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 :)

Bernard
Private lessons in Mathematics at secondary level
Mathematics is an essential universe in everyday life. Because thanks to this knowledge we are able to demonstrate logic and reasoning in the face of different life situations through analysis and observation. To do mathematics is to know how to master the basics of mathematics such as analysis, algebra, geometries and trigonometry to solve a specific problem.

David
Math&Physics for School and University Students: IB SL/HL, EB,IGCSE, GCSE, ICSE, CBSE, SPM, AP, A-levels, Cambridge
I'm a Math&Physics tutor for school students of all ages, Mostly help graduate students in SAT, IB, A levels Math&physics. My classes consist of only one student because every student needs a different approach. I believe that the best way to teach someone sth is to understand how his/her mind works and after that find the most effective and convenient method for the individual. Teaching is one of my hobbies and I do this to help students by sharing my knowledge and skills, so if you think you are motivated enough to do your best then I will be more than happy to teach you! And if you aren't motivated enough, then I will do all I can to help you find that motivation that you need for success. Currently, I'm doing online classes with a virtual board, which makes classes the most efficient. If you have any questions feel free to text me, will reply to you as soon as possible ;))

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.

François
Tutoring Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics and French region of Leuven (secondary)
I am a TEW student at the KULeuven and would like to offer my services to secondary school students who could use some help outside school hours. Together with my students, I look for the right study approach to fully understand the courses and I myself try to present the subject matter in a different way so that my students gain more insight into the subject matter to be known. I myself graduated from the Sint-Albertus College in Haasrode with a diploma in science mathematics (6 hours) and I was brought up perfectly bilingual (Dutch-French).

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. :)

Ibrahim
Mathematics guidance primary school for tests or tasks
Mathematics can be a fairly difficult subject. especially if you are still in primary and have to learn the basics that will become very important later. My goal is to help you get better marks for this subject. I will do this by guiding you with tasks or topics that you do not understand. I want to turn you into a real math genius by the end of the school year. About myself: I'm Ibrahim, I'm 17 years old and I'm a 6Economics-Language student. My native language is Dutch. After that I also learned English, French and Arabic. I am very good with children and have experience with them. I spent a total of 9 weeks on various playgrounds in Brussels and Leuven.

Natalia
Biology, chemistry, physics, statistics, english, dutch, anatomy.
Hi everyone, I am a Belgian student, currently, I'm in my first master's year at the KULeuven. I chose a master's in 'Rehabilitation sciences and physiotherapy specialization musculoskeletal disorders'. During my bachelor years, I developed a very good basic knowledge of science subjects and mathematics: I studied statistics for 3 years, molecular cell biology, chemistry, physics, biomechanics, biochemistry and anatomy. The quality of teaching of both the University of Leuven as the high school I went to (Heilig Hartcollege Tervuren) is something I am very happy/thankful for. I would love to share the education and the knowledge I acquired by supporting and teaching you or your child/teen. I would consider it as a sort of study pathway counseling. As I already have a bachelor's degree in one of the highest-ranked universities in Europe, I have a broad knowledge of quite some subjects. I have a lot of experience working with children and teenagers, I have been a leader in a Scout for children aged 12 to 18. I have also been a tutor for 5 years now. I love working with other people as I am a very social, empathic, and motivated person. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have more questions about the topics and fields of study that I can cover, or if you have a special inquiry I currently live in Belgium. Lessons can be taught in English or Dutch. I hope to meet you soon and start working on enhancing those performances! Kind regards, Natalia

Arina
(Private) Mathematics 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...

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.
