Taya

Founder and Tutor

My name is Taya and I am a grade 11 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!

Angelina

Director of Communications and Tutor

​Hi - I’m Angelina and I’m in Grade 11 at Glenlyon Norfolk School. I’ve tutored English through School Helpers, which I’ve greatly enjoyed, though I’m also happy to help with social studies and science. I believe there is always a way to make learning fun. I love reading and writing, which inspired me to work and volunteer at my local library. I am also interested in music, movies, art and sports. I love animals and enjoy spending time with my American Cocker Spaniel, Bella. I’m passionate about helping others, and am excited to make a positive impact as the Director of Communications. I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Hi! My name is Grace. I am currently in 11th 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.

Zayne

Tutor

Hey everyone! My name is Zayne Khan and I’m currently in my final year of my undergraduate degree studying psychology. During my time as a university student, I’ve adapted several learning strategies, many of which are subsumed within research literature. I hope to be able to pass on these strategies to my future students. My philosophy as a prospective tutor will be to help me help you develop the skills necessary so that you no longer need my help. In my free time I enjoy engaging in self-development, playing the piano, singing, reading, writing, and playing with my dog. Teachable subjects: English 8-12, Social Sciences 8-12 , Science 8-9, and Biology 11-12. I look forward to working with you!
