Yes, it is possible to reschedule a tutoring session. Please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule a tutoring session and avoid cancellation fees.
7. Can I cancel a tutoring session?
Sessions canceled less than 48 hours before the scheduled date are subject to cancellation fees of up to 100% of the session cost. Please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule a tutoring session and avoid cancellation fees. We recommend rescheduling a tutoring session to allow your child to continue their learning.
8. Can I book sessions for the entire school year?
Yes, you can book sessions in advance for the entire school year from September to June. A routine of a tutoring session per week or month, for example, can be beneficial for a student needing constant support. Creating a regular tutoring routine helps students develop self-confidence and autonomy, and feel comfortable with the teaching approach, thus promoting constant and positive progress towards academic success.
9. Can we book sessions specifically for exam preparation or catching up on a course?
Yes, Aiducation's tutoring services are designed to meet various educational needs, including exam preparation and academic catch-up. Be sure to fill out the sign-up form well in advance to plan the number of necessary sessions and ensure that your child is ready.
10. In which provinces do you offer tutoring?
Tutoring is currently offered in Northwestern Ontario and Manitoba. Visit the Services page for more details on the communities served and contact us to discuss the need for academic support in your community. We would be happy to provide French tutoring services elsewhere.
11. Who can I contact if I have questions?

12. How do I know if my child needs tutoring?
Talk to your child's teacher to assess their needs. Our tutors are trained to meet a wide range of educational needs: from homework assistance to French enrichment, from academic catch-up to exam preparation, including support in a homeschooling context. You might also choose to book sessions simply to provide additional support to your child during the school year.
13. Do you discuss with my child's teacher?
At the parent's request, the tutor will communicate with your child's teacher to ensure good teamwork.
14. Are the tutors certified teachers?
A teaching certificate is not required to be a tutor at Aiducation. However, our staff has experience with young people and sometimes post-secondary studies are necessary to specifically assist high school students. Our tutors are trained to understand the Francophone curriculum of the province's Ministry of Education, to meet various educational needs, and to adapt to each student's learning style.
