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. If you’re having trouble thinking about what to get that math and science loving person for the holidays, look no further! We said we were pumped about the holidays and we mean it. We want to help YOU find the BEST, COOLEST and CUTEST gifts for that math and science loving someone. And so, we're pumped to present....5 Awesome Gifts for Math and Science Lovers!

Back to School - The IT List

If you tuned into our last blog post, you’ll have seen that we provided you with style inspo courtesy of our fave fictional characters. So this week, we thought we’d bring things back to IRL and give you some must-have Back-to-School items you can actually get your hands on. il_570xn-1073516593_4vhm

Backpack Pins

Want to give your backpack or pencil case a little boost? Add some decorative pins! There are literally endless options of cute pins on Etsy.com (just search “Backpack Pins”) but we love these ones with one of our fave slogans “You Do You”! If you’re feeling a little craftier, you could also buy badges and sew them onto your backpacks.

For all our students who carry laptops from class to class, we LOVE these laptop cases from zazzle.com . They’ve got you covered for every personality, from wacky animal memes, to more simple and sweet designs.

Sleek Water Bottles

Who knew a water bottle could ever be sexy? You might have noticed that S’Well bottles were popping up everywhere this summer, and we can see why! These stainless steel bottles can keep your drinks both hot and cold, and come in tons of different colours and patterns. You all know how important hydration is to keep your brain sharp, so having a water bottle on hand will keep you sipping away all day.

Academic Agenda

This one’s kind of obvious, but if you don’t already have one then definitely go out and grab it. Agendas/Planners/Calendars are SUPER useful in keeping tracks of all your projects, tests and assignments. We know the ones the schools give out can sometimes be a little drab, so maybe invest in a different one if you think it will motivate you to use it more!
