Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richmond District Curriculum
K-12 students follow a curriculum developed at the provincial level by the British Columbia Ministry of Education called Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs). This curriculum upholds an expected average level of learning skills and knowledge for all students throughout the province. The Ministry also approves administration of Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs and provides support services for students requiring additional help throughout all BC schools.
The Prescribed Learning Outcomes direct the learning outcomes in each subject, for example in Math the skills of numeracy, operational sense, geometry and spatial awareness, algebra, and data analysis are all focused on in terms of how to build student ability over the years. The topics progress in complexity but build upon previously learnt content. Likewise, in the sciences, students receive an education both in the processes of observing and testing phenomenon and the knowledge central to each discipline such as earth science, biology, chemistry or physics.

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.

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 All-Important Cover Letter
When seeking full-time or career-level employment, a resume or a simple application just won’t do. Students need education that will aid them in getting the attention of a potential employer. In addition to highlighting skills and formatting in a professional manner, as well as a general greeting of “To Whom It May Concern”, proper grammar and spelling is a must. If job experience is lacking, all hope is not lost. A well-presented cover letter can still highlight exactly why an employer should choose you simply by focusing on social skills, activities, and accomplishments. Are you good with people? Do you have a skill that would benefit the position you’re applying for? A unique talent or accolade? Focus on that aspect of yourself, and stand out from the rest of the applicants.
