IB English, TOK, IB History, and Essays/Research Skills

Professional IB tutoring with a twist:

I provide flexible student-focused tutoring specializing in IB English, IB History, assignment and exam prep, Extended Essay, and TOK. Additionally, I have extensive experience with the MYP Programme, and I am happy to tutor MYP 1-5 students. I mainly focus on skill development (essay writing, research, and critical thinking), but I can provide content-based lessons if required.

I have been a qualified teacher since 2012 and a TOK Examiner for the IB since 2017. The twist? I took a break from teaching to get my Ph.D. I am currently in the second year of my doctoral studies at Utrecht University. In that time, I worked as a legal researcher on human rights at the UN, was invited as an academic consultant to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and published more than five research papers. I, therefore, provide the knowledge and skills of a teacher, examiner, IB Core coordinator, and professional researcher while being a student myself.

Additional qualifications:

IB geography

Certified to teach middle to high school levels in Ontario, Canada

Certified to teach in the Netherlands in the international sector

Flexible teaching style based on teaching in Central Asia, East Asia, Europe, and North America

About Me

I am a certified teacher with ten years of experience. My approach to tutoring is to focus on individual student needs. Specifically, I aim to develop skills that are transferable to other subjects. This is one of the things I love about English literary studies. Sure, learning about literature might not be directly applicable to the job market, but critical thinking and analysis skills are essential across the curriculum and for university.

I primarily tutor for the IB. I know how much pressure IB students—especially Diploma students—are under. I am here to make that process easier and to help demystify the curriculum, which can be convoluted to students and parents (especially TOK). That said, I think the IB is perhaps the best curriculum for preparing students for university and life. That is why I have dedicated most of my middle and high school teaching carrier to the IB. That said, I have taught in the Australian and Canadian systems, so I am flexible.

I prefer to work via webcam as I am busy with my studies; I am in the middle of my P.h.D. This means I too am working on essays and research skills.

Math or Physics Tutoring with a dose of fun (Online or in Utrecht)
Hey! Do you have troubles with homework/school or just understanding basic concepts? Or your kids need some extra training to be the best of the best? I would love to be of help. In my online classes, we have discussions and watch videos to figure out what exactly is the missing link to supreme confidence in the subject. And ofcourse, solving problems is taken seriously to gain mastery. Usually my classes are in advance of what is going on in school. This helps the student be prepared in advance for the class. Normal routine can also be followed on the other hand.

Marcela Rivera
Spanish and English lessons. You will have fun learning languages.
I remember when I was a student. I used to get bored at school, and I don't want my students to feel the same. So prepare to have during the lessons either in Spanish or English. One of my teaching strategies is to make the students like their classes and languages. And also show them in what way this is important for their futures. I like to create a friendly environment, where students can feel confident and relaxed when the time comes for them to produce. In my opinion, this environment that I create is the most important in the learning process.

English Writing & Composition: For University and Work
Learning the fundamentals of writing and composing English text can help you advance in your studies and professional career, especially if you deal with international communication, academic research, or public speaking. The principles taught here apply to any modern language. This class is designed to develop students' understanding of professional writing, academic language, essays, proposals, critical analysis, and stylistic structures. The focus is primarily on grammar, structures, arguments, audiences, purpose, context, and formatting (where necessary). In addition, you will have the chance to explore the basics of literary analysis. I live in the Netherlands and study in the USA (by distance-learning methods). I also work as a writer and editor for several American and British corporations, which helps me stay up to date with the evolution of the English language. Usually, my students are university students, but I am willing to help anyone who wants to improve their linguistic skills.

English, Spanish and Catalan Private Tutoring and Conversation
I have taught English professionally for three years, from kids to adults, at an English academy. I have got a Cambridge certified C2 level, and I specialise in tutoring English for school and for Cambridge exams, especially the FCE and the CAE. I have also taught conversation classes as I have got an impeccable British accent. Spanish and Catalan, on the other hand, are my native languages and I have been studying and speaking them since I was a child. I especially offer conversation lessons, but I can obviously help with school work. My classes are for people who want a one-to-one class in which to start learning or to improve English, Spanish or Catalan. I am very flexible and I adapt to the necessities of the student; homework, progress reports and exams are possible.
