RAFFAELE B.

I am a high school vice principal, teacher and instructional coach specializing in Mathematics and Physics. I bring 20 years of teaching experience in high school math, empowering kids to gain confidence and improve their mathematical ability so that they can become life-long learners confident to handle the challenges of the work place, or post- secondary education.
I specialize in provincial exam prep (Pre-Calc and Applied 12) but am willing to work in any level of math.
I have many hobbies including sports (hockey, golf, basketball), learning languages (I am self taught in Italian and Greek), and music (I play guitar).

Farah N.

Dylan B.

Dylan has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Ottawa. In both degrees, he graduated Magna Cum Laude. His teaching credentials consist of both Mathematics and English in the intermediate and senior division. In addition to his degrees, Dylan has studied in courses consisting of content in algebra, calculus, statistics, and economics

Before joining Prep Academy Tutors, Dylan spent 2 years in a Teacher’s Education program at the
University of Ottawa. His teaching placements were at York Street Public School and Adult High School. His first placement in intermediate primarily tested his abilities in classroom management, and differentiation in Mathematics. His second placement with adult ELDs primarily tested his abilities to communicate to students with significant gaps in knowledge. Dylan presently works as an online grading teacher for Rosedale Academy, which is a global high school with many partner schools around the world

Dylan is a firm believer that the purpose of education is not mere memorization of facts, but rather to acquire a deep and lasting understanding of the subject that is both applicable to everyday life and allows for personal growth.
