My name is Anais and I am an international student from Spain studying my BSc in General Engineering at DTU. I am an energetic and independent person who enjoys learning more than anything else. The time I spend alone I devote it to reading mostly anything (but specially philosophy) or listening to music, which I love. Moreover, when being accompanied I deeply enjoy practicing my favorite sports (football and surf), hiking or camping, and making fun plans or trying out new foods.
Academically, I have completed my pre-university education (Spanish Science Baccalaureate) with perfect scores in all subjects so I am able to teach Spanish and English and almost any other subject if it's taught in those languages (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry or Biology).
From my perspective, to enjoy learning new things and being passionate about them is the greatest gift one can have, but there are times when students feel very unmotivated and don’t see any purpose in learning a new subject. We have all been there, I am a student too, and it is specially difficult to overcome this if you feel like you’re putting the effort but you don’t see the results you were expecting. That is where I come in.
I am known for being a very empathic person and I believe this is the most essential of a teacher's qualities. I don’t think my purpose as a tutor is solely to teach someone an entire subject, but also to make them find pleasure in the learning process and teach them how to learn effectively by themselves. That is, supplementing the teaching and the actual work on theory and exercises with advice on how to study effectively and how to stay motivated. As I said before, I am a student too, and I think my grades reflect that my study methods do work. However, every student is a world of its own and what works for me might not work for someone else. Therefore, it is essential for me to get to know my student and the difficulties they’re facing, and then working on a strategy from there.
