Aryan is a recent graduate from McMaster University with a degree in Health Sciences. Currently, continuing with his interest, he is applying to medical school and hopes to stay in Toronto. Aryan’s passion for tutoring dates back to high school, where he started as a volunteer for Harbord Collegiate’s tutoring centre.

Upon moving to Hamilton to start university, Aryan spent 4 years volunteering for Frontier College, tutoring children age 6-11, mostly focusing on reading comprehension and writing skills. He also managed to tutor his peers in university-level courses he had experience with. In his 4th year, Aryan was hired to be a Teaching Assistant for the second year Health, Attitude, and Behaviour course within his program. As the Health Sciences program focuses on self-directed learning, Aryan gained professional experience in facilitating a teaching style that engages students directly with their own learning and success. From early on, Aryan has been able to develop a personalized model for each of his students. He has always been receptive to feedback and strived to formulate his teaching style in the best way that suits his students’ concerns. In his spare time, Aryan enjoys playing and watching soccer.

Reem is an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, completing her Honours Bachelors of Science. Her passion for tutoring flourish early when she began tutoring younger students in her high school during her senior years. When Reem began her undergrad she continued to develop her teaching skills as a Tutor with Tutor Doctor. Reem spent 2 years at Tutor Doctor supporting students in a variety of subjects, however her expertise is in Mathematics. Through her experience, Reem has recognized that a students’ lack of confidence in themselves can often be the main hurdle to achieving their full potential. That is why Reem believes in a “building blocks” approach to teaching. She first assures that a student is knowledgeable in the foundation content of a subject, and foundation skills such as problem solving and time management. Once the the foundation has been set she continues to support the student in building up their knowledge tower, which in turn builds up their confidence tower. Getting to observe as students have their “ah ha” moments is the main reason Reem loves teaching. After she completes her undergrad degree Reem hopes to travel the World teaching English. In her spare time, Reem enjoys baking cookies, reading poetry and exploring popular restaurants and cafes in Toronto.
