Shaping Future Leaders

Politics, Civics, and Careers are important subjects in the secondary school curriculum. These courses give students the opportunity to learn about their civic duties, democratic responsibilities, how to navigate the world of work, as well as various political and social issues that current countries and leaders all around the world need to tackle. Our tutors seek to inspire our students who have a passion for these subject areas, and give confidence to those who may be struggling.

Our Approach

Through one on one sessions, we teach students the fundamentals of good citizenship in an advanced liberal democracy. By analyzing current and past events, the crucial watershed moments of political enfranchisement in history, and through analysis of job markets and projections for the workers of tomorrow, we help ground students in their present world and teach them their role in it.


Individualized plans are always designed with each student in mind - that's why we meet with you and your child first, so that we can get a better understanding of what they need to feel more confident along their learning journey.

It's also why every first session is free - we're so confident in our services that we don't accept any payment for the first session, letting you decide whether or not you'd like to continue with our program!
