Michael Z.

Hello!
My name is Michael and I am a student currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Education program at Ontario Tech University. I have previously completed my honours Bachelor in Chemistry with a minor in biological science. I am passionate about teaching and learning new things, I love finding new creative ways of solving problems and incorporating technology into lessons. I have extensive experience in science courses and I am comfortable teaching students of any age. While I particularly enjoy chemistry and biology, I am also comfortable teaching physics, general science and intermediate math. I also really enjoy learning new technology and I have some experience with coding. In my free time I enjoy going hiking and being outdoors, playing video games, watching tv and movies, cooking and exercising.

TONI G.

Toni’s passion for education began after receiving her Bachelor of Science in Physics from the honors college at Arizona State University. She then served for two years as a Corps Member with Teach For America where she taught pre-AP physics at the high school level. Concurrently, Toni completed her teaching certification in secondary science through Johns Hopkins University. Toni is now completing a Masters in Climate Sciences at Columbia University while continuing to exercise her love for education through tutoring. Toni covers all math subjects from pre-algebra to calculus in addition to biology, environmental sciences, and physics.

 

ADEEL F.

Adeel earned his Masters in Education Technology from the University of British Columbia in 2015 and his Bachelor of Education from Nipissing University in 1999. In addition, he has a degree in Economics from Brock University and a diploma in Web/Multimedia Management and Webmaster from Georgian College. Adeel has Basic Qualifications to teach Junior and Intermediate Divisions, as well as qualifications in French, e-learning, and technology integration. Adeel strongly believes that each teaching opportunity should be unique to the students and that a strong relationship between teacher and student is vital to learning. He loves to teach coding to all grade levels, especially through the creation of computer games. Teaching French is also a passion of his, as he loves to see parent’s reactions when their children pick up a Parisian accent. Outside of the classroom, Adeel likes to spend his time playing with his two children and exploring the Muskoka region for great beaches and ice cream stands.

AMANDA V.

Amanda obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering from Carleton University. She has been tutoring students in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects for several years for students between Grades 6 and 12. She has also volunteered for Girls Learning Code, a summer camp program geared towards introducing coding to young children. She has also worked with teachers within the Toronto District School Board to help along with the coding curriculum. In her spare time, she likes to hike, train in kick boxing and gymnastics, read, and travel.

PAUL A.

Paul holds his M.Sc in Earth Science, Geodynamics Group, (GEOTOP-UQAM-McGill), and his B.Sc (Honour’s) in Earth Science and Oceanography from Dalhousie University. He graduated from Dawson College in Pure and Applied Science and attended Lower Canada College for high school.

Paul was a Teacher’s Assistant for the Introductory Geology course at Dalhousie’s Integrated Science Program, where he was involved in instructing bi-weekly field and laboratory exercises and conducting student evaluations. He led Geoman Adventure Tours including guided hiking, rock climbing, dune- crossing, rappelling and caving.

He received the Earth Science Graduate Scholarship from University of Quebec at Montreal, the First Class Combined Honour’s Degree in Earth Science and Oceanography from Dalhousie University and has acquired all academic requirements for attaining Canadian registration as a Professional Earth Scientist.

Paul has written and published extensively in all areas, which is why he also tutors writing, philosophy, and psychology. He tutors math, science, English and History at all levels. His academic and life experience make him the perfect tutor for anyone resistant to learning as well of for those who enjoy it.
