Who We Are
Little Mountain Learning Academy started in 2006 on the UBC campus with passionate educators who are motivated by enabling their students to gain knowledge, skills, confidence and independence in a supportive and fun atmosphere. Our experienced staff aim to nurture motivation, which is critical in propelling our students towards their goals. With individualized attention and support, our students are emboldened and able to become the best they can be.
Our Junior Teachers are passionate educators and have special natural abilities to build great connections with young learners in the PreK-grade 7 range. These teachers are experts in early literacy and know-how to make learning fun.
Our Senior Teachers are motivated and excited in seeing youth grade 8 – grade 12 learn new challenging skills in Math, Sciences and English. These teachers are excited by how quickly students are able to gain new knowledge and skills and naturally seek to make this process as efficient and exciting as possible. They recognize these are key ingredients in nurturing motivation which is a critical force in propelling these students towards their goals. We know how to help youth reduce anxiety while preparing for university. Our Senior teachers support students to work efficiently by providing them important tools to understand complex instructions, how to study and how to achieve excellent grades while building confidence and academic integrity.
Why Our Junior Programs
PreK- grade 7 students thrive in a holistic educational environment, while developing an early passion toward lifelong learning and developing the following critical skills:
- Early literacy (reading and writing)
- Project-based collaboration
- Critical thinking
- Ability to Identify and nurture their unique learning strengths and character
Why Our Senior Programs
As knowledge transfer becomes increasingly important from grade 8, your child needs to develop a wide range of academic skills and subject matter expertise. No two children are the same and thus our Senior programs are personally paced, providing students a solid platform allowing for increased time and energy devoted to their areas of particular challenge. Senior Programs are offered online with blended (physical at school) learning opportunities.
- Access to tutors skilled in knowledge transfer with strong subject matter expertise
- Research and presentation skills development
- Confidence in accuracy
- Academic Integrity
- Ability to access robust course content in Math, Sciences, English and AP
- Tutors that can lead and motivate youth in their educational journey
We are here to support our community. We do this, primarily, through the education of children and youth. Our importance grows out of our success in helping children and families adapt to, and succeed within, the educational system in Canada in order to achieve their academic goals.
