Who We Serve
We serve Metropolitan Vancouver elementary and high school students. Students are referred to TTS and TAS by principals, resource teachers, counsellors, and/or teachers or by students and families who directly contact the organization.
Students are vetted based on financial and academic need for subsidized tutoring and require a qualified educator’s recommendation. We do not discriminate on the basis of current academic performance but evaluate progress throughout the program to ensure students are meeting their academic goals regardless of their starting points.
We provide an essential resource for students in low-income communities. While a high percentage of Metro Vancouver students face the extra challenges of poverty, TAS for the past 25 years has enabled thousands of such students to receive quality one-to-one tutoring to help equalize their chances of academic success.
Good Teachers + Hard Work = Academic Success
Take household income out of the equation
