BC Certified Math Teachers in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey and Coquitlam
When hiring a Math tutor it is important that parents and guardians ensure they choose a qualified person for the job. While a tutor may have the knowledge of the subject matter and may even have a degree in Math or Physics, he or she may not necessarily have the skills to convey their knowledge to the student.
Most Math Tutors at Teachers’ Tutoring Service not only have degrees in Mathematics, Physics or Engineering, but also degrees in Education. In addition to that, most are either current or retired teachers and have years of experience teaching in BC schools and hands on knowledge of BC Curriculum. They are knowledgeable in various teaching techniques and methodologies and can easily adapt to the needs of a particular student.
Our Tutors can help with the following subjects:
Primary School: Math 1-3, Math 4, Math 5, Math 6, Math 7, Math 8,
High School: Math 9, Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 10, Foundations of Math 10, Pre-Calculus 10, Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 11, Foundations of Math 11, Pre-Calculus 11, Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 12, Foundations of Math 12, Pre-Calculus 12 and Calculus 12
Here is what some of TTS tutors say about their teaching methods:
Connect with one of our 300 Tutors
Different approaches to tutoring different students depend entirely on their learning styles. If the student is auditory, speaking and have them respond back during tutoring is sufficient. If the student is kinaesthetic, they need to show you their understanding using a hands on approach, and if they are visual, they may need to draw out their thinking.
Students will respond to the tutor based on their learning style and it will be evident where they are at. Some students may need to throw an object back and forth while communicating to the tutor. Other students may need to run around and give the tutor an answer each time they pass her by, yet other students will draw out their thinking in a picture layout.
I adjust my tutoring in regards to each student needs ( including a small thing like how fast/ slow I talk to the student, a balance between explanations and direct “how to” approach) yet if there is one similar thing in all my tutoring sessions: it is my calm and confident nature ( which is genuine and based on my long experience and strong knowledge of the subject matter). I am able to quickly assess what are student’s strengths and build on that and usually build different strategy for each student one season at the time.
I try to approach homework assignments using the same method the teacher has used. If this does not seem to be working, I will try other methods provided they will be acceptable to the classroom teacher. My goal is to develop confidence. It is so rewarding to see them so pleased to find they are able to master a new concept and solve problems independently. Some students are too fast and careless so the challenge is to find a way to slow them down. Others are slow to learn new concepts so the challenge is to find ways to praise every small bit of progress. Showing patience and encouragement is huge for all the students and they tend to pick up your level of desire to help them.
I would say the biggest advantages of qualified teachers as tutors is that they have real experience, understanding and interest in the subject. Another tutor that is maybe still a student himself might be able to show how to solve the problems required in a course, but he won’t really be able to provide the reasons why it is important to learn to solve the problems. A qualified teacher can understand how a student is thinking and see the reasons for misunderstandings or mistakes a student makes.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!
My daughter worked with Stephanie last year for grade 10 math and science, and she was just excellent. It made a really big difference in our daughter’s success. Stephanie was very proactive, organized and professional. She was excellent at explaining the concepts and tailoring strategies to our daughter’s needs and learning style. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her! Thank you so much.
We will continue with tutoring next year. Leon L. has become a fixture at the home and the student has so benefited from his presence.
I have worked with Silviu Z for the past year in an effort to pass my university level Math course. He cares for his students’ success in the course and is very helpful.
We saw Lori F. today. She seemed very calm, patient, and understanding. We just started a math session today so will see how it goes tomorrow when she comes back for a second session. My son really needs help as he is presently failing his Math…he is overwhelmed but the first session went very well with Lori. He said she’s really smart (:
Edmond Z. is an amazing physics tutor! Can explain concepts thoroughly.
We used Lori F. for tutoring Math 11 for my daughter. Lori is very good and my daughter is quite satisfied with the tutoring she is getting. Thank you.
