Brain Training

Brain training programs can help rewire the neural pathways of the brain for children with weak language skills, auditory processing problems, difficulties with reading and spelling, ADHD, poor memory, and a number of other learning problems.

If your child is having difficulty learning or has been diagnosed with a learning disability, consider a course of action that will definitively address the root cause of the problem.

Interactive Metronome® for Focus and Attention

Interactive Metronome® is a drug-free approach to improving the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning and sequencing. This improvement, in turn, strengthens motor skills, including mobility and gross motor function, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organizing and language.

Remediation

Remedial instruction can help students who are struggling in school improve their basic skills in reading, writing, or math. Specialized support can help students catch up to their peers, even if a learning gap is not the result of a disability. Our remedial programs aim to eliminate the gap between what a child knows and what they are expected to know. With specialized individual attention, they can build their skills and confidence so that they are able to reach their true potential.

Enseignement Multi-sensoriel Simultané – Ems

Ems is a multi-sensory reading program in French, which simultaneously uses visual, auditory, tactile and kinaesthetic pathways to teach accurate decoding, spelling and reading comprehension skills. This program is based on the renowned multi-sensory Orton-Gillingham method of reading and spelling and has been adapted by the Canadian Dyslexia Association for French Mother Tongue and French Immersion students.

JUMP (Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies)

With JUMP Math, students develop competence by finding solutions for simplified models of a problem before moving to more complex problem solving. Students are not asked to struggle with open-ended mathematical problems until they have mastered the skills and concepts that will allow them to solve more simplified problems. Through guidance, meaningful instruction and practice, students develop confidence and competence in the understanding of mathematics.

Writing Program

Students work one-on-one with experienced writing teachers to become skillful in producing many different types of writing, including story writing, book reports, projects, essays and research papers. Our unique writing program emphasizes writing “for a reader” and helps students learn how to edit their writing to make their ideas more concise and understandable. This program is suitable for students of all ages, including CEGEP and University.

Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment for Cognitive Training

Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment is an intervention program designed to enhance the cognitive skills necessary for independent thinking and academic success. Through these learning experiences, students learn “how to learn” which can lead to increased academic performance. FIE consists of fourteen “instruments of learning” which help learners develop the tools and habits of thinking allowing them to process information, see connections, visualize spatial and temporal relationships, reason deductively and inductively, and communicate in precise ways.

Study Skills Program

The course is done through one-to-one tutoring with a qualified teacher and usually takes approx. 25 hours, with students coming into the centre once or twice a week. Students are given every opportunity to transfer the skills taught in this course to their curriculum. We request that students bring their school textbooks and notes, and we teach them how to put these study skills into practice with their actual schoolwork and assignments. They are also taught test taking strategies that will help them perform better on tests or exams. Students will learn:

• How to become an independent, active learner
• How to manage his time
• How to organize his homework
• How to take notes, extracting important information in a systematic way
• How the brain works and how to memorize relevant material
• How to prepare for tests and reduce test anxiety

Visualizing and Verbalizing Program for Cognitive Development, Comprehension, & Thinking (V/V)™

Many readers can read words and have a developed vocabulary, but still struggle to comprehend sentences or paragraphs. V/V teaches students who struggle with reading comprehension and language processing to build pictures in their minds as they listen to or read text, with the ultimate goal of being able to visualize the main idea or get the whole picture. This is called concept imagery.

TouchMath

TouchMath is a multisensory program that is suitable for students of all ages and learning styles. TouchMath has been proven to increase math performance in the classroom.

Individualized Instruction

Through individualized instruction, we are able to focus on the individual learning needs of our students. By taking into account each student’s learning style and focusing on their strengths, we help them achieve academic and personal success.

We help elementary, high school, CEGEP, and university students learn the subject content of their classes. We also help students prepare for end-of-year MELS exams at the elementary and high school levels, such as the Canadian History and Citizenship Education, Math, and Science and Technology courses at the end of grade 10.

Workshops

High School Entrance Exam Preparation

We would be pleased to work with your children to prepare them for writing entrance exams for their chosen high schools. The program will consist of two workshops offered prior to the entrance exams. These will be held on Saturday, September 8 and 15 at 9:00-12:00. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 514-631-9745.

  • Workshop 1 will focus on how to answer practice questions on basic skills in English: reading comprehension, spelling, grammar, etc. and mathematics. Students will also learn how to clearly and succinctly communicate ideas in writing.
  • Workshop 2 will focus on presenting oneself in an interview. Academic concepts will also be reviewed.

These two workshops will give students confidence and help to alleviate anxiety related to the exam and interview process. Our program includes study questions and take-home note packages to ensure that each student is fully prepared. Space is limited.

The cost is $195.00. Early-bird rate is $175.00 until June 8th.

Grade 9 and 10 History Exam Preparation

For many students, the Canadian History exam is the most challenging in all of high school. While the course itself is content-based, the testing is skills-based. Some of the skills required on the final exam include reading comprehension, essay writing, language proficiency, and the processing and synthesis of verbal and non-verbal information. Through no fault of their own, many Grade 9 and 10 students still have not mastered these skills.

Our skills-based workshops are unique in that they address the process of writing the final exam while teaching students the skills they will need on exam day. In our experience, content-based tutoring does not achieve this objective. These workshops will also give your child confidence and help alleviate any stress and/or anxiety related to the exam.

These workshops will be conducted in groups of approximately 12 students, to allow for more individual help for each student. Course content packages and practice materials will be provided. Space is limited.
