Calgary Social Studies Courses For All Grade Levels

The study of social sciences teaches our youth to be informed, responsible, open-minded and active members of society. In social studies we learn about ourselves. This includes Canada’s diverse cultures, our history, democracy, economics, government, environment, geography and so much more. We also learn about societies located outside of Canada. This knowledge helps shape our young people to be well informed about the world around us.

Curriculum Description

At Calgary Home Tutoring, we work with Alberta's Social Studies Curriculum and focus on what the student is currently working on in school. We often take a step back to build up skills from a lower grade level if there is that need. Many students are behind grade level. We try to find a balance of keeping the student up to date on what they are doing currently, while also working on skill catch up.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does your Social Studies Tutor provide In-Person and Online tutoring?

Yes. Our Social Studies tutors are available for in-person and online tutoring. We work around your busy schedule and can meet you in person at your home or online. If online is more convenient, we can connect via Zoom, Google Meet, or FaceTime.

Do you follow Alberta’s Social Studies Curriculum?

Yes. Our dedication to your child’s academic growth is showcased by our alignment with Alberta’s Social Studies curriculum. At Calgary Home Tutoring, we ensure our Social Studies timetable is in accordance with Alberta’s standard for educational development.

What "teaching style" do your Social Studies Tutors use?

At Calgary Home Tutoring, our Social Studies tutors’ tutoring style concentrates on your child’s existing school curriculum. In addition, we emphasize lower grade-level development (if your child is falling behind academically). This aim is achieved by balancing your child’s current studies while supporting them in retaining their skills from past education.

Are your Social Studies tutors located in Calgary?

Yes, our Social Studies tutors are based in Calgary. We have experienced and qualified tutors available for both in-person and online training.

Will I have the same Social Studies tutor each time?

If the match is a good fit, yes. Sometimes, however, a particular tutor-student pair-up isn’t a good match. If such is the case for your assigned tutor, simply contact us, and we will ensure a new tutor is designated for your child. 

How much does Social Studies tutoring cost?

The price range of a Social Studies tutor varies. Generally, the price can fall between $20/hr - $100/hr, depending on your child’s needs and what you’re looking for in a tutor.

With over 15 years of experience, we have worked with a large number of students and their families, tutors, teachers, schools, social workers, and police officers. We know our curriculum very well, as well as requirements for acceptance into post secondary institutions. 

Tutoring is all 1-1. We work personally with the students and get to know their families. In some cases quite well. We are providing this service for a reason, and if those needs are not being met it is our job to make sure we fix that.
