ACADEMIC WELLNESS LEARNING CENTRE
AFA Tutoring Services
Would you like to have your child reach their full academic potential? If so, we invite you to learn more about the new tutoring services offered by Aqua Fun Academy. Our tutoring program helps your child improve their grades in the comfort of one location – before or after they are done swimming!
The tutors are committed to the ongoing development of students and ensure that they will be the best that they can be. We start with a personality and learning style assessment, track each student’s progress and provide a comfortable learning environment.
By actively engaging students in their coursework, they are able to independently complete their assignments, and tackle harder problems. Their participation in their own learning process, in turn, promotes the self-confidence needed to shine in the classroom.
Do it all in one go – no more time spent rushing from location to location!

Tutoring is delivered by our on-site academic experts led by head teacher Sofia Ferreyro Mazieres (OCT, B.A (Hons), B.Ed, M.A. PhD Candidate).
