We match learners with trained learning coaches for free one-on-one tutoring in Reading, Writing and Math up to a Grade 9 level. 

Want to learn?

Do you or an adult you know need help with reading, writing, or help with math?  Maybe you’d like to be able to help your child with homework or fill out forms and read the newspaper.  We can help!

We can do a  skills assessment with you, and help place you with a learning coach to help reach your goals.  We recognize that some adults may not have had the opportunity to learn effectively and in their own way.  There may be a lack of confidence, and perhaps other barriers to
learning .  Our consultations are completely personal and confidential. 

Any adult 18 years or older who meet the program requirements can access these services for free.

Adults who are struggling with literacy skills can come to us on their own or may be referred to us
from other organizations. We try our best to accommodate any adult with a learning need and a desire to work on those skills.  The benefits of working on these skills reach far beyond English or Math.  There are happiness, confidence and health benefits that are realized for an engaged and motivated Learner.

Our goal is to help adults who struggle with literacy to become more confident and skilled and thus able to function more effectively in today’s world.

Want to tutor?

We want to talk to you!  We are looking for tutors who would like to help other adults in the community with English as an Additional language, reading, writing, math, apprenticeships or computers and technology.
