International Baccalaureate Biology Standard Level (SL, IB)

I passed the IB diploma program for Biology Standard Level with full marks, I also received a 7 on my Internal Assessment (IA). I have a very good grasp on what the IB expects from it's students (all the weird and wonderful little criteria.) I have a very good grasp on Biology the subject itself, as it was one of my favorite classes and I understand the concepts on a broader and more minute scale, so I can help students to understand the topics as well as the specifics and how they all play into one another. I aim to provide students with not just the memorization of information in a somewhat robotic sense, but an actual understanding and comfortable grasp on all the topics, ideas and concepts. I can help with any homework or course work provided, including providing feedback and guidance on essays and assignments. I also like to set out extra homework (not difficult, just based on our sessions) to get back to me at the next meeting so that the student's confidence and grasp on the subjects continues to build and I can see where exactly they need assistance.

NB: prior to our meetings, if possible, I would appreciate being sent whatever course work or topics the student is currently doing in class (or the syllabus, in the best case scenario) in order to best maximize my planning and ability to assist.

About Me

Hi! :) I'm Elme. I'm South African, and I grew up all over Africa. I've lived in Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, and finally the Netherlands for the past 5 years. I've traveled all over the world so chances are I've spent some time in your home country! As for tutoring, when I was a student in the IB I was in need of a tutor for math, and I tried out multiple different ones before I found what worked for me. Due to this, I have some invaluable personal experience as to what works and what doesn't. I also understand the inner workings of the IB and the weird and wonderful criteria that they set for their students, as well as how to 'hack' that sometimes complicated system. During my high school years, I tutored my siblings and their friends as well as my own friends and some other students who reached out. I consider myself pretty easy to get along with and I can quickly get a read on what exactly each student needs in the long run, in order for continued success :)

Education

I graduated from the IB Diploma Programme myself and I am currently doing my second year of a Bachelor of European Law at Maastricht University. I also attended UWCM for two years!

Experience / Qualifications

I have multiple years of tutoring IB students, including all different age ranges. I also was an IB student myself, and understand the inner workings and expectations.

Reviews (2)

she is really friendly and nice to study with.
Elme is wonderful and very articulate! My daughter finds her teaching very helpful in analyzing and writing up her assignments.
I can offer English tutoring for grades 3 through to DP2 in IB English. I passed the IB with a consistent 7 in English Language and Literature (the highest English course available) and received full marks for most of my assignments. I can help with fundamental concepts, understanding of what is expected to meet the IB's requirements, and how to answer the questions and do the assignments to meet the specific expectations of the IB. I am also available to help with the completion of assignments (in terms of guiding, correcting, and suggestions) and with whatever course work is assigned (including any books that are assigned.) NB: If the work with which I am to help is related to an assigned reading book, please inform me of the book in advance so that I can do some preparatory work.
I completed the IB DP with a consistent 7/ high 6 in Higher Level History, and this has always been one of my favorite subjects. I am very good at this subject and have somewhat of a passion for it. I have a very good grasp of what is expected from the IB students as pertains to this subject, and I know the ins and outs of the criteria and the weird and wonderful little ways in which the IB expects the students to perform. I am able to help with any course work, homework, assignments, or assessments. As pertains to the DP students, I also did my EE on a History topic so I can assist there if need be. I am also a tutor in English and as comprehensive writing and legibility is a large part of what is expected from IB History students, I can offer particular insight into how to best write and get arguments across.

Spanish Classes in Maastricht. Conversation and Grammar
Hello! My name is Valeria and I am from Perú. I am a native Spanish speaker that have 3 years of tutoring experience. I will make your Spanish better through many real-life examples, conversation and grammar exercises. In addition, I can assign you different materials (videos, books, podcasts, etc) that will complement the learning process and make you more interested and motivated. My goal is to understand the expectations of my students in order to customize the classes and satisfy their needs. Moreover, I strongly believe that when you start learning a new language, you get to know more about the culture. In this sense, you will learn and improve your Spanish and also get to know about the Latin culture without having to travel there.

French lessons online or at students' location (individual or in mini-groups)
French lessons to teens and adults for different levels from beginners A1 till experienced C1. I've been teaching face-to-face, via Skype or Zoom and work also with mini groups. Giving mostly explanations in French and in English, Dutch can also be used a little. Normally I use communicative method in teaching, considering it the most efficient, as well as video, audio materials and different playing activities and digital tools. Besides, I would be happy to help you with any grammar issues, translations or assignments.

