My specialist subjects are Maths and Physics but I also teach German.
I am passionate about the subjects I study and enjoy sparking enthusiasm in others. Having tutored students from a diverse range of backgrounds gives me ample experience in different teaching methods and approaches. By building relationships with my tutees, I feel submerged in their endeavours and take pride in their success. I appreciate that overcoming difficulties requires patience, effective communication, and especially a flexible approach.
I finished my Masters in Civil Engineering at University College London. I spent my year abroad at Columbia University in New York and went to Munich International School for my International Baccalaureate.

Tutored IB math SL for 2-3 hours a week for two months leading up to the resits.
Tutored IB Physics SL and Math Studies intensively for 4 hours a day for one week during a residential job.
Tutored IB Physics and Math standard level twice a week. Achieved a 5 and a 6 respectively.
Organised tutorials to help with IB Math Higher Level for three months in their final year. All students achieved a 5 or higher.
Prepared weekly tutorial sessions throughout one full academic year that were aimed to help students with their transition into University life, and help them to learn independently. Additionally, topics from UCLs First Year Civil Engineering Modules were covered, but emphasis was put on Maths and Structural Analysis.
Worked on problem sets and mock exams for modules including Soil Mechanics, Structural Analysis and Fluid Dynamics. Sessions took place throughout exam periods for two academic years. Went from a predicted 2.2 to a high 2.1.
Hobbies and Interests
I am passionate about traveling and have spent three months independently backpacking throughout Australia during my gap year. I seek out opportunities to explore new places and meet new people. Driven by the determination to travel, I raised the money for this trip myself. Moreover, I have always loved skiing, having grown up so close to the Alps and still enjoy yearly skiing trips with family or friends. Having grown up in Germany, I am fluent in German as well as English and Dutch, and am currently studying French.
