Janyce Lastman, LL.B.

at The Tutor Group

Janyce Lastman is an education consultant and case manager. She founded The Tutor Group™ in 1979 after winding down a busy personal tutoring practice. As director, she hires and supervises TTG's network of dedicated and creative professional tutors who support students taking a wide variety of subjects from a range of grade and age levels. TTG tutors have diverse and extensive teaching, tutoring and life experiences and very much enjoy their work with their students. As a result, a few have been with the company almost as long as she has!

In addition to working with typical students, Janyce specializes in helping younger, pre-teen and teenage students considered at-risk, high risk or who have varied special needs.

She has also advised students, parents and professionals on appropriate school placements and related education matters since 1985.

Active in various education and parenting organizations, Janyce is a former director of TLRC Canada: The Canadian Association of Toy Libraries and Parent Resource Centres. She was co-founder and Shows Coordinator for SchoolsExpos '92 to '95, an annual three-day education fair and symposium for families and professionals. She co-founded the Canadian Hyperlexia Association in 1995, and keeps current with a variety of special needs. Her law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School assists her involvement with education law matters and children's/parents' rights and responsibilities, though she does not practice law and cannot give legal advice.

Janyce leads courses and seminars for parents, public interest groups and educators on a wide variety of topics, and has spoken on How to Choose a School alone almost 100 times. She is the author of two books, along with numerous print articles, guides and curriculum packages, as well as on-line professional articles and book reviews.

Janyce sees a select group of students individually for intensive remediation or enrichment, as well as for her popular Test Tips and Hands-On Test Practice Programs, including Wha...SSAT??!!?? for SSAT and various school entrance tests, plus SAT, ACT, LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, etc. for older students. Specialized Core Tutoring for test prep students can also be provided by TTG tutors under her guidance. Janyce teaches annual in-school mini-courses in Test Taking, Organizational and Study Skills for classes from Grades 4 - 10.
