Great interview with our CEO, Angel Kuang for BeTheBoss.ca
BeTheBoss.ca: Tell us about the Inspiration Learning Concept.
Angel Kuang: Our vision at Inspiration Learning is founded upon a simple premise: every child is unique. This means education is not “one size fits all.” Nor should it be. In shaping education to the individual, it becomes a journey in which students begin to discover themselves and their own unique identities. Our belief is that a child should never have to be one person at home and someone entirely different at school.
At our schools, we implement a unique teaching methodology in combining learning practices from the eastern and western sides of the world. We believe that understanding the “big idea” is just as important as constant reviewing and testing for greatest opportunity of success for each student.
We had a fantastic brainstorming meeting with Punch Canada/Fishman Canada this morning. Thanks a lot to Lisa Raffaele (VP), Jeff Lake (Managing Partner) and Laura D’Angelo (Account Manager). Part of our plan is to reach out to smaller towns and communities in Ontario and Vancouver to help build up tutoring / private school facilities.
We are really excited to be teaming up with such an awesome PR firm!
Put away the beach towels and get ready for the back to school frenzy! Now that the summer break is over it is time for students and parents to acclimatize themselves to another year of learning. Here are a few tips for getting started on the right-foot.
Contact your children’s teachers. Give them a quick call or a friendly email introduction and let them know that you would love to hear from them during the year.
Get your back to school schedule down in writing. Whether it is a choice of school lunches, timetables for classes or options for quick and easy dinner on busy school nights. Having it down on paper can help you stay organized during hectic school nights.
Keep an eye on the important things that make for a good school day. Backpacks should not be too heavy, make sure your child is not carry around everything including the kitchen sink. A backpack that is too heavy can cause strain and pain. Snacks, we all love to indulge sometimes but make sure you have lots of healthy snacks available for your children’s lunch bag. Sleep! Make sure everyone is getting to bed early because nothing spells disaster at school like a tired student.
Good luck on another school year and stay inspired!

Summer tutoring is a great way to get a head start on the next school year. Walking into school on the first day with confidence is priceless and a great start to the road of success! We made a short video about this.
With September approaching, it’s time for both parents and children to start preparing for the upcoming school year. Here are our tips for you and your child to start the school year off right!
1. Set goals and expectations.
You have them as a parent, and your child should have them as a student. A discussion with your child about what’s important to them will help both of you determine how to approach the new school year. It will also help to identify areas of potential problems and work on preventing or mitigating them before they become major issues. Was there a subject your child struggled with last year, and how can you help him or her with it this year? Perhaps the two of you can decide to set up a study routine, weekly homework check-ins, or some tutoring classes.
2. Focus on the long-term.
Getting a good education is about more than just academics. What are your child’s aspirations for him- or herself? Set up a good foundation for a well-rounded educational journey by looking into extracurricular activities, volunteer work, and other opportunities. This will allow your child to explore his or her interests, get involved in the community and help them later on when they are looking into post-secondary programs. Inspiration’s educational planning packages can help you out if you don’t know where to start.
3. Establish a good routine.
A solid routine with certain tasks done at particular times of the day will help your child stay organized with confidence. Begin each day on the right foot by providing them a nutritious breakfast and ample time to get ready for school. A good evening routine that includes set times for homework will help them stay on top of school work. Children also need the right amount of sleep in order to be alert and ready to learn all day, so an appropriate curfew will ensure they are well-rested.
4. Meet the teachers.
Establishing a good relationship with your child’s teachers will help you stay informed about your child’s progress. Teachers often have email addresses which can be used to check in with them throughout the school year, and identify issues long before report cards come out. Is English not your first language? No problem! Inspiration offers translation and interpretation services for parents who need a bit of help communicating with teachers. Contact us to find out more.
5. Get a calendar.
Write down all the important dates, deadlines, and events throughout the school year so that you can be well prepared ahead of time for things like parent-teacher interviews, talent shows, university fairs, application deadlines, and more. Put your calendar somewhere where both you and your child can easily see it everyday. This way, your child will be encouraged to not only stay organized but to manage his or her own responsibilities and develop more independence.
