I just wanted to thank-you and Kevin's teacher. I know you didn't have sample tests, but you were able to help Kevin understand a little more about the English Literacy Test. He feels much more confident now.
Having confidence is huge.
I just wanted to thank you for everything. You have made an incredible change in Kevin. He is much more confident this year and always wants to do things by himself.
You probably have a million frustrating situations a day. I just want to remind you how important you are in helping kids out of horrible messes, so you can see what a godsend you are.
Sometimes we forget to tell people what an awesome job they are doing.
This is me hugging you and saying thank you.
In September of 2014, I contacted Oxford Learning to inquire about reading assistance for my 6-yr-old. At home she showed an enthusiasm for books and a willingness to try to read, but lacked the expected skill level & confidence required by the school. We seemed to be progressing at a snails' pace and frustrations were running high. My daughter has always progressed at her own pace and I was sensing that the constant pressure and high expectation surrounding her would quickly deter her from the enjoyment of learning. I was also hesitant to seek outside assistance being a young family on a tight budget.
I was immediately impressed by the professionalism I received & was reassured that they were willing to work with me to establish a suitable payment schedule. It was such a huge relief that they understood my concerns. After the initial assessment, a custom tailored learning plan was developed & results were already being noticed after a few sessions. The way my daughter flourished in a short amount of time from a minimal reading level to a 3-4 reading level under the gentle guidance, caring & generosity that was extended to her through her teachers was remarkable.
She absolutely adores the staff she has worked with thus far & Meggi's sweet nature most of all. I am eternally grateful for all of their dedication and commend them on a job well done! In honour of our 2nd year anniversary, I wanted to share my experience with others & will continue to recommend Oxford Learning to parents in the same situation.
Thank you Meggi & the Oxford Learning team!
My daughter has had the hardest time grasping math. She has even had a teacher in her past give up and ask her to go read during math time. Oxford Learning Hamilton's management team have done an amazing job pin pointing my daughters strengths and weaknesses with their assessment system. By using her strengths, the teaching staff in just a few months has turned my daughter in the right direction towards success.
But the truth is, it has been just as gratifying for me seeing my daughter inspired again and filled with confidence, laughing and interacting with the other children and her new-found self esteem which makes her glow. As difficult as it can be affording the extra cost at times, it never crosses my mind to pull her out of Oxford Learning.
Because she was so defeated before attending Oxford Learning, it devastated me that nothing was helping her grasp mathematics. Now, my daughter Rebecca, is that girl that makes the room warm again when she smiles or laughs and has the confidence to take on each day without fear of being sent to read in a corner while the other children do their math. She is the little girl that has always made me proud, its just now, she has found her sense of pride. That moment is worth every penny.
Thank you to all the teachers at at Oxford Learning Hamilton (Teresa & Kelly) and to the new management, Meggi Chopra. This has been a wonderful experience so far. Thank you for everything!
You all make the difference!
Thank you. What a wonderful experience to see my child transform into a confident, outgoing person. Before starting at Oxford Learning Hamilton, my son was almost a year behind in reading. He was embarrassed that he wasn't picking up the same level readers as some of the other children in his class; then he met Miss Mary. Miss Mary and the other staff at Oxford Learning made him feel important and more than capable to learn and excel in his school work. My son has now exceeded his grade level and loves to read!
I cannot say enough good things about Oxford Learning Hamilton. Oxford Learning Hamilton is under new management and they are doing a wonderful job.
When I met with the owner, she was very pleasant and understanding. She gave me a tour of the centre, which looks great and even introduced me to her teachers. When my son came in for his assessment, he was very nervous and anxious because he did not know what to expect. Meggi (the owner) made him feel comfortable. My son even said that he enjoyed the assessment and loved working with Meggi.
She was able to pin-point the problems my son had in school and why he had those problems. She had customized a program to help him improve and showed me everything he’d be working on. I was impressed with how organized and detailed she was.
My son has been going to Oxford Learning Hamilton for over a month now and he has enjoyed every minute of it. He loves working with the teachers and with Meggi. I can already see a big improvement with his reading comprehension and his confidence. Enrolling my son at Oxford Hamilton was one of the best decisions I have made for him. I 100% recommend Oxford Learning Hamilton to any parent whose child is struggling in school.
