Maths Tutor Science Tutor Physics Tutor. All ages, All abilities

I am a private tutor able to teach Maths and Science to all ages.
I have been a school teacher for the last three years and I have university degrees in Mathematics, Physics and Secondary School teaching.

I am able to help all ages learn my subjects for various levels. e.g. Junior and Secondary school exams, MYP, IGCSE, A levles, IB, University Level.

***NOTE: If you require tutoring at a higher level (Higher education, College, University), please book via my 'Advanced Maths and Physics class. ****

I tailor my tuition to suit the student as much as possible. The pupil may indicate specific topics/questions/exam papers that they would like help with and I can provide support by assisting them through tough questions/assignments, explaining important concepts they don't yet fully understand and I can create some challenging questions to help my pupils secure their knowledge.

I can provide extra homework as monitor progress in order to help my pupils even better.

As a tutor I'm friendly, supporting and encouraging. I believe anyone is able to learn anything they want to with enough patience, determination and guidance - and I have an endless supply of these!

Extra information

My tuition works best if the pupil provides material in advance that they would like help with. e.g. Homework questions, topics, exam papers, etc.

Excellent teacher. Tom knew exactly what my son needed to close the gap between IGCSE and MYP and got into it right away. He has the ability to make concepts clear and enable the learner to gain knowledge. I highly recommend Tom.
Great impression after the first class. Clear explanation of learning material.
Great teacher, jumped right in. Prepared and on time, easy to learn from!
Tom was a great choice to teach my 8year old daughter.
Hi Tom, Thank you for today. Melis liked it. We would like to continiu. Neslihan

Strengthen your knowledge of networks and telecommunications in the form of practical work, via LABS.
NB: I ALSO DELIVER LESSONS IN THE FORM OF TP, VIA LABS. To allow the student to have a better practical understanding. My teaching is aimed particularly at university students who would like to strengthen their knowledge of networks and telecommunications, but also to professionals who need to strengthen their knowledge. The courses will be carried out remotely (skype) or by other videoconferencing tools. I have several methods of dispensing lessons, depending on the profile of the student. If the student has a particular topic, we can take more time on it, for example spanning tree, EIGRP, resilience, default route ... But I prefer to give lessons with my personal guides that I could share with the student.

Chemistry for High School and University exams (English)
This class will help my students (from high school to university level) to understand and face one of the most studied discipline in science: chemistry. I have been worked with tens of students, in Italian and in English, helping them for university exams and for high school tests. The class is structured depending on the students needs, with both theoretical and practical (exercises) study. Typical topics in general chemistry are: pH, titrations, redox, stochiometry, electrochemistry. But there is much more. Together we can have fun with chemistry!

IB program, A levels, GCSE, all subjects: math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, SAT / ACT and more.
IB PROGRAM EXPERT. A levels, GCSE all subjects: math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, SAT / ACT and more. Full time professional tutor. I have been teaching all IB subjects since 2011. I am a native English speaker and I have an engineering degree. I have been tutoring students from ASB, BFIS and BSB since 2011. I am experienced and certified in continuing education. I provide personal and individual guidance for a wide range of subject areas. I contact the teachers for each subject the student has, to ensure that the material that is being covered in the tutoring session is the exact same as that of the class. My students immediately see a noticeable improvement in their grades as the I help them to focus on time management skills as well. I focus on enhancing study skills and encourage the students to become autonomous learners that strive for academic excellence.

SPANISH LESSONS FOR KIDS. PLAY & LEARN. Spanish for children.
I work with various materials created to meet the needs of each child; videos, music, games and stories. I do not use textbooks or exercises in which students have to mechanically repeat a certain model. The materials that I use in the classes are colorful, cared for and promote the autonomous learning that they will need in their future use outside the classroom. I believe that each student has his own learning rhythm and must be respected. With a good teacher everyone can reach their goal.

Conversational online Russian lessons! Speak Russian like a native with me.
Hi, I'm Anna. I'm a Russian native speaker and I'll help you improve your spoken Russian, grammar and pronunciation. I have 2 years of experience as an English teacher in China and 1 year of experience as a Russian teacher. The general format of lesson implies the talks about anything. During the lessons we will learn new words, phrases, read books and articles. Teaching spoken Russian and pronunciation correction are the main components of my lessons. We will focus on making you speak even with limited vocabulary. I can find an approach to each student, find your weakness and make you a better Russian speaker. No matter what your goal is, it will be a pleasure for me to be your guide to the Russian speaking world. I look forward to talking to you!

Private lessons in math - physics - engineering
I am an aeronautical engineer and I am well aware of the frustration of not achieving the desired academic results. I was here. A lot of times. I find it very satisfying to teach and to see how my students achieve their goals. I sincerely believe that learning is a privilege and a pleasure. It is my top priority that my students feel this. My level of mathematics, physics and engineering is very competent. Although of course, for very specific topics or doubts, I will have to analyze whether I am able to teach lessons with ease or not. Do not hesitate to write to me. I am used to working with people of different ages. I believe in segmentation, visualization of progress, objective results and practice. For students who have difficulty I analyze the root of learning problems. And, above all, I try to motivate them. An ideal lesson time would be distributed as follows: 20 minutes question and answer and start from these gaps, 30 minutes to advance, 10 minutes lateral thinking. Beyond these general lines, there is no rule or magic method. Some things work with some students and not with others. Adapting to needs is really the goal of private lessons. So I will do my best to find what motivates and helps my student.

