Physics and Math tutoring by definition don't seem to fit an Arts credit program.
When I was at school some while ago we called these subjects Sciences!
Certainly not eligible for Education amount either. Does this mean you could obtain credit for some of the cost of a Kumon program?

What programs are eligible?
• Those that help develop creativity, artistic ability or focus on culture; for example, drum lessons, Mandarin classes, tap dancing lessons;
• Those that focus on nature like nature classes and camps;
• Those centered on intellectual skills such as computer camps, chess classes, sewing, or public speaking courses;
• Those that involve structured and supervised interaction between children like Brownies and Girl Guides;
• Those that focus on academic subjects such as math tutoring, science camps, or creative writing classes.
Are there other requirements?
Yes. The program must be ongoing, that is either a minimum of once a week for at least 8 weeks or 5 consecutive days, supervised and intended for children. The program cannot be part of a school curriculum.

Who determines if a program is eligible for the Children's Arts Tax Credit?
The organization offering the program will determine that. They will also give you a receipt that is acceptable to the CRA.
