Ralph R.

Ralph is completing Bachelors in Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He currently holds an International Baccalaureate High School diploma.

Ralph tutored for his High School’s peer tutoring program, which he eventually led for two years. He has also worked as a mentor for a group students, building rapport with them by playing games and helping them deal with school life and academics.

His specialties include: Mathematics and Physics at all levels, Chemistry, Essay Writing, and French as a second language.

Ralph has practiced and is proud of his ability to adapt his teaching style to match how his students think about the foundational concepts. He has noticed that anxiety and low confidence in students often causes content to seem a lot more daunting than it really is. He recognizes that self-esteem and ease-of-mind make a significant difference in a students motivation and ability to learn, and likes to break down concepts, making them less “scary” by avoiding going off topic or sugarcoating content.

His experience, combined with his style of teaching helps students deal with school-related anxiety by building their confidence and showing them that they too can grasp seemingly difficult concepts.

VINI O.

Vini has a degree in Electrical Engineering. During university, he specialized in programming and logic. He worked with software consultancy for a while and now he is pursuing a degree in Game Development. For the past 18 months, Vini has been using his industry experience and his knowledge of math and programming to instruct kids and teenagers in robotics. During his work with robotics, he developed a great way to communicate with young minds and started tutoring not only so he could help kids boost their grades, but also so he can improve their creative thinking and get them to achieve their full potential. Always in a good mood and with good energy, Vini is constantly trying to improve in order to share his knowledge with his students in an efficient way. In his spare time, Vini likes to play video games and watch sports, which means he can have a fun ice-breaking conversation after every tutoring session with both student and parents about the latest video game released or the latest football game.

His good nature and depth of knowledge provide for a stimulating learning environment.

KOHAVA M.

Kohava is a student at the University of Toronto’s Engineering Science program. She attended the TOPS program at Bloor Collegiate Institute, graduating with the highest average in her class. She has worked at Centauri Summer Arts Camp, where she developed her love of teaching, instructing campers in theatre and creative writing. Kohava also loves math and science and wants to never stop learning. She believes that there is always an intuition behind concepts and that plugging numbers into a formula isn’t helping anyone learn anything. In her spare time, she loves playing board games (but not Monopoly), reading fantasy novels, and handing out with her two younger sisters.

TIFFANY A.

My name is Tiffany. I hold a Bachelors degree in Software Engineering. I have 3 years teaching experience at the College and University level in Computer Programming, Mathematics and Informatics. I enjoy opening up the world of Computer Science to new students, and bringing to life what is often considered a very dry area of study. I am very keen on teaching programming and computer science at the high school level. My main goal is to motivate students to want to learn and expand their horizons in this area, by showing them how useful it can be and how essential it is becoming in today’s world as a periphery to any field of study.
