Greetings! My name is Arjun and I am studying Econometrics and operational research. Economics and mathematics have played a central role in my study programs and I am looking to sharing this knowledge with others. I scored in the top 5% for Economics and Mathematics, hence I believe I understand the core of these subjects and their methodology. One of my strengths is teaching in a systematized manner. That is, I take into consideration the concept and questions related to it, to find a clear way of explaining it. I would also apply various strategies based on the type of student and ensure focusing on getting good marks, as well as a perfect understanding of the concepts. Step by step teaching and patiently handling stuff would be my key tools, as well as going forward as and when desired in accordance with the student.
Hello! My name is Subha and I am from India. I have done my Bachelor’s degree in Physics with Mathematics as my elective subject and also done my Bachelor of Education from India. I have had the passion of teaching from my childhood. It gives me immense happiness when I see I am able to contribute something to a child’s development. I have worked as a teacher in various schools in India before motherhood and subsequent relocation to The Netherlands happened. Teaching for me is a continuous learning process where I learn how to adapt changes in my way of teaching. Each child is different and hence the approach to teach them also varies.
Hello! I am Malavika and I am doing my masters in Astronomy at Leiden University. I have an Electrical Engineering degree. Being new to academia, I soon realised that conveying science is just as important as doing it. Teachers have the privilege to convey science and I want to be a part of it. Sometimes it is easy to miss the context behind the learning. I want to try to fill this gap and hope to make learning science interesting and fun. In this dynamic process, I not only intend to help the student but also learn to be a better teacher myself. My area of interest is Math and Physics, and I have had some experience teaching before. As a student myself I also want to help another student achieve clarity in realising his/her interest either in science or otherwise.
Hi there! My name is Anita and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Aerospace Engineering at the TU Delft.

"Hello, I am Nurseda and I have graduated from the international school Rijnlands Lyceum located in Oegstgeest. Since Chemistry, Biology, and Maths were my favorite subjects, I have decided to complete my studies related to these topics. After having received my IB diploma, I completed my Bachelors in Bio-pharmaceutical Sciences at Leiden University. While searching for a master I want to share my knowledge with others. I believe that being familiar with the international school system allows me to better relate to these students. For me it is very important to go through things step by step, since every detail – even basic ones – can be very important in a learning process. Having had the experience with some teachers who neglected this and assumed their students already knew the details, I would like to contribute to bringing about a change. Not everyone that knows much about a subject, can explain it in a clear way. It is the ability to explain well that makes a teacher a good teacher."
"Hello, My name is Oana and I am a master student in Engineering and Policy Analysis with a background in Computer Science. I have chosen the path of computers and engineering due to my early passion for mathematics in school. Even now, with every new topic I learn, I am still amazed by how much mathematics has the power to shape the world around us and our understanding of it. I believe a good teacher knows how to convey both the abstract, the practical and the fun side of mathematics. And they should do it with enough patience and creativity to allow the students to be engaged and develop their own reasoning path. These are qualities I aim for when assisting students in learning this complex but fascinating topic."
“Hello! My name is Melda, I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Law at Leiden University. Originally, I am from Turkey, but I was born and raised up in the Netherlands. In the past, I gave Dutch lessons to many, including refugees and pupils from the primary school. What I like about a language is that it is connected with culture. If you want to learn Dutch, you need more than understanding grammar and the technical side. By learning a language, you also will learn the culture from a different perspective. I am very passionate about teaching and I will continue as long as my students will understand the study material and gain results!”
