As a teacher specialized in programming and ICT, I provide material and resources for the development of analytical, critical, and computational thinking, while also encouraging my students to be creative. I design activities for the cultivation of interpersonal and social skills and a team-working ethos, which are essential for establishing a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. Furthermore, I aim to develop and foster a secure IT environment and an e-safe culture.

I have designed and implemented programming courses not only for young but also adult learners. Some of those courses do not require prior programming experience while some others are more advanced so that learners can choose the one best suited to their needs.

Since 2014, I have also been authorized to teach Maths in light of my mathematical background from my university studies. Therefore, in addition to my computer programming courses, I offer primary and secondary maths lessons.

Math, statistics, physics, chemistry lessons, by videoconference - university level.
******************* court by videoconference only **************************** * ******************* your PC screen becomes a blackboard ********************** * With me, you will love math. Boss math, I had 100% in math during my primary and secondary. Selected every year for the Belgian Mathematical Olympiad, I also participated in other competitions where I was very well ranked at the national level. For me, there is no secret: practice, practice, practice ... The more you practice, the better you understand, the results will improve and you will love this material that is not so witch My pedagogy is flexible, I adapt to the student. Beyond repeating the classical theory, I explain things differently so that the student can understand better. I also like to accompany the student to do math exercises, so that the student can continue alone after my departure. I am also reachable outside class hours if you have a question.

Mathematics and computer science accessible to all
Need a catch-up, tutoring, private lessons or help with homework in mathematics? In computer science ? In logic? I'm here for you! I offer you a personalized approach; because there is no one method that works for everyone, I adapt to the needs and requests of each student (and their parents). The first hour of class will be used to define the student's needs, deadlines and strengths. My courses are aimed at secondary school students of all levels, higher education students outside technical courses (engineering, physics, mathematics, etc.) and anyone wishing to refresh or strengthen their knowledge in mathematics and computer science. Through my reading and my studies in computer science at the École Polytechnique de Louvain, I have amassed a quantity of knowledge in mathematics and computer science that it would be a shame not to share :) Being a student myself, I know the difficulties that certain subjects can cause and the lack of pedagogy of certain teachers. I look forward to working alongside you and unlocking your skills :) I am a master's student in computer science at the École Polytechnique de Louvain (UCLouvain), with a bachelor's degree. Naturally curious, I supplemented my course in computer science with numerous courses in physics (classical and quantum) and logic. I have also been brought to work with people from many backgrounds in various contexts, I learned a great adaptability. I have been volunteering for a long time helping friends and acquaintances in the success of their studies and I hope to be able to use this experience for the benefit of your success :)

I've been a researcher in the field of chemistry and chemical engineering for over 7 years now. Currently, I'm a postdoctral researcher at ULB in the chemistry department. I received my PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK. I can therefore provide tuition for any topic in chemistry, maths and physics, for both students and casual learners of any level. Classes are tailored to your needs, whether you need help to pass an exam or you want to deepen your udnerstanding of a particular topic. Classes are available for students at all levels and casual learners alike. You can bring along any problems or assignments you have or need help with, we can do practice exam questions, or I can teach you a topic from the beginning and provide a course-like service. Online classes are conducted via zoom or skype. We take notes using my iPad, and you receive a PDF of the notes we take and a video recording of our session for you to refer back to later. If you have any further questions, send me a message! I look forward to hearing from you.
