Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Airdrie District Curriculum
The framework for Math establishes the progression of skills and knowledge in numeracy, geometry and measurement, algebraic operations, and data analysis which students will master. Students learn to represent mathematic thought and develop problem-solving and reasoning abilities. They learn how to interpret quantitative data and represent their findings through graphs or charts. They also learn how to extrapolate information using mathematic models, as well as how to construct usable models.
Many courses are locally developed and the curriculum is reviewed by educators and professionals in the area. Alberta Education approves the use of the each curriculum to ensure that measurable learning outcomes that effectively prepare students in the subject area are in place. The learning outcomes are assessed through project-based and formal assessments in which students are required to show what they can do.

Airdrie District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in Airdrie are taught following the curriculum designed by Alberta Education. The curriculum is a framework for teaching and learning in all subject areas across the grade span. It describes the learning objectives and measurable goals that students need to achieve in order to become proficient in the subject. In English, the goals of developing critical reading, writing and communication skills is built through reading across genres, writing for different purposes, and analyzing the different elements of text. The emphasis in this subject is to teaching reading and writing as it relates to all subject areas so that students are equally able to read a science text as they are a short story.

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: Financial Literacy Programs
One subject that students benefit from gaining knowledge in is business and finance, and many districts have a curriculum that requires students be presented with lessons in basic financial literacy. More advanced topics are handled in specific career and business oriented electives. Through financial literacy programs, students begin to understand their role within the economy and how their choices about what they buy and how much they save will pay off over time. Students may also undertake self-assessments to determine if they have the skills required to start their own business if they are in courses that help them plan for their post-secondary years. Often, students also examine various laws that regulate the creation and operation of businesses, and identify how entrepreneurs must comply with such laws.
