Introduction of Ministry

The tutorial ministry supports the educational development of students from grades 3 - 12. Our objectives are to:

  • Establish a good working relationship with the students.
  • Improve students' thinking and listening skills.
  • Encourage students to have respect for God, themselves and other people.
  • Establish rules of conduct and encourage good behavior.
  • Motivate students to organize materials and develop good study habits.

Mission Statement

Our mission as "Bible Believing, Christ Centered and Spirit Led" tutors is to help our children improve their performance in Grammar, Reading, Writing and Mathematics.

We strive to help the students develop skills to problem solve, think independently, improve their grades and test scores, build self-confidence and self-esteem and to always acknowledge the Creator, God.
