Hello!

I am originally German, but grew up internationally which is how I ended up doing the IB. After finishing the IB I spent several months in France which overall makes me fluent in German, English and French. Apart from languages I love maths, a subject I currently study as a module for my major in Economics at the University of St. Andrews.

I personally believe that every student is capable of understanding concepts if they are explained in an appropriate manner. Schools tend to explain subjects in one way, however it is often not catered to the individual or fails to motivate students to achieve their best. I try to adjust to students' individual learning styles, which has made me a popular tutor for my friends at uni.

I achieved 43 overall points in the IB and am also very willing to help with Extended Essays and TOK.

About my sessions

The structure of a lesson depends on the subject and the individual's level. Prior to a lesson I like to get in touch with students and identify the key difficulties, along with homework or class tests that have been provided. I will then work through specific problems with the students to get a better understanding of what concepts are mastered and which ones need improvement. After working through problems together, I ask students to explain the discussed concepts to me, as if I did not...

The structure of a lesson depends on the subject and the individual's level. Prior to a lesson I like to get in touch with students and identify the key difficulties, along with homework or class tests that have been provided. I will then work through specific problems with the students to get a better understanding of what concepts are mastered and which ones need improvement. After working through problems together, I ask students to explain the discussed concepts to me, as if I did not know them. That way I can ensure they have fully understood them.

In the case of foreign language lessons I offer running the lesson in French or German if that is desired. This is especially helpful when preparing for oral examinations.

In addition to specific concepts I like to provide efficient methods for studying, suitable for the individual and the subject.

I will provide an exact structure for the lesson once I have met the student, in order to find an efficient, motivating way of learning. Changes in the structure may occur over the course of several lessons, depending on the improvement of the student and possible examination preparations.
