The school I work with has contracted tutors through Tutoring...With A Twist and they always exceed our expectations. Tutors are positive, adaptable, and willing to give a little bit extra. ASTC provides a monthly summary of services which is extremely helpful for programming and providing feedback to families and myself.
Peace of mind... that is what Tutoring with a Twist has done for our family. We adults in our house are not the best at math, but wanted to give our 10 year old better tools that we had when it came to numbers. We are blessed to have found Amber and Erin. Our daughter is much more confident in her math skills, actually finishing her school work ahead of time and is awfully proud of herself. That sense of pride is what we wanted her to feel. It makes us feel fantastic too! Thanks Tutoring with a Twist.
Amber taught me so much about myself and showed me my strengths and built my confidence. Amber was a breath of fresh air for many students because she had a unique and effective way of getting students interested in learning. Amber’s encouragement made us all feel and believe that we could do anything we put our minds to.
Amber showed so much dedication and respect for all of her students. She went the extra mile to help each of us individually and genuinely cared about our future and wanted each and every one of us to be a success.
I thank Amber for helping me discover my path in life and for having such a positive impact on my life and the life of many others I know. No student was ever too much for Amber to handle, in fact she loved the challenge of helping the most difficult students become the best they could be. Amber is a caring, professional, energetic and genuine teacher.
Amber is the definition of what an ideal "teacher" and "leader" should be; strong, intelligent, professional, helpful and determined.
Thank you Amber for everything you have done for me, I greatly appreciate the role you had in helping me become the person I am today.
Former high school student
Amber's knowledge of group dynamics and games builds a strong sense of belonging where everyone feels safe!
My colleague, Amber Scotchburn, consistently set a high bar for our students in the ACE program. She believed that the students were capable of more then they knew and they came to realize this to be true!
Amber ensured that all students became knowledgeable about their learning style and provided opportunities for the classroom instruction to be differentiated in order to showcase more accurately the knowledge, skills of her students.
Involved, Inspired and Encouraged- this happens when Amber leads a group!
Jean, Co-Founder Alternative Cooperative Experiential (ACE) Program
Amber’s expertise in career education was a definite asset to St. Joseph Secondary School. The students benefited from her enthusiasm and dedication to facilitating their development in self-discovery, career opportunities and future educational requirements. Amber brought a deep sense of caring to each and every student in her class and provided them with every opportunity to be successful, not only in her course but in life.
Amber was eventually selected to head up an alternative education program for expelled students within the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board that required someone with her expertise and initiative. She was extremely effective and was instrumental in the Alternative Education Program being successfully established and a huge success.
Marg, Guidance Department Head
This was one of the teachers whom I can truly say I will never forget because of her constant brightness, and positive attitude towards students. Her faith in us and charisma was what really enticed students to come to class everyday because we were in a pleasant environment and were being educated in a way where learning was fun. A teacher who cares for their students' future and actively strives to bring out the best potential in them would be just a minute example of the type of teacher Amber Scotchburn was to me.
I always felt excited to come to class, knowing that the skills I would learn would prove to be beneficial to me in the future, and help aid me in further research towards my career goals and endeavors.

I have had the experience of working under Ms. Scotchburn and I would like to share my experience. Ms. Scotchburn delivers a program that is individualized and avoids any type of boredom due to her creative format of the way she engages group members in the activities run. Her teaching style I found to be supportive, reflective and really challenged the participants to improve themselves. With this positive energy that she lathered the individual group members with she created a sense of success that all members felt that they could achieve. Ms. Scotchburn was a fantastic mentor and if you ever have the opportunity to engage in a focused group or a workshop with her I strongly encourage you to do so.
