IB and High School Tutor @ Mount Pleasant, Vancouver
Available for In-Person Small Group Tutoring, Private One-on-one Tutoring & Online Tutoring
My name is Olivia, the IB tutor. I am grateful to have found my true passion early on in life: empowering young students, amongst others, through tutoring. I love helping my students understand a little better each day and watch their confidence in themselves grow. I do that by fostering an environment where students feel safe to try new things, make mistakes and ultimately learn and excel.
Students typically seek help in catching up with class materials, improving grades, and taking up new challenges by going above and beyond what students learnt in school. Ample study materials, including personalized sample tests, worksheets, and assignments will be provided.
A little bit about myself:
I am a UBC Science Alumni, specializing in Chemistry, Life Sciences and Statistics. In addition, I graduated from the IB Diploma program with a total of 39 points. To date, I have been tutoring and helping my students for more than five years.
Being an alumni of the IB program, I have been in your shoes. I am well-versed in the program and have had ample experience in mentoring students in achieving the very best version of themselves.
For me, being able to witness a student's willingness to make mistakes and be vulnerable, is a privilege.
I believe that attaining knowledge is great, but increasing students' self-confidence along with encouraging students to try, are equally as important.
Students do not have to struggle with school anymore.
I've taught students from many schools and curriculum, amongst others:
- Stratford Hall, Vancouver
- Little Flower Academy, Vancouver

I am available for:
- Small Group Tutoring
- Private One-on-one Tutoring

- Students in the home-schooling programs
Small Group Tutoring is based on a maximum of 3 students per group. On average, there are 2 students per group session. Students are welcomed to join an existing group or bring their friends to be tutored together. Small group tutoring is held near the intersection of Broadway and Main, in the neighborhood of Mount Pleasant.
Private One-on-one Tutoring can be done at my place in Mount Pleasant or at your home.
More and more students are interested in Online Tutoring, as it can be done anywhere and anytime. All you need is a computer and a reliable internet connection. We will be using an online whiteboard for online tutoring. Students and I can upload images and/or files into the board and an audio or video call (Facetime or Skype) will be used. It's very simple, interactive and easy!
I also teach students in the home-schooling programs, typically in the morning and early afternoons. Inquire for details.
