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.

Abdelhamid
Remedial courses in Mathematics and Computer Science (Bac SM, preparatory classes)
I give refresher and remedial courses in mathematics and computer science. For Mathematical Sciences students who did not pass their baccalaureate this year or those who succeeded in the 1st Mathematical Sciences baccalaureate, I offer courses for upgrading and preparation courses for the baccalaureate. For repeating students in preparatory classes, I give refresher courses in mathematics and computer science (algorithms and programming). I apply a differential active pedagogy.

A Maths teacher teaches Maths, Algebra and Geometry
An experienced teacher at your disposal for: - Methodology adapted to all levels. - Upgrading. - Consolidation of achievements. - Preparation for an examination / competition (CEB, CE1D, CESS.etc). - Help with homework and lessons. - Complementary exercises and review as controls and exams approach. - Advice and supervision at the level of working methods. - Recommended teaching methods. Currently, I am doing my maths aggregation. I am already an electromechanical engineer, graduated as a senior technician in electronics and electrical engineering and who passed my bachelor's degree in mathematics with honors. I teach in different technical fields and especially mathematics, algebra and electronics. At the level of my teaching methods, I use those that are advised pedagogically, I always try to explain and detail as much as possible the courses and I do not pass to the following stages until after making sure that the student understood what I explained. As a teacher, I already have a good experience teaching with students for 6 years. What is certain, I make sure to always go as far as possible to explain the exercises.

Get learning Maths, English and Science up to GCSE level
I specialise in tutoring science, maths and English (GCSE and ESL) all subjects are taught up to GCSE level or lower depending on child's age. My goal is to keep students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson and provide periodic progress reports making sure the parents/carers are involved in the learning of the child and to track their progress too.

Oliver
Physics / Science / Mathematics tutor - IGCSE / IB MYP and DP
I am an interactive teacher of 5 years experience in schools. I have been a tutor for 13 years. I have taught physics and astronomy / astrophysics at university and have studied in science, education and science communication. My way of teaching is friendly and open, but clear and direct. I use lots of materials and interactive simulations and conceptual learning where possible. My abilities in education are incredibly strong and online getting better everytime I tutor. Given the previous situation with Covid. Online teaching has become second nature and I am happy to help your learning online. Teaching methodology: In order to teach a student effectively, it cannot simply be a matter of taking notes or going over the same material again and again. Students need time to connect concepts by approaching subjects from many angles. It takes practice and skill to make learning in a classroom interesting. I have been developing those skills over many years and continue to try and do so as I teach and learn myself!

Federico
Physics and Mathematics classes for primary, secondary and university students
Hiring this course you will have access to private classes in mathematics, from initial level to differential calculus and resolution of differential equations, and in physics, from initial level to advanced concepts of electromagnetism. The classes and topics are built together with the student, ensuring that they cover relevant topics, and varying the approach until we find what works. Hiring this course you'll have access to math classes, from elementary level to calculus and differential equations, and physics classes, from beginner concepts to advanced electromagnetism. Classes are constructed side by side with the student, in order to cover relevant topics, trying different strategies and focuses until we find what works for you.

Mounir
Excellence Math, Physics, Chemistry - 19 average - New program 2022
Give your child the future he deserves. Graduated from Arts et Métiers ParisTech / 20/20 in mathematics at the Bac / preparatory class / Private teacher for 10 years Do you want to significantly increase your child's mathematical average? Do you want it to integrate a selective course? Do you want it to become autonomous? For 5 years, I have helped more than 30 French students in difficulty from middle school (sixth, fifth, fourth, third) and high school (second, first, final) to achieve their goals (good average, patent, bac, PREPA) and to regain self-confidence. My method in 3 points: - short term, significantly increase the average by assimilating the course and preparing for the next tests (assimilating the course, writing sheets, training in standard exercises, anticipating the teacher's expectations and test questions, having writing methods) - medium term, integrate reasoning and working methods (learn to work regularly in this order: assimilation, training exercise, test preparation and test analysis passes) - long-term, set a goal, build the steps to achieve this goal, become aware of the SIMPLICITY of math, have confidence in your abilities, unlock your potential) The formula: one or two sessions of 1h30/2h per week for the assimilation of the course and to prepare for the test. - Classes on Google Meet - Virtual whiteboard to assimilate faster - Library of 10 books online - More than 1000 exos online Questions ? Contact me and I will answer you.

EXCELLENT COURSE WITH THE BEST TEACHER (PRIMARY-COLLEGE-LYCEE) 18/19 AVERAGE
Sharing my knowledge has always been a pleasure for me, I want to teach like my favorite and seasoned teachers have done. Sometimes the material may seem complicated to you, but it is only your teacher who does not know how to explain ... With me you will love the material for sure !!!! We will only aim for excellence, and we will achieve it Your child, will overcome all his shortcomings and difficulties that he encountered before, studying for him will become a part of pleasure. In addition to studies, I could help him find his way, know his preferences, instill in him the fruits and benefits that our educational ambition can provide us.

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.
