From in-home tutoring to in-class tutoring
We provide individual/group tutoring sessions in Mathematics, Science and Business subjects to students from Grade 4 up to University level.
For 1-on-1 tutoring, the tutor can focus on looking after one student at one time. This is the most effective way of tutoring and is usually intended for students who have been struggling in schools and need more attentive support. Class size is continuously getting bigger and school teachers do not have the time and recourses to take care of individual students. Our tutors will develop a customized plan for each individual student, based on their backgrounds, their own strengths and weaknesses, and the particular schools they are attending. We believe this could bring about the best results for our students. (Please see our testimonial page)
Yes, we can send tutors to your home! Most tutoring schools that have a tutoring centre or many even having multiple tutoring centres across GTA do not provide in-home tutoring. For students who find it not convenient to travel all the way to our centre, our tutors can come to your home. Our tutors’ schedules are flexible that they can tutor at your home right after you finish your school or after you finish your dinner. Our tutors also work on weekends. If you prefer to have tutoring sessions on Saturday mornings, or Sunday afternoons or evenings, talk to us and we can arrange. We also work on public holidays, especially if you have a test to write the following day. Sometimes tutoring at home may not be too convenient for some students, and our tutors can also tutor in public libraries or in a café. And of course, you are going to be tutored by the same tutor every time. Some tutoring companies will give students different tutors (whoever available) each time they have a session. We believe this is never the best arrangement. Each student will be appointed the tutor that we believe to be the best fit, and that tutor will take care of the student for the rest of his/her academic year and possibly in the future years.
Small Group Tutoring
Small Group Tutoring sessions can be effective. One condition, however, is that the group has to be “small”. A class of more than 5-6 students will not benefit students. It will only make them work unnecessarily longer with little or no improvement and make them less interested in the subjects. We have group of 2-4 students work together in small groups. This setting has been proven to be successful as students interact with each other and they are always more motivated to learn. Small group tutoring is a less costly and is particularly suitable for students who does not enjoy the school subjects possibly due to unpleasant learning experience in the past.
We have two tutoring centres, one located in North York and one in Richmond Hill. While some students find it more convenient to receive tutoring help at their own homes, others may prefer to come to our centre for their tutoring sessions. There are sometimes more distractions at home, and students could concentrate better when working with our tutors in our centres.
After-School Help (available in Richmond Hill centre only)
Students can come to us to study or to do their homework after school. The advantage over studying at home or in the library is that we have tutors to help students with their homework and study and possibly school projects, essays and ISU etc. If, say, the student finishes school at 3pm, they can come to our centre and do his homework, write his essay or study for his test with the help of our tutors at a very low cost. They can focus better, learn better, and improve better.

Our Virtual Tutoring Sessions offer students an experience that is extremely comparable to In-Person Tutoring Sessions (in-home or at-centre). This service allows us to help our students from anywhere – from the comfort and ease of their home, university or college – making this program a perfect fit for a student’s busy schedule. This program has been met with positive feedback from tutors, students, and parents. The virtual environment provides the opportunity for screen sharing, virtual annotation, and a shared virtual whiteboard using a variety of online tools. Students and tutors will meet face-to-face in a virtual setting using an application of their choice (e.g., Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Skype, etc). Students and tutors are able to share their screen to focus on specific subjects, questions, and explanations. Tutors can provide live lessons for students using both audio and visual tools (e.g., Notability, Miro, etc). Students can share their class notes and textbooks, and tutors are then able to facilitate explanations and solutions to students using virtual whiteboard tools. This type of program can provide a visual representation and enhanced understanding for our students in a variety of subjects at all levels of education. This well-organized collaborative virtual learning style can greatly enhance the way that tutors are able to interact with students in an online setting to ensure that students have a solid understanding of their material. In addition, Virtual Tutoring Sessions allow students to save a copy of all the material covered during tutoring sessions in an easy and organized way. Sessions can even be recorded and uploaded for students to listen to at a later date. This method of learning can completely meet the needs of all students and enhance any learning experience. Our Virtual Tutoring Sessions (similar to our Instant HW Help program) can complement In-Person sessions to ensure that students can continue to have sessions despite any difficult circumstances. This program has been especially helpful to University and College students who live away from home (i.e., outside of the GTA) and require additional help with their courses. Our tutors can help with a variety of University and College courses, including Math, Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), Accounting & Economics, English, and other Social Sciences courses (Psychology). As for students that are younger in age or with particular learning difficulties, our tutors are particularly strong at making them stay focused throughout our virtual tutoring sessions.

Instant Homework Help
- Tutoring-on-Demand – The moment you need tutoring help when doing your homework, be it an early morning or a late Sunday night, you can send us questions at instant.

Our Instant Homework Help allows us to help our students at any time, from anywhere, and almost instantly. This program is particularly useful for students to use in conjunction with our In-Person and Virtual Tutoring Sessions, as students can continue to receive help with specific questions after their sessions too. This program can be used on its own as well, specifically for students who would like regular help with specific homework or assignment questions. Our Instant HW Help program was launched in early 2019 and has already received a lot of positive feedback from both students and parents!
During our Instant HW Help sessions, students can provide tutors with specific questions via text. Once our tutors receive the question(s), we can instantly provide students with detailed explanations and solutions using written explanations, visual representations (e.g., graphs and calculations), and even audio and video recordings. This is particularly helpful for students in Math and Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) as we can provide customized step-by-step solutions to homework or assignment questions.
In order to sign-up for this program, students will need to subscribe to a reasonable monthly fee. This will allow students to ask as many questions as necessary on a variety of subjects throughout the month. The best part of this program is that our tutors can answer questions any day and at any time of day, enhancing the restrictions of typical business hours for tutors. Our Instant HW Help can complement the traditional In-Person or Virtual Tutoring sessions that students may require as well. In these cases, the Instant HW Help service will be offered at a discounted rate.
