Learning and Homework Help

We offer several opportunities for children to improve their reading, math and language skills. 

Read On Summer Tutoring

Kids in grades 2-6 are paired with a trained tutor for two-weeks of one-on-one tutoring sessions in the summer. Free tutoring is available for reading, math or French. Registration opens in June.

While tutors are specially trained and have experience working with children, tutors are not qualified to work with children with special needs.

Tutoring sessions will be held at the Main Branch (Mon.- Fri.) and the St. Paul Branch (Tues. - Sat.)

Online registration opens Saturday, June 8 at 9:30 a.m. Only one session per child is allowed.
