Private Tutoring

Students can greatly benefit from private tutoring, whether it is for high school subjects, university preview, or college courses, to improve their grades and ensure that students’ transcripts accurately reflect their ability.

At Rasul Learning Group, we understand the importance of academic achievement, from the elementary school level through to the university level. We work to help students improve their grades to better reflect their ability, as well as to help students gain a better understanding of the subject material, which is crucial in programs and classes that are cumulative from past courses.

We provide private one-on-one tutoring to students in subject areas such as Math, Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Biology, English, History, and other Social Sciences. We have an experienced team of subject specialists who will create personalized teaching plans and techniques for each student to best suit their learning style.

Our tutors work with each student in private sessions to get the most out of each session, as it can be much more effective than tutoring in a classroom style setting.


Home Schooling

Homeschooling is a good option for students who take part in time-demanding athletic programs, or for those in similar situations. Homeschooled students can benefit from the BC Distance Education Curriculum, the Rasul Consulting Curriculum, or AP Course Instruction.

BC Distance Education Curriculum

We offer personalized course instruction for all subject areas for grades 1-12, including Provincial Exam preparation for Grade 12 Provincial Exams. This is greatly beneficial because it is the same curriculum that a student would be learning in a traditional elementary or high school environment, and will allow homeschooled students to enter their first year of university with the same knowledge level that a traditionally schooled student would have. We teach BC Ministry of Education approved courses and through our experience, we can advise students on which courses are best suited for them, thus creating a very personalized teaching plan.


Rasul Consulting Curriculum

Rasul Learning Group offers a unique high school curriculum created by Founder and Director, Zahra Rasul, whose experience in curriculum writing stems from her time as a professor at the University of Toronto.

This curriculum follows the course material prescribed by the BC Ministry of Education, but uses innovative interdisciplinary ideas and pedagogies to engage students in subject areas. Instead of learning science, math, history, languages and literature as distinct subjects, the Rasul Consulting interdisciplinary curriculum presents the ideas to students in ways that encourage integrative thought and critical thinking skills. By thinking outside the box, students are better prepared to meet the challenges of rigorous university curriculum as well as develop the necessary skills to think through problems that face their generation. This curriculum is perfect for home-schooled students, as well as those who seek to spark their creative thinking abilities.


AP Course Instruction

Many high schools in Canada do not offer Advanced Placement courses as part of their academic curriculum, or offer only a select few courses. Our educators offer AP course instruction in a number of subject areas, preparing Grade 11 and Grade 12 students to write AP exams offered annually in May. These exams are particularly important for students who wish to apply to U.S. colleges.

Our courses of instruction include: English Language, English Literature, French Language and Culture, European History, World History, Comparative Government and Politics, Human Geography.


University Level Distance Education Instruction

Technology has opened up the educational frontiers, offering students innovative and flexible ways to structure their academic paths. A study conducted by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Education Forum Project cites that in Canada, over 90% of post-secondary educational institutions now offer online and distance learning courses, which comprises the fastest growing method of educational content delivery. 

Online learning has become an appealing option for people who have full-time jobs, or students who choose to take a mix of lecture-based and distance education courses. However, many students are unable to access the tangible support they need to facilitate the best academic experience in this format.

At Rasul Learning Group, we provide academic support and assistance to students who take classes by distance at universities in Canada and the United States in Social Sciences, Humanities, Kinesiology and Law. Whether you are a mature student doing a part time degree, or a full time undergraduate or graduate student taking some classes online, we can offer the individual support that you need to take full advantage of your education.
