Mr. Koivu's Schedule: 2013 - 2014
Phone:   473-8100 ext: 9028     (I check my voice mail daily)


Students should try to make the most of their class time to ask questions.   I am also available during lunch most days and during period 1 for exta help.   Please make these arrangements in advance

Arrangements can also be made for extra help at 3:35 p.m. 

As well, many science students have benefitted greatly from tutoring arrangements with one of our many talented senior students at Churchill.   I can assist in setting up a tutoring arrangement, with the tutoring fee ($) negotiated between the two parties.
