  • I feel like he is better equipped to use the technology. It helps decrease the stress of learning all the new technology. Thanks for your help. He really had a great time.
  • Improvement in my child’s attitude towards school work with less resistance. In fact she is now excited about school projects because of her new tools at her disposal.

  • My son shared that he likes coming to tutoring because “my tutor gets me”. As a parent that was just as important as the help with school work.

He’s learned to advocate for himself by asking for additional clarifications or info if he doesn’t understand things. The programs offered at LDA continue to be top quality. The unique approach to helping the students get to the heart of their challenges and assisting them with coping strategies or way to overcome them is superb.

Volunteer Team Comments

Do you believe that your student has shown progress throughout the tutoring program?

  • My student has become more open and independent. He has also shown growth through his improved ability to contribute his own ideas/opinions.
  • She gained a great amount of confidence. She is more willing to try activities and questions that previously would have intimidated her.
  • My student has greatly improved not only in her academics but more importantly in the confidence of her answers.
  • My student has learned to be more focused and enthusiastic toward homework. He has also improved understanding of important concepts of his subjects at school.

Please comment on the greatest improvements and/or success you have seen throughout the program with your student. Provide a specific example if possible.

  • My student has mostly improved in his confidence & ability to tackle difficult problems. For example, early on in the program he would not even attempt difficult looking problems; by the end he would accept the challenge and work through them step by step with some help.
  • The greatest improvement that I have seen is my student looking forward to learning new things. Before my student did not want to go to tutoring but through this program he looks forward to coming and working.
  • Her ability to colour code to organize points from ideas/arguments for an essay.
  • My student improved the most in his proficiency in math. He is much better at understanding what to do to answer multiplication and subtraction problems which he struggled with at the beginning of the sessions. He is able to break down large numbers in problems to make them easier to deal with.
