Ewa (Eva) Kasinska is an enthusiastic and devoted (Ontario Certified) Teacher, in the area of Intermediate and Senior Mathematics. She believes that combining humour, patience and passion for math with high expectations leads to wonderful results.

After over 20 years of active classroom experience and 5 years as vice-principal and principal of a private school, she is now focusing on private tutoring and study coaching as well as public speaking to promote numeracy. Having spent years sharing her passion for the subject, she impacted generations of students,  many of whom shone in math competitions, while others were proud to have overcome their math phobias.

Her  genuine love of the subject allows her to broaden each topic with historical connections, anecdotes, real-life applications and enrichment opportunities.. Receptive to general attitudes–the anxiety and apprehension many feel towards mathematics–she is committed to positively impacting the community and improving children’s and adults’ numeracy skills.
