Our Mission

Since 1989, Strategic Learning Clinic has helped thousands of students become the best that they can be by teaching them how to learn.

Good marks are not the only end-goal. They’re just the beginning.

Academic and personal success are the foundation on which a child’s future life and personal fulfillment are built. We take this fundamental responsibility seriously, and for nearly 30 years have focused on equipping children with the tools and skills they need to become successful, motivated, and happier students.

Traditional methods such as tutoring may not be the definitive answer. Nothing is more important to us than giving your child the best future and the happiest life possible. With our specialized programs, talented and dedicated staff, and thorough process, the Clinic addresses the root causes of a student’s learning difficulties, providing them with the skills they will need in the future.

Our History

In 1989, Karen Foley co-founded Strategic Learning Clinic as a response to parents’ need for an alternative to standard tutoring methods.

According to Mrs. Foley, how and not what a child learns should be the basis for remediation. Thanks to her vision, Strategic Learning Clinic has provided several new and cutting-edge learning programs to Montreal families for decades. Her unique one-on-one teaching approach was developed to address how each student perceives, processes, and retains information.

We have developed a keen sense of how to identify and solve even the most challenging learning problems, while taking into account the child’s emotional needs. Our clinic has helped thousands of students become confident, successful learners – and we’ve been doing it for nearly 30 years!

Mrs. Foley has conducted many workshops for parents and teachers on reading, writing, study skills, and learning disabilities, taught Effective Written Communication at McGill University, and developed and wrote a successful study skills program that is currently offered at the Clinic. Karen has been quoted in the Montreal Gazette, Montreal Families, and Homemakers Magazine.

The right assessment is key. In our 4-step process, we:

1. Consult

Conduct an initial, face-to-face consultation where we review your child’s personal and academic strengths and weaknesses, developmental milestones, and past and current academic performance and behavior.

2. Recommend

Recommend testing (when necessary) to help us develop
the right solutions for your child.

3. Develop

Develop and implement a customized education plan.

4. Monitor

Monitor and re-evaluate progress to ensure that your child is moving ahead according to plan.

Our services are tax deductible!