Silviu is a phenomenal tutor
Silviu is a phenomenal tutor, and really helped me improve my performance in IB Physics and IB Mathematics in both Grade 11 and Grade 12. Providing exercises and practice packages for each topic covered, Silviu ensured that my skills were sharpened and that I was able to work efficiently and accurately under the pressure of a time limit. Highly recommend!
Silviu Z. did an excellent job tutoring me physics and calculus. He is great at explaining and teaching new concepts, and knows how much time to spend on each concept. My understanding of the aforementioned subject areas really improved with his tutorials.
Such a great tutor
Hi, This is Rahma, I got a tutor from your guys her name is Hanh. She’s currently tutoring me math 10,11,12 and chemistry. She’s very kind, patient, helps cover all the basics and she does not mind taking extra time out of her schedule to help you out. She’s such a great tutor and me and my family are very well pleased with her.
Phil K. has met my daughter 3 times only and I can already see the positive effects of his teaching.
The information is presented clearly and precisely, in a very polite and soothing manner which my daughter truly craves. That gives her the opportunity to retain the topics taught with no hesitation and great confidence.
My daughter rates him 10/10 and that says a lot to me.
We can’t wait for more sessions with Phil.
Super talented tutors
We chose Arthur H. and he has been marvelous. We originally scheduled for Physics and now my son is going to continue this semester for Pre-Calculus. This has been a great experience and I have recommended your website several times. Thank you.
I took Math 157 at Simon Fraser University and found Silviu Z. to be a very helpful tutor.
This service is excellent and we have used many of your tutors; Eric C., Saiqa M., and Rouzbeh K. We have found them all to be wonderful tutors and very accommodating:) Thank you so much!
Excellent tutoring service
I was tutored by Silviu Z. He was an excellent tutor and helped improve my math grade dramatically. If I ever had any questions or wanted to study a specific subject of math, Silviu would be able to help me right away. I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs assistance in grade 11 and 12 math.
Things are going very well with Maria H. She is an excellent Tutor.
Tutoring for Physics 11
We recently used Eric C. for my son who was needing help in Physics 11. My son found Eric extremely helpful and in the 1 session that we used him he covered everything that was needed. We will definitely be using him again when needed.
A quick response with four quality choices
We requested a referral for a tutor earlier in the summer and receive a quick response with four quality choices. We will be meeting one of the teachers next week, and hopefully setting up a schedule for the fall. Thanks for your assistance!
We decided to go with John A. So far my son has had two sessions. He is already feeling more confident and happier.
Thank you for referring Mahdi M. and Preet N. to us!
We ended up engaging Kia A. to help our daughter prepare for her math final. We had two sessions with the first one for an hour and the second for 1.5 hours. She wrote the exam yesterday and did better than expected so the tutoring was definitely worthwhile. Thank you for your assistance,
Kind and Dedicated Math Tutor
This was the first time I searched for a math tutor in my life … and luckily I was able to find the right person who could lead me to success. I really enjoyed the one-to-one sessions with Silviu. He was always well prepared and organized for me and he knew exactly what I needed to do to do well on the math exam I had to pass in order for me to get into a statistic course. His instruction was very clear and whenever I did not understand anything he was nice enough to explain until I felt confident about the material. Not only is he a great tutor but he is also a very nice person. He really cares for his students and he is very dedicated to helping students. I am glad I reached out for help this time and that I met Silviu through TTS!
Grade 5 Math Tutor
Sara B. has been working with my daughter for several weeks. I can see an increase in my daughter’s confidence when doing math and an improvement in her understanding of the basic concepts and how to apply them.
Pleased with service.
I contacted the tutors you provided me with and they got back to me. I chose to work with Clara T. since she got back to me the fastest. We have had one session so far and it has gone very well and I am very happy. I was very pleased with your service because it was very easy and helpful! And all of the tutors were very nice when I contacted them.
To whom it may concern,
My husband and I, would like to express our many thanks to you, for recommending Nancy P, who was a tutor for our grade 12 graduate this year.
