Robert
Need help with social studies, English or mathematics?
Hey, my name is Robert. I am 22 years old and are currently studying European studies at UvA. I am from Denmark and last year I worked as a teacher at a private school in Denmark called Vejle Privatskole where I primarily taught math and English. I will be able to tutor social science and English on a level equivalent to secondary education. Math however I will only tutor on a primary school level due to my knowledge of the subject not being as proficient as the other two. My native language is Danish, but my English is almost as excellent as my Danish and I will be able to tutor in either English or Danish however I do not that I do not tutor in Dutch. I am good with children, always smiling and happy so I would be able to tutor children as well as adults. I sincerely hope that whoever reads this will consider me as a tutor. Best regards Robert Kolby
