About our RISE program

In our Research-informed Individualized Student Education (RISE) program, students work one-to-one with a qualified instructor on ongoing, remedial support, explicit instruction, tutoring and homework support.  

The goal of this program is to improve student independence, confidence, and academic success.  

When do RISE sessions start?

Our 2021 academic year begins on September 13th and we aim to start our students then. Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we will not be able to start every student on September 13th, but placements will continue throughout the semester. Sessions are generally 50 minutes long and are offered Monday to Friday between 9:00 am and 7:00 pm and Saturdays between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Most students attend 2 sessions a week. 

Where are RISE sessions held? 

RISE one-to-one instruction is offered in-person at our East Vancouver Learning Centre and our North Vancouver location 

Not able to make it to one of our Learning Centres? No problem! 

Our RISE at Home program offers the same quality one-to-one instruction we offer in-person and delivers it virtually to your home via our dynamic, interactive online platform. Learn more about RISE at Home and how to get support no matter where you’re located in BC. Parents and guardians, please apply for one-to-one support through our online application form and select “RISE at Home BC” under program location.  

How much does it cost?

We operate on a sliding scale fee model to ensure our services are accessible to all families. We can discuss detailed fees and bursary support options during your intake interview. If your net household income (the amount you receive after taxes and deductions) is below $90,000 you are eligible for bursary support, so please indicate this where relevant in your application.  

How does the application process work?

Once you have filled out the application form, you will be added to our scheduling and invoicing platform TutorCruncher to begin our intake process (watch for a welcome email from TutorCruncher). We will reach out via the contact information you provide us to set up a time for an Intake and Assessment appointment. At this appointment, the LDS team will get to know you and your child better, gather information to understand your child’s learning needs and begin the process of matching them with an instructor. 

We look forward to reviewing your application!
