Tutors by Subject

Jakob Thoms
4th year Mathematics Student

Experience: 12-24 months

Tutoring Background and Qualifications:

I am currently pursuing an honours degree in pure mathematics and have maintained a 97% cumulative average in my full-time studies. In addition to mathematics courses I have studied statistics, data science, computer science, physics, and economics.

I received the “2nd Year Data Science/Statistics Award” and was the runner up for the “2nd Year Mathematics Award.” More recently I received the “Upper-Level Mathematics Award” at the end of my third year of studies.

About yourself:

I have been working as a teaching assistant at UBCO for two years now. I started as a physics lab TA in my second year, and then switched to teaching statistics tutorials during my third year. Now I’m heading into my fourth year and I’m excited to say that I finally got a position teaching math tutorials! (which is what I would have preferred from the start.) Although I do not yet have experience with 1-on-1 private tutoring, I have helped students with questions during TA office hours.

Tyson Cuylle
4th year Applied Mathematics Student

Experience: 12-24 months

Tutoring Background and Qualifications:

Hi there, I am currently in my 4th year of an applied mathematics major with a biology minor. I have achieved Dean’s list many times throughout my time in university along with extracurriculars and being a review coordinator for various subjects. Additionally, I have also studied statistics, biology, chemistry, and biochemistry so feel free to reach out to me for any of such disciplines! Though, mathematics are what I do the most so I’m more focused in those subjects, so again feel free to contact me if you would like tutoring for a course in math!

Some of my achievements would be achieving deans list and getting the BC Association of Healthcare Auxillaries award for being dedicated to volunteering at KGH.

About yourself:

In my third year, I began the position of Student Learning (SL) Leader where I would hold various review sessions for subjects such as Math 100, Biol 125, and Chem 213. As a SL leader, I would coordinate and facilitate review sessions with prepared material for students to work through (this would include in some cases 1 on 1 help).  I am also the QSCU mathematics representative, holding review sessions for math 100, making Final Exam prep material for Math 101, and coordinating workshops such as the Covid Mathematical Modeling workshop by presentors Dr. Rebecca Tyson and Dr. Dean Karlen, and the LaTeX workshop facilitated by myself and Gillian (Physics Representative of QSCU). Lastly, I would like to point out that I balance school and extracurriculars with working out, jogging, hiking, and a little bit of strategic gaming, which goes to show that it is really important for everyone to set some time aside for yourself!
