Tutoring…With A Twist provides world-class tutoring services in Duncan, the surrounding area, and several other communities on Vancouver Island. Our tutors are local educators with experience in an array of subjects, including the updated British Columbia curriculum. Best of all, our tutors adapt their teaching style to match your child’s learning style, personality, and interests.

We have several tutoring formats, including private lessons and small group sessions, allowing you to choose the style that works best for your child and family. Most of our Duncan tutoring sessions occur at the downtown VIRL branch (in the Island Savings Centre) but we also have home-based tutoring for families that prefer this option.

So, what makes us different? We guarantee success beyond the classroom! Twisted Tutors focus on so much more than improved grades—we adapt our learning plans to embrace each student’s unique personality and develop strategies that help improve life skills and overall academic performance, in addition to the core learning objective.

Our students come to us with one or more focus subjects in mind, but we do so much more. We teach our students to love learning and that love isn’t contained to a single subject area. Instead, Twisted learners learn skills that help them succeed not only in the classroom but also in life itself.

Twisted Tutoring Testimonials

My Twisted Tutor connects with me, is knowledgeable about the subject he’s teaching me, and really helps me prepare for tests (which helps my test anxiety).”
JZ, High School Math Tutor

“I love how my Twisted Tutor used the things that I LOVE, to help me learn. It was very helpful to get me to like and understand the material. Other students would really like my tutor because she has a sweet personality and is very open.”
GB, Elementary Student

My Twisted Tutor believed in me. She knew I could do it so then I knew I could do it. Also, she was fun which made learning fun. She also taught me that if I did the harder work first, I could reward myself with doing something I loved.”
– DF, Homeschooled Elementary Multi-Subject Student

“Our daughter had a lot of anxiety about school, especially math. Our Twisted Tutor was able to teach our daughter in a kind, patient manner that not only resulted in the grades we wanted, but in my daughter understanding and actually enjoying math again.”
– AD, Parent of High School Math Student

“I have already recommended Tutoring…With A Twist because I could see the difference when my son was taught how to study. We love our Twisted Tutor and cannot wait to see her again.”
– DF, Parent of an Elementary Math, Science & French Student
