    Math, Physics, Mechanics, & Engineering Tutoring: Made Easy!

    Even during normal times S.T.E.M. coursework can be overwhelming -- and the challenges of online learning have only made S.T.E.M. studies harder! In my tutoring I strive to make S.T.E.M. approachable and engaging by using detailed visual aides, a light-hearted classroom atmosphere, and my extensive engineering & science expertise! I can help you with general material understanding, problematic homework, exam prep, & more!

    My ultimate goal: less stress, better grades, & more free-time for you!

    About Me

    I am a PhD candidate in Materials Science & Engineering at Cornell University with a passion for science and teaching. I have spent a LOT of time listening to professors giving really excellent lectures... and a LOT of time listening to awful lectures, so I know first-hand the extraordinary value of effective teaching! I have extensive formal teaching training, as well as teaching experience. I have worked two years as a STEM tutor, I have been the Head Graduate Teaching Assistant for three college STEM courses (where I have won awards for my teaching excellence), and I have even worked for a year training ALL the engineering TA's at Cornell on how to be the best TA's possible!

    I also have a secret background in studio art, and like to let my drawing skills sneak out while tutoring in the form of super detailed visual aides to help convey the hard topics to my students. I also always do my best to maintain a light-hearted teaching atmosphere!

    Mathematics tutoring from secondary school up to Master by French Master
    I am offering my help in tutoring you for all level and age, up to the level Master. I am giving several kind of classes: -classes on a regular basis, to keep up with a certain level -intense classes (over several days/weeks) where the goal is to get ready for an exam or finish up a project. -classes to smooth the integration to higher education (university etc...). My main goal is to guide the student by offering theoretical classes but also practical exercises. I like to emphasize on concrete example since, for many people, mathematics is very abstract and too much about theory. I can also provide help for PHD/Master students having data analysis to perform for their thesis. I can give help for any domain in mathematics: algebra, analysis, statistics, algorithm, logic etc... Please do not hesitate to contact me for further detail.

    Sobia
    Private tutoring Math for all education levels (GCSE,O/A-level, IB MYP/DP, etc)
    I offer lessons in Maths and since 2018 I have been tutoring 20 students on a weekly base. Since 2019 I am teaching maths at the International School of The Hague as well. I've spent a large amount of time teaching/assisting my fellow students and children (up to Graduate level) basic and advanced mathematics as well as physics. I have great experience in tutoring several students of the International of The Hague and the British school (both primary and secondary) following the IB, EB, British curriculum (GCSE, O-level, A-level). I have completed my Bsc degree in double maths and physics and hold a Msc in Mathematics (with a CGPA of 3.91 out of 4.0) . After completing my studies I have held a tutoring academy for short period after which I moved to The Netherlands. I don’t use standard programs or lessons. Instead, I create lessons based on the student's needs and interests. If needed I will hand out exercises to be done at home and some notes on the lesson. The main thing the students have to see is that they are capable of solving a problem and that they can have fun whilst doing so.

    Benoit
    Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
    I am a qualified and experienced private math teacher. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career giving remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual tutoring by following a pedagogical training from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private math lessons daily for almost 10 years. Pleasantly surprised by the impact of my lessons on the school career of my students, in 2018 I created Math Coaching, an online tutoring platform. The platform provides students around the world with quality educational content focused on making math learning easier. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This table is specially designed to promote student / teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it.

    IB program, A levels, GCSE, all subjects: math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, SAT / ACT and more.
    IB PROGRAM EXPERT. A levels, GCSE all subjects: math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, SAT / ACT and more. Full time professional tutor. I have been teaching all IB subjects since 2011. I am a native English speaker and I have an engineering degree. I have been tutoring students from ASB, BFIS and BSB since 2011. I am experienced and certified in continuing education. I provide personal and individual guidance for a wide range of subject areas. I contact the teachers for each subject the student has, to ensure that the material that is being covered in the tutoring session is the exact same as that of the class. My students immediately see a noticeable improvement in their grades as the I help them to focus on time management skills as well. I focus on enhancing study skills and encourage the students to become autonomous learners that strive for academic excellence.

    Serdane
    Private lessons in mathematics (first to fourth)
    My name is Serdane and I offer mathematics classes to students in grades 1 to 4 who are struggling to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore the student's confidence: maths are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). Looking forward to reading you !

    Marko
    Mathematics class for beginners (elementary school), high school students and GRE test mathematics
    I can teach you mathematics - basics or advanced. I also can prepare you for GRE test. Math is all about practise and good teachers, so if you have both that should not be a problem for you. I have always been excellent in math and I really like it and I would like to help people. I can solve different type of problems and help you to understand it better. Math is mostly just practicing, but if you have a good teachers, as I had, then you can save a lot of time in that way.
