Annual Scavenger Hunt

“BC has the worst poverty rate of any province in Canada. As household income is one of the strongest predictors of whether parents hire tutors, the cost of tutoring prevents many parents from hiring tutors. We know that tutoring can help students overcome the anxiety often encountered in classrooms where rewards are based on performance. Similar gains are also made by at-risk students, who show improvements in behaviour and self-control.” Amber Scotchburn, Owner/Founder of TUTORING…WITH A TWIST.

Our solution to these facts is our Give & Get Program! It is a charitable program that provides financial assistance to those in our community who wish to participate in Tutoring...With A Twist services. We are raising awareness of the Give & Get program via a SCAVENGER HUNT in WOODGROVE MALL!
