The City Adult Learning Centre (CALC) is a secondary school offering an academic program for adult students working towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

In your role as a tutor, you can help CALC students build upon their existing skills as you assist them with one or more of the following subjects: senior math, biology, chemistry, accounting and English. There is a particularly high need for tutors with senior math and science knowledge.

This program is offered in collaboration with Woodsworth College.


This opportunity is open to all University of Toronto students.

How it works

Students who wish to participate in this opportunity must:

  1. Register for the CALC Project
  2. Meet with a CCP representative to find out more.
