For her, tutoring is all about listening and responding to her students’ unique needs. Selma recently moved to Ontario, and she is looking forward to her next adventure in a new province!

Alex is an Ontario Certified Teacher – or soon to be, pending some more paperwork – who’s raring to go out and continue his teaching career after years spent abroad, in the private sector, and as a soccer and public speaking coach. An unabashed geek at heart and lover of all things anime, online, and creative, he is a firm believer in fostering a deeper, lifelong enthusiasm for learning by being, well… enthusiastic! Kids (and all people) don’t learn well if learning is a chore, and it is very possible to be academically rigorous while maintaining a sense of joy and wonder. He is particularly passionate about history, which he completed his undergraduate degree in. Yes, it CAN be fun and is a great medium through which to practice writing and critical thinking skills.
In general, Alex is a big fan of both of those things (he’s one of those people who holds opinions on the Oxford comma – beware) and, when he’s not busy camping, game designing, or mumbling calculations as he points an oversized telescope at the night sky, he teaches them both on a part-time and volunteer basis. Learning is something that he views as a panacea and a sort of vaccine against many of the hurdles and challenges that modern society presents us with. His goal is to turn it into a lifelong passion and, to this end, he has worked with everything from preschoolers to adult professionals over a diverse array of subjects and backgrounds. He is something of a polymath. Just… don’t get him started on Shakespeare. Again, he has opinions. You’ve been warned.
Alex Graduated summa cum laude from York University in 2022 with a Bachelor of Education to follow up on his 2015 Bachelor of Arts in History. He completed his teaching internship in the TDSB (Toronto District School Board), where he taught in a Grade 3 classroom after first having interned in Health & Physical Education. While in school, he remained active as an educator, coaching debate and public speaking classes, and teaching English, History, Science, and Research classes. He has a deep background in teaching ELL (English Language Learners), having previously done so abroad, in China, as well as right here in Canada. Just… remember your commas.
