Parents, when it comes to your child’s education we deliver Real Life Results!

Scholars Education Centre has been tutoring in Peterborough for over 13 years.  We specialize in creating and implementing customized programs for students of all ages. The individualized nature of our programs allows us to assist both those who are looking to catch up, and those students who are seeking enrichment.

Centre Information

All of our tutoring programs are taught by our friendly and highly qualified teachers, and with the support of our therapy dogs Abby Road and Ruby Tuesday. We are conveniently located in the south end of Peterborough in the historic DeLaval building, at the corner of Park and Lansdowne (beside Staples).  Click here to take a virtual tour of the Peterborough Scholars Education Centre!

Over the years we have helped elementary students improve their math and writing skills, and have taught hundreds of children to learn how to read! Our Life Track Tutoring program has aided countless high school students in reaching their full academic potential through tutoring in: Math, English, Chemistry, Biology, Calculus, Advanced Functions, Physics, French, and much more! Scholars has also assisted many adult learners in furthering their careers with computer courses and academic upgrading.

Our learning centre is committed to enhancing programs that help children and adults with learning disabilities and we are a certified provider of the Fast ForWord® program.
