What people are saying about our tutors

Very Delighted and Thankful!


My son Leon just finished the initial sessions with both Purnima and Brenna. We’re delighted with both teachers and have scheduled weekly sessions. We extend our thanks to TTS for facilitating the introduction to excellent tutors who meet our child’s educational requirements. Best regards.

Highly recommended tutor 

During the end of grade 11 and throughout the entirety of grade 12, Silviu helped me improve my understanding in IB SL Math and maintain a good grade for my exams. He has many resources, such as clear notes and helpful worksheets, and insightful knowledge that put me on the path of improvement during our lessons. He is also flexible with lesson times and is able to do extra classes if needed. With his guidance, Silviu gave me more knowledge that went beyond what I was learning in class, and I am very grateful for his services.

Wonderful Service!

Thank you very much for your message and support. My daughter had her second tutoring session with Kathy C. this evening.  So grateful for Kathy’s support!  My daughter is finding the service to be very helpful!  All appears to be going very well and we have ongoing sessions scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Thank you so much for this wonderful service!

Great Tutor, learned lots

For the past semester I’ve had Silviu help me out in Calculus 12. Usually math is not my best course. But with his help I managed to get myself a very good mark in the class. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and always does his best to make time for you if you need extra classes.

Happy with the service.

So far we are happy with the service and wish we had started this earlier in the year! Google meets is very user friendly and simple to set up. The teacher was on time and got right into the subject my son needs help with. My son said he is starting to understand the concepts of what they worked on and he seems very positive about the lesson. We have booked Ron P. for 3 more sessions. We will definitely be booking regular weekly sessions in my son’s upcoming year.

Enjoyed the lesson!

Emily my daughter, really enjoyed her tutor lesson with Nicole B. She explained everything very well and she said Nicole helped her understand the actual concept instead of just teaching her how to do it. I am very impressed so far!! My daughter’s confidence was given a real boost!!!

Thank you so much.

Very pleased for many reasons

We are very pleased for many reasons.  Marguerite was very flexible in determining a day, time and place to meet.  She was also willing to meet in person which we felt would be best for our daughters learning.

Marg is a perfect match because she currently teaches my daughter’s age group and has many years of experience.  This is beneficial because she understands the milestones and has all the teacher resources.  She is a very gentle and kind soul and is so sweet and respectful towards L.  I think/hope having Marg will help to advance L.’s learning skills. We will continue once a week for as long as we can afford to 🙂

Very easy to work with

On Monday my daughter Justine had her first session with her math tutor Ian W. Justine said he was very easy to work with and he helped her with math questions right away. They have planned their next session, and I think they are a good match
