In 1992, our father started Success Tutorial School in a small unit on the second floor of a strip mall. I remember there was only one table, a few chairs, a small desk and a telephone. Our father would be teaching 2 to 3 students of various grades at the same time.
Today, we are very proud that we have been in business for over 25 years! Growing from 1 teacher, a few students to having three campuses with over 60 teachers and administrative staff and more than 1300 students.
Changes in demographics, technology and the perception of “it is ok to buy Ontario secondary school credits without studying” have often put us to test throughout the years. Our father’s belief in active teaching and small group learning, his belief in “not afraid to challenge students with true knowledge and harder questions” and his philosophy of “learn ahead” have guided us through many challenges.
We started building relationships that we still have 25 years later. We have former students who are now our teachers; we have former teachers and students who bring their children to join our classes. A newly-wed couple thanked our school in their wedding speech as our Grade 11 afterschool Math program led them to each other. A teacher’s former STS student is now teaching his children at our school. These are only some of the many interesting stories that we have to share.
“Sing gung” (our Chinese name), “Success” and “STS” are some of the nicknames that people call us. Our name evolves as we continue to grow with our community.
We appreciate and are grateful to all our loyal customers who have been bringing their friends, neighbors, relatives, children and grandchildren to join our classes. We thank you and hope you will continue to let us take care of you and your children’s education!
