About Barry Mabillard: Barry has been the director of BMLC since starting the program in 2003. Early in his career as a teacher, Barry recognized the need for a learning centre in St. Albert that focused strictly on high school mathematics and science. In the six years since the learning centre first opened its doors, hundreds of local students have taken advantage of the opportunity to receive affordable access to after-school tutoring, homework help, and exam preparation.

A central theme of Barry’s research in education is the exploration of alternative ways to express difficult scientific concepts. In 2005, Barry wrote the study guide Pure Math 30: Explained! and developed the website . This free online resource is currently used by students across Alberta, including many teachers who use the lessons and practice exams as their core learning materials in the classroom. Every January and June, Barry runs diploma prep classes at the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary.
