Hiba Kharroubi, Instructor


Hi! My name is Hiba Kharroubi and I am a student at the University of Calgary pursuing concurrent degree in Mathematics and Education. I have been tutoring for 3+ years, and it’s been an absolute thrill.  I enjoy working with kids, youth, and teens to see them grow to love math, while surpassing their own expectations! It’s amazing witnessing students set goals and reach them, not only boosting their confidence, but proving to themselves that they can do it. Math is everywhere around the globe and in all phenomena, and my only wish is that students grow to appreciate how crucial and exciting it can really be! 

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy adventuring around the city and making memories. I’m a Marvel enthusiast- I love superhero’s and their character development. Lastly, I will forever and always be a shawarma lover!!
