British Columbia Curriculum-Based Education
The schools in British Columbia follow the curriculum outlined by the British Columbia Education System, which focuses on literacy development, communication, and thinking and cultural perspectives. The Prep Academy Tutors of Interior BC provide educational assistance based on this curriculum to fill in any gaps in a student’s knowledge and to prepare them to better understand the course material.
The educators at Prep Academy Tutors execute a private and personalized approach to curriculum material to provide students with the extra attention they need to catch up to their peers and gain confidence in their ability to academically succeed.
The redesign of curriculum reinforces the current views in BC on the need for strong foundations in literacy and numeracy.
Literacy and numeracy foundations – text literacy (reading and writing), number and financial literacy, visual literacy, and digital literacy—are fundamental requirements for full social and economic participation in today’s world.
Literacy and numeracy skills are developed through applications in all curricular areas. Literacy and numeracy performance expectations are described in the BC performance standards.
We provide tutoring that aligns with the subject matter taught in your child’s current school curriculum so that they can apply their new-found knowledge in the classroom, and see the parallels between what they are learning at home and in school. This allows them to make important connections and change their approach to learning as a whole

“We noticed in grade 5 that our son was having difficulty in math and was overwhelmed taking tests. A friend’s daughter was having great success with Prep Academy Tutors and recommended we contact them to help support his learning. Now he is a different student. Prep Academy Tutors have helped our son get focused, stay motivated and develop strong study and test skills. They use the right combination of encouragement, accountability and challenge and as a result our son’s academic achievements and self-confidence have increased dramatically. We consider Prep Academy Tutors all part of our son’s success team and would highly recommend them.”
“I cannot say enough about Prep Academy Tutors. This is our third year with them and they continue to provide us with experienced, knowledgeable, reliable and personable tutors. Our 15 year old son was diagnosed with a Language Learning disability 3 years ago and since working with Prep Academy Tutors the trend line is up. His self-confidence, ability to organize, test writing fears and marks have all improved. Our son also has a very busy co-curricular calendar and Prep Academy Tutors has been amazing when it comes to flexibility and working together with us to find what works best for all. Prep Academy Tutors also works hard to find the right personality fit for each Student and Tutor. Lastly, having the tutors come to our home is wonderful!”
Prep Academy Tutors has been an outstanding resource for us this year as we all try to navigate this new normal. Their process, and their tutors, have both been top notch and allowed us to give our children the additional support that they need during this time.
In this super stressful time, it gives me much calm knowing my son’s learning is in great hands. We are using both in-person and virtual Prep Academy tutors to supplement my son’s 4th Grade curriculum and I am confident that he is not only not missing a step, but authentically engaged & thriving. I plan on continuing with Prep Academy long after at-home learning is done.
Our tutor from Prep Academy Tutors has had a tremendous impact on our young children’s interest in reading, writing and math basics. They look forward to seeing her twice a week and we’ve never seen our kids so engaged in learning both with her and at school. It’s not just a supplement to school but we also feel it enhances their experience in the classroom.
During a stressful time of private school test preparation, Prep Academy Tutors was a true lifesaver. Their qualified, organized, and experienced staff provided one-on-one sessions of the highest caliber (virtually) which left our child feeling ready to take on the challenges of academic testing. Thank you, Prep Academy Tutors. We highly recommend your services and continue to be grateful!
I am very impressed with Prep Academy Tutors! Within 24 hours multiple tutors were found that were available to tutor my daughter and within days everything was set up. Highly recommend!
Our fourth grade son’s tutor is fantastic! He is enthusiastic and very motivated to help our son tackle very complex math concepts. Our son really looks forward to the tutoring sessions and has become more engaged in his schoolwork as a result.
Prep Academy Tutors helped us structure a small learning pod of first grade children. They helped us work through the details of group size, frequency of tutoring, curriculum and finding a tutor that connects well with the children. The kids enjoy and look forward to every tutor time.
