About us


Philosophy and mission

Our mission is to help students get up to speed and to teach them skills from which they will benefit the rest of their lives.

We all want our children to go to school feeling confident and able to show what they are capable of. This goal is central to our mission.

We believe that no child is the same and that is why each individual child is central to our approach. We adapt our methods to the needs of each individual student, not the other way around.

With well guided, hard work and fun, we make it happen together!

Reviews of our students

Do you want to apply?

Omdat we kwalitatief hoogwaardige cursussen willen bieden aan onze leerlingen, stellen we hoge eisen aan onze Remedial Teachers en docenten. Daarentegen is het niet nodig om ervaring te hebben met het geven van (bij)les, omdat je als nieuwe docent een uitgebreid opleidingstraject bij ons volgt.

Studeer je aan de UVA, VU of andere universiteit en sta je bovengemiddeld goed, mail dan je c.v. met cijferlijst en we nemen contact met je op. Een referentiecheck en Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag maken onderdeel uit van de sollicitatieprocedure.
