Private Tutoring: Our Mission
Learnwright Education Centre aims to accomplish two things with its private tutoring services:
1. Fill learning gaps through remedial programs.
2. Foster learning growth through enriched and extracurricular programs.
The tutors of our centre determine the outcome that parents and their children want from the tutoring program and then work with the students to tailor-make a suitable and engaging curriculum. This means the following:
• Your child's preferred learning styles will be accommodated.
• The pace of the lessons will be suitable for your child.
• Your child's interests will be identified and incorporated.
• Each lesson will contain a variety of suitable and engaging activities.
Discussion concerning the curriculum will not only take place at the beginning of the first term.
Conferences and brainstorms regarding both progress and curriculum development will take place between the tutor and student regularly. The students of Learnwright Education are not only being given a say in the format and content of their curriculum; they are being given the opportunity to take ownership of their own learning. Furthermore, discussions and other activities that require student-teacher interaction will take place frequently during the sessions. The tutors of Learnwright Education Centre are coaches and they are also partners in learning: we look forward to learning the new stories, topics and viewpoints that your child will introduce us to.
We are as eager to learn with your child as you are to see progress in your child's learning. To enhance this learning experience, we develop meaningful relationships with the students through discussion, educational game play and other interactive activities.
Private 1:1 Sessions
Tutors of the private one-on-one sessions tailor-make curriculum according to their students' needs. The curriculum can be remedial, enriched or extracurricular (topics not covered in Ontario curriculum), and the individual lessons will include a variety of activities and exercises.
Students who register for the private tutoring program may sign up for either 1 hr or 1.5 hr sessions, and these sessions may take place either once or twice a week. Below are the costs:
1 Hour Sessions: once a week is $45 per session, or twice a week $40 per session
1.5 Hour Sessions: once a week is $67.50 per session, or twice a week $60 per session
Those who register for the private tutoring program will be asked to schedule a meeting with the administrator. During this meeting, the students' needs will be determined, allowing the administrator to then create an initial plan with the student's tutor. The tutoring plan – the curriculum – will then be continually revised to suit the student's developing needs and interests over the course of the term(s).
Our tutors are experienced in delivering lessons on the topics that make up the Secondary School Admissions Test. If you would like your child's private tutoring program to focus on the SSAT, please let the administrator know during your meeting.
Along with tutoring the SSAT material, Learnwright also runs mock SSAT tests for students who would like to try out the exam experience.
Children of the same age who require tutoring for the same subject are eligible for 2:1 tutoring. This means that two students will share each session.
When registering for private tutoring, circle 2:1 as your ratio preference and record the name of your child's friend, acquaintance or same-age sibling. Here are the different scheduling options and costs:
1 Hour Sessions: once a week is $35/person per session, or twice a week is $30/person per session
1.5 Hour Sessions: once a week is $52.50/person per session, or twice a week is $45/person per session
The two students who are registering for the 2:1 tutoring program will meet with the administrator at the same time. We therefore ask that the two parties involved have a discussion regarding their children's education needs before the application meeting takes place. An initial plan (curriculum) will be decided at the meeting and passed on to the tutor. The curriculum will then be continually revised to suit the students' developing needs and interests over the course of the term(s).
