Mark Van Eijk

Mark grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver to pursue an education in science and healthcare. Since then he has obtained a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from UBC and completed his training and licensure as a Primary Care Paramedic. Mark has been involved in teaching a variety of subjects (from science to snowboarding) since high school and now teaches math and sciences at BrainBoost in the hopes of instilling his own enthusiasm for learning in his students. He also has a wide range of experience in working with people with disabilities through the UBC Hospital Foundation, Supported Child Development BC, and as an extra support worker at a local childcare program. When he is not busy teaching and learning, Mark enjoys long-distance running, swimming, and biking, as well as cooking and listening to and playing music.
