Expert tutoring from Columbia University instructor

I have 21 years of in-person tutoring and 13 years of online tutoring experience in the world's most competitive markets: New York, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Istanbul and more. I’ve recently moved to Paris and want to do the same here.

I am an expert in the following areas: all Math subjects up to Multi-variable Calculus, Physics, essay writing and literary composition, all areas of the SAT and ACT, the math sections/exams of the IB, AP, GMAT, GRE, GCSE and A-Levels tests/programs, film & video studies and production.

I have prepared many students for Ivy League and Oxbridge admission, helped some achieve perfect SAT scores, created and taught a course at Columbia University, and tutored students at Eton and Harrow in the UK (where the Royal Family sends its children) and Brearley, Packer Collegiate, Saint Ann’s and other top schools in New York.

Recently I was the main SAT course provider for the International School of Prague - the largest and most reputable international school in the Czech Republic - over a period of three years. I am also an industry expert in online tutoring: for the last 13 years I have taught well over a hundred students in five continents - completely online - for advanced subjects such as AP Calculus, A-Level Physics and IB Essay composition.

I am a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and a native English speaker, born and raised in the US before moving to Europe more than 15 years ago. When I’m not tutoring or consulting education companies on their technological needs, I’m usually working on screenplays or films. Or traveling… at least I was before the pandemic :)

We can work in-person in Paris or online. Even if you prefer to work in-person, I am happy to offer a 20-minute session online to answer your questions and provide a tutoring sample. Be sure to ask for this if interested.

Speak to you soon.

About Me

Born in the US and living in Europe for nearly two decades, I have worked with students at some of the best schools in New York, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Istanbul.

I am an industry-expert in online tutoring and have tutored students for advanced math, physics, exams and special programs (i.e. Calculus, SAT, IB, AP, GCSE, A-Level, etc) with live, online sessions since 2008, long before online tutoring companies had emerged. I have also consulted companies on their online tutoring setup and am designing an online education platform that has led to relationships with universities and companies in the US and Europe.

I have prepared hundreds of students for competitive universities including Ivy League and Oxbridge schools, created a course at Columbia University in New York, tutored students attending Eton and Harrow in the UK and Brearley, Packer Collegiate, and Saint Ann's in New York, and have been the exclusive provider of SAT courses to the International School of Prague, the largest international school in the Czech Republic.

Outside of education, I am a film director and screenwriter and have written two feature-length screenplays, set in Rome and Istanbul. I love to philosophize about art, history, politics, science and good food.

Brigitte
Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

🚀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! 😊

MATT MATHS !! Prof + Coach: Refresher, motivation, methodology, stress management ... Experienced teacher graduate Master II
If your child does not like mathematics or is in difficulty, it is because the learning method used in class is not adapted to his psycho-cognitive profile. I offer you a simple and tailor-made pedagogy which will allow him to easily understand and illuminate the still dark and locked areas of his natural faculties of analysis. After fifteen years of teaching experience and solid knowledge in basic psychology and pedagogy, I can now quickly detect the factors limiting the aptitudes of the students and introduce the tools and the speech that will restore confidence and desire in the most difficult cases. desperate. I thus specialized in primary and middle school students. In addition to my school coaching, I practice and teach the violin, the piano and music theory. The requirements and skills of analysis and personal work required by musical practice are the same as those necessary to succeed in Science and Mathematics in particular. Albert Einstein himself was a violinist of a very appreciable level. Holder of a license and a diploma at Master II level, I also hold two baccalaureates: A technical baccalaureate in music and a Scientific baccalaureate. (Mention B and TB). During the spe-math test of the first, I obtained the score of 21/20. Why did the corrector decide to give me a score higher than 20/20? Because he judged that the qualities of editorial clarity, presentation and rigor of demonstration were of a university level, which can be explained by the fact that I had already studied the program of preparatory classes for the grandes écoles . My work therefore deserved in his eyes more than the few other copies noted 20/20 in which there were no errors. Give your child the opportunity to highlight the qualities he already possesses in order to restore the good appreciations of his teachers, to fully realize his potentials and to open himself the doors to a future he deserves. See you soon for a first lesson! Charles

Tunisian Arabic, culture and civilization for everyone
This class is about learning Tunisian Arabic to easily interact with Tunisians. Tunisian Arabic is not the first dialect you hear about when you start to learn Arabic, but it is indeed one of the most fascinating and useful, especially if you are working in Tunisia, your partner is Tunisian or you are into North African social studies. It occurred to you to be told that Tunisian Arabic has no grammatical or syntactic rules because it's not real Arabic? Well, that's not true! I can reveal you some tips to speak and sound Tunisian even if you don't know anything about Arabic. We will talk, play, watch videos from Tunisian tv programs and learn about language and culture. I also do transcriptions and translations of documents and videos into French and Italian for academic researchers, journalists, and entrepreneurs.

Help with primary level homework - middle school - high school student in difficulty (experienced teacher)
Since my return to an elite Parisian high school at the age of 15, I have given courses in French for advanced homework and methodology and courses for beginners in ancient Greek to a student from the Collège Henri IV. Subsequently, while studying in Spain, I loved giving French lessons to Spanish children from French schools, again at college level. Last year I gave lessons via the Etude Alpha application in a number of private establishments in the Paris region.

Maths and Physics lessons to excel! [College - High school - CPGE]
A teacher at heart, I try at all costs to understand the way my student works. Depending on his profile, I then apply simple exercises to boost his work efficiency. I am deeply convinced that all students are capable of success, it suffices to identify the method that will work! The secret to success? Exercises ! There is only a limited number of exercises per lesson, so you just need to have them all done at least once to master the lesson as much as the teacher! My mission is therefore to make my student understand this and to motivate him so that he wants to do it. I was able to assist many students, and I was able to help students in difficulty to fill all their gap (Average going from 3/20 to 12/20 after a few weeks of lessons) as well as to help average students. to excel! (From 13/20 to 18/20).

Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry - College - how to go about it.
I teach mathematics, physics and chemistry from elementary to high school: I put much more emphasis on methodology and confidence building. This makes it easier for students to approach the material. I support students throughout the year with personalized follow-up for each student: methodology, exam preparation, optimization and time management. Homework help, revisions, preparation of revision sheets, exam corrections, personalized advice. Depending on the level, the difficulties and the needs of my students, I set up a program to assess their progress. Some need more lessons to consolidate the basics while others master the course and they need more practice exercises. Once the students have mastered the course and the application exercises, we work through specific tests, self-confidence and time management, making it easier to tackle exams in class. I have students who were below average and who became good at it; others who were good but lacked confidence and subsequently became excellent. I am available immediately for regular or punctual courses.
