Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Surrey District Curriculum
The Prescribed Learning Outcomes are comprehensive and detail the many learning objectives that students should meet each year. For instance, in the English curriculum, reading skills for fiction and non-fiction, how to recognize point of view and purpose in a text, and how to discuss analytic views of different texts are all developed over the years. In writing, students are expected to learn how to write an essay for different purposes include persuasive, explanatory, and narrative. They are also taught how to edit and revise written work and have technology options for presenting final work.
Individual schools are allowed flexible delivery of these standards as needed. In addition, Surrey schools provide alternative learning such as distance education, special needs, and trade courses. Students are encouraged to direct their learning experience so that it maximizes their interests and future goals and to choose from the electives offered to learn valuable skills.

Surrey District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum in the Surrey School District was developed by the British Columbia Ministry of Education to set a province-wide standard of learning for K-12 students. Called the Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs), the Ministry of Education details specific minimum levels of expected student knowledge for any given subject. These frameworks are regularly reviewed to be up-to-date with current learning expectations and so that students are adequately prepared for post-secondary life.
We currently cover the following Surrey-area school district: Surrey School District.

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: Formatting Your Resume
Most students in secondary education may not know how to properly build a resume as they enter the work force for the first time. A uniform professional-looking font and consistent font size could very well be the different between getting your first big job and being passed over by a potential employer. Without prior job experience, the best content for resume writing is often extracurricular activities or clubs, honors, and awards. With some prior experience even a paper route or a babysitting job is acceptable to list, as it shows a potential employee is trustworthy. Part-time or summer work may not require a resume at all, but proper formatting and resume building is a very beneficial skill to learn early. Most schools have resources that can help, counselors in particular.
