Become a TDSB Math Tutor

Become a volunteer math tutor in a TDSB High School. Use your knowledge and skills to benefit students in high school. As a tutor, you can help students build upon their skills and realize their potential. Tutors work in partner schools to help teachers support learning in their classrooms. You get to choose which subject you will tutor, and we will provide you with the training you need to become a tutor.

This program is a collaboration between the TDSB, the Centre for Community Partnerships and the University of Toronto Mathematics Department.
