Amber Scotchburn, founder

Our Twisted Team is passionate and invested in each of our Twisted Learner’s successes and failures. Our Twisted Process is transparent, as are our fees. We go above and beyond for every Learner. This is not just another tutoring business, but it is  also a way of life!

All of our Twisted Tutors have Criminal Record Checks and most are certified teachers. We have specialty tutors for those with specific needs: higher level maths, languages, and special education, to name a few. We are flexible with our locations and scheduling!

Our Twisted Tutors do not work in isolation: therefore, they always have a team behind them to offer support, which means your children have that same team behind them.

We are pleased to introduce the following tutors to our ASTC Tutoring…With A Twist Team. Each of them bring a wealth of knowledge and an amazing amount of energy. You will see by the following biographies and tutors’ own words about “The Twist” that each individual brings their own uniqueness and set of talents!

Get Started today!  We’d love to talk this important decision through with you. Call us at: 1-866-977-4433 or  fill out our detailed form online.

PS:  If you are interested in joining our Twisted Team, we would love to hear from you as we are always looking for Twisted Tutors! Please review this page to see if you are a right fit for us and if we are a right fit for you!
