Tutor Doctor Northern Canada has been providing tutoring services to Northern students since January 2020. We currently offer in-person tutoring to students in Yellowknife, NT and online tutoring to students throughout the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon.
When my step-daughter’s tutor left town, my husband and I found it extremely difficult to find a replacement tutor for her. There wasn’t a simple, secure way to find a reliable tutor in town and trying to support her educational needs entirely on our own was putting a strain on our relationship with her. I figured that we couldn’t be the only parents in the North struggling to help their child in school or struggling to find a tutor. I wanted to offer a streamlined approach to accessing tutoring for parents in similar situations to myself – that’s when my husband and I started looking into Tutor Doctor.
Quinlyn Connell is the owner/operator of Tutor Doctor Northern Canada. She has been teaching in various capacities as a tutor, gymnastics coach and dance instructor for over half of her life. Although she has no formal training as a businesswoman, she is 100% driven by her children and her passion for helping others reach their full potential while simultaneously building their confidence. As a born and raised northerner, Quinlyn understands that students throughout Canada’s Territories face barriers to education that students elsewhere in Canada do not have to deal with. Her goal is to help students to create opportunities for themselves by guiding them to reach their full potential.
