About PG Tutors
We are a community of creative, knowledgeable, and flexible educators, who provide personalized and individualized tutoring sessions that fit the needs of your learner. We offer homework support, concept development, and test preparation to help students excel in math and sciences.
Who We Are
PG Tutors is led by two BC certified teachers with experiences in education from across the world. Founded in 2021, PG Tutors was built on two visionary pillars:
- Providing students with an atmosphere of comfortable and safe learning so that we help build happy and successful students who are confident in their skills.
- Providing professional and developing experts opportunities to express their passion for science and education in a way that builds the community.
PG Tutors require masks be worn for all students and tutors during tutoring sessions if they take place at home, in keeping with the provincial mandate. Online tutoring via Zoom will also be available.
