The “Twist” method is used in conjunction with a multi-faceted approach to learning, which involves combining Life Skills Based Education, Project Based Learning, and VARK® Learning Styles.
Life Skills Based Education refers to an interactive process of teaching and learning that enables learners to acquire knowledge and to develop attitudes and skills that foster healthy, positive lifelong learning behaviours.
Project Based Learning determines how our individualized tutoring programs are structured.
VARK® is a questionnaire that helps you learn by suggesting strategies you should be using to learn. The four identified learning styles are: Visual, Auditory, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic. Learn more about VARK on at How Does The Twist Work.

Let’s just say you won’t need to remortgage your house! One of our core values is transparency, which is why our costs are all explained in detail on our Pricing page.
For private tutoring, the price per hour is $55 if less than ten sessions are booked and the location is the library. If the location is your home, then the price per hour is $60 if less than ten sessions are booked. If ten or more 1+ hour sessions are booked, the price is $49 an hour if the location is the library, or $55 an hour if the location is your home.
We also have group tutoring sessions available at a lower price point of either $20 per hour or $30 per hour. When we have our initial phone conversation, we will be able to determine which opportunity is best for your child.
Every new family starts with an initial Twisted Tutoring Planning Meeting that is $97. At this session, we require a one-month deposit for your child’s first month of tutoring sessions. This deposit is used for the first month of tutoring; it is not held onto. The exact amount of the initial deposit depends on how many one-on-one tutoring sessions are booked, as the hourly rate decreases with 10 or more one-hour sessions.
We invite you to think of tutoring as an investment in your child’s future. Why? With the confidence gained and the skills acquired, your child will only soar from this point forward.
Please call us at 1-866-977-4433 or It depends… We wish we could give you a concrete answer right now, but we need to get to know you first! We work with every family to determine the ideal length of time for tutoring. Most elementary students start to lose focus after the first hour, while high school students can often handle longer blocks of studying. Of course, your family’s schedule, budget, goals, and personal feelings will also be factored in. After our initial consultation, we’ll be able to recommend a starting point for session length before you make any final commitments with us.

No! Your initial Twisted Tutoring Plan Meeting helps us explain our methodology, talk strategy, and get all your paperwork in order. Returning families have less paperwork and are already familiar with most of the information we cover in our initial meeting. Therefore, the initial meeting is entirely optional for returning families.
As of March 2019, tutoring is tax deductible if your child is eligible for the disability tax credit or has a learning disability. For the latter, a note from the doctor would suffice and it would be deducted as a medical expense.
