Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Vancouver District Curriculum
The Prescribed Learning Outcomes detail learning expectations in core courses and is designed to teach a series of fundamentals to young learners which they build on during middle and high school. The high school curriculum is rigorous and students are required to meet many objectives specific to areas like algebra and geometry in Math, or in reading and writing in English. The skills learnt in these courses are integrated into other areas of learning so that students are critical and literate communicators.
Advanced and specialized education programs such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) are also covered by the Prescribed Learning Outcomes. This curriculum can then be shaped at the district level by administrators in order to fit schools’ needs. In cases where a subject or course is offered which is not covered by the curriculum, general goals and guidelines are in place for administrators to follow.

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: The Benefits of Tutoring
Tutoring isn’t just for struggling students. It can also provide valuable skills for students to help themselves get ready for exams and by getting them into better study habits. Beyond traditional measures like the use of study materials such as flash cards and self-quizzes, tutors can aid in finding not only the correct answers, but timely ones so students may complete their tests more quickly. Tutors can help students recognize their strengths and use them to bring up areas of weakness. Often, the anticipation of a test can be the worst part, as a particularly important test can make even the best students nervous. Tutoring and mastering of study skills can often give promising students the confidence they need to ace every exam which they will take!
