As students, we all want to learn as much as we can from any course we take.

We would like to get the best grade, too!

This course will help you achieve that goal.It will help you work toward becoming that A+ student you always wanted to be.

The lectures are well explained and there are assignments, discussions, and quizzes to help you retain the information and practice your new knowledge.

(Don't be afraid - the assignments are optional!)

Also, you have the option to receive feedback on assignments from me (no additional fees for this bonus!).

I have over 20 years experience teaching students of all ages and abilities.

If you are a student between the ages of 12 to 112, this course has tools that will assist you to develop better study and learning strategies.

If you are a parent who wants the best education for your child, Become an A+ Student can help you know what steps to take.

The course is active and alive with discussions and new information being added over time to increase the value to you at no additional cost!

I genuinely look forward to working with you.

Let’s start learning.

Education for You!

I have owned and operated L.T.L. Tutoring Central since 1996, providing private tutoring services to students of all ages and skill levels.

My online courses have received many compliments and positive testimonials as well.  

I have presented video lessons for various organizations and groups and taught individual lessons to students from around the world - often setting up programs specific to their needs.

Also, I created and delivered an ESL/EFL program for scientists and technicians at the Guelph division of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

My primary focus is on English, math, and study skills- helping students learn how to learn.

I am an Honours Bachelor of Arts graduate with distinction from the University of Guelph in English/psychology - completing 62 courses, many in the field of education including philosophy of education and psychology of education.
