About me

Hey! I am a PhD student in Mathematical Sciences at Durham University. My research lies at the intersection of differential geometry and measure theory. I love when abstract concepts are made clearly seen through motivated examples. I was born in Belgium. After many years spent in the UK, my English became fluent but you might notice a funny accent from time to time. Don't be scared, the language of Science is universal ;)

About my sessions

In Mathematics as in many other subjects, the key to succeed is to attain familiarity both with the theory and the practise.

First of all, a typical lesson will start with identifying the strength and weakness of the student in the topic studied. We will go then over the key concepts, the adequate formulas and the meaningful proofs to make sure the theory is well-understood by the student. Next, I will suggest to activate the student's knowledge through relevant exercises. In this p...

In Mathematics as in many other subjects, the key to succeed is to attain familiarity both with the theory and the practise.

First of all, a typical lesson will start with identifying the strength and weakness of the student in the topic studied. We will go then over the key concepts, the adequate formulas and the meaningful proofs to make sure the theory is well-understood by the student. Next, I will suggest to activate the student's knowledge through relevant exercises. In this part, we might practise on exercises owned by the student (past tests, exos from a syllabus, ...) or I can provided original content that will consistent with its goals. By the end of the lesson, I can give the student supplementary exercises that he might want to do on his own.


Obviously, I am very flexible. One student might need only a quick recap of his theory or need only some new exercises or even maybe just go through a past paper exam.
