Our Approach

Do you want the best in academic support? We want that for you too.
in-home tutoring supports families

  • Do you worry about being able to help your child with his/her homework?
  • Are you concerned that your child is not being stimulated to his/her full potential?
  • Would you rather not spend time with your child fighting over homework?
  • Is your child struggling with a subject?
  • Does it seem to your child that everyone else in the class understands, but he/she doesn't?
  • Is your child bored in class?

Imagine the impact it could have on your child if someone were to sit beside her to help her; someone who knows how to make learning seem easy, someone who can show your child how math or physics or essay writing can be fun, someone who can help build your child's confidence and challenge her to be her best. Imagine how it could impact your family not to fight over homework! This type of support is invaluable!

We believe that students (and all of us) benefit from being creatively engaged in learning. We strive to create ways for students to have fun and be innovative in their learning. This type of approach to education requires authentic effort, energy and growth, and the involvement of a team: student, parent, teacher and tutor.

We take the guesswork out of selecting a tutor by matching your child’s academic needs and learning styles with just the right tutor. What type of teaching style suits you best? With a range of tutors, from new graduates to retired teachers, we can find the perfect match for you. Here is how we compare to other agencies and individual tutors.

We match students to professional tutors in Victoria, BC. We offer in-home tutorials in academic subjects, study skills, and homework support for grades one through university.

Smart Tutor Referrals is set apart from similar agencies by its professional approach and dedication to offering both flexibility and the highest quality educational support. We support your:

  • Needs
  • Goals
  • Learning Style
  • Schedule
  • Location

Smart Tutor Referrals comes from a values-based approach in supporting students and parents. This means that right from the start we work with you. We talk with you and your child to discuss and assess your child’s specific needs and goals, as well as his/her abilities and learning style. Then, bearing this in mind, we assign a tutor to suit your situation. We also consider the level of experience of the teacher, as well as his/her areas of expertise. We are committed to education, not just profit.

Your tutor will work with you according to your goals, learning style, ability, and schedule. Tutorials take place in your home, or a mutually agreed upon location, usually a school or library.

Research shows that tutoring is an extremely beneficial approach to education. Working one-on-one with a professional teacher has positive effects on learning, attitudes, and self-perception, producing increased confidence, and better grades. The positive impact of private tutoring is usually felt within the first month. Students report feeling more confident and enthusiastic; parents feel more relaxed and confident knowing their child is receiving professional one-on-one support. There is no doubt that private tutoring is one of the most effective approaches to education.
