PHILOSOPHY OF TUTORING
A different approach to getting smarter. Scroll through our philosophies and see if you fit in.
Don’t see your subject? Not all subjects are listed; perhaps we can still help. Contact us to confirm whether or not we offer it.
STUDY AT BASE
Smarter Montreal is located in Pointe-Claire. Consultations, tutoring, and testing happens here. If you’re dropping someone off, we have space for you to wait for the duration or their session, as well as a shopping centre next door. Feel free to drop-in and see the space (by appointment only).
We encourage students to come to our study space, where we provide an environment that fosters good work habits. However, we have a limited availability to do house-calls for students who cannot travel. Get in contact with Smarter Montreal to see your options.
START UPSmarter Montreal started with one tutor. In 2015, Lauren Fagen launched Genesis Tutoring as a team. Rebranding to Smarter Montreal in 2019, we continue to be team of sincere, talented and relatable tutors.
FOUNDERLauren Fagen has been tutoring for nearly 10 years. She graduated from Concordia University in 2018 with distinction, where she received a BA in Honours Philosophy of Logic, and a minor in Mathematics. She also received an Honours DEC in Liberal Arts from John Abbott College.
Lauren did not like school. Her experiences eventually gave her invaluble wisdom about how to survive, succeed, and find growth. She lives to bring others to that same finish line.
