Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burnaby District Curriculum
The Prescribed Learning Outcomes follow a sequential pattern of building from the fundamentals to more complex work in each subject. Each subject is broken down into its major topics, for example, in Math students study numerical operations, algebra, geometry and other topics or in Science students focus on earth sciences, biology, physics and chemistry. Within each strand of the curriculum, there are detailed learning objectives to ensure student success.
The Ministry of Education is flexible in the delivery format for each individual school district in BC. School administrators can shape the curriculum as needed in order to fit their students’ specific needs, or in the case of the Ministry not developing a curriculum for a particular subject, local authorities are allowed to create their own. Additionally, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs are approved by the Ministry of Education to be administered in schools as necessary.

Burnaby District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) were developed for K-12 students by the BC Ministry of Education in order to maintain a standard of learning at the provincial level. The Ministry of Education details the expected minimum skill set and observable learning standards for students throughout all school districts in British Columbia. Students are assessed through a range of formal and informal assessments and projects to determine their achievement level at reaching all the standards.

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: Take Your Time With Your Career Path
As they enter today’s competitive work force, many secondary students may not realize that a career path does not necessarily need to be set in stone – it’s never too late to change direction. However, regular discussions with career counselors provided in most secondary educational institutions are there for just that purpose: To get the ball rolling in a realistic direction. While excellence in a particular field or subject may provide guidance toward realistic career goals as they look toward potential universities and/or trade schools, an Associate’s Degree or Certificate Program in a field of general study may still open the door for continuing education. Many students feel pressured to decide early, but there are plenty of educational options for those who can’t yet decide.
