Still wondering about tutoring costs?


Cost of tutoring broken down

TTS is a non profit society, and as such, our goal is to provide you with affordable, high quality tutoring, while minimizing cost. The bulk of the $53/hr hourly rate is paid to the tutor, while a small portion of it covers the TTS administration and staffing costs. In addition, TTS then donates a small part of this amount to TAS Tutoring Aid Society, our registered BC charity that provides subsidized tutoring services to students that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford tutoring.

What people are saying about our tutors

Quality Support & Expert Advice

I have had the privilege of being a student of Mr. Silviu Z. for the past four years in which I have been tutored in various grades of high school Math and Physics. His organization and preparedness for all tutorials made all experiences with him appear seamless and informative. He is a skilled teacher who is well-versed with the content he teaches. The materials provided were always helpful, namely with the AP Calculus AB course in which he offered expert advice, useful resources, and thorough preparation for the AP exam. 

Would definitely recommend Silviu Z. and the TTS service to anyone who is looking for quality support with their academics.

Quick and easy to use matching service

Patricia K. has been great for my daughter. She has a bright demeanor and is very engaging in her approach. The OG method of spelling appears to be working well after two sessions, and my daughter looks forward to continuing her work with Patty. We feel lucky to have found someone with so much skill and experience.

Thanks to TTS for offering such a quick and easy to use matching service! I will recommend TTS to all my friends.

Dedicated Tutor

Abel was a very dedicated tutor. He prepared a lot of materials to help me review and went above and beyond for his students. He helped me improve my marks in Chemistry and Biology. 100% would recommend him as a tutor.

Abel deserves all the praise

Abel C. has been supporting my son Aleksandar M. as his grade 8 math tutor since September 2023. We have been very fortunate to have Abel as Aleksandar’s tutor.  We appreciate Abel’s professional, prompt and ongoing communication with us. As part of his lesson planning, Abel never fails to reach out to us ahead of each class to inquire about the math concepts that Aleksandar would like to go over. He inquires about any upcoming math tests and any math problems that Aleksandar would like to practice/review.  Abel is patient when delivering his lecture and highly supportive and encouraging of Aleksandar. My son Aleksandar feels comfortable to ask questions and seek clarifications during the tutoring lessons.

We also highly value that Abel goes above and beyond  the math concepts covered at my son’s school, and challenges my son by providing math problems with different levels of difficulty. My son also appreciates that Abel offers a different perspective and different ways of solving one math problem. Working with Abel has given my son more confidence in his math skills and he is truly enjoying math this school year. He has also done very well in tests at school. 

Abel is very generous with his time and will go past the scheduled class time in order to finish the exercise with my son. We are very grateful for that but are also very respectful of Abel’s time. Thank you for your support and collaboration.

Incredibly Responsive!

Lee W. has been incredibly responsive. He has also been a very positive tutor – able to provide feedback in a positive and constructive manner. 

After the first meeting, my son was able to connect and engage with him relatively quickly. I also appreciated Lee’s adaptability- we were able to schedule in about 4 in person sessions in a given week. 

We hope to connect with Lee for future sessions and connect him with my daughter as well.

Tutor Who Makes a Difference

We just wanted to express how very grateful we are that Fremont was fortunate enough to find such an amazing physics tutor in Gerry M. He has made a huge difference to his understanding and I think his enjoyment of the subject. I think his interim report card showed a 92% in physics overall so far. He enjoys working with Gerry very much and I think we all consider Gerry to be to physics what Michael Jordan is to basketball! So please know that Gerry’s expertise and passion for the subject and his ability to share that with students is very much appreciated – we know it is not easy to find someone of his calibre but we are certainly happy we did.

With gratitude,
