About Us

Welcome to Aiducation!

Although based in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Aiducation provides one-on-one French tutoring across Ontario. Our tutors provide virtual sessions and face-to-face sessions when possible.

Aiducation was created out of a need for French tutoring services and the lack of access with the help of the local French non-profit adult education centre, Novocentre.

We aspire to be the francophone reference in the field of tutoring, homework assistance and exam preparation in Ontario. We strive to provide the academic support and guidance your child needs for academic success.

At Aiducation, academic success is:

Mastering the essential school skills such as confidence, concentration and work ethic
Decreased stress from homework and anxiety about exams
Improving academic performance

Give your child the tools to succeed in their French studies with Aiducation.

Our Tutors

At Aiducation, we have an exceptional team of tutors that provide support and guidance to enhance your child’s academic success through an excellent tutoring experience. It is our practice to match your child with a tutor based on the student's individualized needs to ensure your child will succeed both individually and academically.

That's not all! At the parent's request, the tutor will contact your child's teacher to ensure a good teamwork approach.
