We know that learning continues outside the classroom and that students and parents need access to resources.
The Ontario government and its partners offer tutoring services for students to help them succeed.
Homework Help is free, real-time math tutoring by certified Ontario teachers available to students in Grades 7 to 10 in all English-language school boards. Students have access to live, interactive online math help funded by the Ministry of Education. This program is password protected and not available to the general public.
TVOKids Homework Zone
Homework Zone is a TVO segment that invites students to call or email questions to a teacher who provides answers, solutions and tips on air. The focus of the segment is on literacy, math and science, and an archive of the videos is made available online for students, parents and educators.
SOS Devoirs, which is operated by TFO, provides tutoring services and educational resources such as dictionaries and multimedia learning objects to French-language students from Grades 1 to 12. Students can get help in any subject matter from specialized teachers via chat, by phone and by e-mail. SOS Devoirs' tutoring services are available Monday to Thursday, from 3:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., during the school year.
Tutors in the Classroom
The Tutors in the Classroom initiative assists school boards in hiring post-secondary students enrolled in Ontario colleges and universities to work as tutors in JK to Grade 6 classrooms. The tutors support the work of classroom teachers by working directly with students to reinforce previously taught literacy and numeracy concepts and skills.
Ontario Focused Intervention Partnership Tutoring
OFIP Tutoring supports school boards in initiating or extending programs that help students in Grades JK to 6 to strengthen their literacy and numeracy skills beyond the regular school day. This includes programs such as before and after-school tutoring, homework clubs and cultural programs that focus on literacy and numeracy skill development. Partnerships with existing community-based programs that provide tutoring for students are encouraged.
