Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Parksville District Curriculum
The language arts curriculum was developed so that students would gain proficiency in reading, writing and communicating in any subject matter. There is also a focus on discussion and presentation skills so that students become adept at presenting their thoughts and listening to those of others. Active listening skills are also acquired, including the ability to maintain eye contact, use nonverbal cues, and utilize open posture to encourage the speaker to continue to engage. Students are expected to become attentive to tone and context through these objectives.
In science, students gain insight into natural phenomenon and how to study science and arrive at valid conclusions. Students also develop scientific reasoning through their investigation process. Students analyze the diversity of life, explaining the interdependence among species and ecosystems. The formation of life on the planet is studied as well. Students learn about evolution and genetic drift, acquiring the ability to explain how natural selection, gene flow and mutations result in new kinds of plant and animal life.

Parksville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum in use in Parksville was designed by the province as a framework for teaching and learning across the subject areas. The curriculum lays out the knowledge that students should gain at each grade level, referred to as the Prescribed Learning Outcomes, and use these as the measurable outcomes assessed on province-wide assessments. As students progress through the grades, their deepening knowledge in the subjects brings about more advanced types of thinking and the ability to understand broad concepts. These higher level and conceptual thinking abilities are what prepare students for the range of possibilities offered in their academic and professional future pursuits.

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.

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: Physical Education Learning Objectives
The physical education curriculum focuses on two primary areas. First, students acquire the physical abilities they need to take part in fitness activities. Young learners acquire basic skills, such as balance and fine motor control. Older students take part in individual and group activities that hone those skills and allow them to participate in athletic events, weight training, and other fitness related activities. The physical education curriculum also includes a health and wellness component. Students learn about the value of regular exercise, as well as proper nutrition. Learners develop an understanding of how to best care for their bodies in order to improve health and quality of life. Students also gain an understanding of healthy relationships and how to take part in appropriate social interactions with others.
