Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stony Plain District Curriculum
The World Languages Department offers important courses to help students prepare for fluency in another language, which is a major asset in today's global economy. Students learn to write in their new language, as well as speak or sign in order to convey information to a group. Interpersonal communication includes reading, writing, viewing, speaking, signing, and listening in their language of study. Students initiate and maintain conversations with others to convey information, express emotion, and understand others' meaning.
Social Studies introduces students to historical, political, economic, and cultural concepts. The role of movement is examined, in which students draw conclusions about the types of environments and settings that are most conducive to human settlement, such as along rivers and coastlines. Students also study the processes of globalization, including the role of technology in “shrinking” the world by facilitating communication between people who would be cut off from one another.

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: Helping a Child Develop Motivation
There are many things that can motivate a child, but understanding what works best for each and how they can be developed is an important part of parenting. Intrinsic motivation is the type of motivation that comes from within, and is natural. It could mean a child wants to please their parents or teachers; with this type of motivation an outside reward is not required to get a child motivated. Although this type of motivation may exist naturally in some children, many need extra nurturing. Extrinsic motivation is when a child strives for a goal, such as earning a good grade or starting a job and earning money. Teachers and parents can encourage motivation through positive feedback, clear instructions, opportunities to improve work, and lessons about self-monitoring skills. Students who can set goals, check their own progress, and attempt improvement will build internal motivational tools.
