About Me

I am a creative and enthusiastic Master's graduate with experience in scientific research, science communication and developing teaching materials for science education. I have strong interpersonal skills and hold a dedicated approach when performing any task.

I am currently looking for an opportunity to share my knowledge, and help anyone to improve not only their maths and science knowledge but provide tips and ticks that will help you with any future learning!

Education

Bachelors in Science - Cell and Molecular Biology, Newcastle University, UK - 2:1
Masters in Science - Cancer, Stem cells and Developmental Biology, Utrecht University, NL

Experience / Qualifications

My mother tutors English language to primary and secondary students in Hong Kong. I have assisted her with private tutoring as well as prepare lessons and mark homework set for students.

Moreover, I have taken several courses about how to communicate science, designing educational material for science subjects and have internship experience in developing an educational product for secondary school students about the plastic pollution problem.
Want to brush up on your science and/or maths? Need some extra explanation on those harder problems? Looking for someone who will patiently explain and go through concepts? I will take a patient approach when tutoring and encourage active participation. Include fun active learning material that will engage the student and apply science and mathematical concepts into real life situations; to stimulate their conceptual knowledge and set them problems to apply their new skills.

Vuoi parlare l'italiano? Italiano con Rob per tutti
Ciao, my name is Roberto :) 
I graduated in Political and Economic Science at the University of Milan. After working for a year for an American company in Milan, I moved to Australia, where I have worked, studied and traveled for two years.
It has been an incredible experience! I had the opportunity of visiting beautiful places, discovering so many different cultures and developed myself from a personal and professional point of view.
Since two years, I have been living in Haarlem - a wonderful city close to Amsterdam - and to the coast 🌊 - in the Netherlands. I love teaching and helping people to find out more about Italian culture, history, and arts. I would love to use all the modern techniques of teaching that I learned and practiced them with you. Teaching is an extraordinary passion! Parliamo italiano!

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.

Mina
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

Alexandra
Course for those who want to perfect their English
Hello! This course is aimed for those who already have a grasp on English, but would like to perfect their reading and writing abilities. I also can teach students for admissions exams in the US (such as SAT, GRE, MCAT) and in the UK (UCAT), especially focusing on the verbal reasoning abilities and writing. I am originally from the US, English being my native language, and although a biology student myself, have taken many reading and writing classes throughout my life, scoring well on admissions exams, and am willing to share my knowledge with you :) Let me know what help you need, and we can figure something out!

Modern Greek: an interactive online approach to master speaking, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary and grammar.
I specialize in teaching Greek to beginners and intermediate students, providing them the foundation to master this difficult language. I cover topics such as word order, grammar, spoken vs. written Greek, conversational and every day Greek, as well as spelling, writing, and pronunciation. Each class can be tailored to the students individual needs. This class is for anybody who just wants to improve speaking/writing, as well as for those just starting out. Lessons can be given online, or in person. Greek is a language that is increasingly spoken, and is useful in many aspects of life, including but not limited to: biology, geometry, medical terminology, etc. With Greece's economy growing, it is an ideal destination to move either as an expat, digital nomad, or as a startup company. I look forward to helping you on your journey of acquiring this language!

Morgan
Spanish and English teacher or tutor for all levels (Utrecht)
Spanish and English teaching or tutoring for any level. Both are in the top spoken languages in the world and have become essential for good communication and blurring cultural boundaries. Spanish is my official native language but I went to an American school during my entire education which means I speak both fluently. My goal is to keep students motivated while learning or improving their use of a new language. You can learn the basics of Spanish and English. The class can also be focused on specific subjects depending on the students level: whether they need more practice in speech or grammar; or their desire to learn something specific. I can help with everything from the alphabet to being able to write an essay or taking an exam.

Sergi
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.

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.

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.
