What level do I register my child in?
When registering select the level that corresponds with your child's 2020-2021 School Year Grade (i.e. Level 2 = Grade 2)
Can I register for 2 or more subjects per session?
The Fall/Winter/Spring sessions are 1x per week, 1 subject per registration. You may register for a 2nd or 3rd subject via additional registrations for another day and/or time.
The Summer sessions are 2x per week and you have the option to register for up to 2 subjects (1 subject per day).
Do you offer Make-Up Lessons?
Yes, but make-up lessons are based on class composition & availability. You will need to submit an email request through the Contact Us page.
Make-up lessons can also be carried over to the next session your child is registered.
What is the Membership/Enrollment fee?
A one time registration fee for a set number of registration periods.
*Special for Summer 2020, Fall 2020 & Winter 2021: annual fee of $30/student (from Summer 2020-Winter 2021) Membership.
Starting Spring 2021: Annual fee of $60/student (Spring to Winter).
What is the diagnostic assessment?
Students complete a diagnostic assessment at the first lesson for each subject registered per session to identify their level for each skill per subject. Assessments are individual and questions auto generate until a concise evaluation of the child is completed - thus some students will be answering more questions than others in the same grade.
- K-Gr 2 will be on average 15 to 30 minutes per subject registered
- Gr 3 & up will be on average 40-50 minutes per subject registered
*Students will be permitted to take breaks if needed during the assessment
What is a Learning Path?
The individualized learning path will be created based on the student's diagnositic assessment. It consists of the following 4 items:
1. Engaging & interactive Lesson
2. Practice Questions
3. Mastery Quiz
4. Progress Check
Does the Math/Language/Reading content meet the Ontario Curriculum Requirements?
Two Ontario Certified elementary teachers vetted the Math/Language/Reading content overlaps the Ontario curriculum requirements sufficiently.
Even though the tutoring software is used internationally (including Canada), it is based on the American curriculum requirements. There are two limitations to the current content:
1. Imperial measurement is used. Metric questions are expected to be incorporated for 2021. Conversion questions will be skipped in the Learning Path. Supplementary metric curriculum is expected to be available for Fall 2020.
2. New Ontario Math Requirements: As these requirements were just recently launched the current math curriculum will not include the following new requirements:
a. Financial literacy
Jack of Sports will be working with Ontario Certified teachers to develop/identify curriculum resources to supplement those two sub topic areas. Tentative deadline is Spring 2021.
*Please note there are still plenty of other universal math skills for your child to cover within each session.
*The tutoring program is set up to supplement the learning of subject skills not to provide or replace a full year of school.
Will there be Parent Consultations/Progress updates?
Parent Consultations will be conducted at the 2nd, mid session (only for the Fall & Spring Sessions) and final lesson. Lessons will be shortened to 45 minutes to accommodate the parent consultations. During the 10 minutes parents will be moved to a private breakout room with the coach to review the child's results on the assessment (2nd day) and progress on the learning path (mid session & final session).
