    One-on-one tutoring near you

    As tutoring services become more popular, the number of tutoring centres is rapidly expanding. Below, find a one-on-one tutoring program in a city or town near you.



    You might also like

    Individual or one-on-one tutoring can be a great way to provide academic support for your child. This isn’t the only way to do so, though. A few other options are highlighted below.

    Tutoring and learning centres: offer individual and group tutoring. May also offer other programs, such as exam preparation, keyboarding, reading, writing, and math.

    Group tutoring programs: provide academic support in a group setting, with sizes normally ranging from two to ten students. 

    Education programs: offer out-of-school learning and enrichment in areas such as science, STEM, engineering, public speaking, and robotics.

    What tutoring programs do

    Tutoring programs provide academic support for kids of all ages, from preschool to high school. Whether your child is struggling in school, looking to get straight As, or needs enrichment, parents often turn to tutors for a wide range of support and services. 

    Tutoring centres help students with homework, assignments, tests, and any school work. They can also help your child with their study skills, such as test-taking, note-taking, time-management, communication, concentration, organization, and more. 

    At tutoring programs, individual and group instruction is offered in all subjects, from math to language to art. They provide support in these subjects and tailor instruction to meet the needs of each student. 

    One-on-one tutoring

    Almost all tutoring and learning centres offer one-on-one or individual tutoring. Unlike group tutoring, individual tutors work with only one student at a time. This means the goals of each tutoring session can be designed to meet the specific needs of your child. 

    In one-on-one tutoring, instructors are normally experienced and have strong teaching credentials. They use a variety of strategies to help your child achieve their goals, such as individualized instruction, graduated instruction, and learning assessments. 

    The benefits of one-on-one tutoring

    While group tutoring programs work for many students, individual tutoring has a number of distinct advantages. Below, we discuss some of the main ones (source: What are the Benefits of Tutoring?).

    1. Individual and unique learning experience
    Your child will receive an individualized learning experience they can’t always get in a classroom setting. Tutors can customize lessons and activities for them.

    2. One-on-one attention
    Tutors get to know your child’s individual learning style, and can adapt teaching methods accordingly. They act as your child’s own private teacher

    3. Improving academic performance
    Tutoring will prepare your child for tests and exams, while tutors work with your child on specific areas. Your child’s understanding of, and often grades for, specific subjects can significantly improve.

    4. Improving attitude towards learning and school
    Learning often becomes fun for your child when working with a private tutor. With continual encouragement and praise, your child will less frequently feel overwhelmed or frustrated with school.

    5. Improving confidence and self-esteem
    Your child’s self-esteem and confidence will increase through tutoring. They’ll be given the resources and skills they need to excel in school.

    6. Focused workplace
    Tutoring provides an environment free of distractions, with fewer students and disruptions, so your child is better able to focus on learning.

    7. Encouraging independence and responsibility
    Your child may improve their ability to do school work on their own, without your help, as a result of one-on-one tutoring. Seeing this growth will often allow them to take more responsibility for their studies.

    8. Overcoming learning obstacles
    Your child’s tutor can target whichever aspect of learning your child is having trouble with, whether it’s writing, math, language, or reading.

    These aren’t the only benefits of tutoring, though. Others include:

    • Encouraging the freedom to ask questions
    • Getting frequent feedback
    • Increasing the ability to manage one’s learning
    • Receiving challenge and stimulation
    • Preparing for college or university
    • Improving social and behavioural skills
    • Pursuing a passion

    Choosing the best tutoring program for your child

    When looking for a one-on-one tutoring program, you’ll need to focus on what’s important to you. This may include location, cost, teaching approach, and flexible scheduling, among other things. 

    A great place to begin this search is at the Our Kids Camp and Program Expo, held each winter in Toronto. At the expo, you can speak directly with those who run tutoring programs. If you’re interested, you can also speak with the staff of many other types of after-school programs and camps

    For further guidance on choosing the right tutoring program for your child, check out the following Our Kids resources: How to choose a camp, Tutoring program reviews, and Educational programs.

    Make sure you've found the right program

    After doing some initial research, you should narrow down a list of one-on-one tutoring programs potentially suitable for your child. Make sure to ask questions that are most relevant to your child. You might start with some of the following:

    Questions to ask individual tutoring programs

    • What subjects do you offer tutoring in?
    • Who are your tutors and what are their credentials?
    • What is your instructional approach?
    • How exactly do you individualize instruction?
    • Do you offer academic assessments?
    • How do you assess student progress?
    • Do you work on study skills?
    • Do you provide test preparation?
