Welcome to StudySpot Durham

Our philosophy is simple: Good students possess certain skills that allow them to reach their potential and manage school more effectively.

Since 1999, StudySpot has provided Academic Coaching support to middle school, high school and university students in the Greater Toronto Area. Although coaching is standard practice in most areas of human achievement, most notably in athletics, it has been relatively ignored in academics. At StudySpot Durham, our goal is to equip students with the tools they require to be effective learners overall, and to provide them with the opportunity for improvement that will last throughout their school lives.
