Our Markham tutoring company operates as a franchise of the well-established, B.C.-based agency, School is Easy Tutoring. With our arsenal of quality tutors certified as teachers, we have found an approach to tutoring that meets the needs of the parents who call us time and again, asking: “My child is falling behind. Please help. My teenager wants to go to University. Please help my kid get the highest GPA that they are capable of.”
It happens in Math, English, Science, Social Studies, French Immersion, ESL, with special needs students, and even in gifted education programs. When a child is struggling in school, they need someone who understands both the modern classroom they’re in, and the many angles a subject can be taught from, while staying within curriculum requirements.
To this end, our service aims to personalize education with certified teachers as tutors in Markham, Richmond Hill and Stouffville. And, through our franchise network, we can connect you to tutors in Mississauga, Toronto and other Canadian cities.
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to tutoring
A personal, in-home tutor can help your child in more ways than you thought possible. We have found that often, it’s not that the student isn’t able to comprehend the subject they’re failing in; it’s about how it’s being taught.
We pay attention to things like:
- What are the distractions preventing the student from focusing at school?
- Where are the exact hurdles that make a subject too difficult to overcome?
- What does the student already ‘get’ that we can use to explain things further?
- How is the home environment affecting their study routine?
- What is their current study routine?
- What interests does the student have that we can use to teach a subject in a new way?
- What if the problem is an unnoticed learning disability?
When you start looking for answers to the questions noted above, you start to realize that each student we tutor is a specific case that can’t be duplicated. It takes perception, experience and education to be able to reach the ‘breakthrough’ point with a child struggling in school. It also takes getting to know them in an one-on-one tutoring setting.
Once that breakthrough happens, though, you may notice an acceleration of learning within a student. We believe it’s when students feel like they can do it, they become motivated to do well in school. That motivation is key to success in academics.
Very talented individuals can easily slip through the cracks. It’s not because they’re not smart. It’s just that school isn’t being presented to them in a way they can ‘cling’ to. Our goal is to make school easy, and enjoyable, for all the students we tutor.
