Assessments
KMT The Learning Group employs proven assessment methodologies to structure direction for each individual’s path, if and when it’s required. We work collaboratively with leading psychologists to deliver the most appropriate psychological, psycho-educational, or psycho-vocational assessment geared to each unique situation. These include, but are not limited to: Personality Tests, Myers-Briggs, and/or True Colours.

Academic Tutoring
KMT The Learning Group provides specialized tutoring for early learners and high school students. Our customized one-on-one sessions are designed to address specific learning needs and interests of individuals who are Gifted, ESL, students that learn differently (LD), or with Attention Deficit (Hyperactive) Disorder (ADD/ADHD). Recent studies indicate that approximately 43.7% of all exceptional students have a learning disability.

Our tutoring programs are custom designed to provide remedial, grade level, and/or enrichment assistance. Parents may choose from tutoring options in the areas of:

  • Homework support
  • Individualized programs designed to upgrade skills
  • SSAT Prep
  • Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE)
  • SAT

We offer a customized high school preparation option geared to each student’s capability and aptitude, and designed to facilitate the transition to high school. We also teach practical and essential study skills and organizational techniques, as required.

Whenever possible, KMT integrates assistive technology to support full curriculum participation to meet or exceed curriculum standards. Our dedicated instructors are certified (where applicable) in Interactive Whiteboards, such as SMARTBoards, Dragon Naturally Speaking versions, Kurzweil 1000 and 3000, Inspiration, Smart Ideas, Classroom Suite, Premier Suite, WYNN, and Word Q.

As referenced on the Ministry of Education’s website, significant research on LD has been conducted since the release of the Policy/Program Memorandum (PPM) 8, Learning Disabilities in 1982. Special education policies and school board practices have also evolved in accordance with the Ministry’s commitment to improving the achievement of all students, including students with LD. KMT The Learning Group operates within the guidelines of the Ontario Curriculum by the Ministry of Education and Training. We work collaboratively with parents, classroom teachers, and other professionals (e.g., speech-language pathologists, family doctors, psychologists) who are involved with the student.

KMT’s certified instructors provide Smart Board Training to bring curriculums alive in classrooms or corporations.
