Math and Physics can seem daunting to many students, but real gains can be made with the right type of instruction and guidance. Marc Lambert (Math) and Kyle Brown (Math and Physics) are proven Alberta teachers who take a conceptual and visual approach to helping students build understanding, and then apply that knowledge to become better problem-solvers.They take the time to get to know and understand their students, and then customize a learning plan with relevant, curriculum-aligned practice materials that only experienced classroom teachers can provide.
The "PLUS", in Online Tutoring Plus, refers to the wealth of extra learning support and services that RTD offers, beyond the scope of discount tutoring services offered by non-teachers. RTD Online Tutoring Plus students will benefit from:
Access to an extensive collection of learning materials, which can be utilized before, after, and during tutoring sessions.Click here for a sample for Math 20-1.
Customized learning content based on specific needs.
Connection to a community of students across the province, who are studying the same course and can post questions and comments that either instructors or students themselves can answer.
Note: Tutoring in Math 10C, 20-1, 20-2, 30-1, 30-2, or 31 is available in any session, Math 9, 10-3, 20-3, as well as Physics 20 or 30 are also available in sessions led by Kyle

The RTD Tutoring Plus program is designed to connect Alberta (or other jurisdiction) students with certified experienced teachers. Learning is further supported with access to comprehensive notes, videos, and practice materials we have designed for most high school math and physics courses.
Cost for a 65 minute online session is $80 for one-on-one, with lower cost options for “shared” sessions with two or three students.
We’ll align students such that they will only share a session with other students taking the same course and requiring tutoring in the same topics. These topics are set by the first student who joins by signing up for an OPEN session. At that time we’ll list the course and topics they indicated on the calendar, and mark it SHARED.
For example, on the calendar dates shown below there is a shared session being offered (one or two other students already signed up, topics are set) and an open session. (no one has yet signed up)
Click on any shared session to see what course / topics the session will be focused on. If it’s a match, you can also sign up and the cost will be reduced for all students involved.
Tutoring Session Costs: $80 (one-on-one), $47 (two students), $36 (three students)
