Remedial Programs at Prep Academy Tutors
Helping Students in West Toronto Achieve High Scores
When a student has a hard time meeting school standards, it can have a devastating effect on their self-esteem. They might label themselves as “dumb” or “stupid,” and discourage themselves from putting effort into school. That’s why remedial programs are so important to Prep Academy Tutors. We offer students a way of conquering their obstacles through concrete improvement.

Direct Instruction Reading Mastery
If your child has faced obstacles regarding their reading skills, there’s hope. Prep Academy Tutors offers a powerful curriculum taught by our compassionate accredited teachers: Direct Instruction Reading Mastery. Designed according to the Direct Instruction philosophy and developed by Science Research Associates (SRA), this program has the ability to help students conquer reading and meet the highest educational standards.
It accomplishes this through highly-structured and scripted lessons, where students understand what they are doing at all times. Each session focuses on a basic concept that builds on the previous lesson, so the material reviews itself often. As a result, students retain the information for the long term while developing their skills.
The Direct Instruction philosophy matches Prep Academy Tutors’: we believe that every child has the capacity to learn and grow. This curriculum helps make that possible through incremental learning, applied through our personal and approachable style. Marissa B. is our Direct Instruction Specialist, helping ensure that our students are able to catch up to their peers and meet educational standards.

The Wilson Reading System
Students with language-based learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, may have a solution to their reading difficulties: the Wilson Reading System, as taught by our accredited instructors. This system teaches the English language as a series of rules and structures, empowering students to apply those rules in reading and writing.
Because the Wilson Reading System is founded on Orton-Gillingham principles, each lesson employs multi-sensory approaches to the material. Sessions utilize colors, sounds, reading, decoding, and speaking to ensure the material is understood and retained effectively. By teaching reading on multiple fronts, this innovative program can help your child overcome their reading obstacles and build their confidence as students and learners.
Our Personal Approach
Not only will your child see concrete results week after week—so will you! Our tutors are personable communicators, so we update you as often as we can. Our tutors will schedule calls and face-to-face meetings, preferring personal contact to emails or texts. With us, you will always be in the loop about how your child is progressing.
We take pride in our results because we believe in our approach with students. Rather than lecture them or talk above them, our tutors collaborate with students like fellow classmates. Think of us as your child’s “smart friend,” helping them understand through clear and simple explanations.
