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.
Alex works with advanced-level students, teaching various topics in mathematics.
Presently she is completing a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics specializing in quantum information at the University of Waterloo. As well she holds an Hon.BSc (Mathematics Specialist) from the University of Toronto.
In her capacity as a graduate teaching assistant, she lectures, runs tutorials and office hours for undergraduate mathematics courses at the University of Waterloo. For those students planning to pursue a STEM education, she can provide academic and career guidance.
In her spare time, she works on experimental physics research projects at the Institute for Quantum Computing developing quantum sensing technologies.
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.
