Intro to Finance
The intro to Finance lecture, also given to SHAD Canada students last summer, introduced the fundamentals of business and market competition which has been extensively studied in economics and business domains. Through a series of fun examples, engaging exercises and interesting discussions, students discovered the basics of competition within economic and business contexts while also having the opportunity to attend a lecture hosted by Laurier University professor of marketing Martin Qiu. A big THANK YOU to you Professor Qiu for your kindness and support!

Here's what our parents have to say:
My son is fascinated by the meetings with his HomeworkHub tutor. He is looking forward to them and after them he is always excited and continues to play the games they both played. When their last meeting was over, he was very disappointed and cried that they would not see each other again. It's great to see my child inspired to learn!
From start to finish HomeworkHub was great! Our tutor was friendly and patient with our son and she really took her time to help him with his math.
My son is an only child, so when school went to remote learning, he was struggling. He needed more one on one time, and this program gave it to him. He was happy to have a study buddy and someone to guide him through his school work. It was beneficial that he was brainstorming with another young student, because he felt more comfortable doing homework with a peer instead of an adult.
Our tutor went the extra mile to help my son on his Math. He sent out a link of Khan Academy for him to enrich the knowledge and practice what he learned. During the session, he patiently helped my son to understand the concept and sometimes spent extra time with him at the end of session.
Great experience, very helpful. Esther always helped with homework questions and when no homework, she played learning games with my child.

Can I sign up for more than one subject?
Absolutely! You can sign up for a total of 3 subjects at a time, although tutor availability may vary from subject to subject.
My 8 weeks are up. Can I sign up again?
Yes! You can sign up as many times as you want! Again, availability may vary.
My Tutor/Student is unresponsive, what do I
Please email us! We'll get in touch with the person and sort it out. If they are still unresponsive, we'll assign you to someone new!
I finished my sessions! What do I do now?
Congratulations! Log in your hours and we'll contact you when we have someone new for you!
I signed up for HomeworkHub but no one has
been in touch?
Please check your spam inbox! Our emails sometimes wind up in there. If you still haven’t heard from us, that may be because we don’t have anyone available for you at the moment. If you are in urgent need for a tutor, please send us an email and we will do our best to pair you ASAP.
I’m an adult looking to volunteer, can I register?
Thank you for your interest in volunteering! If you are in University, then you absolutely can so long as you provide a valid vulnerable sector police check. If you are an adult out of school, a check must still be provided and you will most likely be paired with an adult student.
