Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kamloops District Curriculum
The math curriculum emphasizes the topics of number systems and operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Elementary students are introduced to the basics of pattern and shape recognition, measurement, and probabilities in advance of later work. In high school, students work to make connections between algebra and geometry. They use their knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances, and also use Cartesian coordinates to verify geometric relationships, including properties of triangles and quadrilaterals.
The science curriculum has many goals including teaching the content knowledge associated with topics like biology, chemistry and physics, but also in teaching students how scientists investigate their questions, observe and track information, and convey their hypotheses and conclusions. Students learn how to present their findings as well. They are required to organize their findings in a coherent manner, including the use of graphs and charts as appropriate. Students also learn how to utilize various models to represent their findings.

Kamloops District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in Kamloops learn based on the design of the curriculum created by the Ministry of Education. The curriculum is a framework that specifies the targets for learning in each subject throughout all grade levels. The targets are referred to as Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and they outline what a student should be learning. Alternative programs like Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) have unique curriculum designed for their purposes; these curriculum have been approved by the Ministry of Education for use in the public schools.
We currently cover the following Kamloops-area school districts: School District 73, Catholic Independence Schools Vancouver Archdiocese.

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: Helping Students Develop Financial Literacy
Financial literacy can be infused in various parts of the curriculum from teaching students about banking and economics in social studies to using money problems in math, but it is an element of learning that will be critical to their future success. Savings is a concept that is central to the study of financial literacy. Students learn about various ways to save their money for the future, and gain an appreciation for the self-control that is necessary to save rather than spend. Middle school students also learn how cost, material availability, and material quality impact consumer decisions. At the high school level, students learn about various financial commitments, such as college tuition, cell phone bills, and groceries, and identify their commonalities and differences. Students investigate external factors that influence consumerism as well, including inflation. Various provincial and national statutes that protect consumers are examined as well. Students also work with contracts, analyzing the elements of a contract that are required for it to be a legal, binding document.
