Hi we went with Sonia A. and have had two sessions with her so far. Another one scheduled for this Thursday. She is awesome!!!!!! Thank you so very much for recommending her. 😊
Math, Grade 9
Great, helpful service
We finally had our first session with Rachel and were really happy with her services. She was great with my kids and made the session fun and enjoyable for them. We will be using her again!
The TTS process overall has been really great, helpful and easy to use as well.
Primary 1 & 3
My daughter has had her second tutoring session with Nicole and really likes her. She says Nicole explains things very well and she really likes her as a person. Thanks so much for suggesting Nicole.
Math, Pre-Calculus, 11
Ron is an excellent tutor, and he has really helped Justine. I used to work for TTS, and I really liked it, so I’m so happy my own daughter has been able to benefit from their tutors.
Very happy with TTS’s service
We’ve been very happy with your service over the years.
Grade 10 Math
Very accommodating and highly recommended
I highly recommend TTS and Silviu Z. I have had Silviu as my math and physics tutor for 3 years, he helped me from IB Math and IB Physics HL, all the way to Math 154, Math 152, Phys 101, and Phys 102 at SFU. Not only does he provide concise and easy to understand notes, he also will send lots of practice outside of tutorials if needed, and is very accommodating to student schedules. Many times he held extra sessions with me before major tests. He also tries to connect with his students, and is always very kind to give general life advice as well. I feel that my education was enriched with his help, and am super grateful for all the help from TTS and Silviu.
Responsive and excellent communicator
My daughter and Emily are getting along well. My daughter is learning a lot which is the goal! Emily is responsive and has excellent communication skills. Although it is still early days, we are very pleased with her.
Knowledgeable and caring
Silviu has tutored me for high school math and physics (VSB), as well as university math and physics courses at UBC. During the breaks before classes start, Silviu has taught me important concepts for courses (such as MATH 102, MATH 103, and PHYS 131) so I can get ahead. In high school, due to COVID-19, we had barely covered integral calculus and I found it challenging. In university, for MATH 103, I was upset that I did not get the mark I had hoped for on my first midterm, but Silviu encouraged me to not give up and to not let this one mark discourage me from working harder. We continued to go through all the concepts extensively, I was able to improve, and I got 89% as a final mark. Without his help and encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve been able to get this high of a mark. Not only is Silviu a knowledgeable tutor but he genuinely cares about his students.
As well, he places emphasis on common exam-type questions, concepts, and mistakes that students often make, which I found very helpful when preparing for exams. I especially recommend Silviu as a tutor for university math and physics courses because he can fill in the gaps in your knowledge and he knows what he’s doing.
Kind, friendly, and flexible
We just finished a year of tutoring with Silviu for my son’s Math Foundations 11 and 12 classes and Silviu’s services were much appreciated. We had 1.5 hours per week online over Skype, which allowed for a good amount of time for a lesson, time for my son to work on questions with support and then time to go over the questions. My son liked how Silviu’s explanations and materials were clear and understandable and how Silviu made sure what they were working on in tutoring mirrored what my son was working on in class. We found Silviu to be kind, friendly, and flexible and my son credits Silviu’s regular help for helping him pass his two math courses this year.
Math Foundations 11 and 12
After tutoring, our child became an enthusiastic learner
It’s with pleasure I submit this testimonial for Sonia A. Sonia worked with our child during grades three to six to develop literacy skills in French and English as well as foundational math skills. In grade three, our child lacked confidence and was not able to perform at grade level. Now our child is finishing grade six with an excellent report card, and no academic concerns about entering grade seven. Sonia’s instruction was instrumental in our child’s transition to an enthusiastic learner who looks forward to school. I recommend Sonia A. unequivocally.
