Anita

Hi there! My name is Anita and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Aerospace Engineering at the TU Delft. I have a Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering (from India) and am very good with math and physics. I am creative, patient and have excellent communication skills which I think are a key to imparting knowledge. I believe that teachers have the precious opportunities to build a student’s self-concept, help shape a dream, provide direction and show them that they have worth and value and I would like to be that teacher. Teaching give me a deep sense of purpose and is the most satisfying.

 

Vaibhav

"Hello! I am masters student in Astronomy at Leiden University and completed my Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering from the Institute of Technology Kanpur. With the aim to help the community and share my love for science and maths, I joined RAA Indian National Invention Mission in my senior undergraduate year. The aim of this initiative is to nurture a spirit of inquiry, creativity, and love for science and mathematics among the school children. For this initiative, I demonstrated experiments and conducted lectures for both high school children and teachers. Apart from honing my teaching skills, the entire process turned out to be one of the most unique and extensive learning experience for me. I am looking forward to fulfil the task of helping my students advance and inculcating critical thinking skills in them."

 


Arisa

"Hello my name is Arisa,
After receiving my degree in Analytical Chemistry, I worked several years in secondary education in The Hague, 7 years at a biopharmaceutical laboratory, 2 years in a medical clinical lab, and since 2 years as a teacher in secondary vocational education. I am very passionate about chemistry, biology and mathematics, and I would love to share my passion for these subjects with young students. Science and mathematics are fascinating subjects, and students should be stimulated to learn about them through a sense of curiosity and excitement, and not just for grades. I believe that by explaining how science and mathematics is all around us combined with my experience and social and communicative skills, I can excite my students."

 

Nasxielly

"Hello! My name is Nasx and I am from México, I have a BA degree in Economics and certifications in finance and management. I have experience teaching and collaborating in courses about financial literacy in a very practical way, especially for children and young people. I really enjoy working in intercultural environment, promoting respect and understanding values and beliefs. For me the best way to explain something is when you make a student find a useful aim beyond the concept. I belief the new generation has a big challenge due to infinite sources of information and it’s necessary to guide them to develop focus and critical thinking."

 


Anna

"Hello, my name is Anna and I am in my third year of the International Bachelor of Psychology at Leiden University. Although I am Dutch, I have spent the majority of my life living abroad as an expat. Ever since I was young I have loved learning and I am passionate about a wide range of subjects, including biology, history, mathematics and various language courses. I believe that paired with my enthusiasm and passion about learning, I can guide students to achieve their full potential, and possibly even more."

 


Gabor

"Hi, my name is Gabor, a Hungarian-American, living in the Hague. I received my Bachelor degree in Business Administration from Florida International University. Soon after, I started my postgraduate studies in International Relations in Switzerland, first earning a Master, then Doctorate degree in International Relations. I had worked as an Associate Professor at the Geneva School of Diplomacy from 2006 to 2009, teaching a wide range of subjects, from economics to social sciences, mostly to Bachelor level students. I would consider teaching my true calling, the satisfaction that comes with sharing knowledge in a creative and encouraging way, positively influencing my students and trying my best to further their critical thinking."

Hi, my name is Britt and I am currently doing my Master’s in Dutch as a Second Language. Before this, I finished my Bachelor in Linguistics. I have experience in one-to-one teaching on a voluntarily basis, which I like to do, and that is why I want to start my teacher training after my master's. This year I'm doing an internship at an international oriented elementary school. By working at Astrea, I would like to develop my teacher skills even more and earn more experience in teaching. I would love to meet you and share my knowledge and enthusiasm for language learning!

"My name is Yasmin and I am currently completing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I am specialized in all aspects of business, including business organization, production, accounting, sales and marketing. Aside my experience in teaching languages and general high school courses I have always done well in recognizing my tutees’ potential to become great people and inspire them to be just that. I believe that every person is unique in his or her strengths and challenges hence it is the job of the tutor to foster highly individualized learning in response to the tutee. I am dedicated to the learners, with an unwavering commitment to their education and well-being. To teach is to touch a life forever."

Ré-Angelo

Hello there, my name is Ré-Angelo. Currently I am studying Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Leiden, where I also mentor first years students from my program. I am an open, kind and energetic person, who has always been keen on passing on knowledge to others. I especially enjoy when the proverbial penny has dropped and the student finally understands the concept. Ever since I was young I wanted to become a scientist and I was passionate about natural sciences such as physics, biology, and chemistry. I know how difficult it can be to understand abstract, but also non-abstract subjects. My aim is to make subjects easier to understand, but most importantly more fun to understand. I look forward to working with new students and help them, so that they can also make an impact on other students around them.

 

Vishal

“I am a Mechanical Engineer currently pursuing my Masters in Space Flight at Delft University. When I first came across Astrea, I recalled how much I loved my Physics and Math teachers from school. Over the years, working in project both at an academic and industry level, I enjoyed learning and sharing knowledge with my colleagues. The thirst for knowledge led by curiosity and enthusiasm is something I strongly believe should be the platform for learning anything. I would be immensely pleased to share this drive with a younger generation so that they can better understand and pursue their interests in making the future much better.”



Onur

"Mijn naam is Onur, wat hetzelfde betekent als ‘’honour’’ in het Engels. Ik heb mijn VWO afgemaakt met de profielen N&G en N&T. Ik studeer nu psychologie aan de Universiteit Leiden, omdat ik het menselijk gedrag en gedachtegang interessant vind. Het is leuk om daar kennis over op te doen en dat in sommige situaties te herkennen.
Naast mijn studie heb ik mij altijd bezig gehouden met mijn kennis en ervaringen overdragen aan kinderen, omdat zij dan gestimuleerd worden om te leren en het beste uit zichzelf kunnen halen. Dat doe ik nu voor Astrea!"

 


Arvind

"Hello, my name is Arvind.
I’m currently doing my PhD at TNO Delft. I did my Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering and Master’s in Physics from BITS Pilani (India). Over the past few years, I have some experience in training and supervising summer interns, undergraduate and master’s thesis students.  I am passionate about Physics and Mathematics, and would love to share my knowledge.
I strongly believe that each student is different, and that teaching has to be personal. Apart from good grades, I am interested in trying to make the student more creative in his/her thinking and guide them to be independent problem solvers. I would also help the student in figuring out their passion, and help them grow intellectually."

 


Vaishnavi

"Hello! My name is Vaishnavi and I recently graduated from Master's course in Chemical Engineering at TU Delft. I personally enjoy learning and teaching Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics to students, young and older.  Not only at academics, but I also aim to transfer learning enthusiasm, sharing the knowledge that I have at industrial level, and help with the personal development of students. From a great interest and passion towards science and with a belief in 'growing together', I wish to help as many students to gain a better understanding towards the above mentioned subjects, be able to think critically and independently and to ultimately enjoy their academics."
