About Hendrik

In June 2015, I retired after teaching high school physics, chemistry and math for over 30 years; I taught in various high schools in the Twin Cities for most of that time, after which my wife and I lived and taught in international schools in Peru, Jordan and Panama. I have Minnesota certification in Life and Physical Sciences, as well as English as a Second Language. Since last fall I have been tutoring science and math high school and GED students and volunteering in after school homework help sessions for Minneapolis Public School students. I have experience teaching both IB and AP Physics and Chemistry as well as a great deal of experience working with second language learners. I speak Spanish at a high intermediate level and especially enjoy working with Spanish speaking students.

I love tutoring because it allows me to really get know my students and help them master the particular aspects of the science or math course they are struggling with. I appreciate how difficult these courses can be for some students and thus am very patient with them.

I worked for three years at a High School as a sheltered ESL teacher and have a lot of volunteer experience working with adult ESL students.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I am a recently retired high school physics, chemistry and math teacher with 31 years of classroom experience. I have taught very basic ESL science and math all the way up to IB and AP Physics and Chemistry classes. I speak pretty decent Spanish and enjoy using it whenever it helps clarify a problem. I enjoy working with high school students and am very patient!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Hendrik developed a good rapport right away with my teenage daughter. He explained the material in a way that was very understandable to her and seemed very knowledgeable with the subject.
