Your Teacher: Martin Derige
Martin hails from the icy, sunshiny land of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he obtained a degree in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Manitoba. He has worked with students of all ages, from playing dodge ball in school gyms to peer tutoring sleep-deprived engineers. He teaches math, science, and chemistry, and lives for that “Aha! Eureka!” moment when the kids just get it. Martin has a healthy sense of curiosity and compassion about the world and is always seeking to connect with the cool people who are part of it, like his family and friends – and the staff and students at Brain Boost! He exercises his brain with music, gaming, visual art, design, and puzzles of all types, and exercises his body through adventures like climbing, running in the woods, and day-long hikes in the mountains. He can often be found eating spaghetti.
Your Teacher: Mark Senadjan
Mark is from the verdant Okanagan, a region of our province that churns out delicious fruit and clever brains. He initially moved to Vancouver to pursue his university education at the University of British Columbia, but he later found that Vancouver is where he belongs- so he stayed and called Vancouver his new home. Mark has been tutoring since he was in high school as he enjoys interacting with students and he wants to learn more about how they think. He believes that when teachers listen to their students’ perspectives, the learning goes both ways. In his spare time, Mark enjoys reading, listening to music and volunteering. A fun fact about Mark is that he has two first names and if you are curious to know, feel free to ask him whenever you bump into him at BrainBoost.
