All instructors that work for GMAT Amsterdam are experts in the field of the GMAT exam. They have a background in mathematics, physics, management, economics, business or the English language and know how to teach. All instructors know the study materials for the GMAT well and know how to help when students don’t understand certain questions or topics.
Meet our instructors:
My name is Jasper Reinders and I am 32 years old. I studied mathematics and physics at the University of Amsterdam, where I also worked as a teacher for seminars. I am the head instructor of GMAT Amsterdam and developed the study material for all of the different courses. I have been deepening my knowledge about the GMAT in order to be able to help others with this often difficult test. Helping people understand what they first did not understand makes me feel satisfied. We at GMAT Amsterdam are experts in the GMAT; not only in content but also in learning strategies and preparations. With our experience in accompanying students to the GMAT, we learned how to help GMAT participants with their specific preparations.
My name is Iris Huisman and I’m 24 years old. I hold a Bachelor’s in Language and Communication and a Master’s in Intercultural Communication. At GMAT Amsterdam, I’m responsible for the contact with clients, organisation of the courses, the development of new ideas and the quality guarantee. I enjoy informing people about the GMAT and giving them personal advice that suits their aims and situation. Knowing that we help people to achieve their best possible GMAT score is what makes my work satisfying to me.
My name is Tom Stukart and I am 27 years old. I hold a Bachelor’s in Italian Language and Culture and a Master’s in Language and Education, both from the University of Amsterdam. I am currently following a Bachelor’s to become an English secondary school teacher. The English language is a great passion of mine. I read a lot of English books and the linguistic (almost mathematical) side of languages fascinates me. I love teaching because I believe it is very rewarding to help people understand languages better.
My name is Marco Stoffelen and I am 31 years old. I hold a Master’s degree in physics and have worked as a teacher at GMAT Amsterdam for five years, after having achieved a 780 score. I also work as a mathematics and physics teacher at an international school in Amsterdam. What I like about teaching is the appreciation you get when you help students understand a problem. That moment when they start understanding what I am trying to explain satisfies me.
My name is Rens Dudink. I am 23 years old and I studied mathematics. I have worked as a teacher at GMAT Amsterdam for 3,5 years. Because of my background in mathematics, I feel this job suits me very well. Every student has struggles with a different part of the GMAT, and this makes the classes very diverse. I find it challenging to help as many students as possible.
I am Youri Steenbergen, 22 years old and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration. I have taken the GMAT in order to do a master in Finance & investments at the Erasmus University and reached a score of 690. It really motivates me to be able to impact people and see them grow. I also find it interesting to teach students and help them overcome the same difficulties that I had myself during my preparation.
My name is Tom Corten and I am 21 years old. I am currently in my final year of Econometrics and Operations research at the VU University. Before I stared working for GMAT Amsterdam I worked as a fitness instructor and a private mathematics tutor. I really enjoy seeing my students improving their skills. Every student is different and I like to find out together which is the best way for them to solve GMAT problems.
My name is Jodi Melland and I am 32 years old. I have been an English teacher in South Africa for the past 9 years, and I have taught a variety of age-groups and levels. I am passionate about teaching and have a love of learning, and when students begin to love the process and to gain new knowledge, I feel I have succeeded! I also have a background in Dance and Dramatic Arts, so living in Amsterdam is the perfect cultural experience for me.
Hi, my name is Olivier Teng. I’m 23 years old and currently pursuing a Master in Aerospace engineering. Previously, I was a homework tutor focusing on mainly mathematics and physics. I like solving the Quant problems, and then comparing different methods the students come up with. It’s interesting to see how everyone has different approaches. I like to share my knowledge and appreciate the moment when my students realise it all makes sense.
