Arrange a meeting / first lesson with Mike to study and discuss the tutoring process. These meetings often take place at the Toronto Reference Library at Yonge and Bloor, or in Mike’s neighbourhood, High Park. First meetings are offered at discounted rates.

Lesson Rates

Conversational English tutoring starts at $50 for 90 minutes (this is my base charge). Essay writing and grammar study starts at $80 for two hours. These rates are for locations in central Toronto or online.


Generally Mike prefers tutoring in downtown Toronto or High Park, however tutoring can take place anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area. Do you like in Mississauga, Scarborough or North York?
