Hello!

My name is Sylvie, an enthusiastic private tutor for over 5 years with math as my first language and chemistry as my second. I found my purpose in life and that is "paying it forward" to our community through education by instilling grit with a growth mindset. I emphasize the importance of learning the fundamentals (more on concepts and less on memorizing equations) as it is essential for applications on advanced topics. The highlight of my teaching style is being flexible by providing a variety of skills of analyzing, approaching, and double-checking a problem.

Since the start of the pandemic, I have witnessed the loss of learning which greatly hinders many students of being able to move forward in math because it requires prior knowledge. When I work with my students, I recognize these gaps in learning so I provide personalized, supplemental work that will help them tremendously to move forward. Being personable is one of my core values as a tutor to support each student not only in their academics such as planning, study habits, and learning but for their mental well-being as well.

I hope to achieve with my students by bringing in creativity with solid foundations to become efficient problem solvers. I absolutely love learning, and I hope to bring the joy of learning to my students. I can't wait to be a part of their academic success!

Knowledgeable tutor

Excellent tutor! My daughter was struggling with her math. Sylvia responded to my late night message asking her to help the following day. My daughter said Sylvia was knowledgeable and helpful. She went into her test with confidence. Thank you!

Enthusiastic and Knowledgeable!

After taking along break from science, Sylvie completely helped me work through all my confusion and I finally feel confident in completing my work. I absolutely recommend her to anyone who may need help in chemistry. My class was mainly for nursing and health field students. Again the best tutor session I've ever had!
