How to re-create our vibes at home

It's totally undeniable that the space at TMG has a unique and special vibe. Making you feel right at home with plush sofas and colourful throw pillows, it's almost impossible not to feel super comfy at TMG. From the twinkly lights to the yummy aromatic teas and candles, the vibe at TMG helps students chill out during what can be stressful times. So, my question to you is this: don’t you want these super cool vibes to ALWAYS be surrounding you when doing your homework? If your answer to this question was “YES”, let us take you through the 5 steps needed to re-create TMG's sweet sweet vibes, anytime, anywhere.

  1. Tea

Warming you up from the inside out, tea is a staple at TMG. You don’t need TMG’s crazy tea selection to steep your very own cuppa - although, hey, variety IS the spice of life. We recommend a good chai, a solid flavoured black tea (vanilla, caramel, chocolate...something decadent), a soothing herbal tea (think ginger or lemongrass), and a zen green tea blend. Ask anyone who's savoured our selection, and they'll tell you that the FOAM is what makes the tea. Trust us. Invest in a good frother or go cheap and grab a handheld one!

  1. Candles

Helping to create a cozy atmosphere and making any room smell AMAZING, candles are a TMG signature. Watching a candle burn can be incredibly peaceful and help get you into that super focused study zone. Our fave? The amazingly almost-edible selection found at Bath & Body Works. EVERY season they switch it up so that you can be surrounded by yummy warm scents in the winter, and vibrant tropical scents when the weather gets hot hot hot. So, nestle up with your textbook, light a candle, and get in the zone!

  1. Fairy Lights

Who said that fairy lights HAD to be a seasonal thing? Totally disagree! Making every room both comfortable and bright, fairy lights at TMG are found all-year-round. Ambient lighting can set the mood while avoiding the eyesore that comes with awkward reading lamps and sharp yellow light. Sorry if we’re breaking any classic décor rules but for the purposes of getting in the mood to study in style, this tip RULES.

  1. TMG Apparel

Making you feel like good-luck is always with you, why wouldn’t you want to rock TMG apparel? Comfy, cozy, chic – check, check and check. With items ranging from sweatpants to t-shirts, to necklaces and more, there’s a little TMG for everyone to wear. Oh, and bonus: you get to spread the math-love to anyone and everyone cool enough to notice that you're actually making math math trendy. Go you!

  1. A Positive Attitude

Have you ever noticed that our tutors are ALWAYS looking on the bright side? Whether it’s encouraging you to try your best on a test or re-assuring you that success is just around the corner, we're always trying to lift your spirits and help you gain confidence. So whether you’re at home studying for your next evaluation, or freaking out in class in confusion, try to channel TMG's positive vibes – a little bit of sunshine goes a long way!

The holiday season is officially here and we could NOT be more excited about it. At TMG we go ALL OUT for the holidays. Right now our tutoring spaces are covered in beautiful lights and candles that smell like candy canes and gingerbread and learning and math. Sort of. The “24 days of TMG” (an advent-calendar of brain-teasers and math and science related problems) is in full-swing and the overwhelming response is a sure sign that people SECRETLY love math:) Our space is SO incredibly decked out that it feels as though we're basically in the North Pole. And it's freezing outside, so that helps. For me, gift-giving is so much fun because I LOVE giving someone the perfect gift!  For others, though, I understand that gift-giving can be stressful because oftentimes it's difficult to figure out what someone wants.