Nancy genuinely cares, is very intelligent, and is the reason our son did as well as he did.
Thank you Nancy, for everything, and enjoy your summer!!
Great to work with
I got a response from the Teachers’ Tutoring Service regarding a math and science tutor for my grade 10 and grade 11 sons.
Eric C. was prompt, attentive and very knowledgeable in the fields of math and science. I was relieved to have him on board and he has made a great difference in the boys homework style and ability.
We contacted Masoud L. and arranged a session on Saturday afternoon. My child felt that his assistance was quite valuable and now feels very comfortable with the unit material. We anticipate arranging more sessions in the future.
We have retained Hong Y. and she started with my daughter this past Sunday. I believe they will work well together. We find Hong to be a wonderful lady.
Thank you for the follow up and assistance.
Thank you for recommending Isaiah L. He is a very good tutor. Your services and follow-up are great.
I am writing to thank you and Maher M. He did a great job tutoring my son last year.
Math 11 Pre-Calculus
Eric C. was very good with guiding me through each chapter that I did not know well. He was able to properly teach me methods that were easy to use and gave me a better understanding of what I was struggling with the most. It was great to see how much he was able to teach with limited time. Thanks Eric!!
Leon L. has tutored my son twice now, and we will be continuing with him. He is very kind and knowledgeable and is making a difference with my son’s math confidence. We are very happy so far!
Our contact with teachers tutoring service has produced a most positive and encouraging result. We chose Lynne H. for math help and basic understanding for our wonderful seven year old grandson. Already he had learned to dislike school due to his embarrassment and shyness about asking for help. One visit with Lynne and his attitude towards learning about math has completely changed. From hiding from her at the beginning of the first visit to waving happily at her arrival on the second visit says it all. A skilled, knowledgable and compassionate teacher with humour and a true gift for putting a child at ease…this has been our gift in meeting Lynne. We look forward to many more sessions!
My daughter has had some sessions with Tom L. He is terrific and she plans to continue working with him once per week. Thanks very much for the recommendation.
We had Ali M. over at our house on Tuesday evening and he was fabulous with our son. They spent two hours together and my son felt great afterwards. We will have Ali over again this Sunday for another two hours of teaching. Thank you so much. We are very happy.
Hi, We’ve used Janice R. a couple of times. She is awesome…my daughter really likes her. Thanks!
Thank you so much!
Silviu Z. did an amazing job tutoring me for Pre-Calculus 12. I definitely understood the material much better and he answered any questions I had! He is very easy to contact and does all he can to help. Thank you!
It was really nice to see my son concentrate on his work. The tutor was really nice. His relaxed approach made it easy for my son to follow along and contribute.
We have been inspired by his love for math
Thank you for providing a list of tutors. My son has had his first lesson with Arthur H. today.
We have been inspired by his love for math, and his ability to restore a measure of confidence. We look forward to meeting with him again next week.
My daughter had her first session this morning with Shana S. and it went very well. My daughter really liked her and is happy to continue having sessions with her. Thank you so much!
Madhi M. has come over for 1 session so far. He is really good and knows his stuff. We will keep going with him.
Confident and knowledgeable
Hi TTS, just wanted to say thanks for providing math tutors for my daughters. They went from confused and frustrated to confident and knowledgeable. I also appreciated that the tutor was just a short walk from our home.
Superior teaching abilities!
I had Silviu Z. as a tutor for many years, with him helpfully reinforcing concepts taught in my IB Math SL, IB Physics HL/SL, and MATH157 (Calculus I for the Social Sciences) courses. He was a great help in the higher level courses, as his university-level expertise provided me with confidence in my university education. I highly recommend Silviu and TTS for enhancing success in education!
I wanted to say thank you to Peri S. for the wonderful job she has done with our son this school year… his math grades have never been better. It is all thanks to her so I want to say how grateful we are.
