At Home and online One-on-One Tutoring Services


Some children work best when they interact one on one with an experienced educator like one of our certified tutors. Our in-home one-on-one tutoring services in York Region allow us to work closely with a student to understand how they learn best, and then form a specially catered education plan.

Our tutors provide in-home tutoring so that your child can receive a personalized education in an environment in which they are comfortable.

If your child retains information better when they can collaborate and learn alongside another student, they may benefit from semi-private tutoring in York Region.

We offer group tutoring for students who thrive in a collaborative setting. Our group tutoring sessions accommodate groups of 3 to 6 students.

We will provide personalized education to help your child better relate and retain specific subject matter. Whether you need an English tutor in Richmond Hill or a math tutor in Aurora, we will match your child with a local tutor who boasts specialized knowledge in the subject that is causing them academic tension.


We provide tutoring services in York Region for the following subjects:

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

The tutors at Prep Academy Tutors are familiar with both the public and private school curriculum and can fill in any gaps in your child’s knowledge of course material.

Our tutors will cover curriculum material with your child before it is taught in the classroom so that your child can make better connections and be prepared for new topics and curriculum elements.

We provide a personalized approach to education to ensure that your child is retaining curriculum material that may not be presented in a way that they are responsive to. We work with your child to identify the best way to explain this material to them so that they can apply their knowledge in the classroom.

When your child can see the parallels between what we are teaching them and what they are learning in the classroom, they will be able to make connections and fill in any gaps in knowledge at their own pace.

This new understanding will also equip them with the confidence they need to interpret other source material in the classroom. Our tutors will revisit subjects or topics to ensure thorough comprehension of all curriculum material.

Standardized tests can cause stress and anxiety in students of all ages, which is why we offer test preparation services in York Region to ensure that your child feels equipped for their next exam, midterm, or quiz.
