The tutors at Grade Math Programs' Orillia and Barrie locations aid their pupils in grasping mathematical concepts and, in doing so, boost students' math knowledge and self-confidence. Kids in grades 1–10 work in with their peers or alone with the educators—all current or former certified teachers—to reap the benefits of both group problem solving and personal attention. And because Grade Math is open all year, students can get homework help during the school year, retain already learned information in summer sessions, and learn to write words on upside-down calculators at any time.

Huronia Arts Academy summons sheet music off the page and into the hands, mouths, and hearts of eager acolytes. Versed in classical, jazz, pop, and myriad other musical genres, skilled educators offer students of all ages and skill levels guidance in the nuances of notes and secret world of clefs. Within the confines of a cozy, soundproof chamber, you'll be guided towards a mastery of melodies on your choice of violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, flute, sax, piano, voice, drums, or accordion. If you don’t have the instrument you’re interested in, Huronia Arts Academy can help arrange a rental (for an additional fee). Unlike one-size-fits-all clown noses or ice cream assembly lines, students can personalize their pursuits; guitar instructors, for instance, chat with fledgling strummers about the style and type of guitar lessons they're seeking out, and then place them with a teacher that meets their needs.
