I am Ivona, 22 years old, from Macedonia and I will be starting a master degree in Renewable Energy Engineering in Freiburg in October. I graduated in Physics at Jacobs University Bremen, so my Physics and Math knowledge is pretty strong. I additionally graduated with special honors in my class.
My high school and university institutions were both English speaking. Thus, my English knowledge is almost to the level of a native speaker and I am able to tutor you or your child in this field as well. I can help with grammar, writing, reading, speaking, but also in English literature and spelling.
I have to mention that my German speaking skills on the other hand are very poor and I do not know the scientific terminology in German. Thus, I can only tutor in English, regardless if you are interested in improving your science or English knowledge.
ExperienceSo far, I haven't have a paid tutoring job, but I have always been helping my friends when they needed it - especially in earlier age. I like explaining and helping people. I believe I am patient and tolerant, so I do not get annoyed when the person does not get the concepts presented right away.

Other Jobs/Working experience:
2 internships in the field of Physics - one at the University of Heidelberg at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, the other one at ZARM (The Center for Applied Space Technology and Microgravity)in Bremen.
During my studies: I was working in the University Library. This job further developed my social and communication skills and taught me to efficiently help the people in getting what they require for their work.
Additional Achievements: Member of the President's List at Jacobs University Bremen. Criteria: cumulative GPA of 1.5 or better, according to the German grading system.
During high school: Math and Physics Competition. Most important award: First place on the National Physics Olympiad.
HobbiesMusic/Dance: I have played the piano for 6 years and attended a musical school. However, I am really more into dancing and I have danced in versatile styles over the years.
Sports: Running, Swimming, Chess: during my University studies I was part of the running club and I participated in various competitive races. I have participated also in chess tournaments in my high school.
Other Interests: Art, Architecture, Literature and Psychology. At my University I attended a workshop called "Peer Listening Project" where we worked on listening techniques in order to understand the problems of our peers and help them out when they come to seek our help.
Fun/Hobby: I am into puzzels and sudoku. I also like drawing, photography, writing and reading, but I also do not leave out movies or TV shows when I have the time to watch them.
Math: Algebra, Calculus, Pre-Calculus, Differential Equations (especially Ordinary Differential Equations), (Euclidean) Geometry, Trigonometry Physics: anything taught in high school; but also possible for courses at University level Chemistry: Inorganic at high school level SAT, SAT Math, TOEFL
