Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portage la Prairie District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum combines many literacy skills from reading and writing, to listening, speaking and presenting. Evaluating the effectiveness of a speaker’s point-of-view is practiced as well, with students analyzing and critiquing the speaker’s delivery of ideas and the support he or she uses to back up their claims. Students also work with various digital medias in order to create a dynamic presentation.
The Science curriculum introduces students to topics in different areas of science such as biology, chemistry, physics, earth and environmental science, and technology and engineering. An examination of the earth’s resources is also undertaken. Students look at renewable sources of energy and compare their benefits and detriments to those of nonrenewable resources. Different forms of energy are studied as well, including the concepts of gravitational potential energy, nuclear energy, and conservation of energy.

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: The Benefits of a Small College
Small colleges have many things to offer students that might not be found at larger universities. For example, students are more likely to have smaller class sizes, which means they can form relationships with professors and get help and advice more easily. These relationships might lead to opportunities, such as internships. Smaller colleges tend to have loyal donors and alumni who stay involved with their alma maters because of that close experience. These alumni might offer internships and opportunities. Because of the atmosphere at many of these schools, good teachers are drawn because they want to actually be able to teach their students. Often, these colleges carry a lot of name recognition, which can be of great benefit to graduates.
