As part of the Ministry of Education’s Learning Recovery Action Plan, HWDSB has received a significant financial investment for comprehensive tutoring support programs in all HWDSB schools.

Why Tutoring? 

Throughout the last two years, education’s collective focus has been on delivering the best educational experience while protecting schools against the spread of COVID-19. Despite these efforts, the pandemic has had many impacts on the learning development and mental health of students.

In order to support students in their learning recovery, free comprehensive tutoring supports will be provided to students. This tutoring will focus on literacy, numeracy and foundational skills, and will be delivered through community organizations partnered with HWDSB.

Students interested in receiving tutoring through this program will be able to access small group in-person tutoring or after school tutoring through this program. Both elementary and secondary tutoring will be available for students.

For Elementary Students: 

  • Tutoring will be offered after school in each school where staff is available
  • Subjects and focus areas will include:
    • Phonics Academy (Kindergarten to Grade 1)
    • Math Blasters (Grades 3 & 6)
    • Foundational Skills Support (Kindergarten to Grade 8)

For Secondary Students:

  • Tutoring will be offered outside of the instructional day
  • Students will receive up to three hours of tutoring per week
  • Will be conducted both in-person and virtually

Tutoring will be offered starting this spring and continue through the summer and fall terms.

At HWDSB, we are committed to fostering positive collaborations with our community. We see partnership as a mutually beneficial, collaborative relationship in which values, objectives, roles and responsibilities are shared for the purpose of enhancing learning and supporting system or service initiatives of the Board.

HWDSB is seeking community partners to support our tutoring program. Partners will be chosen through an RFI process (request for information).
