Thank you once again for this magnificent program!

My name is J. L., parent of L. and L. who both have greatly benefited from Tutoring Aid Society’s generous tutoring subsidy programs since 2021.

Our family immigrated to Canada in 2018. Settling in a completely new environment has been a great challenge for sure on many levels and even so for the children, who started schools in Gr. 1 and Gr. 5 with almost none and very limited English language skills. Thankfully, both children soon adapted to the new culture well and made friends. In the meantime, overcoming academic challenges has been particularly tough path, and still an ongoing struggle. It isn’t only about the academic excellency itself but for immigrant children’s like ours, it becomes an essential tool for them to gain their confidence and self-esteem to see themselves as capable as their native English-speaking peers.

In that aspect, having extra tutoring has helped our children enormously and ensuring continuous tutoring has been one of the top priorities for me. We have so much to appreciate and be grateful for life but it does become quite challenging especially as a single mom to raise 2 children in one of the most expensive cities in the world. I have 2 jobs to be able to sustain our lives and provide for children which isn’t always easy. Therefore, TAS subsidy program has been particularly helpful. This opportunity also made me dream of one day to give back to the society by helping those who don’t have enough, and to support such wonderful initiatives such as TAS programs.

Last but not the least, I would very much like to express my sincere gratitude to the wonderful staffs and tutors at the TAS for their exceptional dedication, professionalism and kindness. They deserve more attention and appreciation from the community for their valuable works.

Thank you once again for this magnificent program!
Best regards,
