Very good at explaining the material. Broke down the basic facts about physics, so my daughter could understand. We will continue the tutoring session.
A physics class with emphasis on logical reasoning and concepts with less stress on mathematical forms. It gives you access to physical principles through engaging you with analogies, interactive simulations, and imagery of real world situations. What do physics concepts look like without those lengthy exhausting calculations? You'll find out in this class.
Physics is too hard! Physics is boring! Do you want help in your Physics Lessons? Do you want interactive real-life application or physics concepts? Do you want help with those long ugly equations that make no sense? I specialize in teaching physics having received the qualifications to be an IB DP Physics teacher. I have a Masters degree with 7 years of experience in teaching conceptual physics and physics for AP and the International Baccalaureate.
Join this class to learn physics interactively with lots of inquiry, hands on experience, daily life applications and problems solving. You will learn the WHYs and HOWs with educational strategies supported by Science Education research. Methods and Techniques aren't randomly chosen, they're customised to meet the needs and educational background of the student.

Private lessons in Math, Physics, Chemistry and SVT
The courses of Mathematics - Analysis - Matrices - Statistics - Algebra - Geometry - Physics - Mechanics - Electricity - Chemistry - Organic Chemistry - Biology, Geology of secondary or university levels (French, Belgian, European or international programs) are given by explanations either in-depth either by a quick course and summary of essential need depending on the case of each student supported by exercises from the book or assessments and exams from other high schools. My experience is too long and for years I have learned methods for each case and for each student to fill in their gaps with the best results of Excellent, Very Good and Good as a mention of my students. As well as I can help students to better prepare courses and support to better prepare the duties of CNED in science subjects.

Math / stat / proba, physics / chemistry and bio, at your place, at my place or remotely
Teacher gives (ook in het nederlands!), for secondary and higher, private lessons in mathematics (including finance), probability and statistics, physics/chemistry/bio (for physics/chemistry/bio: only secondary level, up to 5th grade ), Goes, if necessary, to your home (Brussels + Walloon and Flemish Brabant). Great experience and many exercises! Possibility of distance learning (Skype, Facebook, etc.). For math in particular: I give a lot of lessons (for all secondary school up to math 6 and higher) on factorization, 1st and 2nd degree equations (with studies of parabolas), limits, derivatives, integrals, exponentials and logarithms, and trigonometry. I am also called upon from time to time for analytical geometry in space (equations of lines and planes). In statistics and probabilities: descriptive and inferential statistics (univariate and bivariate) (with confidence intervals and hypothesis tests), for secondary and higher education.

🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
.. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

Fysica, Natuurkunde, : bijles en hulp voor test/examen voorbereidingen
Als ingenieur wil ik graag helpen andere studenten wegwijs te maken in de soms complexe wereld van wiskunde en fysica. Gedurende mijn studies heb ik 6j bijles gegeven in middelbare scholen, regio Den Haag, Delft, Rotterdam en Antwerpen. Hierbij tracht ik interactief met de leerling de leerstof door te nemen en theoretische concepten zoveel als mogelijk te linken aan voorbeelden uit ons dagelijks leven om student te voorbereiden en motiveren. Indien je dus bijles wenst over een of meerdere onderwerpen in wiskunde of fysica, kan je me contacteren. Ik geef bijles aan leerlingen van het basis- en voortgezet onderwijs tot en met het hoger onderwijs. Van vermenigvuldigingstabellen tot kwadratische vergelijkingen, logaritmische en exponentiële functies, limieten, afgeleiden, integralen,… Alles is mogelijk!

Study Math and/or Physics at your rhythm with practical examples
As a Master in Science (Astrophysics) and a phD student in Aeronomy (Space Physics), I have plenty expertise in Math, Physics, Programming and statistics. I am a very passionate person and I will try my best to drive you through the science world. My goal is not just reinforcement of the topics, but to apply the acquired knowledge in a more daily basis. I strongly try not only to dive into the subjects but also I try to give comfort to the students to make their own mistakes and try to find their own path to learn. I like very much children and I would love also to be able to show them the wonders of science. So if you have doubts, or you want to deep your knowledge just give it a try. For all types of students and all levels.

