Hands down best tutor around. Jag has made pre-calculus 12 into a not so daunting course. His notes and methods of teaching are extremely efficient and easy to understand, and it has helped me from being a 70% student to an 86%. He motivates all his students to get the best mark they can get and encourages them to keep trying their best.

Jag is an excellent tutor and has his own way of teaching certain concepts that helps you remember them. He covers every chapter that everyone is on and for the people who are on different chapters, it puts them ahead. The class has a comfortable atmosphere and doesn’t make you feel left out. I would 100% recommend this place.

Jag is the best tutor I have gone to. He teaches the subjects really well and repeats lessons to make sure we have a very good understanding of the concept. I was able to tackle harder questions because Jag boosted my confidence from his teaching since he covers all types of questions and helps us learn the key concepts very well. The atmosphere in the class is relaxing and fun so there’s no pressure in learning key concepts. I really recommend going to OOTB Tutoring if your tackling grade 12 courses such as Pre Calculus 12, Chemistry 12 and Physics 12.

I joined OOTB Tutoring as I wanted a 90%+ average to get into university. I started off with 78% in Pre-Calculus but thanks to Jag I was able to finish with 96%. Jag is a great mentor and always kept motivating me to push my limits. Thanks for all your help!

I had a great time here! Ootb has tremendously helped me for Pre calculus 12, math being one of my weakest subjects. I couldn't ask for a better tutor. The results were remarkable. In November 2016 I started getting tutored at ootb. My mark was 52%. The semester has now ended. In just 3 months, I went to 80%. Definitely worth it. In reality, I enjoy math now. I recommend ootb!

I started going to Jag for Pre-Calculus 12 and started to wish I came to him earlier. All the big and small methods and tricks he teaches you make learning so much easier. The class environment is also great, so I highly recommend Jag!

I'm a year ahead In math and I wasnt doing very well in pre-calc 11. As soon as I started going to ootb my grades picked up and I began understanding the concepts so much better and quicker and I ended up completing the class with a grade higher than I expected. Jag was really helpful and his notes were clear and easy to understand. If I ever had any questions about anything I could always ask jag and he would have the answer. Totally recommend going to ootb.
