Our Humble Beginning
Beginning as private tutors, instructing religious studies and the Canadian curriculum, our original goal was to provide students with an enriched learning experience that would have a life-long impact. We truly believe in serving every student, and our community at large, with excellence, by offering the benefits of the spirit: compassion, faith, fortitude, generosity, gentleness, goodness, joy, kindness, love, modesty, patience, peace, piety, temperance, understanding and wisdom.
Our Culture and Mission
Amazing Tutors is really about making our own way. We wish to serve our community with excellence by building our community-based satellite centers from the heart and from the ground up. We understand that not every parent has the financial resource to access the education their child deserves. At Amazing Tutors, however, we care about every child, rich or poor; regardless of culture, background, or religion, we include all children. That is why we assumed a caring and supportive role in providing superior tutoring programs and services at an affordable rate.
Our Unique Vision
We feel that the greatest gift we can give our students is the key to learning the tools to help them become independent, efficient, motivated and ultimately successful through out their school and adult hoods. No matter what, we will do everything in our power to help our students regain the belief in themselves and their abilities. Our students' success is our success and nothing takes precedence over that unique vision.
