Mike is an aspiring teacher completing his second year of his Master of Teaching program at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. Mike completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto, obtaining a Bachelors in Kinesiology. During his post-secondary career, he worked at a summer camp (Camp UofT) for 6 years, leading and planning activities for kids anywhere between the ages of 6-14. It was his experience at camp and his interactions with teachers growing up that ultimately made him decide to go into the field of education.
Mike believes learning should always be a fun and exciting experience. Too often in school, students can become bored of the same teaching style and material which may decrease their motivation to learn. Mike understands that everyone learns differently, so he makes sure he puts in the time and effort so that every student can learn to the best of their ability. There is nothing more fulfilling for Mike than when a student understands a concept because it will be something they carry for the rest of their lives.
Mike loves being physically active and playing sports. You can often find him playing or watching basketball, hockey, or rugby. He also enjoys listening to music and singing.

Marie is an experienced tutor specialized in teaching sciences and maths (French and English). She recently graduated from McGill University in Microbiology and Immunology and is now pursuing her graduate studies at UofT in Neuroscience. Currently, she is doing research in Parkinson’s disease. Growing up in Montreal, Marie scored 100% on her governmental math and science exams, and thus, she is very familiar with the content and the format of the evaluations. As such, all of her students have graduated with 90% + grades in these courses. Marie also has experience working with students with learning disabilities. She loves working with each student to create an organized study plan to keep them on track and feeling confident. Aside from her academic success, Marie also speaks multiple languages including English, French, Spanish and Japanese. Her hobbies include running, yoga, fashion and cars.

Rupesh has 10 years of experience in tutoring. He has assisted students from various curriculums all across the globe. His extensive knowledge of the subject matter and distinctive teaching style makes him stand out from others. He is passionate about teaching, and his hard work & dedication always result in his students’ success.
He follows the technique called “ALBERRT” to teach his students.
A = AMICABLE. (It indicates that he deals with the students in a friendly manner, allowing him to build a friendly relationship with the students and better understand their needs.)
L= LAYMAN’S (He believes that explaining things in layman’s terms makes them easier to understand.)
B= BASICS (Focusing on the fundamentals and strengthening them helps students tackle advanced and difficult-level problems.)
R= REPETITION (He usually happens to repeat the concepts in different ways until he makes sure that the student has fully understood them.)
R= RATIFICATION ( It means he always asks for confirmation whether the student has understood the concepts properly or not then only he moves ahead.)
T= TEST ( He always conducts tests, including surprise tests.) So that he can determine whether the student is progressing in his studies. It also aids in revision.)
Akshata is a passionate tutor and a dedicated learner of the above academic disciplines. Akshata is presently a university student in pursuit of an engineering degree at the University of British Columbia. Akshata has taught English, Math, General Sciences, and other subjects to students from first to university level for the last 2 years. Furthermore, she helps student find their academic goals through rigorous practice and skill-enhancing word problems. Akshata has worked for a non-profit organization in India called HelpAge India in the field of helping disadvantaged senior citizens with their involvement in the community through working with neighboring schools and the growth of digital awareness and education for senior citizens that would love to be closer to their friends and family.
Akshata would want to teach students that making small mistakes in solving word problems is a big component of the learning process and teach them that there is better development from students making the problems themselves and pushing them to the limits to find the best opportunity for them to not only learn from their mistake however possibly teach others in perseverance and find the right solution.
Akshata was a competitive swimmer in upper-year high school. Nowadays, she loves to swim, play badminton, table tennis, and other sports in her free time, hone her skills through new endeavors, and approach new environments. “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think” is what she stands by.
Angelina studied mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Due to her strong performance there, she was hired by the math department to help tutor and mentor students in Calculus II. Through this opportunity, she fell in love with tutoring specifically and being able to help students 1 on 1. From there, she began tutoring independently with even more success. Angelina has helped students get into U of T, Waterloo, UBC, and more. Students, with her help, have moved up whole letter grades and improved significantly on standardized testing. Aside from tutoring, Angelina is also working on research and plans to obtain a master’s degree in educational psychology or cognitive science.
Angelina grew up moving around between different countries and experiencing different school systems. For high school, she attended an international school in Thailand where she obtained an IB Diploma. She always loved math and science but one of the best parts of high school and university was always being able to share that with others. Now, working as a tutor, it is incredible to not only continue sharing that but to see the students’ she always believed in achieving their goals.
