Chemistry, Math, and Science (IB and AP) tutoring from Experienced Teacher

Looking for some help with that science or math course? You're in luck! My name is Elias and I am here to help.

I am a science and math teacher with over 8 years of teaching experience, both in the classroom and in a one-on-one setting. I currently work as a substitute High School science and math teacher - most recently at the Bonn International School in Germany, and previously with the American International School of Budapest - and as a Business English Instructor. I enjoy taking on private students as I feel this can provide a great benefit to students who need some extra help.

I have a dual-bachelors degree in Chemistry and Neuroscience from Portland State University (USA), an MBA from Western Governors University (USA), and am preparing to start a Masters in Neuroscience here in Munich.

I specialize in and have extensive experience in the following courses:

+Chemistry
+Biology,
+Physics
+Math (Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trigonometry, Statistics, Pre-Calculus)
+SAT Prep
+Organic Chemistry
+English

I have worked with students of all levels - from elementary to university. I have a lot of experience working with families, as well as higher-level students, and helping students achieve their educational goals and establish confidence in their academic abilities.

My education is in the sciences, but my passion is in teaching and working with students to realize their academic potential. Many people would not claim chemistry or math as their favorite subjects - and that is why I am here to help! I have a great time teaching these subjects - especially for the reward of seeing students overcome difficult tests and classes. I always bring a high level of enthusiasm to my lessons and try to present material in the most practical ways.

Whether you need help with passing a tough class, preparing for a test, or simply working towards general academic goals, I am happy to help!

"I’ve worked with Elias since extending an independent contractor agreement to him in December of 2014 to be one of our certified tutors in service of Tutor Doctor families. Elias has been a strong contributor to our business and to the advancement of students he serves, with subject matter competency in mathematics, the sciences, humanities, language arts, test-prep support, and writing. Our tutoring positions entail significant independence, and he embraces this responsibility through creation and prompt submission of an academic progress report for each tutoring session.
Direct feedback from his tutoring assignments has been outstanding, and he has made a significant impact in the lives of the students and families."

Carl Pruett, Owner, TutorDoctor Portland, USA

"We have known Elias for almost two years now, and he has worked with both of our high-school aged kids - and he is great with them! Elias started out as just a math instructor for our son, but when we realized that he could also tutor Writing, History (and even Theology) we offered him to help both of our kids with all of their schoolwork!

After so many hours over the past two years, it almost feels like Elias is part of the family!

Not only would I recommend him, but I have set him up with many other families that we know. He's great!"

Sonja and Tom, Portland, OR, USA

"We had a great experience having Elias tutor both of our sons this past summer - when we left for Summer vacation we did not think that we would be able to find such great help here in Budapest, so we were incredibly thankful to find Elias!"

About Me

I specialize in working with High School students in Chemistry, Math, Physics, Biology, and SAT Prep. I have developed a specific teaching method based on my experiences with hundreds of students from many different backgrounds and ages. My goal is to encourage students to find their intrinsic interest and motivation for complicated subjects by finding ways that these areas relate to their own lives.

How do you take a student who is failing a chemistry or math class and turn this into not only a passing grade, but an experience that they can draw on during their university studies?

This is what drives me - to not only help my students learn and pass a class, but find out how to develop the skills they need to tackle other difficult academic situations in the future!

Using areas that a student is already familiar with or interested in, I try to make connections to our focus areas. After a student has become familiar with a subject, we then switch to focusing on passing those exams! I have found that an patient, relatable approach is the best way to get students motivated to work hard and take personal responsibility for their grades and their futures.

Reviews (1)

Elias was terrific, my daughter was panicking about some upcoming exams, but Elias helped her to understand Maths and chemistry concepts that here teacher could not explain. Not only did he explain the problems but gave my daughter methods to learn, revise and understand exam questions. After several sessions my daughter feels extremely positive about the upcoming exams and this is all down to Elias' teaching. I would highly recommend Elias, not only is he a great teacher, he's a nice guy too!

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.