The whole experience working with TTS was very positive. Response time with names of tutors was quick and the tutor, Lisa J., we found is an excellent fit. Lisa is caring, knowledgeable about teaching & the school system, is expert at what she does as well as reliable.
Truly seems to care about her students
We did see Marilyn and she is lovely and very helpful. We will definitely use her services again as needed. Lauren has also seen Shannon S. for physics on a few occasions. I must say that Shannon is fabulous! She goes above and beyond. She follows up and is very accommodating as to lesson times. She is very kind and truly seems to care about her students.
My son had his first session with Yuliya H. after school today. She was on time and very professional. He will meet her every week to get help with Math 10 assignments. So far so good.
We worked with Sharon this year for Pre-Cal 12 tutoring. She was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with my son
A patient and passionate tutor!
We liked Noel the instant we met him! He put our son at ease with his kindness and patience, and within one session our son was happy to know that he would have help with Math 12 and Physics 12 every week for the school year. Noel has extensive knowledge, had a very interesting career that applied the use of math and physics in “real life”, and was good at explaining difficult concepts in a way that resonated. He obviously enjoys spending time helping young people succeed. We can’t say enough good things about Noel and highly recommend him!
She’s been incredibly helpful!
We requested help for our daughter for Math 10 and Janice R has been absolutely fantastic. Thank you for the recommendation. She’s been incredibly helpful!
I have been seeing Silviu Z. for the past couple of months. He has been great in helping me in Physics and Math. Whatever questions I had he was always able to answer. He was very easy to contact and does all he can to help the student. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of help in Physics or Math. My grades improved greatly with his help. Thank you Silviu for everything and I am very glad you were my tutor.
Wish I’d found you a year ago!
It was such a relief to find qualified people at a reasonable price. Wish I’d found you a year ago!
Sending my thanks to Edmond Z. He helped my daughter in Grade 11 Pre-Calculus Math. Her grades improved and he built her confidence. He came highly recommended by a friend whose son he also tutored. We both recommend him!
We had Thomas C. out today. It went really well. My son liked him.
Thank you for your service, it means the world to us
Just wanted to express our gratitude for Tommy the math tutor. My son thought he was great and he did an excellent job. Thank you for your service, it means the world to us
You have an excellent instructor on your team.
Dear TTS, I am writing in appreciation for the excellent instruction our daughter, Claire, received from Gloria. W. Gloria. was pleasant, upbeat, knowledgeable, always on time, and willing to meet with C. at any time to help her with math. C’s grades improved significantly with Gloria’s generous instruction and we are very grateful. You have an excellent instructor on your team.
Five Star Results
I am very pleased with my math tutor Eric C. He is terrific with teaching! I would recommend to anyone looking to get an A plus! Thank you tons! Very happy with how things went.
Great Math tutor!
Our daughter took Math 12 Pre-Calc online and wanted to finish it quickly. We hired Sharon to tutor her and she was amazing. Our daughter said she explained clearly and made the concepts understandable. I highly recommend TTS tutors!
Quick response and great list of referrals
Quick response and great list of referrals that live in my area that specialized in the subject that my child needed tutoring. Found someone 2 days after contacting the tutoring service. Highly recommend it.
We are very grateful. You have an excellent instructor on your team
I am writing in appreciation for the excellent instruction my son Jayden received from Vik in Calculus/Math. Vik’s methods were upbeat, knowledgeable, and my son never dreaded his sessions. He was very flexible with J’s intense athletic schedule and always on time and prepared. He kept on top of what J was studying on his own time and kept up to date with test dates, etc..J’s grades improved significantly and he finished with a B average which was way beyond his teacher’s expectations. We are very grateful. You have an excellent instructor on your team.
Jason Y. is a wonderful tutor!
There are not enough good words …
We are currently working with Silviu Z. from your company, for Math and there are not enough good words to express how much our son has improved and how grateful we are for all his help.
The first meeting went great and we scheduled Ken K. to come for regular one hour sessions where he tutors both PreCalculus 11 and Physics 11. Our daughter is very happy with how the first 3 sessions have gone and looks forward to continuing with Ken.
