Our Philosophy

Hope for Relief strives to provide its students with a unique and enriching learning experience. We guarantee exceptional student-tutor pairing, organized and professional learning, and a caring and relaxed atmosphere. Hope for Relief ensures that each student grows academically in a comfortable, safe and enjoyable environment. We are dedicated to finding tutors who are passionate about learning, committed to their jobs, and who are caring and compassionate. Because each student is different, we make sure that our tutors are innovative, flexible and understanding of every student's needs. We are committed to our tutors, students, and their parents and believe it is essential to communicate regularly in order to provide each student with the best possible learning experience.

Once a student has been approved for the program, Hope for Relief will match the student with the volunteer. Every effort will be made to match the student with a tutor who has specific experience in the subject(s) requiring assistance. After a time and day have been agreed upon, the student and tutor will meet at a pre-approved location.

For ease of access and the safety of everyone involved, meetings will take place at a campus library of Western University. Hope for Relief will pay for parking and transportation expenses incurred by parents bringing their children to campus.

The sessions will not follow a set timetable, rather they will be run by the tutors based on the needs of the individual student. This relaxed nature of the program allows the students to gain the help they need without the added stress that is often present in the classroom. It is amazing to see how much one hour of tutoring each week does to boost not only a student's grades, but also their confidence. This service has touched the lives of many children in this community and we look forward to continue doing so.
