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 has demonstrated 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 for what seems like endless hours on end.
The purpose of this program is to help your child become the best version of him or her self!
We have outlined below the topics to be covered in the workshop running for High School students in 2017. It’s a full 20 hours and for an investment of $500 it works out to costing only $25 per hour! Imagine the competitive advantage your child will have over their classmates when they are equipped with the tools to excel above the rest of the class.

B. COMM Management
Joining Oxford Learning as a high school teacher in 2004 allowed me to tap into the passion I had always wanted to fulfill; to sincerely be a source of energy for students that want to reach their full potential. The heartfelt gratitude of my students and enjoyment of seeing them succeed has made me a lifelong educator. As a student I always knew that potential is only met when the right tools are provided. At Oxford Learning I am able to help each of our students gain the knowledge and confidence to thrive academically. Through the completion of my Bachelors in Commerce Management from the Ted Rogers School of Business at Ryerson University, I now have the ability to lead our team and help our families see their children grow.
My lifelong passion for learning cultivated in the successful completion of an Honours Bachelor Degree in English Literature from the University of Toronto. Subsequent careers in journalism and as an employment career coach and mentor have paved the way to his most exciting opportunity as Education Coordinator with Oxford Learning. I am so grateful to be able to do what I love to do—inspire, coach and mentor—with an organization that encourages and uplifts young people to be their very best!
