One-to-one tutoring builds skills mastery

The Study Academy has a long tradition of providing superior one-to-one tutoring for capable students seeking to improve and enrich their daily classroom experience, troubleshoot problems, or consolidate basic skills. The strength of our program comes from 25 years of experience with all levels of Ontario Ministry curriculum, taught by gifted and engaged teachers. Our Instructors are ministry-certified teachers or have University degrees with expertise in their field, giving expert guidance to better instruct, inform, and inspire. We work cooperatively with schools, therapists, and parents to ensure that each student’s unique needs are effectively met. Our services are comprehensive, with all subjects taught at all levels, and additional support available in executive functions, essay writing, receptive and expressive language skills, and private school and university entrance preparation. Our tutors:

  • Work in direct communication with school teachers to build off and with the curriculum used during the school day
  • Use ministry guidelines or the International Baccalaureate (IB) program curriculum expectations to help support student learning
  • Provide executive functions training–teaching study skills, problem solving, and critical thinking
Human communities depend upon a diversity of talent, not a singular conception of ability … and at the heart of the challenge is to reconstitute our sense of ability and intelligence.”- Sir Ken Robinson, Professor Emeritus of Education, University of Warwick
