Debbie Le

Debbie is an Edmontonian-turned-Vancouverite studying chemistry at UBC. After completing her undergraduate degree in chemistry and biology, Debbie enrolled in the PhD program to research Supramolecular Chemistry (basically molecular Lego). Debbie tutors math as well as the sciences, and one of her favourite things to do is to bring science into everyday life. Did you know that the colour of hydrangea flowers can tell you about the acidity of your soil? When not teaching or in school, Debbie can be found sewing, baking, learning the ukulele, or most likely hugging her cat.

Aksel Smit

Aksel is an interdisciplinary teacher with an academic background in science, and a personal background in health and wellness. He studied biomedical physiology and kinesiology at SFU, completing an honour’s degree with research on the management of knee arthritis using wearable technology. During his time at SFU, he worked in a variety of teaching positions in the context of swimming lessons, summer camps, lifesaving courses and peer tutoring. He recently finished a five month stretch of work as a surf instructor in Tofino, spending the summer surfing and playing lots of music, and upon returning to Vancouver he pursued a teaching position at Brainboost that combines his knowledge in maths and sciences with his passion for teaching in all forms. Aksel’s teaching approach is highly collaborative, fostering independent-thought and creativity with an overall sense of safety. As a study space teacher, he enjoys authentic engagement with the students as a support for their learning journeys.
