Frequently Asked Questions:
How does P.E.N. differ from tutoring centres?
Our teachers are all qualified professionals many of whom have teaching experience at a post-secondary college or university level. Throughout the year we offer complimentary classes, free community workshops, and guest speaker events students and parents can enjoy.
How can parents get involved, support or engage with their children’s learning?
Additional sessions are available for students who need a little extra attention–at no additional charge. To keep learning fun, PEN offers parent/child programs so parents can participate with the child. Seeing real progress builds confidence in the student and trust with the parents.
How do I decide what to sign my child up for?
What is the intake process?
After a tour and initial conversation, our Enrollment Specialist will gather all necessary information and provide suggestions on a curriculum that works with the student’s needs and the family’s availability. Assessments with a faculty member are available if required.
Upon course selection, you will receive a welcome package and schedule.
