    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.

    About Me

    I'm passionately curious about the world and how it works; I can find interest in just about any subject. My current academic pursuits are in the areas of the philosophy of ideas, zeroth-order logic, molecular genetics, and computer programming; including artificial intelligence.
    Besides academic interests, I enjoy sports of all kinds. I currently play ice hockey in the Belgian national league. I'm also a keen photographer. I only use film and I develop and print my images purely by the 'traditional' method of using a cocktail of chemicals in a darkroom.

    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.

    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...

    Physics Lessons, Assignments, Lab Reports (High School, A-O Levels, University Level)
    I can teach you High School, A-O Level Physics lessons. I will assist you in solving the physics realted problems for the homeworks and assigments. I can help you in writing Physics lab reports as well. Moreover, in addition to Physics I can teach you Mathematics and Chemistry as well.

    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.

    Edouard
    Private lessons in maths and physics. Secondary and university level.
    University professor for 18 years and doctor of applied sciences, I also give private lessons to high school students and high school students. I adapt to the demand and level of each student. I can follow the school / university program or push beyond. I favor a classical education: 1) understanding of the subject and its importance in the field of study or in everyday life 2) illustration by examples 3) exercises to assimilate and finally master the subject I attach great importance to understanding and logical reasoning. I progress with the student by also working outside contact hours if he wishes.

    Nicolas
    Private math lessons by experienced teacher currently in post
    Hello, my name is Nicolas, I am 35 years old and the public to which I am the most accustomed is that of preparatory classes for the grandes écoles, for mathematics lessons in general. However, I also have experience in preparing students from the second to the third year of the license because of the large number of hours of lessons that I have given as well as the many students followed. My teaching method consists of clarifying the course first, making sure that each definition and theorem is well understood. We then discuss the basic exercises and techniques, and finally, if the course followed is demanding, tackle more complicated exercises or even competition subjects. I have just arrived in Brussels as part of a job at the University and look forward to communicating my interest in science to as many people as possible. My background and my research interests also allow me to intervene in physical sciences or computer science.

    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.

    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. I cannot compete with old teachers with years of experience but I can surely compete with my up to date and modern methods. in case of any questions, feel free to contact me anytime:))

    Catalin
    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.

    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!
