In 1988, V2 was established as a small in home tutoring service to assist students having difficulties at school. The service grew quickly and over the years we have expanded, but our mission has fundamentally remained the same. We provide one-on-one Direct Instruction tutoring in core academic areas to students! Dr. Lanette Ward, a registered Psychologist in Ontario is the Centre’s Executive Director. Dr. Ward has been with the company almost from its inception and she possesses over 25 years of Direct Instruction (DI) experience.
Since 1988, our goal has remained the same – to help students reach their achievement potential. Our tutors are highly trained Direct Instruction Specialists who possess the requisite knowledge and skills necessary to work with children and adolescents with a variety of learning needs. We primarily serve students at our Centre on Merton St., but we also provide online tutoring.
We teach basic academic programs; including reading, math, language, comprehension, spelling, expressive writing, and cursive writing.
Program performance levels go from Kindergarten to Grade 8 (and beyond for poor readers).
All programs have accelerated sequences to meet individual needs.Downolad pdf
Prior to commencing any direct instruction program, students must be tested. These tests determine the program, level, and cycle the student should be placed at. For example, we offer 6 different reading programs.
To Access our Services, Please give us a call or e-mail us to start your in-take process. We will be happy to provide you with any additional information.
Placement testing is done at our Centre at 124 Merton Street, Suite 103 or virtual. We do not repeat tests which have already been done. Should your child already have test results, please provide these, to assist in making the best possible program decisions.
Following the test, findings and programming decisions will be discussed with the family.
While the philosophies and most teaching techniques of all Direct Instruction programs are the same, the content of each program differs and is geared to a specific student’s profile. Additional information about the student, gained during the placement test, helps drive other critical program decision making.
