Whether the need is to understand more of a certain concept, or to be challenged, there is always a need. A need that will be met by “bridging-the-gap.” As Educators, we understand that at times during a student’s academic journey, gaps may occur, and help may be required.  “Bridging-the-Gap” Tutoring Program was designed to help meet many needs, mainly academic. The main purpose of the program is to help students reach their academic goals and confidently make decisions to further excel their learning within the safe environment of MSK. An environment that is familiar, trusting and safe!



Within a Casa classroom at MSK, students are allowed to work at their own pace, explore freely on their own initiative and choose their own agenda for the day, with the guidance of their Directress (teacher). Learning is like an open buffet where all the Montessori materials are exposed in a neat and orderly fashion around the classroom in each of the five curriculum areas— practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language and culture (see below). This exposure allows for children to gain independence, foster self-direction and develop self-discipline while catering to their specific learning needs.

Perhaps it is homework help, or maybe it is lack of knowledge where you cannot help your child succeed. Tutoring can help in many ways. It can strengthen subject comprehension, boost confidence, and build important learning skills. Tutoring gives students individualized attention. It helps students that require more of a challenge or a bit more help to better learn certain concepts.

Regular meetings will occur to discuss the progress goals and next steps. Our program will bridge the gap for all students entering their next grade level.

It is MSK’s Mission to “Bridge-the Gap” for each student. We understand that there are many families looking to supplement their child’s academic journey by providing more. The extra support will help each child reach their fullest potential by bridging the gap. Our tutoring program has been designed to help bridge educational gaps. The program will help each student learn to the best of their abilities in a safe, scenic and nurturing environment with the help of trained staff and alumni.


The wait is over… MSK is announcing its first-ever school tutoring. The MSK administration and tutoring team are happy to announce that we will be offering in-person and virtual tutoring starting this September for our age 4 to 14 students. As our new school year has officially begun and we are now transitioning back to in-person learning, growing and developing new ways of learning is vital. Our entire tutoring team’s goal is to make sure our MSK students feel confident in their ability to receive extra help where needed.

Our tutoring teams consist of alumni MSK alumni students and our lead tutor Ms. Puntillo, one of our Casa teachers. Ms. Puntillo is happy to be a part of this growing team and journey that MSK provides for all students. Ms. Puntillo strongly believes in extra homework help, new strategies, and general assistance with subject areas. The goal at MSK is to have our students understand that no matter what challenges they may be facing, what subject area may need attention, with the guided support and help from our MSK tutoring team, they will accomplish their goal!

Remember, no matter how hard something may be, anything is possible to achieve.

Here at MSK tutoring, we know that areas of learning may be challenging but with perseverance and guided one on one support, your child has the power to succeed in all areas.

We look forward to having so many faces join our MSK Tutoring!

Some of my hobbies would be knitting, crochet, art, sports, music and dance and spending time with my three children and our pets.

Alyssa Pejkovic, MSK Alumni

My name is Alyssa, and I was an MSK student for nine years, graduating in 2012 from grade six. I am currently going into my fourth year in the Life Science Sensory Motor Systems program at McMaster University, where I am also pursuing a minor in Psychology. My favourite subjects are biology, kinesiology, neuroscience, and psychology. After I complete my undergraduate studies, I hope to pursue medical school and eventually, a career in the medical or health care field. This summer I will be writing the MCAT, one of the greatest goals I have set for myself, as this is the most difficult test I will have ever taken! This year, I became interested in candle making as a hobby and recently started my own small business for decorative candles, where a portion of proceeds will go towards Ronald McDonald House Charities. I have already learned so much from starting my own business and am eager to continue to learn more! Some of my other interests include hiking, traveling, shopping, horseback riding, and finding new healthy recipes. I am excited to begin tutoring in the Bridge-the-Gap program at MSK, as I look back so fondly at my amazing memories and experience here. I enjoy working with children and cannot wait to have the opportunity to work in such a supportive, uplifting, and inclusive environment as a part of the MSK community once again.




Kindest Regards,
