    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

    Learn Spanish, English, Dutch? / Spaans, Engels, Nederlands leren?
    So you want to learn Dutch, English or Spanish? Then you're at the right place! My approach is to adapt to the students' needs. Of course, conversational exercises are included in the aforementioned languages. I also believe understanding grammar is important and you can decide how much time you want to spend on this, I love understanding a theory thoroughly and explain it in the simplest way I can for all to comprehend. I have a over 7 years experience giving classes on various topics (music, anthropology, languages). I love teaching to kids of any age and have a successful method for doing so! Dutch: because I'm a native Spanish: because I speak it daily for over 8 years English: because I speak it good enough to teach it... I've been a teacher for over 10 years but really, learning a language mainly depends on your own efforts!

    English Like a Native, English for Test Preparation, IELTS and TOEFL
    Get in touch ONLY if you are a serious student and have a great desire to learn. I have a clear expectation and expect you to practise at least one hour a day at home before attending my lesson. I know it sounds a bit harsh, but you know where I am coming from :) I am a native English speaker from London. I graduated from Durham University in June 2017 where I studied Mathematics and Economics. After my graduation, I taught Maths at a grammar school for 6 months. In the meantime, I taught English for those whom English is not their first language, this was conducted mostly in a one-to-one format. I am a well-organised person and have different methods and resources to target your needs. I also speak a little Turkish and will try to explain the lesson in Turkish if it gets too difficult.

    Les cours sont adaptés à chaque élève, à ses acquis, à ses difficultés et à ses objectifs. Ils sont basés essentiellement sur la pratique d'exercices et de sujets d'examen, complétés par l'éclaircissement des notions théoriques qui n'auraient pas été comprises. Des explications claires et des conseils efficaces permettent d'acquérir aisance et sérénité pour combler les lacunes, mieux s'organiser dans son travail, reprendre confiance en soi.

    Etudiant en MPSI donne cours de maths et physique du collège au lycée sur Tours
    Je suis quelqu'un de cool qui n'aime pas se prendre la tête, avec moi les cours sont ludiques et concrets et je sais transmettre mon enthousiasme pour les matières scientifiques. Je suis de très prêt les actualités scientifiques et je connais de nombreuses sources sur internet qui pourraient prendre le relais de mes cours si vous voulez approfondir un sujet. Mes cours sont essentiellement dirigés du concret vers l'abstrait. Je suis étudiant en Maths sup/ Maths spé au lycée Descartes de Tours. J'ai obtenu le BAC S avec mention Très Bien en 2017. Je n'ai jamais enseigné à d'autres personnes qu'à mes petites soeurs, mais j'aide souvent mes camarades en prépa, ils savent que j'arrive à conceptualiser les cours et que je peux donner un point de vue différent de celui du professeur (qui est très scolaire) , ce qui les aide à cerner le sujet. - j'ai sauté la classe de CE2 (à Belhomert) - j'ai obtenu mon Brevet des collèges mention Très Bien : 16,2 / 20 (à La Loupe) - j'ai obtenu le BAC S mention Très Bien : 17,4 / 20 (Lycée Rémi Belleau) J'ai également remporté un concours de création de site web au sein du Lycée Rémi Belleau.

    Cours de mathématiques niveau universitaire, gymnasial et secondaire
    J'ai enseigné plusieurs années la physique et les mathématiques au niveau gymnasial et secondaire. Je suis à présent à mon compte avec l'idée d'offrir aux enfants un apprentissage plus participatif des sciences. J'utilise aussi mes connaissances du cursus scolaire suisse pour accompagner les étudiants et les mettre à niveau dans leur programme, en décomposant le comment comprendre les questions, comment automatiser les applications et surtout, en visualisant la théorie. En mathématiques comme en physique, ce qui débloque une situation de flou ou de difficulté est de comprendre ce qui n'est pas compris (si si!), puis d'automatiser certains concepts clés. N'hésitez pas à me poser des questions, j'adore parler!
