Ruth Rumack’s Learning Space (RRLS) provides personalized educational support for Pre K-12 students in Toronto, including those with learning differences.
Originally established as a tutoring company in 1996, RRLS has since evolved into something much more unique. RRLS provides individualized academic and special education support that goes well beyond the role of a standard tutor. RRLS employs certified teachers with years of experience working with students with learning differences.

RRLS’s highly-skilled teachers also provide homework help in all subject areas as well as preparation courses for writing the SSAT, SAT, and ACT.
For 20 years, RRLS’s approach to teaching through sensory and motor activities, combined with tailoring to specific learning styles, has yielded excellent measurable results.
