Part-time Academic Coach / Study Skills Tutor
The philosophy of StudySpot is simple: Good students possess certain skills that allow them to reach their potential and manage school more effectively.
Since 1999, StudySpot has provided Academic Coaching support to late elementary and high school students in the Greater Toronto Area. Our goal is to equip students with the tools they require to be effective learners overall, and to provide them with the opportunity for improvement that will last throughout their school lives.
Academic Coaching offers a more appropriate educational support for most students, particularly those in late elementary and high school, because it focuses on the why students underachieve and the importance of focusing on skill development.
