    About Me

    As an environmental guide and private teacher, I have noticed that students normally have classes based on reading books, boards classes, written workshops, and depending on the school, they can have laboratory practices or field trips occasionally. This makes biology boring. Also, in many cases in Colombia, the program content is relegated to current biology, which unmotivated the students and in the end, they do not learn too much.

    I like to teach biology in a dynamic way, including the student and his/her curiosity, with curious tips or even with small activities that support what I am teaching to the student. I use the degree of the passion of the student as a measure of her/his learning, which has to be high and it is because he/she understands that biology is all that surrounds him/her, even if he/she does not see it so clearly.
    I have learned this methodology thanks to the contact with the students and my motivation is based on her/his smile, her/his amazement, her/his desire to continue learning, the passion with which she/he asks the questions and I realize that many times, we underestimate the intelligence of the students, they are the best guides to know what they understand and what they don't.

    Biology teacher from primary level to understate level
    Hello, I am an enthusiastic and driven tutor who specialises in biology and genetics from secondary education all the way to undergraduate level. I graduated last year with a first-class Biology degree from one of the UK's top universities. I also received full marks in my Biology A-Level. My teaching style is direct, detail-orientated and tailored to your specific requirements. I have a wealth of previous tutoring experience. I have studied learning and development in detail, which puts me in an excellent position to give learning strategies, exam preparation and motivation advice. During my own time at university, I have learned that knowledge is no use without correct application. As such, I encourage all my students to bring out their full potential through their exam technique and planning skills.

    SVT courses for high school students, students (CPGE, Faculty of Geosciences, CAPES prep, Agreg, CRPE), adults, retirees.
    Associate teacher of SVT currently available from the National Education for family reasons (I am therefore no longer in a post in an establishment since 01/09/2021 and am no longer an employee of the EN), I give private lessons of SVT in Visio under autoentrepreneur status. With 10 years of teaching experience in secondary education, with several bac juries to my credit, vacations in CPGE and in prepa agreg at UCB-Lyon 1, and many years of experience of private lessons (including 3 years in main activity during a previous availability), I offer my help in Life and Earth Sciences, from high school level to post-baccalaureate level: CPGE BCPST, prepa CAPES, prepa Agreg, License or Master of Geosciences, preparation for CRPE. I can also provide thematic lessons or workshops for adults (individually or in small groups) who wish to continue learning at any age. My classes combine rigor and benevolence, professionalism, dynamism and humor, according to my former students, when they mention the help that I was able to provide them. I am used to working with multi-dys, AD / HD, high potential and Asperger's students as well. I insist a lot on scientific methodology. I can help you optimize your learning and memorization techniques, help you get to the point, make mental maps. We will also work on the general organization of your work if necessary. I also and above all want to pass on to you my pleasure of learning and the passion of SVTs, which continue to inspire me even today. Having given private lessons for a long time in person at home, I now want to focus on Visio lessons on Zoom, Skype, or any other videoconferencing software. I have been practicing courses in Visio format since March 2020 and have since been more equipped to ensure greater comfort for my students: headphones with microphone (quality sound), graphics tablet connected to an interactive whiteboard, camera-viewer of documents, front lighting reducing unpleasant shadows, Véléda paintings behind me. Having also a first literary course (LEA English-German Masters), I was able to pass within the framework of National Education a complementary double certification allowing me to teach SVT in English and German. If you need SVT courses in these languages, please let me know in advance of the topics you want us to address. I am available on long time slots during the week and on weekends, during school periods but also during the holidays, where I offer intensive internships if necessary. Please respect the reserved hours. The courses are adjustable in advance. Any course canceled less than 24 hours in advance is due at 50%. Indeed, the time that I could waste managing multiple cancellations and rescheduling of courses is time that I cannot put to the service of the success of my students. In addition, the presence of a framework, of operating rules is necessary for the investment of pupils and students who engage in a process of support. So, I also ask you to be punctual and to start your computer and your videoconferencing software a few minutes in advance in order to start the session on time, not to waste precious minutes of class (the session will end at the time initially scheduled ... 10 minutes late means 10 minutes of lost lessons) and to respect the students who have lessons after you. I look forward to meeting you and bringing you my help and expertise.

    Help with homework Sciences (SVT, Chemistry, Physics, Technology: College - Common Core Sciences: High School)
    Hello, I am in German-Scandinavian L1 LLCER at the Lumière Lyon 2 University. I am currently offering my services for homework assistance to help me support myself. I had my baccalaureate with honors with the specialties History-Geography-Geopolitics-Political Science and Economic and Social Sciences as well as Mathematics in first. -I have already done homework help with two girls aged 8 and 10. -I have 2 brothers (16 and 5 years old) and 2 sisters (9 and 8 years old) two of whom are homeschoolers, so I usually help them with their work. -I gave video lessons to help a terminal prepare for its specialty tests (SES and HGGSP) -I am currently doing homework help for a girl in CP and a girl in CE2 -I am currently giving support lessons and homework help to a third with difficulty dys and ADHD to help him prepare for his patent tests (all subjects) -I also did an internship in a Nursery/Primary school in the middle/large section class. -And I frequent in my close circle people diagnosed with autism, dyslexia as well as with ADHD. I myself have been diagnosed with HP/early. I am therefore used to diversity and I am ready to use different approaches in learning lessons so that the student feels the best possible. I am also very attentive and pedagogue. I offer help in Common Core Sciences until Terminal and in SVT / Physics / Chemistry / Technology until third.

    Student graduated with a License, I propose to help with homework, work method
    First of all, I listen to the person I am helping in order to target their needs. By communicating with the student, I watch the way he likes to work, if it is necessary to direct him to another method can be more effective. Finally, I make sure that the learning is fun and not too "school" so that the student sees it as entertainment and not as a chore!

    Physics. Come to learn the science behind the natural phenomena of the world.
    I am doing a Master's in physics from Finland. I had 3 years of e-learning teaching experience in physics. I aim to make my student's concept clear about all the phenomena happening in the universe so they can think beyond the limit without any problem. After my class, you will be able to think critically about matters of science. After delivering class, I always conduct a short quiz just to check how well my students understand the concepts. If you are a beginner, then for sure this class is for you so you will learn from basic to a high level in a friendly environment.

    Khadidja
    Mathematics, Physics-Chemistry, SVT high school level courses
    I do not believe in the existence of a miracle method, which is why I propose to adapt to the students. I usually carry out a first session in order to get to know the student, his expectations and difficulties and I then put in place an action plan in order to support him as well as possible.
