At Elpis, we pride ourselves on the teaching staff that we have assembled. Our teachers are diversely experienced in a variety of educational fields.  They are university graduates who have specialized and/or furthered their own knowledge and skill sets in their areas of teaching. Our certified teachers are all in good standing with the Ontario College of Teachers.

Elpis teachers go through a rigorous interview process and training session before becoming a member of our staff.  They must be intelligent and kind, demanding the same traits from their students.

  • Our teachers are qualified and experienced in a variety of subjects and carry specialist, major, and minor degrees in the courses they are instructing.
  • Our teachers have taught or are currently teaching in local high schools.
  • Our teachers are passionate about the subjects they teach and the art of teaching.
  • Our teachers are life-long-learners who try to pass on their thirst for knowledge to the students they teach.
  • Our teachers are dedicated, patient, caring, and understanding.
