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.

Valeria Azabache
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.

CLEP Exam Biology Preparation with Experienced Teacher
Hi everyone! I have been teaching private courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics for 9 years. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. When I won the Anatolian Teacher High School in Istanbul in 2008 and Boğaziçi University in 2012, my biggest goal was to be a reliable role model for my students in the future. I am very happy that I have now made this dream come true since the year I entered university. Until this time, I have taught private lessons at secondary, high school and university level to numerous students from Turkey and abroad. I still continue to give private lessons on the online platform and teach Physics at an International School in Istanbul where California Education Standards (Cognia) are adopted. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. I am currently teaching for SAT Exam Preparation. SAT Subject Tests includes Physics, Math, Chemistry and Biology. I can teach both IB and American Curriculum as well. I teach my lessons on Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom, depending on the student' request. Inquiry Based Learning which I have adopted as a teaching method; it enables me to teach lessons based on inquiry and always keeping the student & teacher dialogue dynamic. I strive to progress depending on the age and level of the student. For this, I aim to explain myself, the way I study and understand my student's expectations and level. After the level has been determined, it is of great importance for me that the student knows the lesson plan and draft as well and adheres to the jointly agreed schedule. I share pdfs and documents that I have prepared before the class and use the books by Pearson, Serway, Nowicki, Sarquis and so on for University & Secondary School Level. For Middle School, I use HMH Science Modules etc. I do emphasize the importance on giving homework/assignment and return as giving ''feedforwards'' for my students. As someone in love with her job, it is my greatest motivation to direct the students to professions they can do with love. In this course, you will be able to learn following contents: Ch 1. Introduction to Organic Chemistry Ch 2. Cell Biology Ch 3. How Enzymes Work Ch 4. Basics of DNA & RNA Ch 5. Process of DNA Replication Ch 6. The Transcription and Translation Process Ch 7. Basics of Gene Mutations Ch 8. Basics of Metabolic Biochemistry Ch 9. Overview of Cell Division Ch 10. Plant Biology Ch 11. Plant Reproduction and Growth Ch 12. Physiology I: The Circulatory, Respiratory, Digestive, Excretory, and Musculoskeletal Systems Ch 13. Physiology II: The Nervous, Immune, and Endocrine Systems Ch 14.

The Study of Life On Earth Ch 20. Classification of Organisms Overview Ch 21. Social Biology Ch 22. Analyzing Scientific Data

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.

Eleni
Language Lessons(English & Greek) offered private or in a group(off/online)
English and Greek lessons offered private or in groups. My teaching method is teaching you the language as if it is your native one. What I find most important is that you can speak the language you are willing to learn, fluently. Learning a language can be difficult but when you find a fun way to do it, that also works for you, then it is fun and easy! Together we will discuss about your goals and together we will assign goals and complete them! I can also help students prepare for their exams. I also offer lessons in a more intensive way, if you want to get to a high level really fast. My lesson is interactive and I always try to keep it fun! The lesson is offered both online and physically!
