How tutoring with Ronald works

I like to help people with specific goals – usually, that’s working towards a mathematical test, or maybe an interview.

Most commonly, I tutor secondary school students in math (GCSE, A-Level, IB, university entrance). I also offer support for university-level and other work, including programming and statistics.

I usually recommend that we start with a one-hour session to discuss your goals and see if we work well together. We should also make progress towards those goals in the first hour! (I charge my normal price for this, since it’ll be worth it!)

Tutoring with me is one hour of teaching time each session (or more, on request!). The sessions are very student-led, so we work on whatever is useful to you in the moment. It often makes sense to keep up with classwork so that you can get the maximum benefit from your regular classes in school. We also keep a focus on what’s required for any exam or test that’s coming up, looking at potential test questions, and working on preparing efficiently for exams.

It makes sense to book a weekly session at a regular time – that way I can guarantee to keep the time available to you. Many students decide they want more or less sessions than this, and this can change as their studies progress – that’s fine too 😄

I work via the video meeting software Zoom, with my business account there. So, you will need to download and install Zoom (for free), if you don’t already have it. I will provide a link to our meeting with the confirmation of the first booking.

I personally use the app “GoodNotes” with an Apple Pencil to make handwritten notes and diagrams, and worked examples. I’ll share those notes on the screen with you, while we discuss them, so you can see exactly how best to make progress.

It’s helpful if you bring to the sessions:

  • something to write with,
  • something to write on,
  • the calculator you normally use during tests,
  • any work you want to look at together (images or photos of your own written work are super-useful!).

If you’d like to book a trial session, please e-mail maths@ronald.GL or WhatsApp +31682589013 to arrange!

Good luck with your studies!
