University Admissions Consultations For Graduating Students

University Admissions are always a very stressful time period in our lives.

We are aspiring to attend an institution where we will have the chance to blossom as adults and become a truer version of ourselves. Of course, the institution that we enter can either aid us or hurt us to a great extent, so we spend great amounts of effort deciding where to go.

Let me be very direct and straight to the point. I've assisted many of my past students in their applications, which are of course multifaceted and focused on many different aspects. I've assisted with crafting powerful essays and personal statements that are memorable to an admissions officer. I'm aware of how to take the ACT/SAT/TOEFL/GMAT and what techniques to use to improve. I'm well versed in what makes a strong portfolio and a strong set of extra-curricular activities. In addition to this, I have an extensive bank of material that can be used for preparation for tests and so forth.

A number of students I've worked with in the past have gotten into ivy league institutions and many top European institutions.

I can't promise I'll turn your child into the next Albert Einstein, but I will guarantee that they will represent themselves in a far more well-rounded and impressive light to the admissions officer seeing your applications.

About Me

My name is David and I am an engineering student at KU Leuven. I enjoy reading, programming and above all, learning new things. I believe that we have an innate responsibility as humans to seek out the mysteries of the world and explore them.
In addition to this, I enjoy teaching younger students about things I know, as it often results in them injecting new perspectives into old knowledge.

"If you can't explain it simply, you don't know it well enough"

Education

I am currently an Engineering student at KU Leuven. Graduated from American International School of Vilnius. I grew up in the United States and graduated high-school in Lithuania.

Experience / Qualifications

ACT 33
SAT Physics 780
SAT Math level 2 760

Have assisted many students in the past with application essays and IB work. Students I have worked with in the past have entered ivy-league universities.

Reviews (3)

Punctual and ready to adapt and adjust lessons to my daughter's concerns and needs in math. Highly recommended.
Nice, good teacher with pation and smart methods.
Very good teacher. Great methods .
Mathematics is a field that many of us struggle with so intensely in the early years of our lives. The defining feature of mathematics is logical complexity and that can be a challenge to even the brightest students. Breaking down the really big ideas into small, bite-sized pieces is not something that is easily done. First you need to understand what you're breaking down and second you have be good at communicating it. I am a bachelor of Electronic Engineering from KU Leuven, hence I've had to work through these very concepts from scratch, to a far deeper level then I've had to deal with in high school. As I've graduated this year, my understanding is still fresh and strong. I am also a passionate debater and public speaking enthusiast. Communicating a new idea to someone is in my daily curriculum and I love it. On top of all of this I have been tutoring privately for around five years now and have NEVER had a student complain, or feel like their time has been wasted. Of course the only thing that can guarantee a student's success is their own work, but understanding how to do the work, is more than half the battle.
I specialize in the IB subjects of HL mathematics and HL physics. Additionally, I specialize in ACT reasoning/SAT subject preparation having experience tutoring other students in the past and myself having high scores on these tests. As an added bonus, I have extensive experience in essay writing for classes like English, but more importantly as application essays for upcoming undergraduate students. I have been through the United States/United Kingdom application processes and can advise/guide students still uncertain about their choices, while at the same time providing reliable feedback in crafting powerful application essays. In my classes I aim to assist the high-school student in succeeding in his chosen subjects within the international baccalaureate program whilst assisting the student in his or her advance towards higher education.

EVERYDAY EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND EMPATHY, AT THE SERVICE OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
This training allows you to learn about the concepts of emotional intelligence & empathy with the aim of better recognizing and understanding your own emotions and those of others. Being aware of emotions allows better management of behavior in human relationships, both in the professional, private, entrepreneurial framework (...). For example, as a key to management, it makes it possible to: • Measure the impact of emotions in team management. • Analyze your own mode of operation to get the most out of it. • To be able to put in place strategies to regulate his own emotions and those of his collaborators. • Know how to approach delicate interviews taking into account the emotional factor. • To be able to understand, recognize and name his own emotions as well as those of his collaborators. • Discover the emotional process. • Manage the team (the impact of emotions on communication and decision making), the emotional quotient and leadership styles. • Motivate and mobilize its employees over the long term, and in particular in the context of interviews "to strong emotional potential "(reframing, motivation, problem solving, tense sessions, conflicts etc). Emotional intelligence is a process of personal development over time. This training allows you to initiate the process, with concrete tools that can be applied on a daily basis. This training combines group activities, individual reflections, videos and scenarios. From theory to practice with simulations. It is a question of putting in place rational and professional tools to achieve the objectives set together and overcome the blockages initially defined. Controlled, the techniques allow: • to rely on emotional intelligence and capitalize on the empathy communicated to better ensure that his message is better received his message or being. • improve credibility, self-confidence and ease (verbal-bodily) with public speaking and a more fluid sense of repartee. • defuse conflicts and enter your comfort / safety zone. In particular simple and logical techniques, which make it possible to resolve and manage violent situations in a harmonious, effective and lasting way, for example through NVC (Non Violent Communication). • better manage negotiation situations (contrary to the stereotypes conveyed, negotiation is not only financial, but it can be small everyday events). • Match the content and form of your message while improving the use of your emotional intelligence. What you will get out of it: • Better control of emotions and therefore of your way of communicating • Better understanding of the feelings of others and the ability to lead them successfully • Better relationships in personal and professional life thanks to superior emotional intelligence • Less stress thanks to a better understanding of one's emotions and those of others • Greater determination and results-oriented mindset • Ways to develop and apply emotional intelligence in the workplace Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *.

German Conversation. Improve your German conversation skills.
I am a native German speaker. The idea is to build your confidence in speaking German. Learning a language is all about communication and building your confidence in using the vocabulary which you have already acquired. Although it is important to learning vocabulary and grammar, it is also very important to improvise with the knowledge that you already have. Improvisation allows communication thus improving your confidence in speaking.
