ExperienceI tutor GMAT, SAT, and high-school maths to students in and around Amsterdam. My approach to Math is that it is a language. Success depends on knowing the grammar and the vocabulary - a language, with synonyms and dialects and traditions from across the globe and from centuries ago. This facet is too-little emphasized by the conventional curriculum, and this lack of attention is at the root of the Math phobia and misunderstanding, for many students.
In my experience of tutoring, it is possible to facilitate an "accelerated re-creation" of the language. My single best achievement is being able to explain the concepts that all successful Mathematicians take for granted, and yet so few know to explain.
GMAT courses and SAT courses in Amsterdam may be organized upon request.
in-person tutoring rate is €80/hour.
HobbiesMy main mission in life is to love what I do and to grow as a person, and I love new information - especially when it's useful. I read and watch films and documentaries, and I love to hear what other people are working on. I am working on a book to re-introduce people to Mathematics, and I sleep less and less these days!

I came to Omer when i had to succeed in an entry test for the University. i am 40 years old, so it's been 22 years since i used Math, and i was scared as hell. Omer started by analyzing my problem, my lack of knowledge, and slowly built my confidence. after one month and about 5-6 meetings, i passed the exam with a score i didn't even dream was possible... I highly recommend Omer not only as a guy who knows about Math, but as someone who knows HOW to teach!.
Omer is a really good tutor! If you want to go into more depth on any subject you wish to (in my case math/GRE), Omer is your guy! He will really get you to understand what it is all about.. Also very important; Omer is patient! So if you think you're a screw-up when it comes to math... look no further ;)
