Mark M.

Mark has his bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D from the University of Texas at Austin. During his time at UT, Mark discovered the joy of teaching and of seeing his students grasp new concepts and put them to use. He also taught a variety of subjects and r eceived two teaching awards in 10 years.

His favorite teaching topics include math (from Algebra to Statistics) and science (from Biology to Psychology). Mark’s academic focus has been on how people learn and retain memories. All of these academic pursuits continue to have an impact on Mark’s music. (Some even say “a positive impact.”)

When Mark is not consulting with individuals and corporations to help them become more efficient, you’ll most likely find him hiking, trail running, or playing soccer.

Harman is an Ontario Certified Senior Teacher that Specializes in Mathematics and Science and works with students from Junior kindergarten to high school at ROTMAN ARTS & SCIENCE SCHOOL, Vaughan . Harman graduated with her Masters in Mathematics, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Education

her approach to teaching is to focus on helping her students understand and master the material, rather than just memorize formulas or techniques. She believes that this is a key to long-term success in any subject.

To achieve this, Harman uses numerous teaching methods and resources in her lessons. This might include interactive investigation, problem- solving exercises, or visual aids such as diagram graphs or flow charts. She also encourages her students to ask questions and actively participate in the learning process, this helps them develop a deeper understanding of the subject and makes the learning process more enjoyable.

Knowing that there are different learning styles, Harman makes an effort to tailor her lessons to individual needs and learning styles. For Example, if a student is more visual, she might use more diagrams and flow charts in her lessons, while if a student is more hands-on, she might use more interactive or problem-solving exercises .

In her spare time, she loves to draw sketches, cook and spend time exploring nature.

Overall, her goal as a tutor is to share her knowledge and expertise in a way that helps learners succeed.
