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.
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.
Hi! My name is Alimou, and I joined oxford in October 2016. I’m truly excited to help you build a long-term, solid learning base. I am a University of Alberta (Campus Saint Jean), third-year Education student who has plenty of experience working, teaching, and communicating with children. I bring with me previous tutoring, coaching youth basketball, and volunteering with the Big Brother and Big Sister organizations as experience. As well, I am francophone and am majoring in elementary francophone/immersion education.
In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball and bowling with my friends. I also love to spend time with my family and my 2 cats. I believe that education is a much better safeguard of liberty than a standing army. Therefore, if I could wish you one super power, it would be to be highly educated because that is the KEY (Keep Educating Yourself) to everything in this world.
Salut! Je m'appelle Alimou. J'ai rejoint Oxford Learning en octobre 2016. Je suis vraiment heureux de pouvoir vous aider à bâtir une base d'apprentissage solide et à long terme. Je suis actuellement un étudiant de troisième année à l'Université de l'Alberta (Campus Saint-Jean). J'ai beaucoup d'expérience dans le milieu d'enseignement et de communication avec les enfants. Dans mes années précédentes, j'ai eu la chance de travailler avec plusieurs jeunes en tant que tuteur. J'ai aussi eu la chance d'entraîner quelques équipes de basketball avec des jeunes du secondaire. De plus, le programme de bénévolat Grands-Frères Grandes-Sœurs m'a permit d'être un model pour plusieurs enfants qui en avaient besoin.
Dans mon temps libre, j'adore jouer au basket-ball et au bowling avec mes amis. J'aime aussi passer du temps avec ma famille ainsi qu'avec mes 2 chats. Je crois fortement que l'éducation est un meilleur gardien de liberté qu'une armée. Sur ce fait, si je dois vous souhaiter une puissance surnaturelle, celle-ci serait d'être bien éduqué parce que c'est la clé à toute chose dans ce monde.
