Our subjects include English/ESL, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Additional subjects such as French are available upon request.

As well we provide assistance with test preparation (LPI, CELPIP, TOEFL, IELTS, SSAT, SAT), provincial exams, and university admissions/transfer applications. Our tutors are highly qualified, experienced and trained on the CEN Advantage Methodology. We tailor to all levels starting from elementary to early post secondary. Below are select testimonials by CEN students:

"Thank you so much for taking the fear out of PreCalculus and actually making it fun! I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and your dedication to my success. You explained the concepts in a way that made sense – you should write a math textbook! I look forward to working with you in the future."
  - Wendy, Student

“I was good at speaking and understanding English. My main challenge was the writing; I would think in Arabic and translating did not make it sound smooth [...] Sarah Dawn (from CEN) [who has tutored me for the last five years] has been a great tutor to help me with my English. We had a very good connection and she understood my challenges …”

• We have over 25 years of proven experience in the education sector servicing students and supporting them in achieving their academic goals.

• We are experts in the subject matter: We have developed our own curricula for English, Math and Physics that we license to international colleges.

• Building on our expertise we recruit tutors who not only have the credentials and experience but also a passion to execute our mission.

• We regularly assess the tutors and student’s progress to ensure objectives are met.

• We offer competitive pricing at a premium, secure and convenient location on Granville & 10th Ave. in Vancouver.

• We provide training to our tutors to ensure they are aligned with the CEN mission and Advantage methodology.

The CEN Advantage methodology ensures that the student’s needs and challenges are thoroughly assessed and addressed through a study plan that focuses on short and long term goals.

The short term goal may be achieving a high grade in a specific course; however, unless the student thoroughly understands and develops a motivation towards the subject matter, the investment will not be carried over on the long run.

Our tutors work one on one with the students to ensure that they build confidence and good study habits – as well as foundation skills that will serve their future academic and professional goals.

Our Process

Student Consultation and Assessment: We interview the student and parents (if applicable). Initial consultation can generally be conducted over the phone and followed by a meeting at our office. We provide a short assessment for the student in the subject(s) where help is required.

The purpose of the consultation is to understand immediate and long term goals, assess the level of the student’s knowledge in the subject matter, and note important timelines (e.g. Tests, Exams etc).

Tutor Assignment: We assign tutors to suit the student’s needs, schedule and other preferences.

Follow up: On a bi-weekly basis or as needed, students provide feedback to CEN to ensure tangible results and satisfaction with service. Students may request a new tutor if applicable.

No matter where you end up Math is a critical skillset - A common issue that we have faced with our students is that they are asked to memorize and end up not able to keep up with the material. Math is not and should not be about memorizing. So we stress understanding the concepts and encourage the students to ask Why?

If it makes sense to you then it will be easy to remember, build on and apply.

Whether you’re trying to perfect your reading and or writing or simply need help with your papers, CEN tutors can assist you.

Our experience in dealing with thousands of international students for the past 15 years indicates that the weakest skill set with these students seem to be reading and writing – Whether you are challenged in gaining university admission because of English requirements or simply looking for someone to guide you through daily conversations, we can provide the support that you need. We also provide assistance with various English proficiency tests including the LPI, CELPIP,TOEFL and IETLS.

Physics and Chemistry
It is not easy to find people that can teach these two subjects passionately – so we look hard! After all, physics and chemistry are all about being practical and finding solutions to today’s real life problems.

Test Preparation
In addition to various English proficiency tests, we offer support with Provincial exams (various subjects), SSAT, and SATs. Other test preparation and subjects are available upon request.
