Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Make a Difference: Become a Tutor/Mentor in a School

Tutors and mentors can make a significant contribution to the personal growth and academic development of our students. 

A single positive relationship with a trusted tutor or mentor can greatly impact a student’s self-esteem, learning skills, and confidence. It can also help establish a sense of purpose and hope for the future. Consider making that kind of difference in the lives of our students.  

All tutor activities for our schools are performed under the direct supervision of a teacher.  

These activities may include the following:
  • Working with groups of students requiring remediation 
  • Working with groups of students requiring enrichment 
  • Aiding teachers in the preparation of lesson plans
  • Assisting with technology in the library 
  • Helping students to prepare for competitions, such as Mathematics Leagues or the Science Olympics
  • Assisting students to prepare multi-media presentations
  • Organizing a mathematics, science or technology fair 
  • Familiarizing teachers and students with educational software
Community members who wish to volunteer must, like all TDSB employees, complete a Police Reference Check (which will include a vulnerable sector screening) and be cleared before they can tutor/mentor in any TDSB location or participate in activities with our students.
Our Mission
To enable all students to reach high levels of achievement and well-being
and to acquire the knowledge, skills
and values they need to become responsible, contributing members of
a democratic and sustainable society.
