About Me

As an environmental guide and private teacher, I have noticed that students normally have classes based on reading books, boards classes, written workshops, and depending on the school, they can have laboratory practices or field trips occasionally. This makes biology boring. Also, in many cases in Colombia, the program content is relegated to current biology, which unmotivated the students and in the end, they do not learn too much.

I like to teach biology in a dynamic way, including the student and his/her curiosity, with curious tips or even with small activities that support what I am teaching to the student. I use the degree of the passion of the student as a measure of her/his learning, which has to be high and it is because he/she understands that biology is all that surrounds him/her, even if he/she does not see it so clearly.
I have learned this methodology thanks to the contact with the students and my motivation is based on her/his smile, her/his amazement, her/his desire to continue learning, the passion with which she/he asks the questions and I realize that many times, we underestimate the intelligence of the students, they are the best guides to know what they understand and what they don't.

préparation aux concours de réorientation de médecine ( SVT)
I'd like to start by greeting everyone who is reading this and then briefly discuss the teachings I'm providing. Going to medical school is a major step, and while becoming a doctor may have been a big dream of yours, things unfortunately didn't turn out the way you had hoped. You didn't receive what you eagerly want following your bac. I'm here to tell you that earning your bac is just the first step on a longer journey. You have another opportunity to fulfill your lifelong ambitions. What role do I play in this? as someone who has been in your position and ultimately obtained what I want. We will have a customized plan that fulfills your needs, we will correct any unsuccessful methods and build new ones, and I will lead you through the program at every stage.

Online Geography Tuition - Year 7 through to year 11 (GCSE)
Are you struggling with geography in school? Fear not, as there is a solution - an online geography tutor! My passion for geography and earth science stems from my open university qualifications in earth science and oceanography. These qualifications have allowed me to delve deeper into the world of geography and understand it on a fundamental level. Over the past 27 years, I have been teaching geography to students ranging from year 7 to year 11, allowing me to develop various teaching styles to accommodate every student's needs. The importance of geography cannot be understated, as it teaches us about the world around us, its inhabitants, and the way we interact with it. As our world changes, we must understand how geography influences and impacts us. The skills developed in geography, such as map reading and critical thinking, are transferable across multiple fields, making geography a highly desirable subject for students to learn. By working with an online geography tutor, students can have access to a more personalised learning experience, allowing them to progress at their own pace. As a tutor, I focus on providing my students with an interactive and engaging environment that inspires curiosity and encourages learning. Online tutoring is a convenient and affordable way for students to gain access to expert help in geography. With the help of an experienced online geography tutor, students can become confident in their skills, gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and excel in their studies.

Jano
Teacher of Primary and Infant Education. Sports and English Specialties
As a Teacher with a degree in Early Childhood Education, I have the basic knowledge to be able to teach classes from 3 years to 12 years, that is, both in the second cycle of kindergarten and in all primary education. My specialties are mathematics and English, since this last year I have been living and working in Ireland as a teacher. I am fascinated by teaching and my main methodology is based on repetition. I consider it essential to speak and listen to a foreign language in order to master it. When older, I practice the grammatical part a lot. On the other hand, mathematics has always fascinated me and I am passionate about it. I believe that the best way to teach it is always showing the different ways of obtaining a result and not just sticking to a single resolution process. Finally, say that my work methods are very focused on the motivation of my students. It seems to me a fundamental point so that both boys and girls and adults want to learn something new.

Johanny Chacin
Comprehensive teacher of primary education (management of different learning areas)
I am an integral primary education teacher (since 2014) which allows me to cover different learning areas from 1st to 6th grade (in some cases managing content and topics from 1st and 2nd year of secondary education). Depending on the learning need, you will be able to have different didactic material and pedagogical guidance in the area of reading, writing, mathematics, natural sciences, health, English (basic), artistic, among others. Each lesson is accompanied by reinforcement activities which are followed up in each class to consolidate learning.
