Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Saskatchewan District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students are taught reading and writing in an integrated fashion so that they have models for writing, and means for reflection of what they have read. Comprehension and analysis skills are central goals, and students respond to what they have read both orally and in writing. Students will be assessed through a variety of standardized tests and reading level assessments.
The design of each subject-area framework calls upon students to focus in on key topics, develop knowledge and skill sets, and then apply their learning to building deeper knowledge. Students are continually reviewing and learning new concepts, current concepts, and old concepts. This allows students to refresh older skills, practice current skills, and preview upcoming skills. Students are assessed daily on particular skills and assessed comprehensively after each unit of study.

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: Note-taking Strategies
One of the most important study strategies that help a student succeed, both on tests and on long-term memory of the content, is note-taking. One reason note-taking is so important is because of how the act of writing while listening, wherein the brain is doing two things at once, allows a student a better chance to truly 'get' the material. When the mind engages with a subject using more than one sense, the concepts is better embedded for the future. While taking notes, a student should not try to write down every word they hear, rather key words and phrases, as well as any questions they have during a lecture. Use shorthand writing so that you don’t get caught up writing too much for just one topic. Use a highlighter to mark parts of your notes will be on your homework or tests for easy reference later on. Notes should be read over both after the class and prior to any tests.
