Taya

Founder and Tutor

My name is Taya and I am a grade 11 student at Glenlyon Norfolk School. I created School Helpers to support parents and students across Vancouver Island. Through School Helpers,  I want to provide students access to the help, enrichment, and drop-in support that they may need. Other than coordinating The School Helpers Organization, I am also happy to tutor math, science, and English. In my free time, I enjoy reading and spending time outdoors. We at School Helpers are looking forward to working with you!

Hopper

Tutor

My name is Hopper and I am in 11th grade at Glenlyon Norfolk School. I have been at GNS for 3 years now, but I have previously attended Monterey and St. Patrick's in Victoria. Before living here I grew up in Prince Rupert, a small rainy town in northern BC, and spent my summers in New York City with my family. I have a little French bulldog named Poppy and in my free time I love walking her and getting some reading done. I am also a figure skater, although my coordination in other sports is dismal at best! I am comfortable tutoring in any subject (with the exception of languages apart from English and French) but my favourites are English, math, and sciences.

Ian

Tutor

Hi everyone! My name's Ian and I'm a graduating student at Glenlyon Norfolk School this year. I started out as a tutor at Mount Douglas Secondary in Grade 10 before coming to GNS and founding the GNS Senior School Peer Tutoring Program. For the last 3 years, I've tutored many students from grades 6 to 12 in math, science (chemistry and physics), English, and French. Although the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme has taken up a lot of my time for the last little while, in what spare time I have left, I love to play soccer and field hockey, learn new skills, play piano, and read a good fantasy or adventure book.

Grace

Tutor

Hi! My name is Grace. I am currently in 11th grade at Glenlyon Norfolk School. My main interests include theater, music and literature. I enjoy working with kids and like to try my best to give back to the community. I am tutoring French, English, math and science. I have done French since preschool and have always had a deep love for languages. I have always enjoyed reading and writing and would like to use my skills in helping with English. Though I am a bit more of an arts orientated person, I also greatly enjoy science and math. I understand how difficult these subjects can be for some students and would like to help your child form a greater love of learning by giving them the extra help that they may need to succeed.

Zayne

Tutor

Hey everyone! My name is Zayne Khan and I’m currently in my final year of my undergraduate degree studying psychology. During my time as a university student, I’ve adapted several learning strategies, many of which are subsumed within research literature. I hope to be able to pass on these strategies to my future students. My philosophy as a prospective tutor will be to help me help you develop the skills necessary so that you no longer need my help. In my free time I enjoy engaging in self-development, playing the piano, singing, reading, writing, and playing with my dog. Teachable subjects: English 8-12, Social Sciences 8-12 , Science 8-9, and Biology 11-12. I look forward to working with you!
