One-On-One Tutoring at home and online


Our one-on-one at-home tutoring provides students in North Toronto with the chance to receive personalized education in an atmosphere that is familiar and comfortable. Our tutors work closely with your child to get to know them and their learning style so that they can create a personalized education plan.

We offer at-home tutoring so that your child can learn at their own pace, and in a non-judgmental and compassionate learning environment. Our tutors act as a “smart friend” who explains things in a way that is easy to understand, and can provide your child with the support and confidence they need to set and reach academic goals.

If your child has a friend who is also interested in pursuing personalized education, you can utilize our semi-private tutoring services in North Toronto.

Our semi-private tutoring allows students to build a sense of camaraderie with one another, while also providing them with a more focused education.

Prep Academy Tutors offers group tutoring services for groups of 3-6 students. Group tutoring allows us to teach students in a collaborative setting that thrives off of teamwork and encouragement. 

Certain subjects can be challenging for students due to their learning abilities, how they retain information, and even their personal preferences. This is why we have tutors for specific subjects that may be a point of struggle for students.

Whether you are seeking an English tutor, science tutor, or math tutor in Toronto, we will pair your child with a tutor who boasts specialized knowledge of the subject matter they require assistance with. 

Prep Academy Tutors of North Toronto offers subject tutoring in Bedford Park, Teddington Park, Wanless Park, Lytton Park, North Toronto, Lawrence Park, Allenby, Armour Heights, Hoggs Hollow, Cricket Club, and York Mills.


We offer tutoring in North Toronto for a wide variety of subjects:

 ● Science (Physics, Biology, Chemistry, General Science, Computer Science)

● Social Studies (Philosophy, History, Geography, Civics)

● Mathematics (General Mathematics, Algebra & Geometry, Calculus & Vectors, Data Management, Advanced Functions)

● English (Essay Writing, Reading, Literature, Writing Skills)

● Languages (Spanish, Mandarin, French, Italian)

Schools under the Toronto District School Board provide education based on curriculum outlined by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Our North Toronto tutors work alongside this curriculum to provide students with the tools they need to catch up with their peers in the classroom and better grasp any tough concept as they arise.

By providing curriculum-specific education we can prepare students and give them the tools they need to confidently approach classroom education. This also allows them to make connections between what they are learning at home and in the classroom.

Our tutors can answer any of your child’s questions regarding classroom subject matter, and also teach them subject matter before it’s even covered at school. We will revisit any challenging subject matter to fill in any gaps in their knowledge, and to help them keep up with their classmates.

It is hard for teachers to revisit curriculum subject matter when every student learns in different ways and at a different pace.

We work closely with your child to get to know them and provide them with any needed support, supplemental exercises, and instruction, to help them grow and progress on their learning journey.

Prep Academy Tutors provides curriculum-based learning through personalized tutoring. Whether you require tutoring services in Lawrence Park, Hoggs Hollow, Bedford Park, Lytton Park, York Mills, Don Mills, Nortown or Glen Park, Prep Academy Tutors will connect you with a certified tutor in North Toronto.

Enrichment Programs:

Tutoring is not only used for academic remediation. Our enrichment programs challenge students by providing them with the option to get ahead, expand their knowledge, and take control of their academic journey.  

We offer enrichment programs for students aged 4-24 who are looking to fast-track their education and learn new subject matter.. We strongly believe language skills are essential for academic and career success, which is why we offer enrichment courses for languages including French, Spanish, Hebrew and Spanish in North Toronto.
