A new school year can be stressful... for both parents and students alike: new teachers, new classmates, new classrooms, and new learning material.
Will last year’s problems pop up again? Will there be new challenges to face this year?
Want one less thing to stress about for the upcoming school year? Enrol your child at Oxford Learning this summer.
By getting your child back into the school groove before the new school year begins, a few important things happen:
Academic momentum kicks back into gear. Toward the end of June, students start sliding into summer mode; unfortunately, their learning also starts to slide, and that slide usually continues for the rest of the summer. A class at Oxford Learning kicks that momentum back into high gear so that students are revved up and running at peak performance when school begins again.
New learning habits build. With an Oxford Learning program, your child will learn many important school habits such as how to properly take notes, how to use an agenda, and how to manage his/her time. These skills transfer directly to the classroom so that from the first day of school, your child is heading into class ready to learn.
Motivation skyrockets. By knowing that they are tackling their schoolwork, learning new skills and techniques, and developing better comprehension, students feel better about the upcoming school year and approach it with confidence.
Many parents report that Oxford Learning is the one thing that helps transform their child’s “I don’t know about this” mindset into a “I’ve got this” one.

If your child isn’t already enrolled in Oxford Learning, what are you waiting for?

What Parents & Students Are Saying
Hello Alan and Brenda,
We finally got the time to write a small thank you!
By enrolling Neil and Prina at your Oxford Learning Centre, we made one of the best decisions ever.
We saw tremendous improvement in their reading and writing skills within a very short period of time. Words cannot express how important it was for both Prina and Neil to be able to read and write sooner than later and we can say happily that it is because of the care and attention that your staff has provided that has led to their successes.
We will definitely consider bringing Anoushka for the Little Readers program as soon as she is ready.
Thank you and best regards,
--Rakesh & Bijal

I just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for the hard work put in over the last year in helping Ali improve at school. Our Oxford experience has been a pleasant one since day one. Your emphasis on understanding individual child personalities, focus on study habits, coupled with an experienced staff and a noticeably positive environment undoubtedly puts your Centre above par. Furthermore, your willingness to consult parents and teachers on a continuous basis is a very effective tool… SIMPLY PUT, YOU FOLKS MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE!-Qamar
I like Oxford because it makes me more confident in my work at school. Now I can do my work a lot easier at school. I like my teacher because she helps me with writing in detail, editing and explaining things easier to me. I like Alan because he helps some people with their work too. THAT’S WHY I LOVE OXFORD!!!-Kyle
Dear Alan, Brenda and Daniella,
Thank you for helping Dakota build up his confidence and self-esteem. Your constant encouragement, support and tireless efforts have made his school year a positive experience.
Thank you once again!
Dear Brenda and Alan,
I am writing this letter to convey my sincere appreciation for the exceptional teaching and educational foundation my daughter received while enrolled in the ‘The Little Readers’ program at your Centre.THROUGH YOUR SCHOOLING, SHE HAS ACQUIRED AN ENTHUSIASM FOR LEARNING AND A LIFE-LONG LOVE OF EDUCATION!
My child has grown and developed socially, gained more self-confidence and has learned important skills for attaining knowledge; all of which she will carry with her always.Thank you so much for the wonderful experience and cherished memories. - Sheila
I would like to thank you for what Oxford has done for my son. Sammy started the ‘Little Readers’ as a shy three-year-old who didn’t speak a word of English. TODAY, JUST A YEAR AND A HALF LATER, HE NOT ONLY SPEAKS THE LANGUAGE FLUENTLY, HE IS READING AND WRITING! Your Centre has taught my son so much more than ABCs and One Two Threes…His level of confidence, communication and social skills wouldn’t be where they are now if it wasn’t for Oxford.
I will always be grateful to your Centre for making Sammy’s first educational experience such a positive one. I will recommend Oxford to any parent looking for a great start to their children’s education.-Nadia
During my class at Oxford I have learned many things that will help me at school.I enjoyed many things at Oxford, the people I interact with, the new things to experience; BUT I ENJOYED THE FEELING OF ACHIEVEMENT THE MOST!- Albert
Dear Alan, Brenda, Tara and Donna,
What you have done for Shaqed and Pri is tremendous. The program you have laid out worked great for them, and we saw a remarkable improvement in all areas. THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE DONE IS TO GIVE THEM THEIR SELF-CONFIDENCE BACK. When we see their achievements, and see them continue to work hard, we are very happy too. We will gladly recommend your Oxford branch to all of our friends-Ron & Gitit
I am excited to the join the Oxford Learning team as Centre Director at Richmond Hill South. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in English and Bachelor of Law in Mumbai. After briefly working as a lawyer, I moved to the United States to pursue a Ph.D. in Political Science from Purdue University. I worked in Toronto for over eight years as a researcher and community-based data analyst. During this time, I worked closely with children and youth mental health services, teachers and policy makers to support Ontario’s new early years policy framework. The common thread throughout my eclectic career has been my passion for teaching. I have taught undergraduates at Purdue, Early Childhood Educators in Toronto, and core and Little Reader programs at Oxford Learning. I believe that every child has the potential to excel and it is my privilege to use the Oxford Learning approach to guide your child along the path to success.
Hello! My name is Farah and I’m Oxford Learning’s Literacy Expert. I am an Ontario-Certified teacher who has taught students of all ages, from kindergarten up to Grade 12 English. I hold a Specialized Bachelors in English Literature, alongside a BED and a Master’s of Arts in English. It is my belief that a teacher's job extends well past the classroom; teachers must help students navigate the world they live in and grow into compassionate Global Citizens. I believe that being literate, in its fullest sense, is essential for the 21st century learner. I enjoy teaching students how to use their writing to explain their ideas clearly and analyze many types of texts. My lifelong love for Harry Potter has created a passion for research, for books, for travel, for adventure and a strong belief that with a little bit of hard work, anything is possible!

Salut! My name is Elizabeth and I'm currently attending le collège universitaire Glendon for the concurrent French studies/education (iBA/B.Ed), and Visual Arts (BFA) programs. My intense love for the French language developed as a child; I knew I wanted to follow into my grandmother's footsteps and become a French teacher. I have experience teaching French at a private school in Toronto and at the Ministry of Education. Learning a new language isn't easy, so as a teacher, one of my main goals is to inspire students so they develop the motivation to learn.
