What Makes The Tutor Group Different?

A tutor helps a student work on some problems.
Our personalized, one-on-one tutorials typically happen in the family home or student’s school* and our tutors are comfortable liaising with teachers or other professionals (consent required).
This approach offers many advantages:
  • New students feel more comfortable on familiar turf. This allows our tutors to develop and strengthen the personal connection that makes our approach especially effective.
  • Our tutors can model – and then monitor – study and organizational skills in real time within a student’s actual study space, with materials and supplies close at hand.
  • Ongoing communication and feedback happens naturally and often, but also respects older students’ need for independence and “personal space”.
  • Last but not least, families need not worry about transportation logistics, which reduces everyone’s stress!

* For older students or in special circumstances,
ask us about tutoring in other settings.




What We Do Well

We provide tutoring support in a wide variety of traditional Core subjects for most grade levels and ages. We can also support young adults and lifelong learners in a variety of ways. Support for all ages is also available across the curriculum for Study and Organization Skills, Essay Writing, Project and Time Management etc.

Test Preparation (Test Prep or Test Tips) can help students who struggle to “show what they know” in classroom testing or exam situations. Support is also offered for standardized tests such as EQAO Grades 3, 6, 9 and OSSLT Grade 10, private school entrance exams like the SSAT, and high-stakes testing for post-secondary and graduate programs including GED, PSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, GRE, IELTS, TOEFL, etc. Our experience in test-taking and personalized guidance gives students and standard test takers an added advantage using targeted practice, and provide an insider’s look into test design including twists and tricks.

There can be no true teaching without first reaching a student – and those who attempt to get there by preaching soon negate both.

Choosing the best school requires plenty of consumer research, plus a willingness to compromise and settle. It’s not unlike choosing a job, spouse or home. To paraphrase the rock legend Mick Jagger: you can’t always get what you want – so you must know what your child truly needs. An education consultation can clarify which school features are absolute musts, versus those you’d prefer but are not essential. It will also remind you that anything else should be seen as a bonus.
