Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Abbotsford District Curriculum
The language arts curriculum was developed to enable student communication and literacy in all subjects. Analytic reading skills and the ability to deliver organized and clear thoughts in writing are developed each year. When speaking, students learn how to deliver an appropriate introduction with details that support their argument or point of view. Learning to critique the work of others is a part of the curriculum as well. Students offer feedback to their peers with regard to writings and oral presentations, and learn how to critique assigned readings as well.
In circumstances where a class is being offered that the Ministry of Education has not developed a curriculum for, local school authorities have the ability to create their own curriculum. In addition, the curriculum used in Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate Programs have been approved by the Ministry of Education for use in the schools. Within these programs, the expectations that students will face at college are emphasized so that students know what to expect in terms of conducting research, writing original works, and communicate their thoughts.

Abbotsford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Abbotsford use the curriculum that was developed by the province and describes what students are expected to learn within each subject area at every grade level. The curriculum refers to these standards as Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and are targets for student learning within the content areas. Teachers are able to create their own lessons and to integrate other subjects and concepts into their subject area, the curriculum is simply used as a framework for the areas of learning which need to be covered in the course.
We currently cover the following Abbotsford-area school district: Abbotsford School District, Catholic Independent Schools Vancouver Archdiocese.

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: What Is the BC Skills Provincial Competition?
The BC Skills Provincial Competition is an event that has convened annually since 1994 for elementary through high school students who wish to showcase their trades and technology skills in competition. The popularity of the event has contributed to the development of additional programs offered by BC Skills including a Trades & Technology Conference for Women, the InSPIRE program that brings presentations to schools for teachers and students to think about creative ways to incorporate these types of skills into the learning routine. There is also a Cardboard Boat Race competition that has challenged students to design the best boat out of a material that doesn't usually float. BC Skills, as an organization, has helped infused the knowledge of those proficient in trades and technology into many other areas of learning.
