    About Me

    Let me introduce myself briefly. I am a citizen of USA, Switzerland and Peru. I speak five languages fluently and I have previously studied international relations and political science in London as I wanted to be a diplomat at first. In my early adolescence I grew up in Switzerland and in my early teens my parents decided to venture to Singapore where I graduated in the German School Singapore.

    I slipped into the educational world pretty much by accident 5 years ago. Before that I was a business man located in Singapore I started as a tutor and then follows up with a fast track teaching course in the most widely recognized teachers school in Zurich (PH) Switzerland to be trained as a primary teacher with the latest cutting edge tools and pedagogy. Nevertheless I decided to focus on private teaching for one of the most prestigious international schools in Zurich (Zurich International School).

    My passion is to nurture children from any age and background and in almost every subject they offer. What I love the most is to be able to have a wide variety of kids who give me their trust to learn at the pace that they want. It is essential to me that the child comes first. One of the reasons why I wanted to be different then other educators is that I focus on the strengths of the child and not the deficits. The word “mistake” is banned from my mind. What’s sets me apart from the others is that I use my intuition and I have a great ability to improvise. Please feel free to contact me for a casual chat.

    Private lessons in Math, Physics, Chemistry and SVT
    The Math, Physics, Chemistry and SVT courses are either thorough explanations or a quick and essential summary of the needs of each student supported by book exercises or assessments and exams from other high schools. My experience is too long and for years I have learned methods for each case and for each student to fill in their gaps with the best results of Excellent, Very Good and Good as a mention of my students. As well as I can help students to better prepare courses and support to better prepare the duties of CNED in science subjects

    Maths for primary or secondary school students. Former IB student
    Hi everyone! I am a Masters student at ETH Zurich in Mechanical Engineering. I enjoy teaching maths and sciences to others, and would like help you out with some maths. I am suited to help others learn maths because I am able to quickly identify weaknesses and knowledge gaps. I like to see the problem from the perspective of the student, and build up fundamental knowledge and understanding from there. I have the belief that maths can be simplified tremendously by having a conceptual understanding. I will contact you to ask for a description of what you need help with so I can make a structured plan. I believe the best way to learn is through exercises, so I will prepare a set of exercises at different levels.

    Physics and Mathematics made easy for you. We can do it !
    I started loving maths at school, when I was 12 years old, and since then I continue learning every day. Mathematics, Physics, Science and Technology in general are my passions. According to my experience, only when you begin understanding a subject, do you begin loving it.

    Gaspard
    Engineer graduated ETHZ, EPFL offers tutoring courses in math and physics in Zurich
    Student engineer, passionate about mathematics with experience in tutoring. I have given several courses for 6 years now - particular course, and student assistant for courses in analysis and mechanics structures. This allowed me to develop an effective method: start by checking that the student is familiar with his course, and understand the basic concepts, and then apply them on exercises adapted to his level. I always have a lot of patience, enthusiasm and many ways to explain the material to guide the student to the conclusion. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    Let’s Learn Español, or English! Classes made according to your level and goals!
    Acquiring a language is an experience that should be paciently guided by a tutor/teacher/mentor, not by a tirant. As a general rule, I only ask for effort and responsibility. I will facilitate your learning process, motivate you and hopefully have fun together while learning. Let’s learn and/or practice English!

    Computer Science, Programming, Mathematics Tutoring
    I am offering private computer science and mathematics for interview preparation, SATs, GREs and AP tests, and for anybody who'd like to get a head start learning to program before college or as a career switch. About Me: I'm a PhD student at ETH Zürich, specializing in AI and Machine Learning. Here I've been a teaching assistant for discrete math for computer scientists, reliable artificial intelligence and software architecture and engineering. I have a bachelors in mathematics and computer science and a masters in computer science from CMU, the top university in the world for computer science. There I was the sole teaching assistant for complexity theory taught by the Turing Award winner Manuel Blum, and for formal languages automata and computability, and for computational discrete math, and for algorithm design and complexity. Here, my research was on programming language design, and thus I am proficient at using and teaching any programming language. I've also worked as a software engineer at Apple and Google in silicon valley, and built and sold a startup.

    Math course any level, support or deepening
    Hello, In September, I returned to the Master of Applied Mathematics at ETH Zurich, after graduating from Ecole Polytechnique. Also I offer mathematics courses for all levels (except doctorate of course!)) I already have some experience in maths classes, from my studies of course, but also glues (oral exams for prepas classes) that I gave a year at Lycée Sainte-Geneviève, and occasional courses) from the patent and regularly) from my integration at Polytechnique. So I have known many student profiles and I appreciate this diversity, because I have to adapt to each one of them. Typically, a lesson can begin with a course check, with a focus on important points (with examples and basic application exercises), followed by more complicated exercises. Throughout the lessons the exercises will evolve so that the student gains autonomy and self-confidence at the mathematical level ... Mathematics is one of my passions, and if I do not always share it, I like to think that my students have always been able to progress!

    Math, Statistics, Physics Edexcel Levels exam preparation
    Experienced and specialised tutor prepares students for Edexcel AS, A Levels and IGCSE exams in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics. GUARANTEED SUCCESS WITH 15% REFUND IN CASE OF FAILURE (*)!!!! A little about myself and my background: I am graduate of the Department of Mathematics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. For the last eight years, my passion for the field that I studied and the will to share it with others, the joy to connect with, guide and evolve people, had temporarily set the potential for a career as a teacher. I found extremely rewarding to teach high-school children and provide supporting education to university students in Math, Physics and Chemistry. All my students had 100% in their exams and today they continue their education dream in the university of their choice. Since I was offering private lessons I had the chance to bond with every single student, to build trust and inspire admiration of the subjects which led to continuous improvement and achievements. This ability and the excellent feedback of the students and their parents drew the attention of a supportive education night school that offered me a permanent role as a teacher. From 2017, I live and work as a teacher in a Private School here in Zurich, Switzerland. I am exciting for this position, because I believe it utilizes the knowledge and technical skill set that I obtained and at the same time improve my soft skills, test my limits and provide me with valuable professional experience. I strongly believe that the most important part of a science class is for the student to understand the reason behind and this usually can easily be succeeded with real-life examples. Every student is different and the teacher needs to adapt the class to his needs, strengths and weakness. (*) The student will be given an evaluation test in the beginning of the class to prove his level and background. Depending on his level, given personal preparation and good collaboration with the tutor the corresponding exam success is guaranteed.
