Brent is the chief education officer at MOPEX Education & Training. Brent comes from a successful professional career in the healthcare industry. For over 12 years, he distinguished himself as a biomedical engineer at several hospitals. After this, he transitioned to a medical equipment planning position, where he led the commissioning process for several capital healthcare construction projects. During these years, Brent taught part-time for two bachelor of science courses and one certified professional accounting (CPA) course. Brent also taught project management and successfully prepared candidates for the project management professional (PMP) certification examination. Brent then moved on to be the corporate project director at a leading healthcare consulting firm in Toronto.
In December 2007, Brent and his wife Andrea started MOPEX Education & Training. Their initial goal was to provide customized educational solutions to local residents in the Durham region.
Teaching, training and helping young people succeed, has always been Brent's passion. He has a wealth of experience tutoring various subjects at the elementary and high school levels, but he specializes in Math. With his thorough understanding of the Ontario Math curriculum, Brent has the ability to breakdown difficult Math concepts and communicate them in a way that diminishes students' anxiety and lack of confidence.
Over the years, Brent has helped a wide cross-section of students successfully transition to tertiary education, some of whom gained full scholarships to US universities.
Andrea is a professional early educator and co-owner at MOPEX Education & Training,. She is a passionate and exemplary teacher with over 30 years experience. Very early in her career, she earned her Montessori diploma with an emphasis on teaching children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old. Andrea's area of specialization is in the design of customized learning solutions to ensure each child in her "classroom" receives the best foundation in Reading, Writing, and Math.
Andrea has produced and implemented learning programs for children who had fallen behind or who have had late starts to their education. The results have shown complete turn-arounds, enabling children to confidently enter and / or re-enter where necessary, the mainstream learning environment.
From the onset of MOPEX Education & Training to the present, Andrea has combined her teaching skills with her exceptional creativity, resourcefulness and naturally winsome personality, to restore hope and confidence in the lives of many broken children and their equally concerned parents.
