Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cochrane District Curriculum
Math provides a foundation for problem-solving and process-oriented reasoning. Students learn ways of analyzing quantities and other values, recognizing geometry in everyday life, and understanding mathematic relationships. In high school, students are able to choose from pursuing an academic or applied path which connotates a greater level of depth of study. The academic math curriculum goes farther in addressing topics in algebra, geometry, and data analysis offering students the basis for advanced academic pursuit of technology, engineering, and science fields.
In English, the curriculum has been designed to help students appreciate the value of reading, the cultural awareness gained from reading, and the ability to recognize different points of view. Students learn about the structure of language and proper usage of conventions in writing and speaking. Students are offered classes in areas such as public speaking, technical writing, and media communications in the later years of high school which help strengthen their literacy and communication background.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Cochrane students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Cochrane District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in Cochrane’s schools provides a detailed overview of what students will learn in each subject, the additional program offerings which have been designed to support student interests, and subjects which prepare students for a future in a global economy. Early learning emphasizes math and literacy skills and students must demonstrate proficiency in these areas in grades 9 and 10 through province-wide assessments. With the academic foundation from the early years, students are then prepared to move into more advanced content or courses that will begin their transition to professional life.

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: Preparing for College as a High School Freshman
It is always wise to look ahead, even if a high school freshman. This is a great year to work on building a strong GPA. Colleges will look closely at applications that show the student has taken challenging classes along the way. Another way to help is to read. By reading books, students build their vocabulary which helps in college. In addition, the student needs to find activities that he enjoys doing. Look over college literature to see which colleges would be a good fit and to see their requirements for admission. Students can also begin to consider career choices and begin to keep an academic portfolio, as well as begin saving money. With these steps, students will be on the road to their future.
