OUR STORY

About Us

  • Remote learning has been a struggle for many students during the pandemic 
  • More parents are taking on the role of teaching their own children, but are finding more resistance
  • Fewer investments are going into public education from our government
  • More students than ever are failing to keep up and are falling behind
  • There is a shortage of qualified math educators in schools today

We are here to help.  At Math Doctor, our team of STEM educators come to your home on a day and time that works best for you. Your child will be coached and mentored by a chosen private tutor who genuinely cares. 

Many of us have been teaching online prior to the pandemic, using a collaborative whiteboard to lead an engaging tutorial session.  Backed by an extensive collection of Ontario-aligned instructional resources, our goal is to create a space for young people to fall in love with math and science.  We are confident the results will follow.

Our TEAM

Tim

Founder and Director of Education

Vision: To change the way young people look at math and science.  We do this by being interactive and using engaging activities to help make math and science fun.  We firmly believe that if kids enjoy it, they will naturally want to spend more time on it.  Repetition will build speed, confidence, and better grades! 

Sophie (Team Lead)

Sophie is a Math and Business Double Degree student at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University. With years of experience working with kids as a math tutor and rhythmic gymnastics coach, she loves passing on her knowledge to help students reach their full potential. Able to teach Grades 2 to 12 in English or French, she tailors her sessions to best suit the needs of her students. She strives to make math more enjoyable and help students develop a love for learning. Sophie was also a rhythmic gymnast and won a gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Carra

My name is Carra and I am a student at the University of Toronto, majoring in Finance and Data Science. My goal is to help students achieve their academic best, whether that be at the elementary, middle, or high school level. By personalizing each teaching style, I hope to enhance mathematical, logical, and critical-thinking skills for my students in a supportive learning environment. I want to create confidence and success in my students, empowering them to utilize those skills for the future!

Chris

Hi, my name is Chris and I’m currently studying Life Sciences at Queen’s University. My education has given me a strong and extensive knowledge of the sciences, namely biology and chemistry, as well as calculus. When working with students, my teaching style is very adaptable depending on what the student responds best to, but I typically begin by guiding the student through some examples before giving them the chance to try it for themselves. Along the way, I also teach students powerful tips and tricks that I’ve learned over the years. In my free time, I’m an avid musician and have played guitar and bass for nearly a decade!

Claudia

Hi!  This is Claudia and I recently graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering.  I have experience working with elementary and high school students on math and science.  I believe in tailoring my teaching style to meet the unique needs of each student.  I use a variety of teaching methods, including real-world examples and interactive exercises.  With my guidance, you’ll not only solve equations but also embrace them with enthusiasm.  I’m here to help!

Marco

My name is Marco, and I am proud to be a tutor here at Math Doctor!  I’m from Toronto, received a Honours Bachelor of Science with a Specialization in Data Science from the University of Toronto. This will be my fifth year teaching math topics from Grade 3 to Grade 12. I’m grateful to help every student achieve their academic goals and create a positive learning environment!

Quentin

I’m a biomedical and electrical engineering graduate student at Toronto Metropolitan University, with experience tutoring elementary, middle, and high-school age children.  I’m also employed by the university as a teaching assistant for radiation therapy devices and general circuitry courses, in addition to my thesis work on implantable medical devices.  My biggest hobbies are in outdoor adventure – canoe trips, hiking and winter camping.  I look forward to meeting you and your child!
