About Studiemeesters

Studiemeesters consists of a group of specialised, committed professionals with extensive experience. We have been offering effective study coaching to master’s and bachelor’s students since 2011. We also host a comfortable study hall where students can study and read in full concentration. We are located in Amsterdam, Eindhoven and Leiden, but we also offer our services Online.

Students looking to boost their performance often meet two challenges: they are limited by their procrastination habits and they do not have sufficient understanding of the material. These two challenges form a vicious circle: a procrastinator will never progress effectively and a student struggling with a task will put it off. This is why Studiemeesters coaches invest equally in substantive progress and motivation. Thanks to this combination, students cover a lot of ground within a short period.

Students are enthusiastic about our coaching. Read the uncensored reviews here.
