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 :)

Physics Problem-Solving: Strategies and Application !
Solving Word Problems in Physics is an essential skill to pass any physics course. In this class we focus on developing those skills. There are strategies for that. It is not a random approach. You can learn it. You will be taught how to translate a bulk of text into meaningful diagrams and variables that can be used to obtain and calculate a physical quantity. You will learn how to use which equation and where. The gap in your mathematical knowledge will be filled to tackle any physics problem.

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. :)

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.

Júlia

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.

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 ;))

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...

Viktor
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!

Max
Math and science tutoring for young students. Taught by Engineering student
Math and sciences can be an acquired taste for many people. My goal is to help others understand concepts and understand the way things work so that they may also enjoy the courses they need help in. I aim that every lesson counts and that the student gets something out of every minute spent with me.

Lucas
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.

This lessons emphasizes in learning how to solve programming lessons, learning data structures and fundamental algorithms that can be used to solve programming problems. The complexity of the problems will vary depending on the level of the student(s), but mainly we'll solve programming problems from programming competitions, and for graphs.

Murat Han
High School Mathematics (IB), Physics (IB), Chemistry (IB) , Lab Reports and Individual Investigations, SAT Maths
I am an electromechanical engineering student at KU Leuven. I have completed the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme with high level in Maths, Physics and standard level in Chemistry. Because it has only been 1 year since I finished the IB programme, my course knowledge is still fresh. I believe I carry the traits of a creative thinker with an enthusiast to learn and teach. I have heard that in my high school my teachers are introducing my lab reports and investigations to the students as samples with high creativity and quality. I can help the middle school and high school students with their Maths, Physics, and Chemistry courses along with the lab reports and investigations. Tutoring will be in English.
