Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Rock District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum is undergoing revision and will reflect a new set of standards that students will be required to show proficiency in. The Learning Standards are "Comprehending and Connecting" and "Creating and Communicating" and students will be required to show that they are capable of doing each of these in their reading, writing, and discussion-based communications. There will be an increased focus on literary stories as they represent ways of knowing and sharing information and wisdom, and provide a basis for reflection and growth.
The science curriculum is also being updated to reflect the types of thinking that students are required to develop in the study of science. Students will be required to show questioning and prediction abilities, the ability to plan and conduct scientific investigations and experiments, processing and analyzing information, and evaluating and communicating their observations and findings. Each of these skill sets can be applied to all topics in science and will be the basis of evaluation for students in their science courses.

White Rock District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in White Rock’s schools was developed by the Ministry of Education for use in all schools in the province. The curriculum targets specific Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) which represent what a student should learn within the subject at each grade level. This provides a means for teachers to plan instruction based on measurable objectives. The Ministry of Education also allows for the creation of classes that do not have a curriculum designed for it. Teachers may apply for permission to design and teach a curriculum for a subject-matter that is locally relevant.
We currently cover the following White Rock-area school districts: School District No. 36, Catholic Independent Schools Vancouver Archdiocese.

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: Considering Private Colleges
There are many benefits to a private college that might be easy to overlook. They are tuition-driven, which means that they treat students like customers and really try to make the college experience significant and meaningful. Academic support is stressed, and is often easily available for students, whether they have documented need or not. Private colleges tend to be smaller than public ones, which means class sizes are smaller, and students tend to be able to form stronger relationships with professors, which can lead to internships and opportunities after college. Private colleges often offer a certain amount of prestige, as well, and the social connections that students make can be beneficial after college. As students weigh their options, the major considerations for choosing a college should do with the program options, affordability, and the network established to help students emerge from college on their career path.
