Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cochrane District Curriculum
The curriculum promotes the constant re-thinking of essential questions and inquiry. Students will have to consider multiple perspectives, support their reasoning with evidence, and join in on discussions that require them to think critically. The curriculum will be rigorous, be relevant, and provide students with the necessary 21st century skills. The district provides a curriculum guide for each content area that outlines the standards and expected year-end learning outcomes for each grade level.
There are opportunities for students to learn about the performing arts as well. There is training to improve vocal quality, stage presence, and delivery of lines. Doing so allows them to gain an appreciation for conveying messages, developing characters, and composing scripts. Learners develop the ability to critically evaluate theatrical works as well, providing feedback to peers on the quality of facial expressions, voice, gestures, and theatrical technique. At the reflecting level, learners work on self-evaluation and evaluation of other actors in order to improve performance quality.

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: Identifying Reading Strengths and Weaknesses
Teachers may ask students to identify what they do well when reading and what they struggle with and what kind of books they like or dislike and find difficult to read. Such questions can help teachers recognize specific literacy skills students understand well and those they need improvement with. A formal survey in this mold that is often given to students is the Motivation to Read Profile. This profile includes both multiple-choice and open-ended interview question. An example of a multiple-choice question is how often does the student and his/her family visit the library, while a one-on-one interview question asks the student to tell the teacher about the most interesting book he/she ever read. Additionally, it is beneficial to gauge students’ perceptions of themselves as readers (i.e.: whether they feel that they are good or poor readers).
