    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

    English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students)
    I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

    Rebecca
    English Language- exam preparation, conversation, business.
    My name is Rebecca, and I am a CELTA-certified, native English speaker. Whether you are a complete beginner, studying for exams like IELTS, or just brushing up on general or conversational English, I am here to help! I have over 3.5 years experience teaching English to all levels, all age groups, and for all reasons. I believe in working with the student to find the right approach for each individual. This can vary from formal exam practice or learning through interactive elements such as film and song or project based work, to more traditional-style lessons and homework. My priority is to use language that you can use in your everyday life, and to ensure you feel at ease while you learn. I love teaching, and pride myself on my rapport with all students. In each lesson, we will cover grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation through all of the skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening). I can provide homework, practice exams, and monthly progress reports and feedback. I look forward to working with you!

    Speak English, French, Spanish and/or Mandarin in no time!
    Hi! I just moved to Aix and would love to help anyone who would like to work on improving their language skills or even just start to learn a new foreign language. We can just practice speaking the language or work on the grammar. I know how daunting it is to speak another language other than your mother tongue but I want to show you that it is actually fun and can be very helpful for when you go traveling or at your workplace. I have travelled around the world since a very young age and would love to share my passion for languages with you. I was born in Paris but I grew up in Asia (Taiwan, India, and Malaysia). I have a Bachelor degree with honors in French and Spanish.

    Cours particuliers en Math et Physique tous niveaux
    Je suis Ingénieur Physicien avec un doctorat. Je donne cours de math et physique. J'ai donné des cours de math/physique dans une école privée préparant au Jury Central pendant près de 3 ans, et j'ai donné des cours privés à environ 200 étudiants du secondaire et de l'Université (Solvay, médecine, architecture, sciences économiques, kinésithérapie, ...) pendant près de 12 ans, en français à Bruxelles principalement et en anglais à Londres. À l'exception de 2-3 cas isolés, l'ensemble de mes étudiants ont réussi. J'analyse la façon dont l'étudiant pense, en le voyant à l'oeuvre face à un exercice. Ensuite, je lui réexplique la matière selon son mode de pensée.

    Math (easy and hard) and languages (French and German)
    I have experience in teaching mathematics of level ranging from middle school to bachelor. I aspire in giving students an intuitive understanding of the matter, rather than making them apply formulas or learn things by heart. I also master fluency in both french and german, and it would not be the first time for me to teach them
