Learn Physics, Chemistry and Maths from an Astrophysicist

I am resident of Founex and I work as a PhD researcher in Astrophysics at the Geneva Observatory in Versoix. I have 2 years of teaching experience in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Leeds, UK along with 1 year of private tutoring in Chemistry.

To get a firm grasp on a difficult topic, I believe it is essential to start with the basics and then to work towards the core of the problem. A curriculum focused on independent thinking and steady practise will be taught to the student. Whether the goal is to prepare for an exam or homework; lessons will be altered to match the individual's needs. Mock Test/Exams will be conducted at regular intervals.

I hope to share my excitement and passion for natural sciences and mathematics with the students in an open and 'there is no such thing as a difficult problem' way!

I am available to teach students at my home in Founex or travel to location a few kilometers around Founex or Coppet. I am also available to teach via zoom or skype.

Benoit
Private math lessons - Limoges or online - Qualified and experienced math teacher
I am a qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career by teaching remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual academic support by following educational training at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private mathematics lessons daily for over ten years. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I provide my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (online via the internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This board is specially designed to promote student/teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to take advantage of it.

Math and Physics tutoring for children and teenagers: IB MYP, IGCSE, and GCSE.
I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!

Tutoring in maths, biology and chemistry - Middle school/ High school
Currently in my second year of a Bachelor in Bioengineering at EPFL, I offer tutoring from middle school to highschool level in maths, biology and chemistry. I also offer help to prepare for tests and exams. I practice these classes daily and I always had excellent grades in them. I am also used to helping struggling students. I mainly work with problem solving to understand where the difficulties come from and work on them with the student. It allows the student to develop an excellent understanding of the theory, as well as a nice inventory of classic problems, often asked during tests.

Boost not only your confidence in Maths but also your GSSE grades :)
I specialise in offering Maths tuition to students from ages 11 to 16. My aim is make sure that students achieve their full potential by giving them extra hand and reinforcing the mathematical concepts covered in schools. I am quite passionate about teaching Maths and have been teaching in secondary schools for more than 10 years. Preparing students for the GCSE exams and celebrating their success gives me a lot of satisfaction. I achieve this by actively working through exam-style questions where students are given an opportunity to apply their knowledge and if needed we revisit the basics during our sessions.

Raúl Martín
Reinforcement of Physics and Chemistry for ESO. Support in photography and computing.
Both physics and chemistry are present in our daily lives. It is important that you learn to know its uses. Likewise, computing is essential for development, since even the device in front of you needs it. You must learn its management.

Alex
Higher + GCSE Mathematics (Current undergraduate student of physics and Mathematics)
INTRODUCTION: This class is remotely taught. I will follow a structured lesson timetable and provide 1 hour sessions over the camera. Each session will cover different topics to ensure that the student covers all their syllabus being taught at School. I will also have provide weekly feedback on the progress of each student via email and am available via email weekdays + weekends 9AM-6PM and will respond within 24hours. STUCTURE: As previously mentioned, each session will be a new topic varying from statistics topics such as histograms to more pure Mathematics such as algebra and graphs. I will always give a brief 10 min introduction to the topic planned to teach and some background knowledge and sources only if requested. However, my timetable is flexible, so if the student would like to cover something that they are struggling with, I will be happy to cover that topic instead and ask questions to ensure a good comprehension level.

Noah
Maths and arithmetic help for 13 and under. Any topics
This is primarily going to be a maths lesson where I help with specific things you are struggling with and teach you new things as well When we start I will issue a small test to decide what particular areas need work. Once we have rooted out the problem we can get cracking on a solution. I know maths can be a bit of a headache sometimes but with the right tools it can be a lot easier

Salah Eddine
Math tutoring for high school students
As a teaching professional, I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge. My goal is to provide quality education. I am aware that some topics may seem complex, but often this is simply the result of an inadequate explanation by the teacher. With me, you will discover a real interest in the material! We strive together to achieve academic excellence, overcoming the shortcomings and difficulties encountered by your child. Studies will become a pleasant experience for him. In addition to the courses, I can also help with school orientation, identifying their preferences and highlighting the advantages and benefits of a fulfilling educational ambition. The sessions generally take place according to the following stages: 1️⃣ The first sessions are devoted to the assessment of the student's level in order to detect existing gaps. 2️⃣ Next, we create a personalized plan to address these gaps, including the number of hours of work needed, specific areas to focus on, and appropriate training and development exercises. 3️⃣ We stay in constant contact with the student's class teacher, to keep up to date with the latest requirements and ensure a consistent approach. 4️⃣ Subsequently, I provide exams similar to those that are likely to be asked in class, to prepare the student effectively. 5️⃣ Upon request, I write a regular report, usually monthly, to keep parents informed of their child's progress throughout their course. I adapt my methodology according to the specific needs of each student, thus offering them a personalized and adapted work approach. In addition, I offer crash courses for students preparing for the start of the school year, allowing them to start the year well prepared, with a solid lead on the school curriculum. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help you.
