    About Extra Ed

    Extra Ed is very professional and delivers a great product! They are engaging, knowledgeable, and the students love their sessions. They have been teaching Financial Literacy since before it was part of the Ontario Math Curriculum - they knew how important this was, and they deliver it well. Highly recommended!

    Rubiks Cube Private Class
    Ilana Segal (Parent)

    My 9 year old son recently participated in a 1:1 Zoom class teaching him how to solve the Rubik’s cube. He really loved the instructor and was successful at learning to solve the cube which gave him a huge amount of confidence. ExtraEd were very flexible and accommodating in developing this class to suit his needs. A few years prior, my son had participated in an extra curricular chess club offered at his school by ExtraEd. He had enjoyed that too. Definitely recommend this place. Review originally published on Google Reviews ... Read More

    Exciting and Affordable Educational Classes
    Merlene George (Parent)

    My son has taken online Coding and Chess classes with Extra Ed, and I cannot be more impressed! After being home and struggling to keep my son engaged, the classes provided the enrichment, routine, and fun that he needed. I love that these educational classes not only challenge my son with exciting projects and skills, but also help with developing his social skills with peers. What initially appealed to me was the daily class offerings at reasonable rates (I wanted something daily so that it could bring back a well-needed sense of routine). Beyond that, I have been impressed by the knowledge, skills, and patience of the Extra Ed team. I even gifted my cousin’s daughter (who lives abroad) a couple weeks of Coding classes so that my son and his cousin could share in classes together. They had a blast! I’m looking forward to enrolling my son in the other course offerings. Highly recommended! Review originally published on Google Reviews ... Read More

    Lena Ohanjanians (Parent)

    Extra-Ed is great! They taught both my kids chess in school during the school year in 2018-2019. Most recently my daughter took the financial literacy course and enjoyed it, learning to save and budget! Review originally published on Google Reviews ... Read More

    Dynamic and Engaging Financial Literacy Classes
    Samantha Moe (Parent)

    Engaging financial literacy class that my 13 and 11 year olds took over the summer. The instructor asked them practical and relevant questions about the cost of our day to day expenses (food, electricity, mortgage, etc) and encouraged the kids to dialogue with the family. The kids learned a lot! Mixed formats used during class including discussion, slides, games and instructor was great at engaging every kid. Highly recommend!

    Extra Ed Team is Professional, Fun and Make Learning Exciting
    Jennifer Harper (Parent)

    My children have taken financial literacy and chess with Extra Ed. After each class, they are happy and surprise me with something they learned. I was so impressed, I asked Extra Ed to work with my classroom on a financial literacy project. Yakos and his team are professional, fun and make learning exciting. I couldn’t recommend them more.

  • What's New

    Director's Message

    Yakos Spiliotopoulos, Founder and Director

    Welcome to Extra Ed!

    Extra Ed is a social enterprise with two main goals. First, we aim to deliver educational programs that teach essential life skills and that positively impact those who take them. Second, we are devoted to making a difference environmentally.

    At Extra Ed, when we talk about delivering an extraordinary education, we are talking about empowering people with the building blocks for life. Whether it’s introducing kids to financial literacy, new and different cultures, strategic thinking, or working with their hands, our programs are designed to nurture better brains for an ever-changing and demanding world. Our stellar programming has earned the respect of school boards across the country, including the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), the largest school board in Canada.

    Extra Ed’s signature environmental initiative is planting a tree with every registration we receive, or giving that tree directly to students and families to plant. This has resulted in thousands of trees in the ground, all native to the region.

    When talking about education, meaningful content and exciting delivery are key elements in effective learning, but where you learn is just as important as what you learn. This means going beyond real world application of skills to also nurture a healthy respect and appreciation for the natural world that inspires us.

    At Extra Ed, we want to keep our world a place where inspiration can continue to be drawn. We believe that intent-driven actions can and do make a meaningful difference.

    Sincerely,

    Yakos

     



    Stories

    • EXTRA ED IS FUN! – AN INTERVIEW WITH LUCAS AND NICOLAS

      Extra Ed: Hello, boys! Before we chat about Extra Ed programs, can you tell us how old are you?

      Lucas: I am 13 years old.

      Nicolas: I am 8.

      Extra Ed: Cool! What programs did you guys take?

      Lucas: I did Financial Literacy and Lego Robotics.

      Nicolas: I took Lego Robotics and Lego Building programs.

      Extra Ed: And what did you guys think about the programs?

      Lucas: I honestly liked both of them very much! The instructors were very fun to work with. And the content that we learned was pretty cool. I liked the way they guided Financial Literacy and Lego Robotics programs.

      Nicolas: I liked the programs very much. I met new people. I got to build really cool structures.

      Extra Ed: What else do you guys remember from the programs?

      Lucas: I liked both programs very much. I think I prefer Lego Robotics because I enjoy playing with Lego bricks and adding the robotics to it made the experience awesome. In Financial Literacy, we had our own characters that we developed for group work and made life choices for them. It was a fun way to look at more serious matters such as how we manage our money through life.

      Nicolas: They were fun! I had choices to build different things like amusement parks, cities, theme days such as Christmas, medieval times and lots more. In Lego Robotics we could build things that move back and forth and we could access it from a tablet. So, it was really cool!

      Extra Ed: That’s awesome! Thank you for the chat guys. Let me ask you a last question: I’ve heard you love playing video games. So, tell us about a cool game you played recently.

      Lucas: I am playing Batman Arkham Knight and I love it. Batman is one of my favourite characters and I love driving the Batmobile through Gotham City.

      Nicolas: Spider-Man Miles Morales. Miles is my favourite character. I just love him. I have finished the game and I am playing it all over again.
