  • Kirsten and the team are very professional, understanding of the child’s needs and very accommodating with schedule planning. Tutors coming to your own home was an excellent bonus for us. We have worked with both French and English tutors in math, written comprehension, and reading, and have not been disappointed. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
    — Heather Davenport
  • Our experience so far has been excellent. There is satisfaction in knowing that each session offers thoroughness, professionalism and a positive attitude towards the learning process. An added bonus is the follow up emails describing the session topics and what the student’s understanding is of these topics. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
    — Tracey Woo
  • We feel very lucky to have found Pearson Academics. My son's grades have improved so drastically. His study skills have also improved. He scored over 80% on his finals, a 20% increase in Social and English, subjects he initially struggled with. 4 months of tutoring with Jesse has given my son the support, strategies and confidence he needed while entering his provincial exams. The tutors with Pearson Academics are great. Thank you so much! ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆

Who We Are

(Our Philosophies)

Academic Development

Academic development is Priority #1! We realize that every child is different and we cater to many different learning styles. Our tutors will work with your child to find what works best for them and we will do our best to pair students with the most suitable tutor. We set reasonable and achievable academic goals and mentor your children in how to maintain academic success in the future.

Personal Development

We believe it is important for your child to grow not only academically, but personally. Above and beyond basic tutoring, our tutors offer to improve time management, goal achievement, and disciplinary skills. Additionally, we strive to improve your child's self-confidence and assurance in their knowledge and skills.

Mentorship

Tutors help to bridge the gaps that sometimes exist between teachers and students, and students and parents. We don't believe in simply showing up to help your child with their homework, we believe in investing in them and their future. We assign extra homework and tasks that cater to the gaps in your child's knowledge and skills. At the end of their time with Pearson Academics, we want them to emerge confident, skilled children, proficient not only in their subjects but also in time management, organization, and goal achievement.

Relationships

Lastly, we believe in building a relationship with your family. We don't believe in sending tutors to your house once or twice a week who simply correct your child's homework. Our tutors are passionate about conveying knowledge and are dedicated to your child's success.

What We Do

Simply put - we teach, we mentor, and we care. We get results!
