I graduated from Brock University with an undergraduate degree in Child and Youth Studies with Honours in 2014, and completed my Bachelor of Education for the Primary/ Junior division at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in 2015. Throughout my teaching experience I have been lucky to work with students of varying abilities. My teaching related experiences include: volunteering for the Halton District School Board for their Leveled Literacy Program working with struggling readers providing them with skills and strategies allowing them to reach their grade level reading. During my undergrad I volunteered at Brock University’s Reading Clinic creating literacy based activities and providing instruction strategies for reading to my client. I currently work for John Knox Christian School in Brampton as well as at Resurrection Christian Academy in Guelph as a Supply teacher. I previously worked for Durham District School Board on their Emergency supply list and for 4 years I worked as an Early Childcare Assistant at Bowmore Child Enrichment Centre in Toronto working with children 2- 6 years of age. Working with children is my greatest passion in life and I am so excited to continue to meet new students and make new relationships with my clients through Beyond the Classroom tutoring company.

I graduated from Bishop’s University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Art degree in International Studies and a minor in French. I completed her Bachelor of Education for the primary/junior divisions, and will be graduating from Nipissing University in June, 2017. 

Through volunteering with leadership conferences, working at summer camps, and volunteering in the classroom, I have experience working with pre-school children to high school students. What I love most about teaching is witnessing students reach their ‘a-ha’ moment. Working as a tutor with Beyond the Classroom, I am looking forward to meeting new students and helping them reach their goals!

Hi! I’m an Ontario Certified Teacher with my Special Education qualification. I have my Masters in English literature, and specialize in high school English tutoring. I am also qualified to teach Social Science and am available for tutoring in that area as well as History. I have a great sense of humour and am great at building rapport with even quiet students. I am particularly passionate about working with students struggling with anxiety/depression.

In my spare time, I love vegetarian cooking, calligraphy, reading, and animals (so pets in the home are no problem for me). I have experience as a private school senior English teacher, as well as experience tutoring for the SATs and for English classes, and experience as a university-level Teaching Assistant. My goal is to make curriculum seem relevant for students- yes, even Shakespeare! – and to help them boost their academic success and overall confidence in learning.


Hi, my name is Abdul. I have a bachelor degree in Mathematics. I started tutoring in Pakistan when I finished my Graduation degree. I was a Math and Science teacher in Pakistan. I speak three different languages fluently (Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi). I am qualified to teach different subjects such as: Mathematics, Data Management, Chemistry, Physics, Calculus, Advance Functions, Statistics, College and University Mathematics and Computer Science. I completed my Educational Assistant diploma from Conestoga College in December 2015. Currently, I work with students with special needs. I am currently an Educational Assistant with Upper Grand District School Board. I work part time for Tim Horton’s as an Assistant Manager. I enjoy playing cricket, cooking and spend time with my family. Everyone learns in a different way so I always try to find what methods or strategy works best for each and every student.
