Teaching is my hobby. I have over 15 years’ experience of teaching at different academic levels up to graduate school. I have a track record of helping students develop lifelong skills and confidence in math and science. I'm a patient tutor and I am very good at establishing rapport with my students and motivating them to be disciplined in their study habits. I view the tutor-student relationship as a partnership in which everyone has to do their part for the student to achieve outstanding progress in their grades. Having achieved the highest level of education possible, I make myself a role model for my students.

"Ovo is tutoring my son in Grade 12 Math and Physics. He started by asking him several questions and finding some common interests. He is demonstrating to my son how it is important to complete his assignments in order to be successful. Moreover, Ovo prepares for each tutoring session ahead of time so that no time is wasted during the session. Most importantly, he asks questions like "why do you think that is the correct answer?" so that my son has to explain and support his own reasoning and demonstrate his understanding of the material. Therefore, it is not only important that you get the right answer, but it is more important that you understand WHY that is the right answer, and HOW you came to that conclusion. Ovo also gives him a great deal of encouragement and positive reinforcement. His approach builds my son's confidence, and by teaching my son to "learn how to learn," we are confident that my son's exam results will improve throughout the semester."
"We would highly recommend Ovo he is so well prepared .He really takes the time to make the student understand the math .He will make your son / daughter feel more confident in their own ability to succeed in math . One of the best tutors you will have . "
"Ovo is a fantastic tutor. Before even meeting my son, he asked many pertinent questions to get us off for a great start. He helped my son set study goals, not just for the tutoring subject (math 30-1) but all his school subjects, balanced with his extra curricular activities. Ovo is amazingly well prepared, very encouraging and provides much needed constructive criticism. He provided many additional and helpful resources. My only regret is I did not find him 2 years ago!"
