Philosophy

Our Company

Our mission is to help youth overcome learning obstacles through personalized tutoring and mentoring

At My Tutor Calgary we focus on more than just academics. Using our smart-matching process, we pair your child with a “mentutor” – a tutor who can help guide and motivate your child through life’s challenges. We ensure your child has the academic tools required to succeed, the right motivation, and the supports required maximize your child’s learning experience inside and outside of school.

Our values are what separate us from other tutoring companies

One Question, One Lesson, One class at a time. Motivation is one of the key reasons students succeed or fail. With hard work and the right motivation EVERY student can succeed. Low motivation can come from a lack of interest in school, low self-confidence, poor emotional well-being, and not being able to understand the important role education plays in one’s future. Our evaluation process takes personality and academics into consideration and highlights the goals of your child, inside and outside of school. Our tutor and your child will co-create an individualized success plan to help your child reach their dreams one question, one lesson, one course at a time.
