Why In-Home Private Tutoring?

A student feels most at ease and free to express ideas at home. The home environment is familiar and comfortable, which promotes confidence and creativity. There are fewer distractions and no need to feel "put on the spot". My goal is to reduce your stress regarding your child's educational needs, but also to free you from having to drive to yet another activity!

Although I believe home is the ideal location for tutoring, sometimes it works to the family's advantage for the session to be held at a location such as the public library.

*During this time of social distancing all lessons are conducted online until further notice.


One session per week is necessary to establish routine, keep students on track and develop strategies to achieve success. Depending on your child's needs, I may be willing to meet twice a week. Book near the beginning of the school year to reserve the most convenient time for you. Book your summer sessions in May or early June.


For each session, I will either prepare a lesson specific to your student's needs and/or assist with any assignments brought to the session. I recommend starting primary students with half-hour sessions, and older students with one-hour sessions.

For online lessons during COVID 19:

$25 per half hour

$40 per hour

I require advance payment by e-transfer or cheque at the beginning of the month.

I look forward to meeting with you and utilizing my skills

and experience to assist your child with strategies for success!
