Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cold Lake District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum is heavily focused on reading and writing and also includes the skills of listening, speaking, and critical media viewing. Students also learn about facets of the research process from finding library resources to being able to read and incorporate others views into their own work. To that end, the curriculum places emphasis on non-fiction reading so that students are able to evaluate information.
The Social Studies curriculum teaches students about concepts such as governance, economics, society, culture, and geography. This core subject provides students with content knowledge about the world that can spark interest in history and culture and the critical thinking skills to understand how world, and local, events shape history. Students begin by learning about their home area, they then compare other regions, or countries to the procedures they have discovered. The students then learn how they can make a difference in the way that their municipality and country are run.

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: Tips for the SAT
The SAT contains questions of three difficulty levels that are worth an equal number of points, so it is essential that test takers identify and answer all the easy questions. On the reading section of the exam, it is important to spend the bulk of the time on the reading comprehension portion. For short passages, it can be beneficial to scan the passage for its purpose and main idea first and then read the questions, locating the answers in the passage. For the longer passages, they should be read first, with notes regarding purpose, main idea, characters, and opinions being kept in the margins. For the SAT, students are often taught to take a guess when they can eliminate at least one answer choice, but if they have no idea, to leave the question blank. They should always use process of elimination to literally cross off answer choices they know cannot be correct or do not make sense.
