The KEY Difference
KEY offers a personalized tutoring service, which makes us different than most tutoring services. In each of our sessions, we evaluate a student’s specific strengths and weaknesses in order to customize a student specific learning plan. Many of our students have been with us for years and are considered to be part of our KEY family. We strive to provide the best tutoring service by employing and training some of BC’s most qualified educators to provide individualized first-rate support for students. We aim to cultivate each student’s 6 Cs - creativity, curiosity, critical thinking, collaboration, character, and confidence. We believe that a child’s learning is supported by the school and the family, and as such, our tutors provide frequent feedback to parents. Communication to parents in Mandarin is also available.
