Mitchell P.

Hello, my name is Mitchell, I am certified with the Ontario College of Teachers working with the Durham District School Board. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree specializing in history, english and other humanities subjects. I am passionate about teaching and learning and seek to share that passion with the students that I work with.
Education is an essential part of every young person’s journey. Every student has not only the right to learning, but also needs to be given a chance at being successful in their education. I believe every student has the capacity for success. It is every teacher’s duty and responsibility to provide the students we work with the support and tools they need to succeed, in a safe and positive environment.
I look forward to aiding in your students’ success in their educational journey.

Hi, my name is Kayla! I am currently a teacher candidate at Lakehead University. I have graduated with a degree in Kinesiology and a certificate in therapeutic recreation prior to starting my Bachelor of Education.

I have been fortunate enough to have volunteered and had placement experiences in both the Durham and Toronto school boards in classes from kindergarten to grade five.

As an educator, I look forward to helping students feel confident and empowered in their learning. I aim to create a safe and fun learning environment using a differentiated approach so that each student can succeed.

I see myself as a lifelong learner, and am often found trying new things and picking up new skills. Right now during my spare time I enjoy getting outside, reading and crafting!

I then discovered my passion for special education and earned a diploma in Developmental Service Work. I have spent the past 5 years working in schools as an educational assistant and I have loved every minute of it. As a current student, I recognize how difficult learning can be.

Luminous Greetings!

I am Sanya and I have been an OCT certified Secondary School Math teacher for almost 20 years with the Toronto District School Board.

My passion for empowering others to reach their highest potential was one of the main reasons why I decided to become an educator, and specifically a Teacher of Mathematics, as Math is one of those subjects that many people have a lot of psychological baggage around; filled to the brim with limiting beliefs due to experiences they had in their formative years of learning. Because of this, my mission is to inspire, empower and support my students in overcoming any limiting beliefs they may have about their capacity to be, not only be successful math students, but to excel! You see, I believe that we all have an Inner Genius that resides within us, and once we are able to connect with that Inner Genius, we become empowered to reach our full potential.

My teaching style is student-directed, engaging and focuses on cultivating an empowered and positive mindset, especially in the face of challenges or failures; which I encourage my students see as opportunities for deeper learning and competency. I also believe it is imperative that students are proactive in their learning experience and advocate for themselves to ensure they receiving the support and clarity they require in order to optimize their learning experience and academic outcomes.

It is my pleasure and privilege to be among the exceptional educators at Prep Academy Tutors and to have the opportunity to provide engaging, student-focused and effective learning experiences that will lead to academic excellence for the students that we serve.

Laura B.

Hello! My name is Laura. I am a teacher candidate at Ontario Tech University in Oshawa.

My academic path has lead me down many different roads and I have gained experience in many subjects as a result. I have studied Biological Anthropology, Archaeology, Classical History, World History, and Forensic Science, all of which I have a strong passion for that I hope to pass on to my students.

In my spare time, I love to read and write. I particularly enjoy YA fantasy novels, and one of my life goals is to write my own YA novel some day! I go rock climbing and love to swim to stay active, but I am guilty of spending a lot of time playing video games (which actually teach a lot of useful skills!).

I look forward to helping students not only understand course material but actually enjoy learning. That is what matters most in education.
