There is a growing body of adults out there who are looking to improve their academic skills, such as reading, comprehension, essay and creative writing, critical thinking and math. There is a lot of research that has been conducted on how children and adults learn. Some of the main differences between how children and adults learn are that children are more likely to learn through exploration and play, while adults are more likely to learn through reading and lectures. Children also have a shorter attention span than adults and are more likely to be motivated by rewards and praise.

There are lots of young adults among our clientele who used to struggle with reading, comprehension, numeracy, and writing but only came to realize there is support available when they were older.

We are ready to help with our individually tailored programs and approach.
Other adult students who are looking to improve their language acquisition skills and English as a second language mastery would be better off looking for support with language centres.
