    English and Math for Prep Tests (TOEFL/GRE), Academic English, Portuguese (native speaker)

    I offer classes for two different groups:
    - Young adults preparing for TOEFL/GRE with sessions focused in solving exercises from the exams and improving the student's skills
    - Academic English for researchers and people in academia, where we focus on methods, format and language of academic texts. Sessions could be focused on review the student paper

    A little about myself. I am Ph.D. student in Electronic Engineering at Imec, Leuven. I lived in the USA twice, as an exchange Student at MIT for a year and as a J1 worker at McDonald's for 3 months. I have scored 103 and 112 in the two times I did the TOEFL exam, and I scored at the 99% math percentile in my GRE score. I was born in Brazil, thus Portuguese native speaker, and I have lived in Leuven for two years, so we can communicate in basic Dutch.

    About Me

    I was born and raised in Brazil, but with time I had many opportunities to live abroad and practice languages around the world.
    During my freshman year I decided to work at McDonald's in Alabama to improve my English for three months. Just after that, I also traveled to Zambia for a community building conference to solve local problems with local resources.
    I went to MIT in 2015 as an exchange student due to my experience and worked with MakerNurse doing research in electronics for healthcare.
    Now, after my Master's in Electronic Engineering I moved to Leuven to pursue my Ph.D. in state-of-the-art electronics at Imec.

    Anusha
    Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
    Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.

    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...

    WISK / BIO / CHEMISTRY / PHYSICS | University student who teaches science subjects to secondary students of all levels.
    It is important that I know how the lesson is taught by the teacher. That is why I always prepare my lessons on the basis of the teacher's workbook. Then I teach from the very beginning. I am convinced that you can never build on things without a good foundation. Does this base not work? Then we'll just start over until we get the hang of it! For a further build-up in difficulty I fully adapt to the pace of the student, this is important to be able to remember everything in the long term, such as for a test within a few days. After class I am also available 24/7 to forward small questions or extra exercises that we can discuss in a next lesson. So no worries, you can always contact me. :)

    Mathematics, Statistics (School level/ University Level)
    I mostly specialise in training overall mathematical ability of the student. Mathematics is not only about complicated formulas and rules, it is rather something that is simple and that makes sense if you use logical reasoning. As an extra bonus, it is used in our everyday life and nearly everyone needs it as a main working tool of their job. That is why it is taught as a core class in many schools. So concentrating on only the syllabus given is also an option. You may decide what you want me to deliver.

I can work at your pace, whether it's for exam preparation, text analysis, grammar or just wishing to feel more confident. I also work with those wishing to learn business English and can cater for vocabularly in specific fields of work.

    Mathematics (at all levels) and high-school Physics. SAT, GRE, and GMAT exam preparation.
    My excellent academic career has nurtured in me a natural talent for teaching. My experiences have taught me how to tackle one problem at a time, and I believe that using this approach—paired with my unconventional examples that force students to think outside the box—I can truly provide an excellent understanding and explanation. I adapt that lecture to the specific needs of the student based on their knowledge and grasp of the concepts. I like to develop analytical and scientific ability along with knowledge in my students, and for that, I use a combination of resources in the form of worksheets, class tasks, and past papers. Last, I believe in the strong ethic of providing feedback to the parents, so that they are aware of their child’s progress.

    Viktor
    Mathematics for school students, test preparation and math competitions
    Hi🇺🇦! I have a powerful ability kindly explain hard math rules and usually people with a math anxiety tend to feel safe on my math sessions. I would like to share my deep knowledge with more advanced students (math competitions, preparing for exams) as well. Firstly, we will make a short survey to see in which areas you need a help. After that I will make a plan for our study and give you my feedback. I’ve been teaching math online via zoom for 2 years, therefore I have enough expertise to do it perfect. So, contact me if you need some math help. I believe I could help you!

    Math and science tutoring for young students. Taught by Engineering student
    Math and sciences can be an acquired taste for many people. My goal is to help others understand concepts and understand the way things work so that they may also enjoy the courses they need help in. I aim that every lesson counts and that the student gets something out of every minute spent with me.

    Math / Physics lessons with a university teacher 123
    I have a master's degree in Mathematics and have been a college-level math teacher and a high school math teacher. I have a lot of experience helping students with math problems. If your problem is one of these: Solving algebraic or geometric problems Solving problems on Statistics, probability or Operation Research Solving problems on Calculus, or abstract algebra Translating logical statements to formulas Finding motivations to study mathematics Finding your own method or style for solving math problems Sure, I can help you and I will enjoy doing it.

    Mathematics and Physics tutoring (high school - university level)
    I am an Oxford Physics graduate with two years experience as a private tutor, teaching students Mathematics and Physics (Primarily for UK A-level). I have also helped students in the past in preparing for entrance exams and interviews for top UK universities such as Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London. My tutoring style works on the spirit of cooperation, we will work on problems and examples together, with lots of discussion and additional questions to help the student build enough confidence to tackle problems by themselves. I will then set students homework to complete by themselves based on the tutorials, to reinforce the concepts introduced there.

    Math and Physics Classes and Tutoring (High School/University)
    I am a fresh PhD in theoretical Physics, currently working as a post-doc researcher at KUL with focus on string theory. I offer Math/Physics classes and/or tutoring service for high school and university students. Let me know what you want to learn and I will customize the class for your needs :)

    Sean
    Advanced Tutoring in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics
    Having conducted international-level experimental and theoretical scientific research for many years (PhD University of Cambridge, National Physical Laboratory, Max-Planck Institute, KUL, and UCL) I offer tailored and adaptive tutoring in mathematics, chemistry, and physics. My main focus is in helping those pupils in their final two years of school who are preparing for university. I also specialize in preparing students for the Belgian medical entrance exam by actually solving the problems of all the past entrance exams and providing tips and insight for rapidly homing in on the correct answers. My philosophy is that science and mathematics can be related to each person's everyday experience. I try to provide insight and solid foundations so that students will not have to rely heavily on blindly memorizing large sections of their courses.
