Allow ourselves to introduce, ourslves.

We're Tall Guy Tutoring and we teach math really, really, REALLY well.

There's something I want to tell all my current and potential students. It's not a joke and it's a secret that's been kept from most of you throughout elementary and high school. The unfortunate thing is that it's the MOST IMPORTANT lesson you can learn, and most of you don't know it yet, WHICH IS CRAZY TO ME. In fact, I truly believe that MY ONLY REAL JOB, as a teacher, is to convince my students of this baffling secret. What is this crazy secret?

You can learn anything.

That's the most important thing you, or any student, can learn. It's simple but it's true, and it's important that both teacher and student believe, with 100% confidence, that this is the ultimate and final destination of an education. No education is complete with out unwavering support of this ideal.

You might be interested in how this is taken into consideration when I, or one of my tutors, teaches a student. It's again very simple:

  1. We practice the skill of believing in our students. All students. Students of any level. We are so good at believing in students that we believe that our failing students can all get an A+, and THAT'S HOW WE TEACH. We teach to win, not to avoid losing. If you find out that a teacher doesn't believe in you or your child, RUN. The education you will receive will be FAR WORSE THAN NOTHING. I'm not exaggerating.
  2. Any frustrations we have with tough, unmotivated and failing students we take as lessons for how we can improve. Since it's true that all our incredibly smart students can learn anything, IT MUST BE A DEFICIENCY IN OUR TEACHING, and we take it as personal challenges to improve. We will never give up. Ask yourself, "Do your current high school or elementary school teacher blame the student or themselves when there is a problem?" We all know the easy road is to blame the student.

Have you ever wondered how there can be university professors and high school teachers who REALLY SUCK AT TEACHING? It's because a good teacher is only about 20% subject mastery and 80% teaching skill. So why not go with someone or a team who has both, and practices both?

Hey guys, I’m Sheldon. I’m a math teacher. Total nerd. Not really any other way to put it. See my Google reviews. I've been teaching for a long time. Actually, I've been teaching since I was in high school. I love teaching, and I’m really good at it. I have the mentality that I can teach anyone the things they need to learn.

I've completed my masters degree from the University of Waterloo, where I was a TA for university algebra and calculus courses. I've run my tutoring business since 2010. I have a YouTube channel, I've written a book about tutoring, and I write math articles on my spare time. I've recently taught 6 undergraduate math courses at the University of British Columbia.

Tutoring and teaching eager students is my life's work. You, the student, are my complete focus. This is deluxe teaching, and it's second to none.

I have over 10,000 hours behind me in hundreds of courses, with hundreds of students. In that time, I noticed that a lot of kids were moving through the grades without having mastery over the material and without having built strong study habits and confidence. How can students then go on to have confidence learning things that are even more complex?

Here's a short video introduction.


The most important elements we teach are confidence and curiosity. Our teaching style is designed so that no matter what, each of our students will possess these incredibly powerful qualities. Confidence is built through practicing and working through hundreds of practice exercises. Curiosity is built by taking all the time it takes to demonstrate to the students that the crazy world of math actually makes sense, as opposed to giving them a list of formulas to memorize.

The classroom style of learning is so out of date it’s not even funny.

Most grades increase by 20%

After all, this is what you're paying for, right?

We've had students' grades go from 30% to 80%, and from 50% to A+. No kidding. You can do it, and we can help. Let's rock those grades!

I have tutored hundreds of course variations

And hundreds of students. Yeesh that's a lot of math.

Why is that girl so mad about us being geeks? She should chill out! Anyway, I've tutored courses from tons of local colleges and universities, as well as tons of the surrounding high schools and elementary schools.

50% of our business is from return customers

Another 30% is through referrals

The only thing I love more than math is teaching it. I think most of our students pick up on that pretty quick.

Sheldon, TGT founder, is really, really tall

Or your money back

Yup, I'm actually super tall. Sometimes I lose my students in the classroom because I'm so much taller than them. But I almost always find them again. Almost.

sweet, can I sign up already?

KNOWLEDGE IS USELESS WITHOUT CONFIDENCE

GROWTH IS IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT CURIOSITY

You can learn anything.
