Our tutors foster a caring, encouraging environment that helps kids thrive and learn! Read below to learn more about our talented team:


Kate Murray, Owner

Kate is an experienced educator, who believes in the value of a good education. Having been a class room teacher, a Learning Strategist, and the Director of Teaching and Learning at an Independent school in Toronto, Kate knows how important a solid foundation in Math is, and how hard it can be to come by! There are no quick fixes for math, which is why she believes in the Mathnasium Method. Kate's centres in Forest Hill and The Beach were so successful that she decided to continue the math fun at the Leaside location to inspire students to be CRAZY about math. 

Leah Hurtubise, Managing Director

Leah loves to travel, get outdoors with her dog, and spend time with family and friends!

Shikhar Gupta, Lead Instructor

Shikhar has recently moved to Toronto to pursue his dream of obtaining a Master's degree in the field of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering from the University of Toronto. His passion for Maths led him to publish a research paper outside the scope of his engineering, in Statistics during his undergrad. If not academics, he is usually involved with his club, networking and organising events. He ardently loves to watch, discuss and play cricket in his free time along with enjoying some acoustic band sessions.
