UTM Saturday Morning Tutoring Program

What is Saturday Program Mississauga?

Saturday Program Mississauga (SPM) is a tutoring and mentorship program that serves local high school students who have the potential to achieve more academically. The majority of mentees are grade 9 and 10 students who want help with math, science, or English. Mentors are UTM students from various programs of study, including medicine, the concurrent teacher education program, and other undergraduate and graduate programs. Over the past two years, SPM has been successful in boosting the marks of our mentees, some by as much as 30%.

 

What does the program entail?

Sessions are held Saturday mornings for 10 Saturdays between January and April at the Terrence Donnelly Health Sciences Complex at the University of Toronto Mississauga. In addition to tutoring, students and mentors can also participate in fun and interactive workshops.

A typical schedule for a Saturday morning:

9:40 – 9:45 Arrival & sign-in
9:45 – 11:30 Tutoring
11:30 – 12:30Workshop (or continued tutoring if preferred)
12:30Free lunch!

Well in Peel: The Attitude of Gratitude

What is Gratitude?

Gratitude is all about focusing on what's good in your life. It is paying attention to the things that we can sometimes take for granted, especially when we are feeling stressed. There are many different words that can describe feelings of gratitude, including feeling thankful, lucky, or fortunate. An attitude of gratitude involves actively choosing to acknowledge and appreciate the things you are thankful for in life. By making a focused effort to reflect on the positive parts of your day, the stressors you face can begin to feel a little less overwhelming.
