Reviews (10)

I've followed ten lessons with Justin, especially to improve my speaking skills. He's a very flexible, social, friendly, communicative guy with broad interests. I really liked to talk and converse with him (only from time to time I had to interrupt him to practice my speaking skills too ;-))
Eerste kennismaking, nog geen menig
Justin is a great teacher. Recommendable!
I asked Justin for help with my cover letters and he did exactly what I asked for. I'll definitely ask for his help again next time I'm having difficulties with a writing piece in English.
Justin is a professional. Lessons are never boring. He knows how to teach!

Denny
Full-time IB Math (HL/SL and Studies) and AP Calculus Tutor
Hello, my name is Denny. I am a full-time tutor with over 10 years of experience and I focus on teaching one single subject---Mathematics. I have extensive experience tutoring IB Mathematics (HL, SL, and studies) and Calculus (AP and university level). I have helped many students with IB exam preparation and the average score improvement of my students is more than 2 (IB grading scale). I teach my students effective learning skills so that they grasp key concepts much faster and I train my students useful problem-solving techniques so that they can solve IB exam questions much easier. I have collected and analyzed all the IB maths past papers in the past 10 years, which allows me to precisely help my students revise all the topics that definitely will be tested in the IB final exams. Ultimately, the tutelage my students are getting from me will enable them to obtain better grades in the exams. For IB Mathematics HL, I teach all four option topics: Statistics and probability; Sets, relations and groups; Calculus; Discrete mathematics. For students who are planning to apply for top universities, I have experience coaching different Maths Admission Tests (such as MAT for Oxford, STEPS for Cambridge, and more) I love Calculus and I also have rich experience teaching AP and university level Calculus. If you want to get the perfect grade in your AP final exam or you want to get a better score for your calculus course, I can help you maximize your efforts and achieve your goal. If you are looking for a professional math tutor, please contact me to sign up for a free trial lesson: ibmathtutor7@gmail.com

All-level TOEFL Prep Courses (English as a Second Language)
When I first took the TOEFL (six years ago), I knew enough English to watch a movie without subtitles andg get most of what was happening and to engage in very simple small talk. I got 108 that time. A prep course I did for the TOEFL taught me that this exam is more about knowing the exam than about the English itself. The predictability of these standardized tests is your biggest weapon. After having moved to the US and having lived there for four years, I can safely say that my level of English is exponentially better than it was when I took the TOEFL. The classes would basically consist of non-stop practice of the different test sections. The goal is for you to show up on the exam date knowing everything that is coming and having the confidence that you can answer it.

Cours Particuliers - Préparation des examens CEB et CE1D mathématiques
Les CEB/CE1D en mathématique sont les examens communs respectivement pour la fin de 6ème primaire et la fin de la 2ème secondaire. Il est important de bien préparer ses examens pour que les élèves ne soient pas surpris et déroutés par le type de questions posées. Je suis donc disponible pour les entrainer, les préparer, et revoir toute la matière afin qu'ils parviennent à avoir les meilleures résultats possibles pour ces examens.

Chris
Test Prep Course (TOEFL, TESOL, SSAT, ACT, LSAT, GRE, GMAT)
This is a course for anyone aspiring to score well on any of a variety of standardized tests (TOEFL, TOESOL, SAT, SSAT, ACT, LSAT, GRE, GMAT). My speciality is the LSAT, in which I scored in the 90th percentile. In addition to successfully taking several standardized tests myself, I have also taught test preparation courses before, including TOEFL preparation for international students. I feel extremely confident in my abilities as a teacher and in my ability to provide objectively useful information which will make you feel more confident and develop your test taking strategies so you can maximize your performance.