REVIEW + SPECIAL COURSES IN PHYSICAL MATHEMATICS ELECTRONICS CHEMISTRY (courses, exercises, exams corrected)
Professor in mathematics, computer science at HEFF in Brussels and before a professor of electronics at the IEPSCF, ENGINEER in electronics ECAMIEN graduated in mathematics-physics and I propose an individualized pedagogy, an aid in the preparation of the interrogations or exams. My goal is to advance the student without overloading him. I give homework after each lesson and periodically provide progress reports. I strongly encourage the student because the state of mind and morale have a direct influence on school results. I am someone understandable and I always try to take each one in his own way. I always start by clarifying the course after giving an example then give an example to the student more to do a complete exercise and finally correct a review together generally it's that methodology but it can change from one case to another review the courses studied in class. give remarks that makes the job easier. give the tips and tricks you need to get a good rating. try to make the student fast in these calculations and these demonstrations and give the way with which he has to manage his duty.

Serigne
Private lessons in mathematics, physics and computer science
As part of a double-degree program with École Polytechnique in France, I completed a Master's degree at École Polytechnique Montréal in Electrical Engineering between 2016 and 2018. I am currently working as an engineer in the simulation of electrical networks. I have been teaching baccalaureate students in Montreal for two years. In total, I supervised 8 students, 5 of whom are at Polytechnique Montréal. I had to teach Calculus I (continuations, series, multivariate functions), Calculus II (Double Integrals, Triples), Algebra, Static, Resistance of Materials, Differential Calculus, Programming (C, Java, Python). During the five years in France, I also gave private lessons through organizations such as LaptiTude Prépas (with which I had to prepare a final class for the French baccalaureate) or Scolaridée, but also as self employed. My training is very complete in Mathematics, Physical and Industrial Sciences and Computer Science, I gave private lessons in these disciplines, to students whose level was from the 4th secondary to the bachelor's degree (bachelor in Montreal) I always set with the student the objectives that we want to achieve, then we establish a program of progression and follow-up in order to cover all the needs. This allowed us to obtain results that exceeded the preliminary objectives. I like to give private lessons in my free time because it is a very nice experience and a way to help people in difficulty.

Christiane
Private math lessons in French by shared interactive whiteboard
I give remote math lessons, in French, by shared interactive board for high school and high school students. I am civil engineer architect and I teach for 7 years. The most important thing for me is to personalize the lessons, to guide the student so that he understands the subject by himself, so that he manages to organize his work, to structure his reasoning, to manage his time, to manage his stress and finally to gain confidence in him. All this is done by adapting the course to its type of learning, putting all our energy to target and overcome blockages, and finally achieve autonomy. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write me, I will be happy to answer you as soon as possible.

Imama
Maths Tutoring for IB (PYP, MYP, DP), GCSE or equivalent
I am an ex Maths teacher in GCSE and IB programme. I have taught many students and have been trained for teaching using pedagogy. I am an engineer and I used many day to day applications to inspire students. Teaching is just not about sharing knowledge, it is to stimulate the students to want to learn, to get them to learn by themselves at the end. My goal is to help them to not only aid in their grades but to inspire them to want to learn more.

Dr S Iyer
One-on-One Online tutoring in Math: Middle and High School Math, Cambridge A-levels, IB-Diploma, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT by an experienced tutor
I am Dr S Iyer- a tutor with over 16 years of teaching experience as of 2020 and students from all over the globe. I teach one-on-one online (usually over Skype/ Google Meet/ Teams/ Zoom) using a pen tablet and the screen-share feature. My teaching adopts a great deal of "Learn by Doing" methodology that leverages the power of web based interactive tools. I have helped several students to do remarkably well in areas like Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus, Statistics. I have experience with various boards like the IB, Cambridge, K-12, Advanced Placement, ICSE, CBSE and therefore, a good sense of what is emphasised by each of them. I also prepare students for competitive tests like the ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT. More than anything, I trust that if I can replace the fear of a subject with love for it, then I would have truly made a difference to the student.

Benoit
Home math course (Agadir) - Belgian teacher
The accumulation of math gaps is one of the main causes of repetition. While each child has unique learning difficulties, the ever-increasing number of students per class forces teachers to standardize their teaching methods. Faced with this, I decided to specialize in tutoring at home to individually guide each student on the path to success. I give my private lessons in Agadir, at the home of the student. The first session is devoted to an in-depth review of his knowledge of mathematics. The goal is to identify weaknesses and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to his specific needs. I am producing a tailor-made remediation program to gradually fill each of its gaps. In parallel, I accompany the student in the learning of new subjects by making sure that he mastered the mathematical concepts necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do some background work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to the modern means of communication, the student benefits from an emergency aid accessible at a distance 7 days out of 7 (help with the homework, explanation the day before an evaluation, ...).
