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:
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.Marta
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.Normela
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.Hugh Rothe,
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.Steve
We worked with Sharon this year for Pre-Cal 12 tutoring. She was absolutely wonderful and very helpful with my son
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.
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.
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.
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 $.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Hi, We’ve used Janice R. a couple of times. She is awesome…my daughter really likes her. Thanks!
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.
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!
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.
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
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!!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
