KEANU

CEO

Hey! I’m Keanu, founder of TPT. As an experienced teacher and tutor, I believe in taking a holistic approach to tutoring in order to facilitate the development of a Growth Mindset, as the only constant each year is the student themselves. This means teaching students to love and be efficient in their learning by helping them to master essential skills, as well as, develop their mathematical intuition to create a foundation from which they can build upon. My unwavering belief that all students have the potential to be successful leaves no student behind. Aside from teaching, my other passions include playing sports (especially soccer, volleyball and rugby) and board games!

ALEXANDER

Physics Tutor Grades 11-12 | Math 1-12

Hi, my name is Alexander but you can call me Alex. I am an Ontario Certified Teacher with qualifications in mathematics, science, and physics. My goal as a teacher is to develop life-long learners through the acquisition of transferable skills such as critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving to ensure their future success. As changing career trends occur life-long learners are able to adapt by leveraging transferable skills to apply them within new settings for future success. As a teacher I also believe in taking a student-centered and collaborative approach which comes out in my teaching as a series of questions to activate student learning. This realizes my goal as students activate life-long learning skills which allows them to learn concepts more deeply as they actively learn.

When I am not teaching, I frequently enjoy watching math videos that explain concepts visually or through an alternative viewpoint. I also enjoy playing video games and learning how they are developed!
