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.

About Me

In my teaching approach I am infinitely patient always trying to explain things from a different angle until student achieves understanding. Also I prefer to torture my students with questions, slowly leading them to an answer rather than just presenting one to them. I believe this way of teaching is more engaging and more effective and it is more fun at least for me :)

Maria
International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) Physics Preparation.
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.

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...

Peter
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. :)

Hanne
Graduated bio-engineer with tutoring experience teaching mathematics and chemistry at primary and secondary level in the Leuven region
I am specialised in teaching mathematics and chemistry at primary and secondary school level. Together we will find out exactly what you need help with and what would be the best teaching method for you. After the introductory conversation, I make an estimate of the best approach. This approach is gradually adapted until we have found the ideal teaching method for you. My aim is to challenge the student, but not to overwhelm. After each lesson, I give homework to follow up on the student's progress.

Muratzhan
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.

Lucas
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.

Diana
Math Lessons for schools students IGCSE, A-levels, IB diploma
Hi, my name is Diana and I am tutoring school students in math and physics. myself I was not a great student until I met my math tutor who inspired me and helped me to see the bright side of mathematics. I managed to motivate myself through high school despite all my struggles and depression and managed to get the highest scores. Because of my high performance in finals, I got accepted to one of the best universities in the world where I am currently studying. through my high school I managed to grasp all the methods my tutor was using and I mastered them with my own students. in case of any questions, feel free to contact me anytime:))

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!

Max
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.

Juan
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.

Dylan
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.

Stef
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.

Algorithms and data structures. We program, we think.
This lessons emphasizes in learning how to solve programming lessons, learning data structures and fundamental algorithms that can be used to solve programming problems. The complexity of the problems will vary depending on the level of the student(s), but mainly we'll solve programming problems from programming competitions, and for graphs.
