In 1989, Karen Foley, now officially retired, co-founded Strategic Learning Centre.
Providing parents with an alternative to standard tutoring methods, she introduced a unique one-on-one teaching approach designed to get to the root of each student’s academic problems. Over the last several years, Mrs. Foley has been instrumental in making several new and cutting-edge learning programs available to Montreal families. With more than 30 years of experience, she developed a keen sense of how to identify and solve even the most challenging learning problems. A mother of three grown children, she also understood how to best support parents when their child is having difficulty in school.
As a result, the centre has helped thousands of students become confident, successful learners. Frequently sought out for her expertise, Mrs. Foley has conducted many workshops for parents and teachers on reading, writing, study skills, and learning disabilities. She taught effective written communication at McGill University, and developed and wrote a successful study skills program that is currently offered at the Centre. Karen has been quoted in the Montreal Gazette, Montreal Families, and Homemakers Magazine.
