We are a local Canadian tutoring company that provides exceptional customer service throughout the entire tutoring program.  Our Education Consultants are Canadian certified teachers.  They understand the requirements in the Canadian classroom and are able to put together a plan to help the student succeed.  Then we select the most qualified and experienced tutor.  We follow-up with you throughout the program to make sure that you are 100% happy with the student’s progress and to determine if any changes need to be made.


We are a Canadian online tutoring company that started in Vancouver, BC in 1999.  All of our tutors are located in Canada and are experienced with the local curriculum.  They all have at least a university degree and several years of tutoring experience.  Some of our tutors are Canadian certified teachers.  We have a strong team of local, professional and experienced tutors to help support our communities across Canada.  Find out more about Tutors on Call.


All of our students in grades K – 7 work with a Canadian certified teacher.  All of our online teachers are very experienced with the online platforms and have the expertise to keep the student engaged throughout the lesson.  Some of these online tutoring sessions are focused on the material that the student is covering in the classroom.  Most of the time, however, the focus is teaching fundamental skills in writing, reading comprehension and math.  This is especially a concern for parents who have seen their child fall behind over the last two years.  Oftentimes, these programs include homework if requested by the parents.


All of our students in grades 8 to university work with a tutor who has at least a university degree and several years of tutoring experience.  Some of our university level tutors even have a masters or PhD and have experience teaching at a university.  They are professional, reliable, qualified and very experienced at teaching the material.  We pride ourselves in hiring the best online tutors.  If you are not 100% happy you can request for someone else at any time.


We do things differently at Tutors on Call.  The student works with the same tutor for every lesson.  We understand the importance of the student building a strong working relationship with their tutor.  Only when this is the case can the tutor track the student’s progress, adjust their teaching style to how they learn, build momentum and keep the student accountable.  Oftentimes, our tutors become a mentor, which allows the student to increase their confidence and feel comfortable asking for help.  


One of the reasons why our online tutoring lessons are effective is because they are one-on-one and completely customized to the student.  They are not group lessons, self-paced courses or the student watching instructional videos.  We understand that for most students these are not effective.  Our online tutoring follows a similar structure to in-home lessons.  The student still has the same tutor for every lesson, the lessons are one-on-one, the tutor tracks the student’s progress and every lesson is customized to the student’s needs.  The only difference is that the tutor is not sitting next to the student.  With the combination of an experienced online tutor and advanced online tutoring technology the lessons are extremely effective for all grades and subjects.


At the beginning of each month you are emailed a monthly progress report.  It lists all of the lessons that have been taught, provides a summary of the student’s progress and indicates the material that is covered each lesson.  By having the same tutor throughout the program it allows the tutor to track the progress and determine any areas that require more attention.


We encourage consistent lessons.  A regular weekly tutoring schedule has proven to be the most successful and proactive approach.  This ensures that the student is on top of their assignments, fully understanding the course material and preparing for upcoming tests.

Proudly serving our Canadian communities for 23 years.

What online tutoring platforms do you use?

We use Zoom, Google Meet or Teams.  There is either a shared screen or an interactive whiteboard where the student and tutor can complete equations together, drag & drop assignments, add comments, and save the whiteboard as a pdf for future reference.

All of our tutors have extensive experience with the online tutoring platforms and can provide the necessary guidance to ensure the lessons go smoothly.  Over the last couple of years there has been many technological advances which has made online tutoring an effective option for all ages and subjects.

Do you offer online tutoring during the summer?

Absolutely!  The summer is a very popular time to have tutoring.  It is an excellent time to review the previous year’s curriculum in a specific area and be better prepared for next year’s material.  Some of our students also focus on building core writing or math skills.  This is especially important right now as many students have fallen behind over the last couple of years.

How do I contact you during my program?

It is very important to us that you can easily and quickly contact us.  We can be contacted by phone, email or text.

Can you invoice an organization?

Absolutely!  We have worked with many government and private organizations over the last 23 years.

Do you have tutors that specialize in university level courses?

Yes, we have tutors who have several years of tutoring experience at the university level.  These tutors have at least a university degree but most of them have a masters or PhD. 

Do I need to buy a package of hours?

No, we do not have packages.  We do not want to restrict our clients into having to finish a package of hours.  Instead, we want them to be free to stop the lessons at any time.

What equipment do I need?

You just need a computer, webcam and a strong internet connection.

Can you help with homework or do you use your own curriculum?

Most of our students request that the tutor focuses on what is being covered right now in the classroom.  This may include help with homework assignments, reteaching more difficult concepts and preparing for tests.  This extra support can help relieve stress and anxiety; and decrease the amount of time that is required to get through school work.

Online learning did not work for my son / daughter.  How is your online tutoring different?

Over the last two and a half years students participated in a variety of online group learning environments.  Oftentimes, it was a group lesson, self-paced learning or the parents are left doing most of the instruction.

One-on-one online tutoring is very different.  There is a dedicated tutor working privately with a student and each lesson is customized to the student’s requirements.  There is an interactive whiteboard and a video calling feature to ensure the student is engaged.  Also, our tutors are professionals with lots of online tutoring experience.  They know how to keep the student engaged and to ensure the lesson is effective.

How long have you been in business?

Tutors on Call started in Vancouver, BC in 1999 by a group of certified teachers.  As a local business, we hire only tutors who live in Canada and are experienced with the Canadian curriculum.  We are proud to continue to be Canada’s leading provider of online tutoring services.  Learn more about Tutors on Call.

How many lessons per week should the student have?

Most of our students have two lessons per week.  We typically suggest once a week if a student is getting above 80%, twice a week if it is between 65% – 80% and three times a week if it is below 60%.

Is there a trial lesson?

There is an initial one hour lesson. We want to make sure that you are 100% happy with the lessons before proceeding.
