Our Story

About Our Founder

Dan Lipworth

Meet Dan, our Founder and Lead Tutor, with over 15 years of tutoring experience. His journey began in Grade 11, when he was inspired by his own math tutor. She showed him that it wasn't the subject matter that was difficult, but rather his teacher’s teaching method simply didn’t click with him. With some personal attention geared towards Dan’s learning style, Dan quickly began to excel in Grade 11, and by Grade 12 even began tutoring younger students. Since then, Dan has helped countless students in a wide range of subjects, from Math and Science to English writing and even the MS Office Suite (with a specialization in Excel).


Dan went on to become an engineer, so it’s fair to say that the math tutoring paid off. After spending years in manufacturing engineering, where he conducted countless one-on-one and group training sessions, Dan realized that his true passion lay in the teaching and tutoring he did in his evenings. In 2023, he made the bold decision to transform his passion into a full-time career. His aim is to not only empower students but also to find exceptional tutors who can make a genuine connection with their students. His goal is to not only improve academics, but to inspire the confidence that lies within every student, with which they can unlock a potential that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Our Values

True North Tutors firmly believes in a holistic approach to learning. We understand that these subjects cannot be effectively taught using a one-size-fits-all methodology. That is why our tutors are carefully selected real-world professionals. They possess invaluable first-hand experience in applying the concepts in practical settings. On top of that, they have years of private tutoring experience under their belt.


What sets our approach apart is the emphasis we place on bridging the gap between theory and practice. By immersing students in real-life examples and scenarios, they gain a deep understanding of how these concepts actually work. This allows them to grasp even the most difficult topics with ease, paving the way for improved performance in tests and exams, all with a newfound confidence.

Our philosophy is that no student should ever consider themselves “bad at math” or any other subject, and that everyone can succeed with the right instruction.


At True North Tutors, we strive to make learning  accessible for all students. Our team of dedicated professionals is here to help you reach your highest potential! Contact us today to schedule your first private tutoring lesson, and to learn more about how we can help you achieve success.
