My Math Tutor
When my daughter got 48 % on her first Math 12 test, we decided to
get a private tutor. Anita is a good student but keeping up with the pace of Math
in a semester system has always been hard work for her. . . After just six 1:1 lessons
with Del, my daughter got 71 % on her last test! Del's method of filling in the missing
pieces while introducing new concepts and teaching Anita in advance of the classroom
teacher is working very well for my daughter. Rather than trying to catch up with the
class, Anita is working ahead of her class - and because Anita doesn't feel "lost" in class,
she's enjoying and learning more during class ... Del's approach to teaching and
her positive, supportive manner has done wonders to boost Anita's confidence."

"Dear Ms. Shokar,
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your
extraordinary effort as Jason's Grade 7 teacher. Your
dedication and commitment as an educator is truly
appreciated, and we are delighted at Jason's
progress - a testimony to your positive, caring manner,
and the work ethics you instill in the classroom."

" ... Thank you for everything ... the daily lessons all summer to "fill the gaps" really helped Edric build a stronger foundation and by working ahead on Math 6, he got a solid head start for September .... Thank you so much for all your help ... he no longer needs extra support in school this year! ... we will definitely be in touch again in June..."

"Del has been teaching our son since October. At that time, Chris had 38% in Math 8. Now, after six months, his mark borders between an A and B, at 84%.
We are relieved Chris understands Del's way of teaching and explaining things. He likes her hands-on approach and all the different ways of explaining help him very much to understand clearly. The way of teaching and learning now is very different from when we went to school.
Both my son and Del work very hard together. My wife and I are
very happy with the result !"

"As a parent, I am so very thankful we found Ms. Shokar to teach Jasleen as this has taken a great deal of worry and pressure off me. I am not familiar with on-line courses but with Ms. Shokar's guidance, Jasleen has learned an approach for learning and studying Math that really works for her ... Jasleen is much more confident in her abilities, her marks continue to improve . . . she is also more willing to try solving word problems and is much less anxious about tests. Jasleen is starting to actually like Math! ~ Aman M., Burnaby, BC

Del has been a God-send in our family ... she has helped our daughter immensely with paramount "catch-up" and the experience was nothing but fabulous! Very professional and worth EVERY PENNY ...Thank you Del, at exam-time we'll come again for a quick review ~ you're the BEST and thanks for the extremely thoughtful and heartfelt "follow-up" text.

"The best thing about Del is that I have her undivided attention during tutoring. I can ask as many questions as I need to until it makes sense..."~Sam, Math 10 Student

"There are hundreds of learning centers and individual tutors out there that provide tutoring - but very few focus on 100% one-on-one personalized teaching ... you are definitely among those few, Del ! Both my children really look forward to tutoring classes with you! Thank you for your support and encouragement! ~ Stacey M
"A tutor who really cares about the students, provides great feedback, and is always accommodating and pleasant."
"Del has been teaching my daughter for 12 months, whose Maths GPA has increased by over 22% ! Del has an amazing way of simplifying and explaining math concepts in real, everyday terms."

Del is a reliable and understanding tutor. She knows how to teach and explain concepts clearly, step-by-step so I actually learn and can do my homework myself !
