I would like to share a testimonial on behalf of my son Mark who recently was tutored by Silviu – I reached out to Silviu Z. to get support with my Pre-Calculus 12 course. With Silviu’s help, I was able to understand challenging concepts, get insights into the course content, and as a result, I received high marks on quizzes and tests. His lectures were well-organized and broken down into steps for easy compreshension. I highly recommend Silviu to those who need support in their Pre-Calculus 12 courses.
Math, Pre-Calculus 12
My son excelled in grade 11 math thanks to John’s care and professionalism. His teaching style is efficient and encouraging. My son especially appreiated John’s expertise in breaking down challenging concepts. Thank you for the referral!
Math, Pre-Calculus 11
John B. has been tutoring my son in Pre-Cal 12 and has made an incredible difference in my son’s confidence and his understanding of the curriculum. My son says he explains concepts very thoroughly and his mark has gone from being in the C range to the A range. He sends extra practise when we ask and records the lessons so my son can go over it again if needed. I really appreciate all the work he has done with my son.

We had our first lesson with Vania yesterday and the children really liked her. Thank you so much for your suggestions. It is a great service.
Finding the Teachers’ Tutoring Service has been an absolute game changer for our family. The process of finding a tutor was efficient and easy. The teachers are all highly qualified and familiar with helping kids work through current school curriculums. Zahra is the first instructor that has been patient enough to teach math to our daughter in a way that she can actually understand. Instead of confusion and tears we now have smiles after math lessons.
Excellent service, professional and great help. Ms. Vivian is an amazing teacher.
Thank you. This is an incredible service.
Silviu Z. has tutored me for a few years and he has greatly helped increase my understanding of math and physics. He is very knowledgeable, knows common mistakes that students make, and can make difficult concepts easy to grasp. I highly recommend him to anyone needing help in math or physics!
Pre-calculus 11/12, Calculus 12, Physics 11/12
I contacted Silviu Z wanting help with completing my online Calculus course in order to meet the requirements of my acceptance to U of T. With the very short amount of time I had until the university required my final grade Silviu Z was able to deliver clear and concise lessons that made understanding the content a breeze. Many times Silviu Z was able to find mistakes in the questions of the online course that I and the online teacher had not been able to notice. Without the help, I doubt I would have been able to finish the course in time and with such a breadth of understanding. I highly recommend using Silviu and TTS to anyone!
I have been tutoring with Silviu Z. since my 10th year in high school. He helped me in many different courses which include math 10, pre-calculus 11, pre-calculus 12, physics 11, physics 12, and now recently calculus 12. He is an excellent and very professional teacher who is profound at teaching and giving instructions. I would 100% recommend him to anyone who is in need of a great teacher.
