Mavi
Science tutoring for children and teenagers: IGCSE, IB, and GCSE
I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!

Farah

Explore the fascinating worlds of biology and chemistry (GCSE level) without getting bored. I will use engaging lessons to help students grasp complicated long biology lessons into short, fun and interesting concepts. Students will develop a solid understanding of the foundations of these subjects that they can apply when flickering through that exam paper. I'll be your trusty guide through this jungle of knowledge, ensuring that you not only survive but thrive with a solid understanding of the basics :)

Georgina
Science , Chemistry, Biology ,Public Health and Health Basics
Once upon a time, I found science, math and health courses a bit tricky, just like you might. But guess what? I didn't let that stop me. Instead, I turned the tough parts into stepping stones for success. I figured out a way to understand science and math by breaking them into smaller, easier parts. It wasn't always easy, but I didn't give up. Those challenges became the basis for my journey to success. Now, imagine this: I'm not just a tutor; I'm someone who conquered the subjects that once seemed really hard. Science, math, and health-related courses became my friends in life, leading me to a place where I want to help you succeed. I know what it's like, and I know we can do this together. Let's make your learning journey a story of success

Viswambher
Physics / Science / Mathematics tutor - IGCSE / IB MYP and DP
I am an interactive teacher with 5 years of experience. My teaching style is friendly and open, yet clear and direct. I incorporate a variety of materials, interactive simulations, and conceptual learning whenever possible. My abilities in education are exceptionally strong and continually improving with each tutoring session. Due to the previous situation with Covid, online teaching has become second nature to me, and I am delighted to assist you in your online learning journey. Teaching Methodology: To effectively teach a student, it is not sufficient to merely take notes or review the same material repeatedly. Students need time to connect concepts by approaching subjects from various angles. Making learning interesting in a classroom setting requires practice and skill, and I have been honing these abilities over the years, constantly seeking improvement as both a teacher and a learner myself!

Anusha
Maths, science, test preparation, and school support
I have the curiosity and eagerness to learn. It gives me a natural ability to teach because I believe only a good student can be a good teacher. I have tutoring experience in the past. I have completed my graduation in engineering. On the professional front, I am a banker. I moved to the Netherlands and am currently on a break. I would love to indulge in my passion for teaching. I can teach school level Math and Science. My goal is to keep students challenged to learn new things. I will be tutoring whatever is required for the school syllabus along with extra information or facts to make learning fun. Test preparation and tutoring for exams can also be done.I cook Indian dishes on a regular basis and would love to teach Indian-style cooking to people who are interested. Every student is different and I will take extra care to have tailor-made classes for each person. I create presentations, use assignments, and prepare before each class. Time is important and I do not want to waste yours. You can message me regarding the classes or your needs. I will make sure to do my best.

Sylvain
Private lessons in maths - physics - bio - methodology
Having obtained my Engineering degree in June 2018 and currently working as a Software Engineer in an IT company, I want to share my knowledge acquired during my studies with people of all ages in the Brussels region. My goal is to help my students approach the subject from a different angle so that they feel more comfortable and confident. I adapt my lessons to everyone by combining theory, exercises and practical examples. This period is ideal for getting up to speed and possibly adopting a new work methodology. This can allow you to consolidate your bases for the coming year or to prepare in the best possible way for a catch-up session. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Courses in biology and related subjects, by an experienced biology teacher and scientist
I have a doctorate in molecular and cellular biology. I am a high school biology and practical work teacher with many years of experience in laboratory research and the pharmaceutical industry. I offer support for courses in different subjects related to biology (microbiology, cell biology, biochemistry...). I rely on the student's course documents. The sessions are organized according to the student's needs and questions.

Romily
Maths, Chemistry and Biology for any level up to GCSE or Equivalent
I believe that it is important that each session is tailored to the individual. Sessions will begin with a brief introduction to the topic and a task which will allow me to gauge the current working level and to establish strengths and weaknesses in the area. My experience as a tutor allows me to make quick, informed decisions about how to adapt the session in order to achieve maximum progress. I always make sure that I have read and understood the relevant exam board specification to ensure that I deliver the information and skills required for exam success. I strongly feel that engagement, encouragement and enjoyment are essential for acquiring, understanding and retaining new skills and knowledge. Therefore, my sessions will be interactive and include progressive tasks allowing application and practice. I try to make my tutees comfortable in my sessions through reassurance and communication, with us both asking questions throughout the session - I am ready to explain things in different ways until it is understood!
