How do I get started?
Flow in Sports offers online and personal tutoring in three easy steps.
2) Pay. (Look for the right package for you).
3) Reserve a tutoring session via email or call toll free 1.877.778 (FLOW) 3569 or call local 514.337.6252 to reserve (usually two days in advance). Often what works best is to set schedule i.e. Every Saturday at 1pm or Tuesday's and Thursday's at 4pm. Some parents prefer to have tutoring sessions three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Saturday). This depends entirely up to how much improvement is needed by a student (and how "at risk" a student is. It may be safer to get more tutoring sessions at the beginning and once the student's marks improve and the right work habits are instilled then the tutoring sessions become less frequent and may eventually stop. Often tutoring sessions can take place once in a while just to get a "tune up" and reinforce good study habits and to better prepare for tests or exams.