Zen
Private lessons in mathematics and physics. Secondary and university level.
I also give private lessons to upper and secondary students. I adapt to the demand and level of each student. I can follow the school / university program or push beyond. I prefer a classical education: 1) understanding of the subject and its importance in the field of study or in everyday life 2) illustration by examples 3) exercises allowing to assimilate well and finally to master the subject I attach great importance to understanding and logical reasoning. I progress with the student by also making him work outside contact hours if he wishes

Lucas
Mathematics and Science for Secondary Education
Mathematics and science subjects can weigh heavily in your study career during secondary education. It is therefore important to perform well on this. This can be a challenge for many students, especially in the third grade. In my lesson I try to explain the subject matter to students using their own course, my old course and extra exercises. The ultimate goal is for students to gain a better understanding of their course.

Private lessons Maths-English-French/ Introduction to the French language
The French language is an important language to master just like English. These two languages, when learned and assimilated allow us to go almost anywhere in the world. As for mathematics, they are an integral part of school life and will be encountered at university, therefore essential to master.

Mouad
Excellence: Maths - Physics - Chemistry - Technology courses for College - High School - University levels
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Hi all ! 👋 My name is Mouad, I am passionate about knowledge and I love to pass it on! 👨‍🎓 I hold a Master's degree in Operational Research (Applied Mathematics) and have been teaching private lessons for more than 2 years, mainly mathematics for College, High School and University levels. ✏ I have taught students from public school, Private, French Program (Mission), Belgian, Swiss, Spanish Program (students from the Spanish school who are French or English speaking), American Program... In short, all French or English programs. I also teach physics and chemistry as well as scientific subjects in general (except SVT) The sessions generally take place as follows: 1️⃣ The first sessions are mainly intended to gauge the level of the student in order to highlight the shortcomings observed. 2️⃣ Then comes the establishment of a plan to fill the gaps: Number of hours of work required, The parts of the lessons to focus on, Several training and development exercises... 3️⃣ We make sure to do all of this while staying up to date with the student's class teacher. 4️⃣ I then provide exams similar to what is likely to be asked in class. 5️⃣ I draw up a report on request, usually monthly, in order to keep parents informed about their child's level throughout the course. I also adapt my methodology according to the needs of each student, so everyone has a personalized working method adapted to their needs! I also do crash courses for those who are preparing for the start of the school year so that they start the year strong 💪 and know the program in advance. 🧠 💭 If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me ;)

Panagiotou
Private lessons in biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and mathematics (secondary)
Graduated in medical biology, and currently pursuing a Master's degree in the biology of organisms and ecosystems, I offer my help in the following areas: -mathematics, chemistry, organic chemistry, biology - Specialized sciences in the field of medicine (physiology of systems, histology and general pathology, etc.) My goal is to help students and above all allow them UNDERSTANDING above all! I will communicate to each course a progress report and homework to be done for certain courses.

Arina
(Private) Math tutoring for secondary school students
- As for the lessons. The lessons are about mathematics of secondary education. More specifically, I will assist in the theoretical processing of mathematics as its application (the exercises). In addition, I will provide additional study material (aids, schedules, ...) if necessary. - Way of handling. I would like to have an overview in advance of the study material, the tests or tasks in which certain problems are visible, .... This way I can prepare the lessons in advance and focus on the problem. In addition, I can estimate / determine his / her level in this way. I try, in a simple way and for the student in an understandable way, to explain the course in a different way so that this is clear to the student. Afterwards I like to enjoy the results. - Why am I doing this? Math is a passion of mine and for me there is nothing more fun than sharing my passion. Unfortunately, my love for mathematics is not part of my studies and that is why I like to do this as a hobby and as an extra income. Of course I work professionally. - Experiences? I love nothing more than tutoring my fellow students about the subject matter. This is appreciated by them. Of course I also have experience in tutoring mathematics of both primary and secondary education. - Who am I? My name is Arina and I am a legal practice student. I am 22 years old and I live in a student flat in Leuven. In high school itself, I had a traumatic experience in first and second high school for mathematics. I thought it was a very interesting and cool subject, but I just couldn't understand it. During these years I had the same teacher, who did not teach me the subject matter in a, for me, the right way. After (compulsory by my parents) tutoring, my interest in mathematics increased to such an extent that I started studying economics mathematics in the following years. My love for math just won't go away...
