Relatively new to the field of Education, I have owned an Oxford Learning Franchise since 2014 and hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree specializing in Accounting and Commercial Law.
My reasons for owning an Oxford learning aren’t unique: I saw the impact of early childhood education on my own children and wanted to pay the deed forward. Since then I have made it my mission to educate children who most people feel, cannot be educated. Our Centre has many kids with special learning abilities and we teach them logic, try to build their cognitive profiles and coach them in Oxford Learning’s proprietary curriculum. We also coach students that need to catch up or stay ahead in their school work.
It is our mission statement to ensure that every student has an opportunity to reach their highest learning potential and at Oxford Learning Markham South, we try our best to implement this daily. Our staff is committed to ensure that all students’ programs are updated regularly and as per parents’ expectations.
The compliments and acknowledgement we receive from our parents, is what gets me to work every morning and keeps me at the centre till closing time.
So come join us and give your child the gift of learning today. Close
I am a certified educator with 5 years of professional experience. I have been working with children for almost 10 years. I completed a Bachelor of Arts from University of Toronto, majoring in English, and double minor in Gender studies and Sociology. I also completed my Bachelor of Education from York University, specializing in Urban Diversity. I obtained advanced qualification in Special needs teaching. While completing my degrees, I spent 7 years working with Canadian Center for Victims of Torture. I travelled to London, UK to teach in high priority areas. I worked with children who were coming from broken homes and abused families, as well as special needs, high needs, behavioural disorders, and learning disabilities.
Upon returning to Canada, I joined Oxford Learning as a teacher. I fell in love with the mission that Oxford Learning adheres to, and eventually became the Education Director. I believe that every child has the capability to do well, and reach their highest potential. At Oxford Learning, we strive to give students the skills to excel in all areas of their lives, and not just the academics!
I completed my Bachelor of Arts at McMaster University and majored in Sociology. Post graduation, I continued to increase my knowledge and added to my work experience. I then obtained several qualifications that now allow me to work alongside individuals who have special needs, learning disabilities, and behavioural disorders.
My passion to work with children and to help them succeed and grow started at a very young age, and has brought me to where I am today. I stand by Oxford Learning’s mission and I am very proud to be the education coordinator here at Oxford Learning. I absolutely love connecting with each and every student; celebrating both their academic and personal successes with them!

I enrolled my two children at Oxford Learning this summer for a month. It was the most amazing experience and the best thing that I could have done for them. At first I was hesitant as my children are only 3 and 5; however, from the initial assessment I felt comfortable. Everyone was very nice, professional and knowledgeable. Prior to attending the assessment I exchanged numerous emails with the centre and they always responded promptly.
My kids had fun; their teacher was amazing and they learned a lot. I would not hesitate to re-enrol them again.
Our little Smita continues to excel at school. I am happy to tell you that she has received an award for being an "Avid Reader". She also MC'ed at her school with over 500 guest attending. Her confidence speaking has come from confidence in reading. These accomplishments came from Oxford Learning; your teachers, your help, your support. Your school is surrounded by care and loving teachers and most of all, security and learning. Thank you.
Dear Ms. Najma,
I know for a fact when Vijay started at Oxford Learning his academics were nowhere close to where they are now. All he knew at that time was 'my name is Vijay and I love cars!'
He has shown so much enthusiasm for learning. This I know can only happen for a child who is 3 years old because of all the love, effort, and comfort he has with his teachers and more so, his secure class environment. I still can't believe that Vijay can read!
Thank you to his wonderful teachers! Vijay loves "Oxpord"; he couldn't have said Oxford when he started but now he can read, spell and write!
My twin sons Devin and Ryan have been attending the Markham South Oxford Learning Centre for about three years. They both have become more confident in themselves since coming here and are more willing to do their school work. One of my twins who has a learning disability in reading and writing, has come a long way and even his teachers at school say how hard he tries. I feel this is due to the help and encouragement they receive from their teachers at Oxford Learning. Najma and Katie are always welcoming and willing to talk to you when you have a concern with your child’s school work. My boys are happy and are progressing very well at school and I thank all the teachers here for everything they do. I would definitely recommend Oxford Learning to other parents.
Oxford Learning has been a wonderful experience for my son on every way. His teachers are caring, patient and knowledgeable. He is learning AND having fun all at the same time. He actually told me, he chooses Oxford Learning over his regular school! Huge bottom of my heart thank you to Cyrus and all the teachers!
