Dear Clients and Family
We have been working hard at Niagara Learning Academy to implement our new programs this past month. We hope you are taking advantage of the new programs we are offering.
This month we will celebrate Valentine’s Day and Family Day. Niagara Learning Academy will be open for Family Day. Therefore, if you are wanting to cancel your sessions for that day, please make sure to let us know ahead of time.
Our FREE English program has been doing well for its first weeks. We have been working on reading, summarizing main ideas and comprehension skills. For February, our focus will be on writing. Please remember, if you have a child (or a friend’s child) who does not take private tutoring lessons, they can still attend the class for $3.00. You can text/call us to reserve their spot. 905-229-8123
There has been some questions concerning our cancellation policies, so we have outlined them below. When cancelling a session, in order to avoid any charge, it must be cancelled ONE WEEK before the session is schedule. As Niagara Learning Academy works with a number of tutors and clients, this gives us time to properly cancel the tutors and make any necessary changes to the schedule. If a session is cancelled within a week BUT with more than 24hours notice, a $10.00 cancellation charge is applied to your account. If a session is cancelled within the 24 hours of the scheduled tutoring time, a $20.00 cancellation fee is applied.
We are currently in the winter season and the roads sometimes are hazardous for driving. Therefore, if school has been cancelled and you are not wanting to drive for your tutoring sessions the same day, they can be cancelled at no charge. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Dear Clients and Family
We hope everyone is having a great holiday season filled with family and friends. Hopefully everyone is able to do some resting and recharge for 2016.
January is brain teaser month at Niagara Learning Academy. This means that during each tutoring session, our younger clients will take part in some sort of brain teaser game. It should be a fun month!
Starting in January, Niagara Learning Academy will be starting a few new exciting programs.
IELTS Preparation Courses We will be starting to run evening courses on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. These classes will run 12 weeks consecutively. New clients must start on the first session. You will be required to take an English Proficiency Test before registering for the classes and this will determine if you will be in the 8 or 12 week program. If you pass the English Proficiency Test, you are able to skip through the first month. The course will focus on all aspects of the IELTS; reading, writing, listening and speaking. You will take part in many sample tests and exercises to help prepare you for the test. In addition, we will also be offering registration services for individuals who have a hard time registering for the IELTS.
If wanting more information (or to register) please talk to Caitlyn.
FREE English Class (for children/adolescents) We are excited to announce that starting in January, we will be offering a FREE one hour English Class to any clients who are currently participating in private tutoring. This class will run on Mondays from 6:00-7:00pm. Any children who are not currently taking private tutoring lessons can attend the classes for $3.00 a session.
