United We Stand

Virtual Math Club

The Asians in the Americas Support and Professional Network (AASPN) and the Youth Leaders Circle (YLC) from the Chinese Cultural Centre (CCC) have collaborated together to implement a virtual afterschool program to connect tutors with Grade 9 students who need additional support with Math across the GTA. 
We are looking for individuals with a passion for teaching to join our team of tutors! Tutors must be comfortable in teaching and helping students in Grade 9 Math for Winter 2021 (until June). This is a volunteer remote position with a minimum commitment of one hour a week. All sessions will be conducted online.
AASPN is a registered non-for-profit civil organization primarily engaged in advancing Asian-American interests across Canada and the US. YLC is a group made out of young professionals at the CCC that promote leadership in preserving Chinese culture and heritage to its diverse community.

Upon retirement, Henry volunteers most of his time with The Children’s Breakfast Clubs and Diabetes Canada Toronto Chinese Chapter, promoting Diabetes awareness and education to Chinese community in Toronto.Tina also worked at American Express as Secretary in the Data Processing Department for 4 years and later in the airline & hotel hospitality industry. Tina followed her passion for flowers and dedicated full time in her own flower shop, 24 challenging years, how time flies.Ask any kids about Canadian education, going to school in Canada is definitely heaven. Karen thoroughly enjoyed her school years, she graduated at University of Western Ontario Business School and was also hired by American Express, Marketing Department upon graduation. After 4 years she moved on to American Express Headquarter, New York.Tina and Henry Wong tell us “We keep a copy of the Lunar calendar at home, this helps us keep track of all the important Chinese dates, festivals. We can thus observe and abide traditional customs on the right day. Asian heritage is always in our mind and soul.
