cities was due to the need for people to work together in order to protect themselves from outside threats. Children also learn about basic economic principles, such as needs and wants, and that some resources are limited.
In the world languages curriculum, students gain the ability to speak, listen and read in another language. The curriculum starts out with the foundations of vocabulary and grammar to help students grasp the language. Following that, students develop the ability to derive meaning from spoken and written communications, and also demonstrate the ability to convey messages through spoken and written communication. As skills are acquired, students are able to speak in ways that give their interactions more originality.

Winnipeg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Manitoba Department of Education provides curriculum in a variety of subject areas which are used in the public schools of Winnipeg. In addition to traditional core academic subjects, there are curriculum for Diversity Learning, Sustainable Development, Technology Education, and Information and Communication Technology, to name a few. As the District continually strives to prepare students to face current and future challenges, there will be new curricula developed to target newly developing learning areas.These curriculum provide frameworks that detail the standards of learning at each grade level that will give students the necessary skills and knowledge to master the subject.

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: Goals of the Financial Literacy Curriculum
The goal of schools is to prepare students for their post-secondary life, and so beyond core subjects like math and language arts, curriculum for subjects like financial literacy are also used. Students learn about savings, credit, and interest rates, and later learn about topics such as the stock market. Consumer behavior is examined, and students gain an appreciation for the cyclical nature of consumer confidence, and how that impacts the overall economy. Students explore the nature of the global economy as well, making predictions about how economic events in other areas of the world can impact one’s personal financial goals. Students study business and finance ethics as well. Various situations are presented to learners in which they must decide the extent of their duty to act. Learners also explore numerous protections afforded to consumers to protect them from fraud. This includes an examination of illegal lotteries, lemon laws, and unfair pricing methods.
