 We have a professional tutoring space and classroom situated on a beautiful West Courtenay property on a quiet street.  The tutors at SOS believe in multisensory learning which involves a variety of materials. It is easier for us to work out of a classroom space versus travelling to our clients.  Each student has their own learning style and not every child requires the use of the same materials.
