"We have had our children going to Oxford Learning for the last 9 years. They have participated in the Beyond Tutoring after-school program and the Little Readers program. It is not by coincidence that they have consistently maintained good grades. Oxford Learning has allowed them to excel in all of their subjects. They have learned great study skills and work habits. Staff motivate them to do well and work towards their goals and are always approachable and look after the best interests of the students. They really understand the needs of each individual student and their particular strengths and weaknesses. We are so glad that we chose Oxford Learning!"

We originally had Chloe going to Oxford Learning two days a week, but when we noticed how much she flourished and enjoyed it, we quickly signed her up for a third morning. Chloe’s eyes light up when she tells us about her mornings, and she asks if she has school in the mornings during our bedtime talks. She shrieks with excitement when we tell her that she does. We think that she would happily attend every day of the week! Our experience at Oxford Learning has been absolutely wonderful; you’ve given her a love of learning.

Beyond the progress made academically, we have seen unbelievable improvements in Bria’s self-confidence and self esteem. I think that the biggest gain that Bria has made this year is how she handles the unexpected. Oxford Learning has provided a safe environment for Bria to further develop her coping skills for when things don’t go according to plan. Thank you so much for being such a positive influence on my daughter!
My son Colin will soon begin his journey into the world of postsecondary education, and thanks to his teachers at Oxford Learning, he is more organized and finally has confidence in his own judgment. He is more than prepared to tackle the SATs and is looking forward to heading off to college in the fall. You have passed the baton to him to begin his journey to the next stage of his life.
Hi! My name is Ms. Shaheen, and I am the Director and owner of Oxford Learning Centre Surrey. I have long believed that all children have the potential to learn if given the opportunity and a positive learning environment. As a result, I chose Oxford Learning as our family business. I am excited to see kids learn new things and build confidence and self-esteem and I thrive on their accomplishments. Everyday is an exciting challenge and I enjoy meeting and getting to know new families! I believe a good academic foundation is what helps kids become successful adults and I am happy to help contribute to children’s life long learning. I believe Oxford Learning is a family environment, where our teachers all have a vested interest in your children’s successes! I hope to help as many kids in our community reach their potential!
Hi, I am Donna and I am pleased to be working with children at Oxford Learning Centre. I have been working at Oxford Learning for over 5 years and love everyday that I am here! I graduated from University in British Columbia with a bachelor of Education and Special Education Degree. After spending many years working with children with learning difficulties and children with special needs, I am excited about helping children at Oxford Learning to reach their potential in a friendly, warm and positive environment.
My name is Esther and it has been my distinct pleasure to take over the morning sessions of the Little Readers program at Oxford Learning. I have an extensive background in child development, dealing with all learning capacities and various challenges. I am going into my 8th year working with terminally ill children and their siblings at Canuck Place Children's Hospice. I have the honour of spending time with these children, as well as getting to know their families in the face of extreme adversity. As well as being trained in adolescent development, my experiences at Canuck Place have taught me that with perseverance and encouragement, any child can do anything they put their mind to. Sometimes they just need a little guidance. First and foremost I am a mother and I have enjoyed raising three quirky, caring, fun loving, and imaginative children. I have learned over the years that children are best taught with patience, persistence, and a lot of fun thrown in to show their true personalities. I look forward to helping your children learn and grow!
Hello everyone! My name is Mrs. Krystin and I am a graduate of Simon Fraser University. I have my degree in English with an education focus. My passion for the arts was ignited while studying at SFU. I love literature in all forms and from a vast range of different authors. Plays and poetry are my favourite forms of literature. I enjoy acting, drawing, singing, playing guitar, and writing poetry in my spare time. I love Disney movies, which makes it a lot easier for me to relate to the children. My time at Oxford Learning is usually spent making program changes, talking with students, teaching, and meeting with parents. I am the Education Coordinator at this centre. What does being a coordinator entail? I can help you with any questions or concerns you may have about registration, program changes, scheduling, and homework books. My job is to make sure that you and your children enjoy a positive experience every time you come to Oxford Learning. I look forward to working with you and your children to make their dreams come true!
Hi! I am Ms. Carolyn. I moved to the Langley area 2.5 years ago from Virginia, U.S.A. I have a strong background in math and sciences. In May 2007, I graduated magna cum laude from Virginia Tech with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biological Systems Engineering. During my college career, I tutored students in a variety courses including: chemistry, calculus, and statistics. In May 2010, I graduated with a Masters of Science degree in Biological Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech. After graduating, I helped my friend start an organic fruit farm in Blacksburg, Virginia. I love helping the kids at Oxford Learning learn that Math and Science are not hard when the right strategies to learn are in play! In my spare time, I enjoy a variety of activities like playing ultimate Frisbee, golfing, and hiking with my dog Honee Doo.
