Some students learn best when they have the support of another peer or student at a similar learning level. We offer semi-private tutoring for students who want to learn alongside a friend for additional support and relatability.

Semi-private tutoring can provide students with the encouragement, support, and collaboration they need to effectively interpret and retain information. Learning alongside someone else can provide a student with a sense of comradery and empowerment.

Group tutoring is a collaborative approach to education that allows students to bounce ideas off of one another, work together as a team, and form a sense of camaraderie. We offer group tutoring for groups of 3-6 students.

Sometimes certain subjects pose a bigger challenge than others based on a student’s unique style of learning and personal preferences. We provide subject-specific tutoring in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and surrounding areas.
