ABOUT US

Study Partners is an award-winning group of tutoring centres serving Eastern Ontario students in kindergarten through grade 12. Our family started Study Partners Tutoring because we couldn’t find professional after-school academic support for our own children. As parents of five very different learners, we know no two students are the same or have the same goals for school. While one student may want to improve a grade or feel more confident, another may want to complete homework on time, be better organized, or simply enjoy school more. Our talented education specialists are individually hand-picked by us to help students help feel more optimistic, stay curious, and see themselves as capable learners, able to tackle academic challenges.

Our first location opened in the beautiful lakeside town of Cobourg, Ontario in the fall of 2019. Through word of mouth, the dedication of an exceptional group of local educators and front desk staff, and a commitment to making students feel more positive about school and themselves we were soon serving over 300 families from Newcastle to Trenton in the counties of Clarington, Northumberland, Peterborough, Hastings, Quinte, and Prince Edward. We opened our second tutoring centre in the growing community of Belleville, Ontario in the fall of 2021. Today we serve students from the following school boards (English and French Immersion), as well as from local independent and faith-based schools:

Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington Catholic School Board
Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board
Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board
Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board
Limestone District School Board

“B– LOVES Ms. B! She has been fantastic for him and really brought him out of his shell! And the communication home is fantastic. I honestly couldn’t ask for anything more.”

 – Parent of Kindergarten student

Our tutors devote 100% of their attention to each student’s unique needs, creating a safe environment for asking questions and working at each student’s own pace to build their confidence, so they can master new skills. Along the way, we hope to relieve some of the tension and conflict families can experience when a student is unhappy at school.

A lot of things make us unique from other tutoring companies. Over 90% of our tutors are Ontario Certified Teachers, with a thorough knowledge of the Ontario Curriculum. Our students work with the same tutor every week, and our tutors work directly with our students’ classroom materials. If a family wants us to connect with a student’s classroom teacher to co-create tutoring goals or just to check-in, we will. Finally, families receive individualized feedback after every tutoring session, so they are always up to date on a student’s progress. We don’t ask families to pay for arbitrary assessments, to buy corporate learning materials or to commit to a minimum number of sessions. At the end of the day, we don’t tutor like everyone else because no student is like anyone else.

We are grateful to local area schools and teachers from these schools who have supported our efforts by tutoring in our centres and making families aware of our services.

We are also grateful to the Port Hope and District Chamber of Commerce and the Northumberland Chamber of Commerce for recognizing us with their annual business awards.

Finally, we are grateful to the wonderful students and families who have and continue to be part of our journey, and take the time to share feedback like this with us:

G——–is delighted. She was able to submit her assignment on time, which was a huge relief! S—– seems to be the right fit and I am hoping she can carry on her magic with G——–.

Dad of grade 9 math student

H—– never makes me feel like what I am asking is a dumb question. He always makes sure I understand 100% before moving on and makes me feel very prepared and low stress going into my assigned homework and classes.

Grade 12 math student

M——– very much enjoyed her first session and felt it was a good fit. She told her teachers all about it on Monday and they are looking forward to hearing from you.

Mom of grade 7 academic coaching student

Our family is planning to open additional tutoring centres in Peterborough and Bowmanville by 2023. We have big plans for helping Eastern Ontario students achieve their academic goals and together with our amazing teachers, staff, families and local school boards, we are confident we will achieve them. We hope that you will join us on our journey! All you have to do is take the next step…
