Family owned and operated since 1984, Teachers on Call provides personalized home and online tutoring services for students of all ages and grades in Toronto and across Ontario.
Who We Are
Our story began in 1984, founded on the belief that every child deserves the chance to maximize their learning experiences. While working as a special education teacher and department head in the Toronto District School Board, Rhona Sallay identified the need for additional support at home.
Outside the classroom, she experienced as a parent the challenges that come with tutoring your own children. With a strong desire to support students and their families, Teachers on Call was born.
Our family business has expanded and grown to include Rhona's daughter, Joanne Sallay, who is now President of Teachers on Call. It is quite symbolic as she was one of our first students.
Much has changed in the education world since our start. With a handful of tutors on our team, the requests we received were initially for high-school students who needed remedial help.
Over the last three decades we have seen academic needs evolve to include literacy and numeracy enrichment for elementary students, specialty support for Core, Extended and Immersion French, organization, time management and study skills.
Many of our alumni have reached out to us to share their academic and professional success stories. We learned that past students achieved marks they never thought possible, graduated from competitive post secondary programs, and entered meaningful careers and professions. It makes us proud to learn we played a role in our graduates achieving their goals in school and in life.
