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

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.
