Private lessons and group classes get participants speaking, reading, and writing in a second language: Spanish, Portuguese, or English. Many classes cover general knowledge over the course of six levels, but others are tailored to businesses, kids, or those who just want to brag about their pet hamster in a classier-sounding way. Private participants might choose to commission a curriculum that meets their specific needs.
Having led hundreds of clients down a custom-paved road to physical health, certified fitness trainers Christopher and Stephanie Williams founded Destiny Fitness as a home base for both in-studio and mobile personal-training services. The team helps locals achieve wholesome lifestyle shifts, manning group fitness classes at their Mississauga studio when they aren't bringing personal training regimens, equipment, and inflatable Olympic-size pools to area homes. Their programs, which can include nutritional guidance as well as frequent progress assessments, are part of a step-by-step system intended to become a guide to lifelong fitness success. More specialized therapies are available under the pair's Destiny Wellness umbrella, a mobile facet of the company that travels to those with rehabilitative needs.
Much like the familiar fishing adage, Mission Possible Tutors believes that if you help a student with homework, they learn for a day, but if you help them create their own strategies for overcoming learning obstacles, they will be prepared for a lifetime of education. During study sessions, tutors set specific goals to help children develop problem-solving skills, build confidence, and cement their own personal study strategies. Mission Possible’s areas of expertise include ESL, reading, writing, spelling, math, problem solving, study skills, and science.
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.
