Building confidence and achieving immediate results

We are a team of experienced tutors who care about your child’s academic performance. We create a welcoming learning environment so that your child will succeed in school and develop a greater level of motivation and confidence.

Hi, I’m Heidi and I’m the founder of Heidi the Tutor. I started this organization in 2019 and it has come clear to me that I truly enjoy teaching students math and science, helping them understand complex concepts in an easier way, and boosting their enthusiasm and confidence in math and science. I have taught over 100 students since 2019, many of whom stayed with me for all three years of high school. Hearing my students telling me that I just made a concept “easy” is the reason that I love what I do.

I am a passionate tutor ready to guide my students through their courses, explaining concepts in ways different from a traditional classroom setting and oftentimes easier to understand. I take time to understand my student’s questions and tailor my approach to his/her needs. Tutoring sessions with me are interactive and engaging, as I encourage students to work through problems on their own. As a result, my students now go into class with more confidence and enthusiasm, and often see a significant improvement in their grades.

Since 2019, my team has grown, and we now offer tutoring in English as well as Social Studies, for all grades. We are available for in-person tutoring in the Calgary region, as well as online tutoring. We are available weekday mornings, afternoons and evenings, as well as weekends. Please get in touch to see how we can make a difference in your child’s academic pursuits.

Diploma Exam Preparation

Are you preparing for a diploma exam? We understand the importance of these exams and the impact they can have on your future. That’s why we offer comprehensive preparation sessions for several of the most common diploma exams, including Math 30-1, Math 30-2, Chemistry 30, and English-Language Arts 30-1.

Our preparation sessions are held in small groups, with a maximum of 5 students, to ensure that all questions are answered and everyone feels comfortable participating. Each session is 7 hours long, split into two convenient sessions, and is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the material covered on the exams. During the sessions, we will go through past diploma exams, providing detailed explanations and guidance, and also welcome questions from our students.

Our small-group setting creates an intimate and supportive environment where students can feel comfortable asking questions and participating in the review process. Our experienced tutors are knowledgeable and passionate about teaching, and they are dedicated to helping students succeed on their diploma exams.

They will manage ideas and information, enhance the clarity and artistry of their communication, and learn to support and collaborate with others.
