If your child wants to succeed in academics, but experiences difficulty in working up to their full potential in school, Apple Tutoring provides educational services that will help your child to develop essential learning skills to achieve academic success. We offer one-on-one personalized tutoring for students of different levels and school ages at the convenience of your own home. We believe that every child deserves to reach their full potential, despite any learning obstacles or barriers they have encountered.
Our mission is to provide your child with the highest quality tutoring services from qualified, certified teachers in the comforts of your home. We recognize that foreign culture and language are two major obstacles that prevent many new immigrants and international students from achieving academic success. Apple Tutoring is here to help. In addition to our customized one-on-one academics tutoring, we will help your child to improve their English language skills and learn about Canadian culture by introducing a mentorship and volunteering program. This program helps students get involved with their community and immerses them in Canadian culture.
Apple Tutoring is different from traditional tutoring centres where students visit a couple of times per week to work on standardized lessons. At Apple Tutoring, we take a new and unique approach by providing in-home, one-on-one tutoring that is customized specifically for each student’s needs. We believe students excel quicker if they are given one-on-one coaching in a place where they feel comfortable and can fully focus. We are helping students from kindergarten to high school on their way to academic achievement in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, West Vancouver, and the New Westminster area. We offer flexible scheduling to accommodate your child and family’s busy life.
A Message from the Founder
My passion for tutoring started in 1998 when I came to Vancouver as an international student. I understand the strength needed to adapt to Canadian culture and the necessity to overcome the language barriers. I believe that every student can attain their goals through support, encouragement, and motivation. This understanding has allowed me to create a tutoring company that focuses on providing a quality educational service that allows students to achieve their academic success.
As the owner of Apple Tutoring, I feel that it is important to connect prospective learners with the properly qualified tutors in order to ensure the success of the individual student. It is with the utmost importance that my role as facilitator is to pair the student with a tutor who is able to customize lessons in order to enhance the individualized sessions. By offering a unique tutoring service, I am able to assist new immigrant families and international students by finding the right tutor to fulfill their academic goals. While the learner and the tutor work together, the student is able to acquire Canadian culture and study the English language at a microscopic level. When the student is equipped with the tools to be successful, they will have the confidence to conquer the challenges they encounter.
About Apple Tutoring
Apple Tutoring was founded in 2007 with a focus on introducing a new concept in tutoring by offering one-on-one, in-home tutoring for students. We are confident in our beliefs that a student’s chances of enrichment are greatly improved when they are coached one-on-one in the comforts of their home. In addition, we recognize that students new to Canada may experience problems in school due to the language and cultural barriers they face when adapting to a new environment.
It is through this awareness that Apple Tutoring has based its learning programs on helping students to develop academically and socially to reach their full potential. We are committed to accommodate the personal needs of each student and create a positive learning experience while building confidence and self-esteem.
Confident . Self-Esteem . Success
Our philosophy is simple: Every child has the potential to succeed at school if given the proper encouragement, motivation, and techniques to work with. We believe our success is attributed to the caliber of our teaching staff and their dedication to listen and observe how each student works and learns.
This approach enables our tutors to then provide the student with appropriate strategies to work with so they can learn more effectively and advance quickly. Our goal is to reach students with academic difficulties as early as possible and to build their lifelong learning strategies and problem-solving skills.
This positive intervention will begin a cycle of confidence, motivation, and academic success which will stay with the student throughout their lifetime.
Through our free assessment, we will customize learning strategies and develop study plans to fit individual students’ needs. We will hand-select a tutor who will best suit your child’s learning style and personality. To ensure positive and productive academic improvement for your child, his/ her progress will be monitored and tracked.
