Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Comox District Curriculum
The reading standards for literature and informational texts are presented separately; however, they each center on key ideas and details, craft and structure, integration of knowledge and ideas, and range of reading and text level complexity. Other categories include fundamental skills (including print concepts, phonological awareness, and phonics), speaking and listening, and language usage (conventions of English and knowledge and use of vocabulary).
Digital citizenship is an important aspect of the technology curriculum as well, with learners gaining an awareness of the ethical use of technologies. Students learn about responsible use of technology, including using technology in an ethical and respectful manner. Another focus is using the internet to conduct research and teaching students how to discern the differing quality of information they find. Technology’s impact on communication is also examined.

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: Different Types of Assessments
There are many different types of tests that students take throughout a school year and they serve different purposes. Understanding the different purposes can help ease test anxiety and understand the goals of the test. Early in the year, students may be tested to get a sense of where they are at and what strengths and weaknesses present themselves in a classroom. These are formative assessments, and are used mainly for planning. Data from these assessments inform whole-group instruction and help teachers monitor the progress of their class. Assessments at the individual level assist teachers in creating instructional groups, identifying necessary interventions and learning needs for individual students, and monitoring the progress of each child. At the end of the year, summative assessments demonstrate the proficiency a student has achieved in a subject and are used to ensure all students are achieving the goals.
