Tutoring, Homework and English Support (virtual)

In partnership with the Friends of Simon Tutoring Project and the City Centre Library, The SFU Surrey - TD Community Engagement Centre provides a no-cost tutoring outreach program targeted towards immigrant and refugee children in grades 5-9. This program is open to students who have immigrated to Canada, and to students who may have been born in Canada but whose parents/guardians have immigrated to Canada. The students must be in grades 5-9. 

Friends of Simon tutors are highly trained and qualified SFU students who speak a variety of second languages including French, Tagalog, Spanish, Romanian, Punjabi, and Czech.

Their tutoring expertise includes the following subject areas:

  • English
  • Math
  • Science
  • French
  • Social Studies
  • Humanities
  • and more!

The program is currently being offered virtually through Zoom technology due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program is offered on Mondays and Thursdays afternoons from 4-5:45 p.m.

Students can register for either Monday sessions OR Thursday sessions, NOT BOTH. This is to give everyone a fair chance to work with the tutors.

In-person program info (currently suspended)

The program begins in October and runs through to the beginning of June.

There will be two intakes for the program. Registration for October-January 31st will open in early September, and registration for February-June will open in early January.
