We offer a range of individualized programs to strengthen, maintain or attain academic excellence. Our programs are tailor-made for each child to improve reading, writing, and math skills, or to address the needs in a specific subject like History, Biology, or Calculus. We also provide specialized remedial instruction for children who have a learning disability or a specific learning style. Among our other services are homework support, study skills, coaching/mentoring, and exam preparation for private schools.
Reading: Whether your child is learning to read, or reading to learn, our reading programs are specially designed to address any or all of the following skills: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
Writing: We provide grade-appropriate and needs-appropriate instruction in the following foundation skills: sentence structure, paragraphing, grammar, spelling, the writing process, development of essays and other forms of writing.
Math: Through the use of manipulatives, games, pencil and paper, and other instructional approaches, we help young students learn basic math concepts and facts. We provide instruction for elementary pupils for all strands identified by the Ontario Ministry of Education curricula guidelines. To name a few, concepts are related to numeration, computation, fractions, decimals, percentages, measurement, geometry, and problem solving. For highschool students, our focus is to teach, review, and reinforce the more challenging aspects of the math curriculum, such as algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calculus.
Effective study skills will improve a student’s ability to learn in all subject areas, and therefore achieve academic success.
Topics covered in study-skills tutorials include:
- How to study effectively
- How to write good notes
- How to manage time
- How to build memory
- How to edit your work

Students are closely monitored to ensure that they are applying these skills in their independent study time.
