    Private lessons in Maths, Physics and English, as well as tutoring in techniques for taking test or exams

    I specialise in tutoring Mathematics, the Sciences and English for all pre-university levels (including anything for the International Baccalaureate to the Federal and Cantonal 'Maturité' Systems).
    In the case of Mathematics and the Sciences, the aim of the lessons will be to move beyond the simple application of memorised formulas to an actual in-depth understanding of the reasoning involved. I also offer many techniques which make mathematical and scientific reasoning easier, but also more enjoyable and interesting. If you often feel like you 'just can't do' or are 'just bad at' maths and sciences, then this is definitely the course for you!
    In the case of English, as a Bilingual french and English speaker, I can offer in depth training towards proper pronunciation, grammar, spelling or any other area in which you may need assistance.

    Extra information

    In the case of Mathematics and the Sciences and in order to guarantee that lessons are as fruitful as possible, I will ask that you send me scanned copies of the theories and/or exercises which will covered about 2 days before each lesson.

    About Me

    Hello! My name is Ben (no need to try pronouncing my family name right!). I have been a tutor for over 10 years now and hope to become a teacher. I'm very friendly and patient: everyone needs to learn in their own way and at their own pace.
    An unfortunate, but unavoidable, problem with the general education system is that it is impossible to tailor one teaching method to a classroom of twenty different students. This means that, particularly in mathematical fields, some students will be left feeling as if they cannot understand a given subject and will often become disinterested. In fact, that subject has simply not yet been presented to them in a way they can fully understand or find interesting.
    My aim is to help compensate for this problem through one-on-one lessons. During each lesson, I will focus on finding the best way for you to learn. My speciality is teaching those students who are currently failing a given subject and helping them reach a level of understanding where they are comfortable taking tests or exams.

    Education

    I have a Master's and a Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy and Cognitive Science. One of my main interests during my studies was numerical cognition (broadly, how human beings think about and learn mathematics).

    Experience / Qualifications

    I have been a tutor for over 10 years. In this time, those students who were failing when lessons began were able to reach, at the very least, a passing average by the end of our time together.

    English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
    English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students

    Physics support for high school students after classes or weekends
    I am a science student with the desire to specialize in physics. The physics courses that I offer are aimed at middle and high school students. This subject may seem a little complex at first, but I personally pledge that following the help that I will provide you, you find it exciting! The goal is that together we fill your gaps in this area while seeing a playful side! Once we have attacked the chapters under the right angle the resolution of the exercises will seem obvious! We will begin with a small reminder of the course to ensure that the basics are solid to then proceed to the resolution of the exercises with an ascending level! The student can contact me between classes to ask me additional questions!

    Parler bien le russe dans 1 an et 2 mois est possible:)
    Intéressé par le russe? Vous avez déjà un peu de patience? beaucoup de passion? de curiosité et d'amour pour l'apprentissage? la seule nécessité dont vous avez besoin c'est de trouver un bon enseignant? Vous êtes au bon endroit :) PS je trouve que c'est remarquable, que mon premier elève débutant 14 mois après notre premier rdv sait tenir une bonne conversation en russe bien difficile et n'a pas du tout besoin de passer en français pour me faire comprendre son idée:) C'est un miracle? Ou juste le resultat de notre travail mutuel?!:) Depuis lors ma méthodologie d'enseignement est améliorée par la chance de rencontrer des elèves venant de différents coins du monde (du Japon au Pérou) littéralement de tous les horizons professionnels, ayant des intérêts, des rêves, des loisirs, des besoins différents. Alors, on bâts des nouveaux records ensemble?:) Salut Ma Chère et Mon Cher, Future et Futur Elève je m'appelle Halyna et ma langue maternelle est le russe. Et en ce moment, je cherche des personnes qui peuvent partager avec moi leur passion brûlante pour les langues :) Je ne vais pas vous apprendre ces phrases de "robot", ma véritable intention n'est que de vous faire aimer la langue, notre culture, nos traditions, de vous faire comprendre notre logique, façon de vivre, de voir les choses:) Et pour atteindre cela, je prépare soigneusement mes cours en m'inspirant de différentes sources comme des manuels de russe comme la langue étrangère (tous les niveaux de A1 jusqu'à C2) des livres de grammaire, des vidéos, des chansons, des articles de presse, des modèles d'examens, je fais moi-même des petites cartes "surprise" ou j'imagine des petits jeux pour faire mes elèves réviser et renforcer des connaisances reçues et bien sûr, pourquoi pas un peu de littérature russe. Apprenons quelques citations merveilleuses du poème de la grande poète Marina Тsvetaeva "ou pourquoi ne pas partager quelques lignes magnifiques de la création de Gogol " Les âmes mortes " et bien sûr, si vous n'avez peur, perdons-nous quelque part sur les étangs du patriarche de Boulgakov dans "Le Maître et Marguerite":) Je voudrais beaucoup que mes élèves considèrent mes cours comme un plaisir où ils peuvent recevoir des connaisances solides en s'amusant:) Je serais reconnaissante et heureuse si vous pouviez partager avec moi votre temps, vos intérêts et votre manière d'apprendre d'autres langues et peut-être nous pourrions découvrir ensemble de nouvelles méthodes d'apprentissage qui seront efficaces:) N'attendez pas et écrivez-moi, ouvrons ensemble cette porte mystérieuse de la langue russe!:) PS PS Je parle le français et l'anglais donc je peux vous fournir des explications nécessaires en ces deux langues, cela ne me pose aucun problème:) Mes Chers Etudiants, J'espère que j'ai mentionné tout ce que j'estimais important de savoir sur mes cours et sur moi. Mais bien sûr, si vous avez des questions ou si vous souhaitez savoir plus écrivez-moi immediatement :) Il me fera plaisir de répondre à toutes vos questions :) Et pour finir, permettez-moi de conclure avec cette grande citation: "La force d'une personne réside dans son intelligence et sa langue". Bonne chance avec vos projets, quel que soit votre objectif :)poka poka, see you very soon;)
