A Message from our Director
Welcome to Summit Ridge Academy. My name is Carrie Smith and I am an Ontario Certified Teacher with more than 21 years of teaching experience and the Founding Director of Summit Ridge Academy. Not only am I a teacher, but I am also a mom to two neurodivergent children. I understand fully what it is like to have kids who need a bit more from us. We are here to support you every step of the way with your child's social, emotional, cognitive and academic developmental needs. We specialize in working with students who struggle with traditional teaching methods and have difficulty thriving in a regular classroom setting.

Remedial Math - Grades 1-8
Group or One to One Tutoring
Students will tackle mathematical concepts that have not yet been mastered, during one to one or small group sessions with a certified educator. A comprehensive math assessment will be conducted and is included in the hourly rate.
The remedial math sessions will develop your child’s confidence by focusing on foundational math skills and filling gaps caused by COVID or other issues. Students will strengthen their number sense by using hands on methods and manipulatives such as 100's grids, number lines, base ten blocks etc. They will explore methods for solving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions and strategies to work through word problems. There will also be a specific focus on learning math vocabulary associated with each math strand to ensure students know what the questions are asking. The course content will meet students at their developmental level and work toward their grade level expectations. The programming is based on the Ontario curriculum and will complement what is being taught in school
