Tutoring by experienced and qualified tutors
All of our English tutors have a university degree, at least two years of tutoring experience and are familiar with the Canadian curriculum. We offer a variety of English tutoring programs. We not only offer homework support but also lessons that focus on building English skills; such as essay writing, reading comprehension strategies, basic writing skills, creative writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary development and punctuation. We believe that tutoring goes beyond homework help. Instead we want to teach our students the English skills that they need to be confident, independent and succeed in future assignments.
