20-Hour Study Skills Program

20-hour Study Skills Workshop

Did you know that studies have shown that 4 out 5 parents believe the beginning of the year is the best time to build study habits and prepare for the rest of the year? Our 20-hour Study Skills Workshop helps do just that! Research shows that learning how to study more effectively boosts confidence going into tests, strengthens self-esteem and helps students become self-motivated to strive for better grades. Kids with better study habits use their time wisely instead of passively studying hours on end. The purpose of this program is to help children become the best version of themselves!

My kids have been going to Oxford Learning Maple for many years now for the small group ratio and positive learning environment. With Oxford Learning supplementing their school learning, the kids have achieved better grades. The teachers are very friendly and caring. In particular, Sarah is always looking after the needs of the kids, keeps parents in the loop regarding their kids' progress and always goes above and beyond to ensure the kids achieve their goals. Our experience has been positive and well worth the investment!

Paola D

My boys have been coming to Oxford Learning Maple for the past 7 years. The staff have been amazing. Sarah is passionate about learning and has done a terrific job setting up appointments to keep us in the loop about our boys’ progress. My boys have been doing very well in school and I am very happy I chose Oxford Learning to supplement their school work. I put my boys in Oxford Learning when they were 3 and 5 years old respectively. My husband and I didn’t wait to see if they would struggle in school first. We felt Oxford Learning would be beneficial regardless. We have been very impressed with Oxford Learning and highly recommend it to other parents.

Elisa G

Sarah, the manager, is very passionate about students and learning. Oxford Learning has a very serious and well-constructed plan for helping students and I recommend their services to all parents looking to help their children move forward academically.

Oxford Learning was a great way for my son to get the help he needed. The assessment and the structure of the workbooks allows me to see my son's progress. The staff are great, especially Sarah, who is very accommodating to my son's busy hockey schedule. I have already recommended to many friends on the benefits of Oxford Learning and will continue to do so!

Karen J

My name is Mrs. Hardeep and I am writing to express my deepest appreciation as well to inform you the exceptional job this location is doing. My three-year-old son Jeremiah started Oxford Learning in June 2015, at this time he had no formal tutoring or training except what I had been teaching him at home. I had been looking for something that would stimulate his desire to learn and train him to focus. I drove by the Maple location on my way home and decided to take the step of faith and call for details. Nina called me back promptly and was so motivated (not pushy) to meet with me to discuss further. Hesitantly I went ahead with the meeting, I only say hesitantly because I am extremely reluctant when it comes to who deals with my children, as expected by most parents. But when I met with Nina the warmth of the school alone won me over. Nina was very accommodating off the bat, and I could hear the passion and care for children in her voice. Immediately after starting with Teacher Tam my family, friends and husband saw an increased desire in our son Jay to learn. The first few sessions I sat close to the window so that I could hear the interaction between Jay and Tam. There was a chemistry between Tam and all her students! Tam is caring yet firm. She is welcoming and not to mention smart, my son had an instant liking to her. Unfortunately, due to Jay starting preschool in October we had to discontinue our time with Oxford Learning for financial reasons. But to my amazement, Jay's preschool teacher found Jay to be sharp, knowledgeable and advanced in alphabet recognition and writing. I strongly believe this is because of his time at Oxford Learning. Although short, it was enough to get him confident, and prepared for full-time preschool. Starting kids in school is an important milestone in our children's lives...thanks for being a part of it and making it so seamless. Thank you for the level of care and commitment Oxford Learning extends to parents and guardians. Thank you especially to Nina, Lauren and Ms. Tam :) Take good care!

Hardeep, Jeremy, and Jay C.

The manager Sarah has made my experience at Oxford Learning great! She really cares about the students and helps them reach their full potential. She is very dedicated and was able to accommodate me even with my busy schedule. Thank you so much, Sarah.

My son started Oxford Learning approx 1 year ago. Within a month of the reading program, he jumped 10 levels in reading. I must say that his reading has dramatically improved from where he first began. Thank you Oxford Learning for putting my son's needs first.

I am very glad I found Oxford Learning for my child. He has improved a lot since he joined. The staff at the Maple location, especially Sarah, are very helpful and meticulous.

Highly recommend Oxford Learning Maple for Grade 11 math and Grade12 chemistry tutoring. Teachers are patient, supportive and encouraging. Sarah M. works very hard to accommodate student-athletes and goes the extra mile to coordinate around training and test schedules.

Francesca D.

We had a pleasure of meeting with Sarah Marcos. She helped us to feel very welcomed and really took the time to get to know my daughter. She helped us with all the aspects of the program that was designated for our child’s particular needs and preferences. Sarah was extremely kind and helpful in adjusting our schedule and helping our daughter to improve her academics while having fun! The best experience we ever had with tutoring! And they just love kids here! Thanks, Oxford Learning!

Eleonora

My son has been attending for more than 15 months, twice a week, and has seen improvement in French and math. Sarah is great taking our feedback and passing to the teachers and following up. She is so dedicated. Thank you, Sarah, for all your hard work and dedication!
