Meet Cathy Thompson – the founder and owner of Beyond The Classroom. Watch this interview and learn why you and your knowledge is your most precious commodity – and how your money story influences your business.
Cathy Thompson is the founder and owner of Beyond the Classroom Ltd. She began tutoring over 20 years ago, doing one-on-one sessions with students in their homes and noticed huge improvements in the students’ grades and confidence. Over time, more and more tutors have sought out positions at Beyond the Classroom Ltd. because of the philosophy of the company and because they believe that one-on-one tutoring is the most effective way to increase grades and confidence.
Cathy has a degree in Psychology and Sociology from McMaster University along with a post-graduate degree in Continuing and Adult Education from the University of Saskatchewan. She also has diplomas in Addictions Studies from McMaster University and Accounting from Mohawk College. She is also a mom to two small children, both in elementary school.
I can definitely relate to parents when they tell me it’s a challenge to do homework with their own children! says Cathy. It’s my hope that through the one-on-one support students will gain the confidence they need to be resilient when approaching any academic challenge.
Beyond the Classroom Ltd. has been helping students since 1998 in Halton Ontario. We employ over 60 passionate and experienced tutors, many of whom have worked with us for years.
