Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canmore District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum helps students develop the abilities needed for strong reading, writing, and communication skills and to be able to use them across disciplines. Students work with informational as well as personal texts to devise a better overall understanding of literary concepts. The curriculum also emphasizes strong research skills so that students can locate and evaluate information.
The science curriculum introduces students to many topics and the process that scientists use to study natural phenomenon. Students examine how energy sources were developed and are used today, and make predictions about their use in the future. The environmental impact of exploring these energies is also examined. Throughout these studies, students also develop an understanding for the processes involved in scientific inquiry, including the application of the scientific method and the use of tools and technology to acquire, analyze, and interpret data.

Canmore District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Canadian Rockies Public Schools follows the Alberta Education curriculum from elementary through high school. The district also works hard to ensure each child’s learning needs are met, and that students have the dignity and self-worth that they deserve. Students also learn about interpersonal relationships, including how to solve problems and disagreements in a mature and respectful way. This is accomplished with strong attention to community-building programs within the district that teach social and emotional skills that children need to become successful adults.

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: What Is a Reading Inventory?
A reading inventory is a type of assessment designed to determine what reading level a student is at. The test is as measure of a student’s decoding, fluency, and comprehension skills. While the student is reading the passage, the test administrator will be responsible for marking down any miscues (errors) that are made. After all parts are completed, the instructional reading level will be determined. The passage will be at the ideal instructional level—meaning not too difficult or easy—if the child recognized about 95 percent of the words and answered roughly 75 percent of the comprehension questions correctly. This helps students choose books that are appropriate for their level and helps teachers understand the individual strengths and weaknesses of each reader in the class.
