About My Business:


The Tutor Group™ is a private tutoring and education consulting service operating across the GTA since 1979, under supervision of Janyce Lastman LL.B, Education Consultant and Case Manager. Here is a brief overview of my practice: EDUCATION CONSULTATION As an independent Education Consultant, I am familiar with a wide range of private schools and programs, plus many local public. public specialty options and separate schools. I specialize in matching children and teens to the "right" schools and programs, whether locally or internationally. I can also assist with any application, interview or portfolio process. But not all families need a school change. Some seek specific strategies and supports such as summer enrichment programs, community service opportunities, classroom accommodations or strategic course selection that can enhance a student's overall education experience and future success. My recommendations also address key complementary learning skills such as goal-setting, initiative, creativity, flexible thinking, social and communication skills, resilience and conflict resolution, academic self-esteem and self-advocacy. As case manager, I understand how to assist and place hard-to-serve children, youth and young adults, whether struggling with learning, emotional, medical, legal or other life challenges. I also strongly believe in supporting each family through this process. Recommendations may include alternative assessment approaches, specialist interventions, adaptive programming, undiscovered local resources, assistive technology and supports at home, school or community. Referrals to placements outside the home if required, from residential treatment and transition to special programs promoting leadership, life skills or independent living are also available. PERSONALIZED IN HOME PRIVATE TUTORING: Our in-home tutors offer many advantages. Students feel more at ease in their homes, the burden of transportation is removed from parents, and tutors can model study and organizational skills within the student's own workspace. Families feel more connected to the process with feedback from their tutor readily available. Our tutors work closely with parents while respecting older students' need for independence, and gladly liaise with school staff or other professionals with consent. Our tutors covers a wide variety of traditional subjects for most grade levels and ages, from Phonics and Math Facts to French and Physics, all one to one. Support also available in Study and Organization Skills, Essay Writing, Project Management etc. Our broad experience in personalized test-taking guidance gives students an added advantage on EQAO, OSSLT, GED, private school entrance exams including SSAT, or post-secondary and graduate tests such as PSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, GRE etc. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There can be no true teaching without first reaching a student – and those who attempt to get there by preaching soon negate both. - Janyce Lastman, Education Consultant and TTG Director For further information or to contact us, please visit our website
