Here to Serve
Knowledge Bump began when founder Sabrina Sgandurra saw a need for accessible, flexible, high quality, one-on-one private tutoring services. After spending years teaching, tutoring, and working with children in various capacities, she found that students of all ages were missing key opportunities for growth in the publically funded school system and at post-secondary institutions across Ontario, both academically and in terms of their overall well-being. She also found that several companies that advertised high-quality education were only accessible to families above a certain tax bracket, and did not always pay their tutors enough to provide high-quality teaching.
Knowledge Bump is different; It seeks to provide flexible tutoring for parents while providing expertly-trained tutors to ensure high-quality tutoring at affordable rates.
We believe that no student should have to suffer academically simply because the education system isn't designed for them and their needs. Knowledge Bump believes that education and academic success are a right, not a privilege.
Sabrina Sgandurra sees tutoring as more of a mentoring process, with the understanding that clear communication and personal connection are just as important to student success as is access to proper learning materials. She is a current PhD student in the field of English Language and Literature, with a specialization in Games Studies, and through her research is discovering new ways of "gamifying" learning to make lessons more memorable and impactful. She has over 5 years of experience teaching and tutoring students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and Undergraduates, and over 10 years of experience working with children of all ages.
