StudySpot Hamilton & Burlington
Dr. Michael Bruder oversees the delivery of StudySpot’s Academic Coaching support to Hamilton and Burlington area students. Having joined the StudySpot team in 2015 as an educational consultant, he quickly gained an appreciation for the effectiveness of the program. Its ability to support students with Executive Function deficits in areas such as exam prep, organization, and overall study skills, motivated Dr. Bruder to bring StudySpot to Hamilton and Burlington.

Elementary and High School
Aristos is a proud licensee of StudySpot for Hamilton, Burlington, and Waterdown. StudySpot provides academic coaching for students in grades 7-12 with an emphasis on support for students with executive function deficits, such as those usually found with students who have a diagnosis of ADD or ADHD. Students learn such skills as organization and time-management, test prep, active reading, and note-taking.
High School and University
Administered by Dr. Bruder, and based on his years of experience teaching at the University level, we provide a tailored set of lessons designed to prepare a student for the advance to University. Content is individualized to the school and program of each student so that s/he is familiar with the academic policies of the school but also the style and formatting standards of his/her discipline.
Executive Skill Support
Ongoing support for University Students who would benefit from organization techniques, essay writing, exam preparation and planning, note-taking, and reading comprehension skills.
Psycho-Educational Assessment Review and Planning
Many families are unsure of how to make the best use of the results from a Psycho-Educational Assessment. The education experts at Aristos can work with your family to best understand what the results mean, and most importantly what strategies and skills the student needs to succeed in light of the assessment’s recommendations.
Student and Family Advocacy
We understand that the education system can sometimes be difficult to navigate for families with concerns. We are happy to accompany families to school meetings such as parent-teacher interviews and IRPC review meetings, to advocate for family concerns and ensure that any IEPs are being implemented to the family’s satisfaction.
Aristos focuses on academic supports, however we have a strong network of psychologists and counsellors to whom we can refer.
