Connecting all ideas together
Silviu has tutored me for BIOL300 at UBC, which is a statistics course with applications to biology. Prior to this, I had never taken any statistics courses, so everything was completely new. It was challenging for me to understand all the different statistical tests and know when to apply them, but Silviu was able to help connect all the ideas together. If you need help in statistics, math, or physics, I would highly recommend Silviu!
Statistics – College/University Level
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

Great Start and Service.
Hi! It was a great start with Melissa S.! She is professional and responsible. She mentioned she will talk to my son’s school teachers about his school work which we were hoping. We’re quite satisfied with her! And also I appreciate TTS, because it was very quick response and gave me some teachers info which included special needs kids expertise. Thank you so much!

My son Nathan had his first session with Ron P. Nathan had Ron as a tutor for grade 12 chemistry and Ron really helped Nathan! We think Ron is the absolute best! Thanks again!
Excitement over learning Science
My son was really struggling to organize his time doing it solo through VLN. Purnima H. was a wonderful help and I’m grateful that she gave him some excitement and learning around science to offset the onscreen learning he was attempting to do.

An amazing teacher
B. has been working with Isaiah L. for 1.5 years for math support. Isaiah is an amazing teacher! He is knowledgeable, kind and patient. He teaches for the whole hour and stays focused.

Interactive Tutoring is beneficial
My daughter Naomi has had 2 tutoring sessions with Moira over the Christmas break. Both sessions went very well. My daughter was able to connect with Moira and understand her explanations. Also, Moira’s style is very interactive as opposed to the teacher doing most of the talking and the student mainly listening. Moira seems to be very good at assessing where the lesson needs to go next. We plan to contact Moira for further assistance as required in the future. Thank you.
Physics, Grade 11
This semester I had Silviu’s help in Stat 201 (Stats for the Life Sciences) at SFU. I have only done stats very briefly in the IB program in AA SL math. However, with his help and guidance, I got a very high mark. Silviu has helped me with many other courses in the past, and he is very knowledgeable and provides clear notes in Physics, Calculus, and Statistics. If you’re in need of a university level tutor in those subjects, reach out to Silviu Z or TTS!

Hi, my lesson last night with Azita went very well, I really enjoyed it. Her explanation was very helpful, and overall I thoroughly enjoyed the session.

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.

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.

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.

I hope this email finds you well. My name is Edmond Y. I appreciate how efficient your service connects me to well-trained tutors and I had a wonderful tutoring experience with Dan B. during the past several months. Thank you for your help, I really appreciate your assistance.
I had my first session with Lisa L for university level statistics on the weekend. Thanks for your suggestions. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable on the topic, and teaches at a pace that suits my needs. I’m very satisfied with her instruction, and will be continuing services with her.
Thanks again for your help in finding a tutor.
My teacher and my friend.
I truly appreciate Meguido Z.’s help. I learnt a lot from him and I trust him. We know that he cares about us. …..He’s a very nice and responsible teacher. He’s not only my teacher, but also my teacher and my friend. I thank him again!

So we scheduled Jeremy R. for our Math 10 tutor and I must say my daughter absolutely loves his teaching style. She says he is humorous and his pace is perfect and he explains things really well. Thank you!
Hi Gerry, Thanks for all your help! I received a 91% final grade in the course and a 10/10 on the optics lab!
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.

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.
