About Me

Hi! My name is Rob Burchett and I've been tutoring mathematics, chemistry and physics face-to-face in York Region for ten years.

I Graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science Engineering in 1998.

Getting much satisfaction from teaching, I am now pursuing a teaching career. I worked for two years for Oxford Learning in Newmarket, Ontario.

While working there I discovered I have a natural talent for teaching math and science from grades 6 to 11.

I've instructed students at the elementary and secondary levels. As well I've had success teaching adult students, graduating from Seneca college with a certificate in adult education. Below are some useful links:

About My Service

Starting my service as an online system to tutor calculus-hence the name "Calc"tutor, it has changed over the years. Graduating from university quite a while ago, I retaught myself the high school curriculum in math and science and then volunteered as a tutor for a while before doing it as paid work.

I have worked for a few tutoring companies including two years at Oxford Learning and one year at Grade Learning.

I took on the challenge of starting my own company and have grown over the years into the best service I could be.

My blog, in the news and updates tag, shows how my business has grown and the success I have had with many students.

I also use my blog to enter work on some mathematics I invented. I get some help with this from time to time from a Professor from the University of Chicago.

I also use my weblog to post artwork. These are sketches of famous people or ordinary people I have taken from photographs or drawn from real life.

I also post some creative writing. These are selected journal entries in which I use a form of writing which I invented and find helpful for self-improvement. I have used this form of writing to help myself and I feel it could be helpful for others to read as the writings can be applied generally.

I write on subjects such as strength, character, growth, imagination and organization.

My experience has taught me that face-to-face instruction in the correct environment is the most effective, stimulating and satisfying teaching and learning experience. I tutor in a library setting or at your home.

Realizing current technology could enable online tutoring, I use interactive online methods and have experienced great success complementing face-to-face instruction with online instruction. Face-to-face and online I have instructed over fifty students

How to get started

Usually parents of elementary or secondary school students or adult learners will contact me by phone or email. We will work out a time and place for a first meeting.

Meeting at a library which is close to both of us is preferred. I have a car but would prefer to meet somewhere in York region. At that time I will give you my cell phone number so that you can contact me anytime.

Price is discussed. I have listed what I usually charge in the pricing tab. I would like to know what the student is currently studying and if there are any tests coming up in the near future. I will try to see you as soon as possible.

Any further information I can provide at this time such as references from parents, students, etc., I will be happy to provide.

Plans are all worked out on an individual basis in consideration of the curriculum and immediate student needs.
