About us

We match adults who want to upgrade their literacy skills (English or math) with suitably skilled volunteer tutors. We provide our tutor-learner pairs with lesson plans, learning resources and ongoing support. At given time we manage more than 100 tutor learner matches.
Approximately two thirds of our learners are new to Canada. Approximately 75% of all our learners (those born here as well as those born elsewhere) need to upgrade their literacy skills in order to enhance their employability.
Many of our learners are trying to get a college education. They may have dropped out of high school, or maybe they graduated but didn’t do well enough in English or math to get into, say, a trades or healthcare program. Others can’t afford the time or money to return to school but have to improve their literacy skills if they hope to find a job that pays enough to support them and perhaps a family.