Emma looks forward to going to Oxford Learning because she doesn't see it as schoolwork. Ms. Mary is a wonderful teacher. Emma loves her time with Ms. Mary. In only a few months, Emma has improved by a full reading level and is sounding out her words better. Her confidence has improved. Meggi, the owner is a wonderful lady as and very helpful. A great place for anyone to improve their learning. Thanks Oxford Learning!
My daughter was struggling with her reading and writing in October, 2015. I signed her up with Oxford Learning Hamilton and since she has started, she has gone up 5 levels in her reading. She now enjoys going to Oxford Learning and learning how to read and write.
Her teachers are great and they put effort and time into their students who all learn at different paces. The teachers have also built up my daughter’s confidence, as she was always scared to get the answers wrong.
Since Meggi (new management) has taken over, the place looks incredible. She is extremely friendly and caring. She has also made the environment more encouraging for the kids to learn! Oxford Learning is truly amazing and extremely helpful to anyone who needs help.
The staff at Oxford Learning are very friendly and I always feel better about my school work after a session with Erica! She helped me ‘ace’ chemistry and feel more confident. This is my second year attending Oxford Learning and I feel more organized, confident and on top of things. It’s very close by and a great place to come to have your questions answered regarding homework/course material…and the treats are always great of course!
Oxford Learning is very helpful. This is my second year coming here and I feel I am more confident in my work. I am stronger now in many subjects. Last year I was failing chemistry. I came to Oxford Learning and immediately improved scoring 95% on my next test and finishing the course with an 85%. Oxford Learning has also helped me with French. I now better understand the different parts of speech and how to apply them to my written work. This year I am attending Oxford Learning for assistance in Advanced Functions and Biology and am happy to say that I’m doing well in both classes. What I have most enjoyed about Oxford Learning is the friendly environment, the amount of attention I receive and the improvement I see in my marks and understanding of the subject matter. I’m always encouraging my friends to join. Thank you!
Coming to Oxford Learning has been extremely helpful for me. It provides me with a quiet learning environment and there is a small student to teacher ratio which ensures that my questions will always get answered. I have been very successful in math since starting here. The help Oxford Learning provides has helped me stay on track at school and helped me to keep my grades above average. I enjoy coming to Oxford Learning and would recommend coming here to anyone needing help, regardless of the subject matter.
The tutors at Oxford Learning understand me and that is what has made the experience here enjoyable. Coming to Oxford Learning has been extremely beneficial to me because unlike school, I feel better knowing you can just ask a person questions that properly understand you. The tutors at Oxford Learning have helped me become more confident and that made me join karate where I am now learning confidence, respect, responsibility and how to have FUN! Coming to Oxford Learning has put my Math and French marks off the charts and also helped me become more organized.
Oxford Learning has been extremely helpful to me as I work to become more familiar with the area I am currently seeking help for. Coming to Oxford Learning offers me piece of mind. I always know that I will be able to receive help on subject material that I do not understand.
I am delighted to be the new owner of the Hamilton Oxford Learning Centre! With 9 years of Human Resources experience, I love working with people and helping them reach their full potential. My love of teaching stems from over 15 years of working with children and adult learners. I have a Master’s degree in Sociology from Lakehead University and I am TESL certified. I have also recently completed my certificate in Adult Education. I am a pet lover who enjoys spending time with my family and friends, reading mystery novels and watching basketball games. As I will be at the Centre quite often, please introduce yourself! I would love to meet you and hear how Oxford Learning has helped your child learn and understand the world around them.
Oxford the fish, formally known as Ford Fish was an ace pilot and fighter. He lived on Lian Yu island in a small house in the trees. Ford used a light sword to fight in the war against the Khajit all over the multiverse. Ford’s race is called Betas; which look like walking fish with Mohawk fins. Ford and his troops went to fight the Khajits in the City of Carmen. Ford came in with several squads, most in planes, boats and on foot. The Betas won the battle by flooding the Khajits base and pushed them out of the city. Four years later, Ford got kidnapped by the enemy and was held in captivity for ten years. When Ford escaped, he retired to a place called Oxford Learning Hamilton to watch over the kids. - Written by Alex
