Tax season – hope you know that academic tutoring is eligible for a tax credit!

Hello all,

  As I begin the process of preparing my own forms I am sending out receipts to all with a reminder regarding the Ontario Children’s Activity Tax Credit.  http://www.rev.gov.on.ca/en/credit/catc/index.html   this link will take you directly to the site for further information.  To the adults that I worked with last year, please see your accountant to determine if a series of classes taken will qualify. 

– Isn’t this Spring weather amazing?  I hope everyone is  studying but also getting outside!

March Break Ideas

http://cookit.e2bn.org/recipes/

When I find a great site I like to share it! Are you at home this week and thinking of activities to do with your children over March Break? In addition to the many great institutions that have hands-on activities for the week, cooking together at home is an opportunity to share creativity- boys and girls can enjoy selecting the food products, planning the meals and helping with the clean up.  Reading a recipe IS reading and incorporates math and science too!  Plus when you go to a website such as the one offered above, you may compare food choices from earlier times with popular foods today. 

Hope people are getting outside too and enjoying the mild Toronto weather. 

as always, best regards, from Ali the English Tutor-