VBA training (Excel, Word, Access, Outlook) with practical remote sessions
VBA is a tool that is easily accessible to people and can take productivity, accuracy to levels beyond imagination. When the data and the complexity of the projects are not very big to fit into fancy computer applications, VBA comes into the picture to get things done efficiently with satisfying results. Some of the (VBA-based) projects that I have personally undertaken in the past include building financial and business models to simulate best / worst case scenarios, generating automated legal contracts with appropriate wordings and clauses based on inputs. specific. data by attachments or in the body of the mail, automated market analysis or financial analysis, data consolidation etc ... Based on the level, the training is designed to help and understand VBA and Macros and the power of building custom modules. To reinforce what is being taught there will be a few practice sessions with a problem statement or sample data / files.

Create fun games and interactive programs in Python (adults)
Python is easier to learn and understand than other programming languages. Its instructions are simple and easily readable with a clean syntax which doesn't really involve complex coding. However simple and easy to learn, Python can be used to create the highly interactive programs. This course aims to engage learners with little or even no previous programming experience. The programme for beginners starts with an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Python (expressions, conditionals, and functions). Then, as the course progresses, learners will be able to combine Python commands and modules like Pygame, Matplotlib, Numpy and Tkinter to implement their ideas and develop skills like computational thinking, creativity and problem solving. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Introduction to Japanese: The Kana booster (hiragana & katakana)
こ ん に ち は (Hello) That's it you decided to seriously learn Japanese to get closer to your goal? How to learn a new language when you have passed the stage of childhood? Do you fear oblivion or retrogression? When you learn the Japanese alphabet in high school or university, it takes between 3 to 6 months to anchor the learning of hiragana and katakana. I know this frustration of not going fast enough to then be able to read it, write it, understand it and speak it! Forget the romaji which are a real obstacle to learning Japanese even if I understand that it is a comfortable benchmark for learners. I created "the Kana booster" to support you in your first steps towards the Japanese language: - Discovery of Japanese characters - Pronunciation of the alphabet - Introduction to the writing system - Maintenance of the syllabary thanks to memorization - Kana challenge I had to learn hiragana like you in several months. On the other hand for the katakana, I only had 15 days to memorize them before my Japanese school year! This is why I have compiled my knowledge and know-how for you! I have my little tips and my personal methods so that you can acquire the basics to pursue your passion! *Who should attend ?* Pure beginners or those who need to refresh their memories or people who have lost their motivation as well as those who want to start / start again on good foundations! * How does the course actually work? * In 30 minutes we dynamically do the alphabet line by line. A real exchange between the learner and me. I reveal the errors and correct them. I give keys on the traps to avoid. We see the alphabet in all its forms in different approaches. Finally we take stock at the end of the lesson. * And what about my methodology? * With 6 years of language teaching with a different learner profile and around the world, then after working in South Korea and Japan with companies that prioritize education, I developed my vision and the tools necessary for the proper development of the learning of a foreign language for non-Aboriginal people. Being a teacher / student, I test myself what I offer. it allows me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my media in order to improve the content and aim for excellence. For learning this course is suitable for young and old, I speak French, English and Japanese fluently so I can teach the course in these languages. * What does my rate include? * "Kana's booster" is at its launch price. This is a "boost" course to help you learn faster and save you time! Once mastered, you can easily assimilate other notions of the Japanese language and be one step ahead of others. By choosing me, you can always be in contact with me and ask me questions about your problems (even outside the course) Send a course request and let's practice together! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

Greek lessons for home tuition! You learn writing and speaking Greek with me via Skype or Zoom!
Easy and comfortable private Greek-speaking and writing classes with Skype simply from home for everyone who wants to learn greek! I am a great experienced believer in speaking the language right from the start of your language learning journey. Many people have the attitude that first, they must learn all the grammar and huge amounts of vocabulary before they could ever be ready to start to get in a conversation with native speakers. People are often scared of getting into awkward situations where they have no clue how to express what they want to say, leaving them only with blank expressions on their faces. This is completely the wrong mindset and I’m here to help! With my experience in language learning and teaching, I can teach you to speak and write with confidence in Greek. With conversations, stories, audios, worksheets, flashcards, and speaking together progress is made successfully! My classes are concentrated on writing speaking, listening, and understanding. They are tailor-made and can be specialized for travel, business, or school. I am looking forward to meeting you! Angenehmer Griechisch Kurs im Internet mit Skype einfach von Zuhause aus für alle die entspannt und nebenbei schnell & effektiv lernen möchten! Mit meine Erfahrung im Erlernen und Lehren von Sprachen kann ich Dir selbstbewußt griechisch sprechen und schreiben beibringen. Mein Unterricht konzentriert sich auf das Schreiben, Sprechen, Zuhören und Verstehen. Mit Geschichten lesen, Arbeitsblättern, Flashkarten und gemeinsamen Gesprächen werden Fortschritte sicher und erfolgreich erzielt. Ich freue mich auf dich!

Klaudia
Scary class for adults with low-bandwidth contact, very flexible.
Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.
