The sunshine has us thinking warm, bright thoughts!
Have you considered your summer plans yet?
Students experience summer brain drain when the learning momentum isn't kept up
Up to 30% of the material learned during the school year can be lost over the break
The brain shouldn't shut off because school is out
Teachers spend 4-6 weeks re-teaching material at the start of the next school year
Even a couple hours of learning each week can make a significant difference
Summer is a GREAT time to catch up and fill in gaps that were holding students back in the previous school year
Oxford Learning London North is introducing the EARLY BIRD SUMMER SPECIAL this year.
Purchase your summer package before June 1st, 2017 and receive $50 off! PLUS be entered into a draw for a family fun night prize package!

My wife an I would like to thank you, Ms. Crystal and the rest of the Oxford Learning staff at the London North centre. We have entrusted two of our daughters' reading development to Oxford Learning's Little Reader program with great success. In both cases of our daughters started the program with no reading capability and after 10 months in your Little Reader program can read! Both of our daughters now love to read and read at a level above their classmates at school. We are thrilled with the results and recommend your program for any parent wanting to give the gift of literacy to their kids.
Thanks again, we greatly appreciate the contributions you have made for our kids.
All the best,
Tony and Erin Mara

I'm doing an online toolkit that helps students with skills and such. I'm doing one about note taking and it made me laugh when the first thing on the first slide was SQRCRC. So much of what was in it were things that you introduce at Oxford Learning, like concentration and positivity and being an active listener.
Just thought I'd share that you are getting kids ready with info that some university students are just learning now!
Hope all is well,
Oxford Learning Staff,
Thank you so much for helping me reach my goals and success! Being at Oxford Learning has definitely raised my confidence in my learning, as well as my everyday life. Also, thank you for being a part of my 'pick-up' point when I was struggling with my learning. There wasn't one day that I didn't want to come to Oxford because you all make work fun. I love knowing that you enjoy working with others to make them successful!
Thank you again,
Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Justine Pitt and I am the Centre Manager for London North. I was born and raised in London, Ontario and am a proud Western Alum! I am a graduate of the Childhood and Social Institutions program at King's University, class of 2010, with an Honours Bachelor Degree. Upon completing school I ventured off to Australia where I travelled and worked for a few months before returning to Canada where I taught English as a Second Language in Quebec. In my free time you can find me walking my dog, laughing at my own jokes, or at the Revkor studio! Being a member of the Oxford Learning team is an incredible experience and I can't wait to work with everyone to reach success together!
Hi There! I’m Jena; a recent graduate of the Child and Youth Worker program. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Oxford Learning team. Helping children discover the endless opportunities that come from learning is the most fulfilling part of my job!

I look forward to working with your children and making learning fun.
In case we haven’t met yet, my name is Natalie and I am the Education Coordinator at Oxford Learning London North. I have been working in a leadership capacity with children for 14 years. My educational background is a BA in Human Services. I am currently working towards completion of my HON BA in Psychology, at York University.

I was born here in London, Ontario. I attended Oakridge Secondary, and went on to the University of Western Ontario. I graduated with a business degree and a minor in football. Actually, maybe it was a major in football and a minor in business. I am a former Oxford Learning student. I wasn't able to read in grade 3, but after being identified with CAPD, Oxford Learning was able to help me develop strategies and the confidence to succeed. Currently, I am the Education Director at this centre and a member of the Canadian National Rugby team. I've lived in New Zealand, Wales, and Victoria, BC. My hobbies include snowboarding, watching The Walking Dead, and cooking (somewhere along the way, I earned a culinary diploma from Liaison College in Hamilton).
Hi! My name is Lauren Duff. I was born and raised here in London, Ontario. I graduated from Western University with a degree in Sociology and French.

Hi! My name is Shawn McIntosh, or as the students call me "The Math Wizard", although I'd like to think it's more "math AND science." Originally from out east, I moved to Ontario for my post-secondary education. I am a graduate from the University of Waterloo, with a Bachelor of Science Degree. I am currently in my second year of the Education program at Western University for intermediate/senior Math and Physics, with a specialization in STEM education. When I'm not teaching, I'm likely out on the soccer field, playing hockey, or taking in a round of golf. Working more closely with students at Oxford Learning is incredibly rewarding and I look forward to helping more students reach their academic goals!
