The Literary Tutor offers personalized in-home one-on-one tutoring to students ranging from grades 1 to 12. Unlike other tutoring companies that cover a general array of subjects, we focus extensively on providing world-class English tutoring services. This means you can count on us to equip your child with the effective tools and valuable knowledge they need to succeed in their English classes and feel confident in their everyday interactions. We also strive to help all of our students discover the depths of their imagination, so they may realize and fulfill their creative potential.


"The Literary Tutor did a great job tutoring and mentoring my son, Jack. After finishing his ESL classes in school, he jumped straight into grade 10 academic English and had to complete the OSSLT. He was worried and afraid of not being able to catch up with his class's pace, but with The Literary Tutor's help, I definitely see more confidence in him." - JASON, PARENT (JACK, GRADE 10 STUDENT)

"Not all students click into new concepts as easily as others, but The Literary Tutor teaches with examples and strategies that everyone can relate to. I go to my lessons eager to learn, because every lesson is packed with valuable information, practical skills for me to use in my daily life, writing assignments that put me ahead of my class, and most of all, a lot of fun!" - KRISHIGA, GRADE 10 STUDENT

"While Charmaine was my tutor, we wrote many different essays, critical reviews, autobiographies, and fictional stories. Because of her inspirational lessons and fun teaching methods, I always looked forward to every lesson. I believe that academic success is easy when a student meets the right teacher, and Charmaine undeniably made it easy for me. Being taught by her was such an amazing and enjoyable experience." - ANGEL, GRADE 11 STUDENT

"The Literary Tutor has been exceptionally helpful in improving my writing. Last year, English was my worst subject and I was having lots of trouble with my essay writing. This year, I decided to meet with my tutor every week, and the writing and reading skills I have acquired from her have allowed me to raise my average by 15%. I definitely recommend trying the literary tutor out." - MILES, GRADE 12 STUDENT

"I came to Canada in my late 20s, and I struggled with speaking English. With The Literary Tutor's help, I saw improvements in just a few months. Now, I am confident and have no trouble talking to people in English." - JOJO, MATURE ESL STUDENT

"What sets Charmaine apart from the rest is not only her vast knowledge in the field, but also her familiarity with the current high school program and how easy and fun she makes learning English Literature. I would recommend her over and over again! My son went from a 60 average to a 75 in just 2 months!" - ETHAN, GRADE 10 STUDENT
