Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Williams Lake District Curriculum
The social studies curriculum helps students explore geography, politics, government, economics, culture and society and develop an awareness about the world. Civics courses instill an appreciation for the rights and responsibilities of citizens as well as an understanding of the role of government in protecting the citizenry. This subject is also one in which students are able to conduct independent research in different aspects of the world that interest them - places, people, historical events - and gain important research skills.
The arts curriculum allows students to explore visual and performing arts, and learn about the creative and technical sides of these fields. Students learn about aesthetics, and acquire the ability to describe and utilize techniques to manipulate materials into their artistic vision. As students age, they gain the skills required to produce fine art, including developing works for show in an exhibition. The performing arts curriculum also includes an investigation into the role of music in the human experience and how music can evoke emotion.

Williams Lake District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
School District No. 27 bases its educational program on the provincial curriculum and locally developed electives and career-related courses. The curriculum follows a progressive design where student learning is centered on major themes within each subject and students move toward increasingly complex work as they near graduation. Preparing students for post-secondary life is one of the main goals of the district, and to that end programs in character education and community service are also part of the overall expectations.
We currently cover the following Williams Lake-area school district: School District No. 27.

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: Authentic Assessments
Students face many tests and assessments throughout their education, some causing greater anxiety than others. Authentic assessments are used to help measure what a student knows, can learn, and gives them a chance to demonstrate mastery of a topic. Most authentic assessments are project based and students generally produce some type of work - long essay, performance piece, scientific experiment - that represents the best of their ability. What's particularly useful about authentic assessments are that they offer many teachable moments as students go through the process of planning and executing their project. By and large, students are more likely to remember an authentic piece of work they completed as they reflect on their academic successes.
