A young-adult student, Nicolas Brunet, is grateful for the brain-training programs he did while at the Centre
“Strategic Learning Centre has helped me to shape my thoughts and coordinate the way my mind works when approaching both personal and school-related work. The team has done wonders and they helped me in areas where I did not even know help was necessary. I wanted to thank Dara Goldsmith, one of the Centre’s program directors, for all that she has done for me during the summer. Contrary to my first thoughts, the Centre’s programs were based entirely on scientific research; unlike other treatments, the effects are not based on placebo.
Strategic Learning Centre has greatly improved my academic skills and I will be forever grateful for what the team did for me. I am truly happy to have been helped by you!”
Julian Hung & Sow Fun Lee talk about the SLC process and how the programs changed their children's lives
“Our children had been having difficulty in their studies for some time. We had tried a number of different approaches but with limited success. Strategic Learning Centre was recommended to us by the resource teacher at their school and by a child psychologist. SLC immediately began with an interview of us as parents and a series of tests for our children to get to the root of their problems. After reviewing the results with us, they got our kids started on various brain training programs (IM, FF, Cellfield).
Our kids are now active in a number of remedial programs (LIPS, EMS, JUMP Math). We have also participated in a writing workshop and high school preparation classes. Throughout this intense effort, SLC has provided outstanding support. They have been with us every step of the way, identifying the issues, guiding us through the options, accommodating our schedules and giving us much needed encouragement. Most of all, every one of their teachers has been wonderful in building a rapport with my children, showing that they care for them and spending all the time and effort necessary to understand and help them.
As a result, my children have shown tremendous improvement in both their general ability to get organised, focus on what’s important and work things out, as well as in their capability in specific subject areas (English, French, Math). This in turn has led to greater overall self-confidence in everything they do. SLC has come at a critical time for our family. Although it has required a major sacrifice on our part, it has been completely worth it.
Thanks to SLC, we feel that our children are obtaining the skills to enable them to be successful in their academics and in their lives. While we still have a long way to go, we feel that our children are now back on track and that they have a bright future ahead of them. We are truly grateful to SLC.”
The Golabs recognize Strategic Learning Centre’s unique approach
“What we loved about Strategic Learning Centre is that they conducted a thorough assessment with both our daughters, so we understood what their unique issues were. And within only a couple of months of working with Tina and Kimberley, both their confidence levels and their marks improved dramatically.
Strategic Learning Centre gave our kids the foundation for learning, something that will be with them for life.”

Grace Calabrese explains how Strategic Learning Centre really cares
“My sons have benefited tremendously from Strategic Learning Centre. The Centre conducts thorough assessments and offers excellent programs. Teachers take the time to talk with you and support you – from accompanying you to meet with a principal to recommending a speech therapist.
Daniel and Michael now get As and Bs, and their self-esteem has shot through the roof. Strategic Learning Centre really cares about your child’s success.”

Elyse Desforges credits Strategic Learning Centre for her daughter’s success
“When my daughter, Anastasia, was having difficulty at school, we tried private tutoring and a group program at another learning centre. She showed no improvement. It was Strategic Learning Centre’s unique techniques and exclusive programs that finally helped Anastasia become a fluent reader.
Her understanding of math concepts has also improved dramatically. Thanks to Strategic Learning Centre, Anastasia is now a confident, successful learner.”
Elyse Desforges, mother of Anastasia de Kovachich (10)
Angie Morais talks about why she switched to Strategic Learning Centre
“After I found out Kayla was dyslexic, I tried several learning centres. It wasn’t until we came to Strategic Learning Centre that her reading really improved. They identified important issues and recommended programs I had never been offered before.
At six years old, it was like her eyes opened for the first time. She wouldn’t be where she is today without Strategic Learning Centre.”