SPANISH APPENDICES FOR BEGINNERS AND / OR ADVANCED PERSONS
In my lessons I will teach you Spanish. We adjust the lessons depending on your goal, level and pace. I teach in English, but my mother tongue is Spanish. In the lessons we deal with grammar and vocabulary. And several practical exercises. Students who need tutoring, just like adults who want to learn fluent Spanish, can come to me. During the coronavirus situation, lessons will be given via skype. For more information, send me a message :)

🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
.. [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! 😊

Mathematics class for beginners (elementary school), high school students and GRE test mathematics
I can teach you mathematics - basics or advanced. I also can prepare you for GRE test. Math is all about practise and good teachers, so if you have both that should not be a problem for you. I have always been excellent in math and I really like it and I would like to help people. I can solve different type of problems and help you to understand it better. Math is mostly just practicing, but if you have a good teachers, as I had, then you can save a lot of time in that way.

Introduction to Japanese: The Kana booster (hiragana & katakana)
こ ん に ち は (Hello) That's it you decided to seriously learn Japanese to get closer to your goal? How to learn a new language when you have passed the stage of childhood? Do you fear oblivion or retrogression? When you learn the Japanese alphabet in high school or university, it takes between 3 to 6 months to anchor the learning of hiragana and katakana. I know this frustration of not going fast enough to then be able to read it, write it, understand it and speak it! Forget the romaji which are a real obstacle to learning Japanese even if I understand that it is a comfortable benchmark for learners. I created "the Kana booster" to support you in your first steps towards the Japanese language: - Discovery of Japanese characters - Pronunciation of the alphabet - Introduction to the writing system - Maintenance of the syllabary thanks to memorization - Kana challenge I had to learn hiragana like you in several months. On the other hand for the katakana, I only had 15 days to memorize them before my Japanese school year! This is why I have compiled my knowledge and know-how for you! I have my little tips and my personal methods so that you can acquire the basics to pursue your passion! *Who should attend ?* Pure beginners or those who need to refresh their memories or people who have lost their motivation as well as those who want to start / start again on good foundations! * How does the course actually work? * In 30 minutes we dynamically do the alphabet line by line. A real exchange between the learner and me. I reveal the errors and correct them. I give keys on the traps to avoid. We see the alphabet in all its forms in different approaches. Finally we take stock at the end of the lesson. * And what about my methodology? * With 6 years of language teaching with a different learner profile and around the world, then after working in South Korea and Japan with companies that prioritize education, I developed my vision and the tools necessary for the proper development of the learning of a foreign language for non-Aboriginal people. Being a teacher / student, I test myself what I offer. it allows me to identify the strengths and weaknesses of my media in order to improve the content and aim for excellence. For learning this course is suitable for young and old, I speak French, English and Japanese fluently so I can teach the course in these languages. * What does my rate include? * "Kana's booster" is at its launch price. This is a "boost" course to help you learn faster and save you time! Once mastered, you can easily assimilate other notions of the Japanese language and be one step ahead of others. By choosing me, you can always be in contact with me and ask me questions about your problems (even outside the course) Send a course request and let's practice together! Amandine 愛 満 多 よ り

Math, statistics, physics, chemistry lessons, by videoconference - secondary level
With me, you will love math. Boss math, I had 100% in math during my primary and secondary. Selected every year for the Belgian Mathematical Olympiad, I also participated in other competitions where I was very well ranked at the national level. For me, there is no secret: practice, practice, practice ... The more you practice, the better you understand, the results will improve and you will love this material that is not so witch My pedagogy is flexible, I adapt to the student. Beyond repeating the classical theory, I explain things differently so that the student can understand better. I also like to accompany the student to do math exercises, so that the student can continue alone after my departure. I am also reachable outside class hours if you have a question. Class in groups of min 3 students, each student must book. https://www.apprentus.be/cours-particuliers/bruxelles/soutien-scolaire/maths/ingenieur-dquête-math-2-eleves

Private maths, physics and French lessons and homework help, Tutors 5 years of experience
We are two math and physics tutors and help with homework for all levels up to university. We give our private lessons online via zoom. We have decided to create a common profile in order to best meet the demands of our students and thus ensure the most adequate support according to their profile and expectations. Alejandro: I am a master's student in sustainable development. Before that I obtained my Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering at EPFL. I offer math / physics courses for students who need help to follow their courses as well as those in search of improvement. Elea: I graduated from the school of speech therapy (speech therapy) at La Sorbonne University in Paris in July. Before my training, I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors, and completed a year of preparation for speech therapy competitions. I thus have a scientific and literary background allowing me to support your child in all the subjects of his school curriculum. I would like to point out that I am offering private lessons here in a school setting and not speech therapy sessions which are part of the care. Nevertheless, my training allows me to demonstrate a pedagogy taking into account the profile of your child. Comprehensive and methodical, we personalize our lessons to be able to provide solid support to our students. Our courses allow you to acquire methods of reflection and resolution of exercises to better tackle these subjects. Our goal is to help our students gain confidence and skills in the targeted subjects, so they can face the exams with confidence. Are you not convinced of the effectiveness of online courses? We invite you to ask us for more information on the course of the distance learning courses, guaranteeing you a safe learning.
