What We Do

Our community of tutors is comprised of university students, teachers, professionals, trades people, and retired persons. Many have English as a Second Language training and experience. During recent years we have found that the caliber of our English tutors and math tutors continues to improve steadily – matching increasingly complex learner needs.

All of our tutors receive training and on-going support to ensure they have the necessary tools to help learners achieve their personal, academic or vocational goals.

At any time we have more than 100 active tutor learner matches.

The ability to communicate with fellow citizens, keep a job or secure a new one, enroll in higher education or overcome a dependency on social assistance, have been important milestones achieved by many of our learners.

Project Literacy learners receive assistance with:

  • Basic reading, writing and math skills;
