In 1989, Karen Foley co-founded Strategic Learning Centre 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 Centre 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 centre 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 Centre.
