Joris

Haringey Tutor

My name is Joris, I am 26 years old and originally from The Netherlands, bilingual in Dutch and English. I did my undergraduate at the University of Utrecht’s honours college, in The Netherlands, where I graduated magna summa cum laude. After this I went on to do a Master's degree in physics at the University of Cambridge. I am currently in the final year of an Experimental Physics PhD at the University of Cambridge.

Tutoring Experience

I previously taught mathematics and physics at GSCE and A-level in The Netherlands.

Tutoring Approach

I like to encourage the student to try a problem (or translation), so that I can analyse their approach and where their abilities may fall short. Afterwards, I give instruction on relevant topics, and then attempt a similar question and look for improvement. I provide help when the student gets stuck, but do not solve the problems for them. This is crucial, as otherwise the knowledge of the subject is never properly consolidated. I like to create a lesson plan spanning several weeks or months, and all my lessons are based on workbooks recommended by the relevant exam boards.
