University application and Cambridge NSAA/interview guidance

I'm looking forward to helping students apply to study biology (natural sciences) at university. I will offer my students ideas for which universities to apply for based on their interests and give them advice on writing an amazing personal statement. In addition, I can provide guidance for Cambridge applicants on how to fill out their SAQ and prepare natural scientists for the NSAA. Moreover, I’m hoping to make my students more confident at the Cambridge Natural Sciences interview by arranging mock interviews and discussing interview style questions.

About Me

Hello I'm Leia! As a tutor, I’m looking forward to meeting students with the same passion and help them broaden their understanding of nature.

I love tutoring as I enjoy inspiring my students to reach their full potential and watching them make progress. As a tutor, I like helping my students understand topics covered at school well as going through difficult homework together. I also ask questions that occasionally exceed the scope of the textbooks to expand my student’s understanding. In addition, I feel doing past exam papers is a crucial part of exam preparation. Therefore, I will look over difficult exam questions with students preparing for exams and set them past papers as part of their revision goal. It is important that the student has good exam and revision techniques, so I will give them my top tips. In addition, being fluently bilingual in both English and Mandarin, I can tutor in both languages, which is often useful for international applicants, Mandarin speaking students new to the UK or students seeking to improve their Chinese.

In conclusion, I see myself as a passionate, confident and supportive tutor and I’m excited to work with my students to achieve their goals.

My sessions on A level biology and chemistry are designed to help students curate an interest in the natural world and intellectually stimulate them. I also aim to help students catch up with difficult topics covered in class and make them more confident. Lessons can also focus on revision and exam technique. In class I will cover the A level curriculum, offer guidance for completing challenging homework and integrate additional knowledge if the student is interested. I may also set tasks to complete before the next session to help the student make progress.

I give private lessons or in groups of 4 in Mathematics - Analysis - Matrices - Statistics - Algebra - Geometry - Physics - Mechanics - Electricity - Chemistry - Organic Chemistry - Biology, Geology to students from primary to Terminal of French program or Bac Lebanese SV, SG and SE or 1st year at the student's home or remotely by interactive board shared with the student; It is a VERY MODERNIZED PROFESSIONAL method (MUCH BETTER THAN WEBCAM AND BETTER THAN WE ARE AT THE SAME PLACE) which works by clicking on the link that I send by skype or zoom and which serves as a table of large spaces or pages, equipped with the tools (Pens of different colors, ruler, geometric tools, eraser, ..) on which we can both write, project the assignment to correct, explain and save the work. The conversation is done by Skype or Zoom for an individual or by group of 4 students only for each virtual class. FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO WORK BY GROUP AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EXCLUSIVE RATES. Tariffs are reduced due to the economic and financial situation in Lebanon. ATTENTION FOR GROUPS OF 4: NEVER BOOK BEFORE WRITING TO GIVE YOU CONFIRMATION BY MESSAGE.

Homework help & MATH lessons on COLLE / St PAUL & Surroundings - 06 By PROFESSOR OF TRADE & PROFESSIONAL COACH
Homework help & MATH lessons on La COLLE / St PAUL & SURROUNDINGS - By PROFESSOR & PROFESSIONAL COACH On the 06 (ALPES MARITIMES) Hello, First of all, I wanted to wish you an excellent return to school, as well as a peaceful year in order to achieve your goals, aware that the economic situation can prove to be delicate at certain times. This is why I propose to accompany your child through his school career with more ease and serenity. To date, it is different contexts that lead me to exercise my profession of Graduate Teacher & Graduate Professional Coach as well. Until last year, in front of a whole class as well as in Private Lessons. And since this year, in face-to-face mode in Private Lessons at Home as well as in videoconference mode, moreover practiced for ten years with our Students at the University. Besides that, my teaching environment has changed greatly, especially since the appearance of the Covid. This had the positive consequences of making our young secondary school students evolve in this brand new mode of learning and communication that is videoconferencing for them. What turned out to be a great success even if our less mature young people are still very demanding of attention and psycho-emotional connection in order to build their autonomy in peace. Over the past two decades, I have implemented proven methodological approaches. For some, borrowed from Theater, the Davis method (mind mappings / colors), Professional Coaching (my specialty) in order to boost your child's motivation ... My main goal is to develop a certain agility in your child, in all subjects. For now, as for his future, when I will no longer be present by his side ... In the end, working on a subject in order to gain points does not seem to me to be a sufficiently nurtured objective; convinced by the fact of exercising alongside the profession of Mental Coach with our young Athletes between Nice and Cannes, as well as in Europe (by videoconference), as part of their preparation for the French Tennis Championships ... Finally, Professor in General Education, mainly in scientific subjects, I suggest you support your child, to gain agility in the construction of his school career, in this period so unique but oh so rich in its opportunities and challenges. For the rest, I am at your disposal if you wish, in particular to facilitate the procedures which will allow you to quickly obtain a tax deduction of 50%. See you soon Corinne-Mer.

Philippe
Physics-chemistry extras course by physicist and professor of physics
The courses are adapted to each student, his achievements, his difficulties and his objectives. They are based essentially on the practice of exercises and exam subjects, supplemented by the clarification of theoretical notions that would not have been understood. Clear explanations and effective advice allow you to acquire ease and serenity to fill gaps, better organize your work, regain self-confidence.

Louis
School Support in Math, English, Science, Biology, Physics.
I have been on this platform for several years now, since I started I have had the opportunity to teach many children who did not find their place in the current school system. Having been in their place, I understand them quickly and I am comfortable explaining to them. In the meantime I also had the chance to go on a humanitarian trip and teach children in need in Vietnam, it was a more than enriching experience and I now carry a very particular importance to education in general. I am now a student of the Grande École hôtelière de Lausanne which allows me to open my field of vision to many other subjects and cultures. My first internship has just ended at the Ritz Carlton Tokyo and I am back in Switzerland, more motivated than ever.
