We are absolutely thrilled with the Early Readers program. My daughter started in the summer when she was 3 and has continued with the program this year. When I asked my daughter what she wanted to do in the summer, she answered, "learn to read!" We found it challenging to find a program that taught academic material at her age -- until we found Oxford Learning! Everyone here is so kind, and they encourage her to succeed at her own pace. She is never pushed too hard, and she is never held back; it's a totally personalized program. She absolutely loves going to "reading school," and we are confident with the program and staff.
Our family was fortunate to find Shannon as she was opening up Oxford Learning in Beaumont. Our eldest boy has been attending since the center opened up and we have seen huge success with his confidence and his learning. This has helped him in school and outside activities. If we would not have found this program to put our son in, we don't know where he would be in his schooling success. His language arts has improved immensely, his math has improved and his overall attitude towards learning has opened up so much that he wants to learn more about other topics not being discussed or reviewed in school.
Thank you so much Oxford Learning for all your support for our eldest boy and our youngest! For being there for our family and supporting all aspects of their learning!
You are awesome and we greatly appreciate you and are very happy that you are opened in Beaumont - makes it easier to support our children's extra learning within our community.
No question about it - this is the place to go if you want to give your child / children the extra support that they need to succeed!
Confidence and school success
Absolutely thrilled. My daughter's reading level has gone up in 7 months, and her comprehension has gone up 2 reading levels.
That was since the start of the summer of 2016. When the fall came, all she wanted was to attend Oxford Learning on a regular basis. It is not a struggle to get her to go there. She loves everything that they offer, she wanted to go to school there and forget the regular system.
Thank you so much for all of the education she receives.
Improved reading skills
Nothing but great things to say about Oxford Learning. Awesome programs and really knowledgeable teachers.
Looking forward to seeing results with my teenagers grades and a boost in his confidence as well as he learns how to Learn.
Hi, my name is Ray. I joined Oxford Learning Beaumont in October of 2016 as Education Director and I am excited about helping you achieve your potential. After I finished my Master of Arts in Windsor, Ontario, I taught in Asia for almost 15 years. There I received my Canadian Teacher status from the Association of Christian Schools International. I love teaching English, Social Studies, and ESL. More than this, I truly believe that our team will help you achieve not only higher grades, but a lifelong love of learning and to become a more engaged and engaging person.
I love to play basketball, write short stories and non-fiction, and spend time with my wife and two children in my free time. I believe human beings show a remarkable power to get better not only at school, but at life, and so if I had a superpower, I would love to have the power to self-heal, like Wolverine from the Marvel comic book series.
Hi, my name is Holly. I have had the privilege of being a part of Oxford Learning Beaumont since November 2015. I am the Little Reader teacher and enjoy every moment that I get to be part of the awesome children that come to our classroom. I love teaching this program and thankful for the opportunity to be working in such a caring environment that children can build their learning skills and develop self-esteem and confidence.
I am a mom to three wonderful kids and was fortunate and blessed to have been able to stay home to nurture them and watch them grow for several years. We are a busy family and when I am not at the rink, gymnastic club, piano lessons, football field, lacrosse field, pool and music class I like to read a book, workout, visit with friends and watch movies. I enjoy our family vacations and spending time as a family.
Bonjour! Je m'appelle Anaïs et je travaille officiellement pour Oxford Learning depuis avril 2016. J'ai grandi à Saint-Antoine-de-Tilly, un petit village près de Québec, et j'ai déménagé à Edmonton en 2008 pour compléter un BSc à l'Université de l'Alberta. En octobre 2015, j'ai commencé à faire du tutorat en mathématiques et en français et à changer mon plan de carrière pour aller vers l'enseignement. J'adore aider mes élèves à comprendre leur propre raisonnement et à se questionner sur tout ce qu'ils apprennent. Ma philosophie d'Oxford Learning préférée dit qu'apprendre est en fait la quête de la vérité et c'est exactement ce que je veux enseigner aux élèves!
Lorsque je ne travaille pas, j'aime passer du temps avec mon mari, mes chats et mes amis. J'aime aussi beaucoup enseigner l'école du dimanche à GraceLife church et étudier la Bible dans mon temps libre. Si je pouvais donner un conseil à mes élèves, ce serait de demeurer ouvert d'esprit et de continuer à poser plusieurs questions pour mieux connaître le monde, afin de comprendre vraiment ce qui les mènera à développer leur plein potentiel.