My name is Raj Dhillon and I just completed my Bachelor of Education in Secondary Social Studies at UBC in August of this year. Passionate about history and politics from a young age, I decided to pursue a Major in History during my undergraduate studies at Kwantlen. Through my volunteer work at Tamanawis Secondary, I also discovered that I really enjoyed working with children and youth, and making a difference in their lives. As such, I decided to enter the profession of teaching. Being new to the field, I would like to gain more experience working with children of all ages in a teaching setting and this is one reason why I wanted to join the Oxford Learning team. Aside from this, Oxford Learning's philosophy of active learning and enhancing students' self-esteem (and thus their ability to work independently), really appeals to me. Having faced the challenge of teaching diverse classrooms during my practicum, I truly believe in the merit and impact of this philosophy and I'm excited to be a part of it!
Hi my name is Katie, I have recently joined the team here at Oxford Learning Centre. I previously studied Linguistics at SFU and later finished my BA in Psychology at KPU. I have found fulfillment in working with people, especially children. I previously worked with children who have witnessed violence, providing interventions and increasing self-esteem. I also provided rehabilitation strategies for children and adults with physical and mental impairments. Oxford Learning has proven to have impactful techniques and unique philosophies about how to help children learn. I am excited to be part of this amazing team of teachers who help these children develop and see their full potential. Outside of Oxford Learning I like to go fishing, ride my ATV and cook!
Bonjour! My name is Marnie. I’m originally from Quebec and moved to BC eight years ago. I now live in Langley with my husband, our two boys, and our dog. I hold a CEGEP diploma in Social Studies and Languages (Spanish, German & French), a university certificate in Industrial Relations and Human Resources Management, and a Bachelor of Human Resources Management and Labour Relations. I have much experience tutoring and teaching French! I enjoy sharing my love of the French language and igniting the desire to learn in children of all ages. I’m working toward completing my Bachelor of Education in the near future. I enjoy socializing, yoga, spinning, traveling and chocolate. I look forward to working with all of the students at Oxford Learning!
My name is Ms. Kelsey and I'm a communications major. I have extensive experience working with high school students in English and Social Studies as well as elementary students in reading and writing. Prior to working at Oxford Learning, I completed my TESOL certification, where I discovered how much I enjoy teaching and how fulfilling it can be. In my spare time, I read, write, and experiment with art. I plan to teach English overseas at some point in my career, as I have a passion for teaching abroad. I love working with kids in a variety of educational settings and I have done this for the last several years. I love it, and I'm excited to be here at Oxford Learning to see the kids reach their true potential!
Hello! My name is Ms. Ruby! I moved from Scarborough, Ontario, to White Rock, British Columbia in 2013. From Ontario, I completed my Undergraduate Degree, Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature (Hon. B.A) with a Minor in Music at Wilfrid Laurier University. I then completed my Master of Education (M.Ed) at Brock University, in Administration and Leadership in Education with a secondary study in Social and Cultural Contexts of the Classroom. My M.Ed thesis revolved around the types and purpose of different types of alternative education available in Canada, and how these forms of education accomplish their unique learning philosophies. Mainly, I researched and argued for how alternative forms of education help students achieve personal and academic success in an ever-evolving world. Finally, I obtained my teaching degree (B.Ed) at Queen’s University, with a focus in Primary/Junior education, as well as Senior English. Since graduating from Queen’s University and moving to BC, I have worked as a private tutor and as a TOC in well-established Private/Independent Schools in the lower mainland. I hope to pursue a Ph.D in Education in the near future, but I am currently enjoying developing my personal teaching philosophy while helping students develop their personal learning philosophy.
Hi I’m Mrs. Wendie. My career in education has been very interesting. I started as an elementary school teacher teaching Kindergarten to grade 7, then being a Helping Teacher for Learning Assistance and Gifted Programs and finally ended my career as an elementary school principal all within the district of Surrey. I have enjoyed working with students, teachers and parents. I love to see the excitement on a child’s face when they experience the “I understand now” moment. After I retired, I had several opportunities to travel to Seoul Korea where I was teaching English as A Second Language to children ages 5-9. This experience was very rewarding as I realized what it was like to be a new learner in a foreign country. Over the past few years, in the summer, I have had the opportunity to work along side Korean teachers to help improve their instruction level of English to Korean students attending schools in South Korea. I am excited to have this opportunity to be part of the Oxford Learning Centre team where I will be able to continue to assist students with their learning and understanding.
