I graduated from the University of Calgary as a Master of Science. I have over 4 years of tutoring experience at the university as a graduate level teaching assistant and as a private math tutor.
I am a proficient tutor for Grade 6-11 Mathematics, Grade 6-8 General Sciences, Grade 11-12 Physics, and Grade 6-12 Computer Science.
I strive to make learning interesting by igniting the curiosity all of us are born with. I am passionate about the subjects I teach and I aim to inspire my students to explore them with the same drive. I understand that all humans are unique, and thus have varying learning preferences. This is why, I keep my tutorials adaptive, and curate them according to the learning style of my students. In my tutorials, I value student engagement, communication, discussion, clear comprehension of concepts, problem solving, creativity, and critical thinking.
I look forward to accompanying and guiding you on your journey of learning.
Abdulahi has been quite the globetrotter from an early age. He was born in Mogadishu, Somalia; raised in Chicago, America; socialized and educated in Toronto-Windsor, Canada, which he now refers to as home. To date, Abdulahi has lived in five different countries (America, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates) and traveled to 55 others.
Abdulahi received an Honours Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Science and Environmental Science, and also a Bachelor of Education from the University of Windsor. Additionally, he completed many international language certificates. Prior to making the transition back to Canada, Abdulahi taught internationally at prestigious private schools for nearly a decade. These schools followed the Ontario, Alberta and IB curricula and framework.
As an extremely passionate educator, Abdulahi’s teaching experiences have helped him refine a personal teaching philosophy and pedagogy in education that combines the importance of inclusion within the classroom, ongoing feedback, respect, and creating meaningful student-centered lessons. Abdulahi’s defining characteristic as an educator revolves around the joy, pleasure and passion that he receives from teaching beyond the required curriculum. He branches off into various learning atmospheres by becoming actively involved in the development of the whole child. The ‘light bulb!’ moment in students and seeing everything begin to click for them provides him with an immense pleasure and continuously drives his passion and pedagogy as an educator. It is important to nurture a child’s creative abilities to develop a sense of themselves, understand others and the world around them, and navigate information so that they can confidently take risks and solve problems. Reflection and introspection are fundamental components of Abdulahi’s pedagogy and also his own personal growth and commitment to lifelong learning.

Vivian is a fourth-year international student at Queen’s University under the Concurrent Education program. She was born and raised in Saint Kitts and Nevis but studied abroad in China for her secondary education. Through her travels, Vivian has navigated through various curricula: the Kittian and American curriculum back home and the Chinese and Canadian systems in China. Continuously interacting with students and teachers from multiple countries including Venezuela, Thailand, Korea, and more, she has seen various approaches to learning and teaching- an observation she continues to make as she enters her final year of university. It is from the pedagogical differences in Saint Kitts, China, and Canada that Vivian found a passion for teaching.
For her Bachelor of Arts (Honours), Vivian is majoring in History and minoring in Mathematics. She hopes to teach these subjects at the Intermediate/Secondary level along with English and Computer Science, which she hopes to gain additional qualifications for. She has over five years of experience tutoring ENG2D, ENG3U, MTH1W, MPM2D, MCR3U, MHF4U, and MDM4U. From China to Canada, Vivian continues to develop her craft in teaching by offering one-on-one tutoring services to peers and personal clients. She has strengthened student understanding by identifying and mitigating their academic weaknesses; personalizing notes for sessions; enlisting online resources; and negotiating with various personalities to form valuable student-tutor relationships. She currently focuses on providing her services to at-risk students but is always happy to strengthen anyone’s relationship with academia. The only other passion that rivals teaching for Vivian is her love for Spoon, her cat! However, depending on what Spoon has done the day of, Vivian will tell you that her students are the clear winner.