Hi! My name is Anaïs and I officially joined Oxford Learning in April 2016. I grew up in Saint-Antoine-de-Tilly, a small village near Quebec city, and moved to Edmonton in 2008 to complete a BSc at the University of Alberta. I started tutoring Math and French in October 2015 and began changing my career path toward education. I love helping students to become more aware of their own thinking and to question themselves about what they are learning. My favorite Oxford Learning philosophy is that learning is about searching for truth and that is what I want to encourage students to do!
When I am not working, I love spending time with my husband, my cats and my friends. I also really enjoy teaching Sunday school at Grace Life church and studying the Bible in my free time. If I could give one piece of advice to my students, it would be to continue to be open-minded, to ask questions and to always try to make sense of the world around them so that they can come to understand the true meaning of achieving their highest potential.
Hello, my name is Nadine. I first started working at Oxford Learning Beaumont in September 2016 and I really enjoy being here. I like the friendly team and the atmosphere of positivity. I am originally from Germany where I have worked as an Elementary school teacher for 5 years. I mainly taught grades 3 and 4 and I love my job. The best part is seeing how much fun learning can be and how it can change so much in a person. Also, it amazes me how much potential kids show when they are being encouraged and supported.
Since September of last year, I have been in Canada. It has been an amazing, interesting and sometimes challenging time for me so far and I really appreciate the Canadian friendliness. I love hiking, spending time outside, travelling, cooking, baking and reading. If I had a superpower, I would love to be able to fly. When I was a kid, I dreamed of having this ability so many times and it felt awesome.
Hello! My name is Gurpreet. I have been with the Beaumont Oxford learning centre since October of 2015 as an English and Social teacher. I recently graduated from the University of Alberta with my Bachelor of Education degree, majoring in Social Studies and minoring in Human Sciences.
During my free time I love to powerlift, train my dogs and play soccer. I also teach dance and am a makeup artist.
If I had a super power, it would probably be teleportation so I could go anywhere I wanted.
I have worked with students of all ages during my practicums and during my time at Oxford Learning, both of which have been really rewarding. I look forward to working with you to help you reach your goals!
Hi there! My name is Janelle, and I joined Oxford Learning in July of 2016 because I love to help students realize their full potential and to grow in confidence. I am finishing two degrees at the University of Alberta this year, and will graduate with a Bachelor of Science specializing in Biology and physical sciences, as well as a Bachelor of Secondary Education. I enjoy teaching students of all ages, and I get especially excited about helping student to make sense of biology, chemistry, physics, and math. There are so many cool things to discover about the world around us!
In my free time, I like to go hiking or play disc golf with my husband and our German Shepherd puppy. I also enjoy music, reading, painting, and I am trained as a henna artist! I look forward to meeting new students and helping them to discover a passion for learning, and to gain confidence in overcoming their struggles, all while having a bit of fun in the process. Learning is a part of life that opens doors and allows us all to continually become better, and I love to help students see the joy and possibilities before them.
Longer days and warmer weather is finally upon us; have you considered your summer plans? We know that students can lose learning momentum in the summer, so it’s important to have a summer action plan to prevent the summer “brain drain.” Even a couple of hours a week of learning can prevent summer education losses.
Our programs are customized to suit your child’s specific needs. Summer is an excellent opportunity for students of all ages to catch up, keep up, or get ahead.
Over the summer:
Students can lose up to 6 weeks of learning skills.
Facts and skills are forgotten and require a significant amount of review when students return to school in the fall
Students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computational skills.
Summer is a GREAT time to catch up and fill in gaps that were holding students back in the previous school year.
Call or stop in today to find out about our summer discounts! Together we will create a summer program that fits your family’s busy summer schedule and unique educational needs.
We look forward to having a great summer together!
Your Beaumont Oxford Learning
SUMMER LEARNING FOR BEYOND TUTORING, EN FRANÇAIS, AND ADVANTAGE STUDENTS
To determine how your child learns, and which core skills they need the most assistance with, we start with a Dynamic Assessment. It is a comprehensive assessment used both to provide a reliable picture of your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and a starting point to plan how we can best help.
Using the results of the Dynamic Assessment, our program will challenge him/her at an appropriate pace: never too fast or too slow. We use proprietary curriculum to build key learning skills that will help your child gain confidence and get better grades in all subject areas. In other words, our programs suit your child’s unique learning and academic needs!
Classes are kept small (maximum of 3 students), so students receive individual attention, while learning how to focus and ignore distractions. Our summer schedule is flexible with day time and afternoon/evening sessions.
Daytime sessions: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9AM-12PM
Afternoon sessions: Tuesday, and Thursday from 3-7PM
*Hours are subject to change based on demand
LITTLE READERS SUMMER PROGRAM

Our small classes and individualized programs are a fun way to enhance early reading skills! Little Readers operates all year so we welcome you to come by and see how fun learning can be!
