“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” ~Aristotle

Effective learning assistance requires more than just tutoring. At Oak Learners, we offer a unique approach which blends mentoring, mindfulness and academic support to ensure the best possible outcome for your child.

We have experienced teachers working together to pair your child with the right instructor to meet their individual needs, both for Private Tutoring and small-group Skill Booster classes.

Launching in January 2017, Oak Learners will introduce our unique “Bridge the Gap” programs, designed to enrich and support the education of students K-12 who are in need of a flexible and alternative academic learning environment.

Tutoring (Private & Semi-Private Teaching)

Private and Semi-Private Tutoring sessions are 60 minutes in length. Students are paired with an experienced and OCT qualified teacher for academic support. Our teachers have experience working with students with learning disabilities and other exceptionalities and provide programming based on the individual needs of the students. Grades K-12, all subjects.

Dates: Call to book

Cost: $480 (8 classes – Private) ; $400 (8 classes – Semi-Private, 2 students)
