Passionate about Sciences, Life Sciences in particular, I left France for South Africa in 2011 to complete a PhD in Biology-Zoology at the University of Cape Town. The many valuable interactions I had with my students at the university, demonstrating, supervising and lecturing revealed my love for teaching. While working with the French High School of Cape Town and with Herzlia High School (both prestigious private schools in Cape Town), I have developed a fun, creative and caring method of teaching Sciences to make sure you undestand the simplicity behind scientific concepts. On top of it, you will be able to learn some french at every lessons and to enjoy my accent! Passionnée par les Sciences, les Sciences de la vie en particulier, j’ai décidé de quitter la France en 2011 afin de poursuivre mes études doctorales en Afrique du Sud. Mon doctorat portait sur l’étude des sociétés animales. Cette expérience dans le domaine de la recherche m’a beaucoup apportée, c’était vraiment mon rêve d’enfance devenu réalité. Elle m’a aussi permis de me rendre compte de l’importance que j’accordais à l’éducation de notre future génération. La graine a commencé à germe grâce aux nombreuses interactions que j’ai eu avec les étudiants de l’université, en tant que superviseur ou professeur et mes expériences en tant que professeur de Sciences au Lycée Français du Cap et au Lycée Herzlia du Cap ont renforcé ce choix de me dédier à 100% à l’enseignement. Les élevés ont adorés mes cours ludiques et interactifs, ainsi que ma volonté de faire en sorte qu’ils comprennent plus qu’ils ne retiennent !

Oliver - Cape Town$55
Trusted teacher: .. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

I specialize in tutoring Piano and Music Theory privately. My goal is to create a love for playing the piano and to stimulate my students to want to learn more about the theory of music which will enable them to understand music better. I strive for assisting my students through teaching them in a manner that they will eventually understand enough to go on playing piano without the help of a teacher. I will help them to understand the different styles in music, the characteristics and how to strive for interpreting everything that is int the score and to play more than only the correct notes and rhythm. To MAKE MUSIC is my ultimate aim.

Hello, I am Denise from the beautiful city of Cape Town in South Africa. My Qualifications and Experience I am TEFL qualified, a native English speaking tutor, with 30-years of business experience. For 5 years, I have been coaching university students and business professionals working with them to improve their performance, targets and reach their professional goals. My business experience includes years of working as a PMO manager, Senior project manager, Vendor, and Resource manager in the financial services IT department of 1200 people. I have worked extensively in Marketing and for 11 years, I worked with the British Consulate in South Africa. Subject Expertise Otherwise known as the “language of opportunity,” a good command of the English language can boost career prospects, open up opportunities and enable success in business and with your clients. With years of business experience and knowledge, I can help you improve your Business English. My Approach My teaching approach is largely conversational. I encourage ACTIVE learning. I give prompt feedback and I use a variety of resources (Videos, Podcasts, Games, Quizzes and Authentic materials like business news and interesting articles) to make lessons more interesting. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with you.
Trusted teacher: I am currently a Tutor at Kaplan International College London at London Bridge. Apart from that, I am a fully Qualified Secondary School Teacher (Science). Over the last 10 years, I have been involved in Private Tuition in the areas of Mathematics and Physics for Exam/College Preparation as well as University Level Courses. I have experience in the UK (GCSE & A-Levels), the International Baccalaureate curriculum in Physics (SL/HL) and Mathematics (SL/HL), the Australian (Year11 & 12) School System as well as Oxbridge Admission tests (PAT/STEP). Furthermore, I have worked as an Academic Researcher (Theoretical Particle Physics). Professional Experience I am a full-time Private Tutor in Mathematics and Physics. A large part of my work is related to University Level tuition but also the last two grades of High School (exam preparation). From my placements in UK and Australia, I have extensive experience and knowledge in teaching 1st and 2nd-year Physics courses, such as Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics, Calculus, Statistics as well as more advanced 3rd and 4th-year subjects, such as Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Optics & Lasers, Particle Physics, Special and General Relativity, etc. Moreover, I have taught various topics in University Level mathematics, such as Calculus, Advanced/Multivariable Calculus, Algebra, Complex Analysis, Group Theory, Differential Geometry, Differential Equations, Mathematical Physics, etc. Furthermore, I have experience in the UK schooling system and currently work with a number of London based tutoring offices, teaching Physics and Mathematics for GCSE/iGCSE and A-Levels (AQA, CCEA, OCR, WJEC ). I also have experience in GRE Subject Tests (Physics and Mathematics) preparation as well as SAT and GMAT (Math/Quantitative/Analytic sections) Tutoring Approach My tutoring teaching methods are highly personalized and are based on result-oriented techniques that help students overcome learning barriers. An initial assessment/evaluation and subsequently a tuition plan is made. Given that feedback is essential, I continuously communicate with the student and her/his family in order to adjust and improve the teaching experience. More independent students will come up with their own questions and a list of topics from the syllabus that need help with. This is the best way that tutoring works. More challenged students will require a scaffolding and specific lesson structure e.g. full syllabus teaching along with homework, assessments, etc. As seen from my CV, I have completed a Diploma in Education (DipEd, UNSW 2012) and I am a fully Qualified Secondary School Teacher. I have experience in teaching both at one-to-one and at a class setting. The rest of my education involves a Ph.D. in Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics (University of Oxford, 2002), a Bachelors Degree in Physics (University of Ioannina 1998) and a Diploma in Business (Kent Institute of Business and Technology, 2012). I also have extensive experience in research (Theoretical Physics, 2001-2007).

