Akapelwa Mweemba

Akapelwa Mweemba of Westpark School in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, sets such a high standard for his students that many begin the year thinking they will not succeed. Instead of failing, however, they are surprised to find out that they can meet, and often surpass, his expectations. Many have also gone on to superior performance at math contests. Mr. Mweemba and his students also overcome the challenges posed by having students of different levels studying together. He has turned this into an advantage for them by making extensive use of peer tutoring.
