Math, English, and Test Prep Tutoring (SAT, GRE, and TOEFL)

I specialize in tutoring math and English for school and the SAT, GRE and TOEFL exams. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports. I also keep a record of what we have done for each class.
My students improve greater than 150 points on average once they can master the main concepts. Many of them have gone on to attend top universities around the world.

Reviews (1)

So far the experience on apprentus and the teacher I met is nice!
I specialize in tutoring and preparing Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus AB+BC for the AP and also the IB exam. My goal is to improve problem solving ability of each of my students and also to increase their long term memory retention of learning materials. I assign homework after every session, schedule periodic review sessions and quizzes, and provide succinct progress reports. I have many satisfied students, many of which have gone on to attend top universities around the world.
Studying medicine can be a tough and exhausting journey. I can mentor you to get accepted into medical schools and can also teach you medical school classes, build a strong and solid foundation by teaching you how to break down difficult topics into manageable chunks so that you can absorb them easily. Be willing to work hard and to turn your learning into a fun-filled journey. All ages welcome. I can work with you up to 8 hours per day, 7 days a week. Great results are guaranteed if you are willing to work together with me.
I am a native German speaker and can teach A1 to C1 level. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. You will learn important and also interesting study strategies that will help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing. I usually assign homework after every lesson and keep a record of what we've done and will do for the next lesson. My quizzes and tests will keep you focused on your goal and not a source of discouragement.

Leuke en interactieve les Engels-IELTS/TOEFL exam preparation
Als je Engels wil leren of jouw Engels wil verbeteren, ben ik misschien de juiste leraar voor jou. Ik bied gepersonaliseerde lessen aan die leuk, interactief en gebaseerd zijn op wat mijn studenten nodig hebben en willen leren. Ik doe dit door middel van een verscheidenheid aan activiteiten om u stap voor stap te helpen uw vaardigheden op te bouwen; inclusief onder andere rollenspellen (gebaseerd op real-life situaties), Q & A's en games. Het doel is om je aan het praten te houden! De lessen worden vooral in het Engels gegeven, hierdoor kun je tijdens de les zoveel mogelijk Engels leren en oefenen. Maak je geen zorgen over het maken van fouten; door fouten te maken en ervan te leren word je zelfs beter. Herhaling is een belangrijk onderdeel van mijn lessen. Ik ga vaak terug om te controleren of je je nog herinnert wat in voorgaande lessen is geïntroduceerd. Ik bied ook lessen aan die gericht zijn op de voorbereiding op internationale examens Engels zoals de IELTS en TOEFL. Voordat we met onze lessen beginnen, wil ik weten wat jouw redenen zijn om Engels te leren. Als je al enige kennis van het Engels hebt zal ik bepalen wat jouw exacte niveau is. Zodra ik weet wat jouw behoeften, interesses en niveau zijn, kan ik de juiste materialen selecteren en de juiste cursus voor jou ontwerpen. We kunnen werken met een leerboek (plus extra materiaal) of met mijn eigen lesmateriaal. Ik maak gebruik van video's, dia's, werkbladen en ander lesmateriaal. Als je het leuk vindt, kan ik je ook oefeningen en bronnen per e-mail sturen, zodat je zelfstandig kan blijven leren. Bij twijfel kun je mij altijd bereiken via e-mail of WhatsApp. Onze lessen kunnen online zijn (met Zoom, Skype of een platform naar keuze), of ik kan bij jou thuis komen (in Haarlem, Velserbroek, Santpoort-Zuid, Santport-Noord, Driehuis, Beverwijk, IJmuiden of Overveen). De lessen kunnen een-op-een zijn of in een kleine groep.