My daughter’s first session with Nadi T. went so well. She said that “for the first time Math made sense!”
Thank you so much for helping my daughter find the perfect tutor. We had Leon L. come to our house to help with Math and we couldn’t be happier. We will definitely continue seeing him for as long as she needs help.
Fast response from you and from Yuliya H. I have been impressed.
Thank you for the referral
We got a tutor from you for my daughter Tessa. Malcolm M. was so great and Tess really liked him. He is very flexible and she has found him very helpful. He has a good sense of humour, knows the material well and is very kind. My daughter really liked his style – thank you for the referral.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank your tutor Arthur H. for tutoring me in math and physics. I received a letter of acceptance into the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia – Vancouver campus! It took awhile to reach here, but I am very excited to start this journey.
We have met twice now with Maher M. and the sessions went very well & benefited my son.
Thank you so much.
Thank you Nadi T. so much for all of your help this month. Emmett said you are a great teacher – always clear instructions! Have a good summer & I hope we will see you in the fall for more tutoring.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Always happy to help.
We recommend him totally.
I have been tutored by Silviu Z. for over 3 years now. IB Math SL, Math 1171 (Calculus I at Langara College), Statistics 1124, and Physics 1118 were the courses that I was tutored in. With Silviu’s skill set in tutoring all level Math and Physics, I was given a very good service which allowed me to excel in these courses with good grades.
Nadi T. has been a fantastic tutor for our son this past year. She helped him to gain knowledge and understanding with math and also gain confidence with a subject he was struggling with. We are very grateful for all her help and expertise!
Silviu Z. prepared me
Mr. Silviu Z. prepared me for the Stat test at Langara. He covered everything in great detail and took the time to answer all my questions and concerns about the test. He made it easy to understand the content. Coming into the test, I wasn’t as nervous as I usually am because I knew that he prepared me very well.
Thank you. My son has been meeting Amirsalar H. Lovely young man and extremely reliable. Extremely impressed.
Teaching Mathematics Grade 11
Mr Matt A.is a responsible and patient tutor. I am very fast to understand what he explained. He also assign homework for me every week. I got the full marks the last quiz. Thank you Mr Matt.
Great Math Tutor for Grade 8 and 9 Math
Gary P. has been tutoring our son in Math for over a year now and we have seen significant results. He is incredibly kind and patient with our son and super encouraging as well. Our match with Gary was only due to TTS’ tremendous recommendations. I totally trust them for all tutoring needs.
John B has been very helpful and is very fun to work with. I feel more confident for tests and quizzes now. I would recommend his tutoring to everyone!
Patient and extremely helpful
I just wanted to extend our sincere thanks to Teachers’ Tutoring Service and specifically our daughter’s math tutor, Gurmeet S. Gurmeet was kind, patient and extremely helpful. Our daughter learned more from her in a few weeks than she had from her own math teacher over a full semester.
Thank you again.
We had Gerry M. over last Friday afternoon for our son’s first tutoring session. We were very impressed with how prepared and knowledgeable Gerry was with the Physics 11 & PreCalculus 11 material. Thank you for finding us the right fit for our needs!
The service was seamless and we have booked our first session for next week with Ray B.
Thank you for your help.
Justin had three sessions with Janice R. She was fabulous and just what he needed! He is writing his final exam now. May ask if she is available in the fall.
Excellent Math Tutor
Silviu was an excellent tutor who always came well prepared for our sessions. He is well organized and it is clear that he puts a lot of effort into prep time and lesson plans. I was able to improve my math skills very quickly and ended up with a good mark in the course
Best Math Tutor
My son Cristian was down to the crunch on a grade 11 pre-cal Math online course and got a referral for John M. I contribute much of his success in the course “A” to his tutoring. John was efficient, extremely thorough and was excellent in getting concepts across. Worth every $.
