At-Home and Online Tutoring Services


Your child already has a teacher who stands at the front of the classroom and provides general education on curriculum material. Our tutors at Prep Academy Tutors revisit any gaps in student knowledge to ensure comprehension of material that may not have resonated with the student in the first place.

We like to think of ourselves as a student’s “smart friend” who can explain things in a way they understand, in a more comfortable and low-stress environment. Our one-on-one tutoring will provide your child with personalized education in a low-pressure environment away from school.

Our tutors give students the one-on-one attention they need to better understand content and boost their confidence to set and reach academic goals. By removing the pressure of time limits and other students, we are able to help students to better grasp challenging topics and prepare them to interpret information in a classroom setting.

We offer semi-private tutoring in Ottawa so that, if your child has a friend who can also benefit from tutoring, the pair can learn side by side and encourage each other on their path towards academic success.

It is common for students to thrive in situations where they have the support of another individual at a similar learning stage that they can relate to and talk challenging concepts over with. 

Our semi-private tutoring allows students to benefit from privatized education, as well as the advantages of being able to put two heads together.

Prep Academy Tutoring offers group tutoring for groups of 3-6 students. Group tutoring involves less privacy than one-on-one tutoring but provides the benefits of collaborative group learning. Group learning can encourage and empower students on their respective journeys to reaching academic success.

Whether your child needs a science or math tutor in Ottawa, we can help. Prep Academy Tutors of Ottawa includes tutors equipped with the right specialized subject-based knowledge. If your child is struggling with a specific subject area, we can pair them with a tutor who has specialized knowledge in the subject and can explain things in a way that your child can better understand.


We offer subject-focused tutoring for the following 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)

The majority of public schools in Ottawa are under the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and follow the curriculum established by the Ontario Ministry of Education. 

Our certified teachers are well versed in curriculum material, and provide our students with curriculum-based tutoring to help them better interpret information in the classroom and with enhanced confidence.

When students receive tutoring based on their current classroom curriculum, they can make connections between what they are learning at home and in the classroom. We cover curriculum material before it is taught in the classroom so that students can get ahead and be prepared to tackle new source material with confidence. 

Our tutors will revisit any parts in the curriculum to fill in any gaps in a student’s knowledge. Learn more about our approach to curriculum-based learning today.

Standardized tests can cause feelings of stress and anxiety among students. We offer test preparation services to help Ottawa students more confidently approach tests. Our test preparation services provide students with the tools to prepare for and write tests, reduce their exam-related stresses, and approach tests with confidence. We help prepare students for EQAO, the SAT, SSAT, and more.

Enrichment Programs:

 Tutoring isn’t only for remediation. We offer enrichment tutoring in Ottawa for students looking to get ahead, learn about a specific subject, learn a new language, or those just looking to streamline their academic journey.

 Our enrichment programs are for students between the ages of 2 – 24. Empower students and broaden their minds, learn more about our enrichment tutoring services today.


Remedial Programs:

Prep Academy Tutors believes that every student can achieve academic success when equipped with the right educational tools and resources. We offer two remediation programs that are designed with the struggling student in mind.

It can feel discouraging for a student when they are behind in the classroom, and our programs provide students with the one-one-on attention and specialized education they need to get on track and gain confidence in their academic abilities. Find out which of our remediation programs in Ottawa is best suited to your child.


The Direct Instruction Reading Mastery Program: Our reading mastery program is designed with the needs of students with reading comprehension challenges in mind. By utilizing lesson plans that are carefully developed and scripted, we cover reading skills in increments. By combining this direct instruction model of teaching with one-on-one tutoring in Ottawa, we help students improve their reading comprehension effectively, and efficiently.


The Wilson Reading Program: We offer a Wilson Reading program that is focused on the specific educational needs of students with dyslexia or other language-based learning disabilities. Through this program, we approach literacy with the Orton-Gillingham approach. This is the concept of using multi-sensory instruction (reading, sound, sight, listening and writing) to help children solidify an understanding of fluency and literacy.
