Hello, my name is Leah. I have a Master’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Waterloo. I completed my B.Sc. (Honours) in Mathematics with a minor in French Language at Trent University. I have been tutoring mathematics for over 6 years. I am highly familiar with the current mathematics curriculum for grades 9 to 12 (including grade 12 calculus and vectors and grade 12 data management). I also have experience tutoring IB level mathematics. I believe it is important to get to know each student, their learning style and their current math skills in order to tailor my teaching style and lesson delivery to suite their needs. I believe it is also important to create a positive learning environment, since many students lack confidence in mathematics. Through my excellent teaching and unwavering support, I am committed to guiding each student I tutor towards a deeper procedural and conceptual understanding of math and at the same time, boosting their confidence.
