Amanda is currently doing her Masters in Environmental Studies at York University. Her research looks at integrating more environmental education into mainstream schooling. She believes that this will allow students to learn nature-based coping strategies and for students to be able to practice mindfulness in the classroom.
She has a passion for teaching math and understands that it can be a struggle for some students. She tries to make the lessons as engaging and relatable as possible so students are able to make personal connections with the material. Amanda’s passion for teaching grew as she became more familiar with environmental education and the importance of building a positive relationship with nature. Her ultimate goal is to create a learning environment where her students feel like it’s okay to make mistakes and ask questions.
Rupesh has 10 years of experience in tutoring. He has assisted students from various curriculums all across the globe. His extensive knowledge of the subject matter and distinctive teaching style makes him stand out from others. He is passionate about teaching, and his hard work & dedication always result in his students’ success.
He follows the technique called “ALBERRT” to teach his students.
A = AMICABLE. (It indicates that he deals with the students in a friendly manner, allowing him to build a friendly relationship with the students and better understand their needs.)
L= LAYMAN’S (He believes that explaining things in layman’s terms makes them easier to understand.)
B= BASICS (Focusing on the fundamentals and strengthening them helps students tackle advanced and difficult-level problems.)
R= REPETITION (He usually happens to repeat the concepts in different ways until he makes sure that the student has fully understood them.)
R= RATIFICATION ( It means he always asks for confirmation whether the student has understood the concepts properly or not then only he moves ahead.)
T= TEST ( He always conducts tests, including surprise tests.) So that he can determine whether the student is progressing in his studies. It also aids in revision.)
Angelina studied mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Due to her strong performance there, she was hired by the math department to help tutor and mentor students in Calculus II. Through this opportunity, she fell in love with tutoring specifically and being able to help students 1 on 1. From there, she began tutoring independently with even more success. Angelina has helped students get into U of T, Waterloo, UBC, and more. Students, with her help, have moved up whole letter grades and improved significantly on standardized testing. Aside from tutoring, Angelina is also working on research and plans to obtain a master’s degree in educational psychology or cognitive science.
Angelina grew up moving around between different countries and experiencing different school systems. For high school, she attended an international school in Thailand where she obtained an IB Diploma. She always loved math and science but one of the best parts of high school and university was always being able to share that with others. Now, working as a tutor, it is incredible to not only continue sharing that but to see the students’ she always believed in achieving their goals.
Harry has a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Toronto and has nearly completed a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Toronto.Harry has been tutoring students ages 10 and up for 8 years. In that time, he has taught everything from grade-school math all the way up to 3rd year university physics, chemistry, math, and statistics.
In addition to his 8 years of experience as a one-on-one tutor, Harry has 5 years of experience tutoring students online, and 2 years of experience teaching classes of 30 students.
Harry’s teaching style uses a student’s understanding of the concrete world around them as a springboard for learning math. He starts by giving his student a concrete problem to solve. Once they’ve solved it correctly, he changes the problem slightly and asks them to solve it again. He then challenges his student to find similarities between the two solutions and generalize any patterns they see. Then he and his student discuss how these abstract patterns relate back to concepts his student might be learning in class.
This technique has proven an essential arsenal in Harry’s tool kit for teaching math, especially to younger kids, and Harry hopes to continue to hone it as he exposes more and more students to it.
