Our awesome team!
As a tutor, I consider myself to be a passionate and committed educator. I believe in finding the ‘key’ to each student’s individual learning style, and thus ‘unlocking’ their individual abilities in order to optimize and accelerate their learning. Our mission must be to inspire and foster a love of learning in our students which will last a lifetime, and not only equip them for present day challenges, but for the future!
I believe a tailored learning approach specific to a student’s learning style and needs is crucial in navigating the challenges now faced with the transition from in-class to online distance learning. This new means of learning is lessening a student’s opportunity for one-on-one classroom support. However, I believe students can still flourish with assistance while tackling the academic and social challenges they now face. I have a strong passion for learning and hope to pass on this enthusiasm on to new students. Ultimately, my goal is to help students succeed through patients, active listening, and creative encouragement.
I provide exclusive learning support through stimulating exercises, fun-filled activities, and interesting assignments based upon each student’s learning requirements and learning style. My goal is to explore and utilize different avenues of teaching through thoughtful planning, thereby mapping out a meaningful educational journey dedicated to achieving every student’s academic success.
Compassionate and enthusiastic educator with many years of experience in helping a diverse range of students with Special Needs. Having higher qualifications in Psychology, as well as in Counselling and Psychotherapy, equips me with essential skills which are necessary to work successfully and make an impact in the lives of students with many types and varying degrees of academic challenges. My objective is always to be innovative in tailoring instruction to meet the needs of students with various learning differences.
Besides classical education, in which I hold three postgraduate degrees, I have gained considerable knowledge through continuing education in accounting, business, finance, and therefore consider myself to be an adjustable spanner! I have a natural affinity for teaching and guiding youth, and am especially passionate about teaching High School Math, Physics, Business and Economics. My strategy as a tutor in managing and motivating students is to primarily establish a constructive relationship with my student that earns their trust. In addition, talking to each student in a positive, productive manner causes them to feel that their unique academic needs are being addressed; therefore, I strive to be a great role model for each of my students.
As an educator, I truly believe that every student can learn, enjoy the learning process, and be successful in their studies. I am passionate about education, and I trust that is the ‘key’ to great opportunities. I think it is essential to be ready to teach different learning styles. That is why I tailor my lessons focused on the student’s needs. My goal is to assist students through the learning processing, helping them to feel ready for the professional, academic and social challenges they have been tackling daily.
My name is Marcelo Brasil, I’m passionate about math. Besides teaching technical concepts about Math, I want to share this passion and show the students that Math goes way beyond solving equations, counting numbers and so on. Plato, one of the greatest philosophers of Ancient Greece, allowed only people educated in Math to join Plato’s Academy. Because – as the story goes – only with Math can a person think logically in order to develop all virtues. That’s how important Math truly is.
My main goal as a language teacher is to develop learners’ spoken interaction competencies, which is why I focus on all four areas of a language (reading, writing, speaking and listening). I’m enthusiastic about teaching, and I always involve my students in diverse activities considering their personal interests, and incorporating different learning strategies. I do my best to make learning fun, using role-play activities, creating effective real-life situational exercises with the use of authentic materials and meaningful tasks that promote French language proficiency.
I am a certified teacher in Ontario, with professional experience that includes teaching secondary, intermediate, and junior grades. My teachables are Chemistry, Maths, General Science, and French. My teaching streams are: junior, intermediate, and senior. I foster an exciting and engaging online learning environment by using hands-on activities, intriguing experiments, and real-life connections. One of my strengths is the ability to effectively incorporate technology as a learning tool to consolidate concepts and promote pupil participation in their learning.
See you in class!
Being a mother inspires my role as a teacher. It does not matter how old my students are, I help them most by serving their needs to express themselves. Learning a language adds knowledge about the world, builds character and confidence. My learners succeed through discipline, patience, and the certainty that I will be there to guide them every step of the way – just like mom.
The fact that I am passionate about learning more about the subject I’m teaching, has made me ever more motivated to teach it. I believe in teaching as a means and medium to transfer knowledge and expertise, in a positive and inspiring environment. I tend to create an inviting and engaging atmosphere for learners in class, firstly, and most importantly to engage the learners’ interest, and secondly, to break the cycle of monotonous learning. While devising lesson plans and delivering lessons, I also cater for different leaners’ needs, styles and (mixed) abilities by differentiating tasks and including varied and interactive activities, in order to maximize the learning experience. My motto as an educator is to be a guide and a mediator between the content and the learner, to ultimately achieve autonomy, in and outside class, as the ideal outcome.
My philosophy of education is that all students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment in which they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Student centered learning is the best model to build a life-long learner. It is my objective to create an online environment where students can realize their full potential. I aspire to provide an innovative, digital environment, where ideas can be shared, and
problem-solving skills developed.
I believe that there are five essential elements that are conducive to learning.
- The teacher’s role is to guide.
- Students must have access to hands-on, interactive activities.
- Students should be able to make choices, and let their curiosity direct their
- Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a creative, well-resourced digital
- The most updated digital strategies must be incorporated into each learning session.
