About Our Tutors
Our tutors are a diverse group of dedicated, educated people; teachers,
students, working professionals, and retirees. Everyone has post-secondary
education and is personally interviewed to ensure excellent communication
skills, knowledge, and commitment before submitting references and a background check.
Each student-tutor match is made individually to meet the needs of the
student and we continue to work with both sides to ensure success. It
may be reading fundamentals for a child, or highly focused knowledge of
statistics for university students.
Our tutors assist with knowledgeable academically, as well as being mentors,
and skilled coaches. Ask us how we can help build other skills. We’re
more than just math.