Mark - Lambersart, France$50
Trusted teacher: ***** My availability varies according to the slots reserved by the pupils / students. To gain efficiency, I will send you a link to my "google agenda". You will be able to position our sessions more quickly ***** Hello, I offer you my expertise and experience to (re) upgrade you in English. I can intervene at the following levels: - School: * (primary school: initiation) => Cambridge tests 'Starters - Movers - Flyers' & others. * (college-high school) => remediation / upgrading in grammar + other language activities such as Oral / Writing Comprehension or Continuous Speaking / Interaction) - Superior (CPGE, IEP prep, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate ...) (Preparation for tests such as "Tremplin-Passerelle-Passerelle2- Ecricome" ...) (English for Interns in medicine ...) (Linguistics / phonology / didactics for the English CAPES ... or other competition like the CRPE) - I accompany and have accompanied many adults who needed to be / become truly successful in speaking / writing in English as part of their professional activities (fluency, accent reduction, grammar. ...) or as part of resuming studies. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I am a linguist by training and author of a textbook in this capacity. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995. Teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you the fruit of my expertise and my experience as well as the perspective of an educational professional who knows the system perfectly from the "inside". By the way, did you know that to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the despair of students who are starting higher studies and who learn that they will have to obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) to see their diploma approved. 2 tips for students: "your TOEIC / IELTS score, it is from L1 that you must prepare it" "if you want to be able to write - English read, understood and spoken in your CV - well it is also from L1 that you must train yourself to speak English, to read in English and of course to write. * Daily monitoring possible via the internet: to learn modern foreign languages, it is always more profitable to work a little each day. It is possible to consider placing slots of 15 or 20 minutes of intensive work on one type of activity several times a week. (See the "memorization" video in the 'Surfonsdoc Orléans-Tours' channel on youtube) -> Look for "debbinghaus curve" on google. * Each course is prepared according to your personal needs. Feedback is always given at the end of the session. * One of the fields in which I specialize is "phonology": intonation, word stress, connections ... In short, everything that relates to oral grammar. If you are tired of being immediately spotted as the man in the video "the i rabbit (you will find it in a few clicks on youtube)) See you soon! Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
Angela - Ornex, France$30
Trusted teacher: My native language is Spanish (Native, Alicante), I have a Bac +5 degree in Science (Biology) and a Master's degree in Education that gives me an educational experience in education. I give Spanish lessons for those who see the need to learn the language from scratch, or just for those who want to learn it.

Elise - Écublens, Switzerland$72
Trusted teacher: French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.
