Designed to help students transition from one-one-one sessions to independent learning, Learning Lounge teaches executive functioning and independence by giving students manageable responsibilities that increase with their growing abilities. Working with a 4-1 student-teacher ratio, students work to complete assignments from their tutoring sessions
Your Teachers Taylor & Nolan
Taylor will show you why the pen is mightier than the sword! She has both a Bachelor of Arts from Simon Fraser University and an Associate of Arts Degree from Capilano University, where she focused on English and Creative Writing. Taylor found her passion for education while at Simon Fraser and since, has been working with students from all walks of life to gain more insight and knowledge. Aside from helping her friends, family, and classmates with their papers and studying, Taylor has been tutoring students with ADHD in a variety of subjects, focusing on organization and time management. The Writer’s Exchange is where she is able to let out all of her wacky energy volunteering with some fun kids doing fun stuff. At BrainBoost she tutors several subjects, including her specialty in English from K-12. She believes in creativity and the art of problem solving, and uses both of those in her practice to help students feel empowered and independent in their work. When she isn’t trying to find new and exciting ways to help her students, she is hiking with her Pug, Franklin, writing a novel, baking too many sweets, and teaching herself a new trade.
Born and raised in the Lower Mainland, Nolan is a BC certified teacher, holding a degree in Psychology & Linguistics, as well as Education. At BrainBoost, Nolan tutors a variety of subjects from the elementary to secondary level, with a focus on math, biology and chemistry. Nolan teaches in a way that gives students the power to create their own learning moments and strives to foster confidence and critical thinking within a safe environment. When not tutoring, Nolan is often found with one or more cameras in hand, creating distinct portraits or filming comedy sketches. Nolan’s interests also include music (guitar, bass, ukulele), long-form improv, painting, printmaking and tacos.
