Black Star Tutoring

Jaku Konbit proudly offers students in grades 3 to 12, in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, the opportunity to achieve academic success with the Black Star Tutoring Program.

Black Star Tutoring is a mobile tutoring program that provides one-on-one tutoring services to all elementary and high school students. There is a special focus on children and youth, especially newcomers and immigrants, who may need assistance overcoming academic barriers and cultural challenges. Black Star Tutoring is a comprehensive, culturally-based, and affordable program.

Black Star Tutoring uses a one-on-one approach, so, both the tutors and students benefit from a personalized lesson plan. As a mobile service, students can receive in-home tutoring or meet their tutor at a local library in Ottawa.

The program is also available to students who aim to “reach ahead” by advancing their knowledge and understanding in a particular subject or field. Tutoring services are offered in various core subjects, namely Math, Science, English, and French, by highly competent, university-educated tutors who reflect the immigrant community that is today’s Ottawa-Gatineau. At a cost of $25 per hour, for one-on-one tutoring sessions, BLACK STAR TUTORING offers an affordable alternative compared with similar services in the region.
