Founder and Tutor
My name is Taya and I am a grade 10 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!
My name is Hopper and I am in 10th 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.
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.
Hi! My name is Grace. I am currently in 10th 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.

Hey everyone! My name is Ken and I am a Gr.11 student at Lambrick Park High in Saanich. I've spent a couple of years in West Vancouver and Tokyo as a kid and am fluent in Japanese. I can also speak a bit of Mandarin and French. My hobbies include golfing, watching anime, and playing the piano.
