Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Albert District Curriculum
The curriculum in Alberta is rigorous, based on expectations for learning at each grade level, and diverse in its offerings that prepare students for next generation work and learning challenges. The curriculum has been developed so that there is a logical progression of skills which students learn each year and it is revised regularly to ensure that the knowledge students are expected to gain is relevant.
Core subjects remain a critical focus of learning. Students develop abilities in Math, Science, Languages and Communication, and are able to branch out into different subject areas as they progress in school. Beside the goals of procedural proficiency and general knowledge development in the subjects, students also begin to develop the means to reason abstractly, draw scientific conclusions, and analyze the validity of text-based information. Critical studies in media, technology and other areas that have become a part of our lives are also focused upon, allowing students to connect their learning to the goings-on of the world around them.

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: Ways to Develop Critical Thinking Skills
Critical thinking skills are developed through the opportunities students have to study topics deeply. Extensive reading brings about the ability to decode and interpret meaning in text, which are important critical thinking skills. The understanding of how to solve different types of problems, and understanding the probability of occurrences lends to the types of quantitative, abstract reasoning that people do. When students form and test a scientific hypothesis, the processing of evaluating and testing assumptions heightens critical thinking skills.
