Academic Tutor

At Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School (KGMS), we believe that every child is unique and that their differences should be celebrated. We believe in an innovative approach to education that’s forward-thinking yet rooted in history. We believe that every child deserves to fit in, to feel like they’re on the inside. Above all, we believe in the potential of our students. Our students work in a dynamic classroom setting that includes the whole class, small group and one-on-one tutoring.

Many students benefit from the Orton Gillingham (OG) tutoring program for many it is an integral part of our students’ education. Each student up to grade 8 receives one block of tutoring daily. High school students in grades 9 to 12 are tutored on a needs basis as determined by the student’s educational team. Tutoring may also focus on Mathematics instruction, Social Emotional Learning, and target interventions in collaboration with our Speech and Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist or Developmental Specialist.

KGMS is currently recruiting tutors to join our diverse team. We offer mentorship in the OG approach, but we are also looking for tutors who can support our students in other complementary academic and/or developmental areas.
