John Williams is the owner and co-founder of StudySpot Educational Services. Over the past 15 years John has with worked directly and indirectly with 100’s adolescent students and their families around the Greater Toronto area.
John and StudySpot founder Steve Udvari were hockey teammates at the University of Waterloo and later coached AAA hockey together in the Greater Toronto Hockey League during the late 1990’s. In 2003, John Williams joined Steve as partner at StudySpot. John brought to StudySpot his philosophy and approach to communicating and motivating teenage boys and girls. He and Steve adopted a traditional model for athletic success and applied it to academic success, one that focuses on the interplay between natural ability, effort, and skill development. This unique approach to helping students formed the foundation for our Academic Coaching service.
Today, John manages all the day to day activities of StudySpot Toronto including initial consultation of new families, hiring and training of our coaches, and the continued research and development for our Academic Coaching service. John holds workshops and presents to parent and student groups around the GTA.
