Edward
Maths and Economics Tutor. I want to help students achieve top grades!
I specialise in tutoring Economics and Mathematics at all school level exams. My goal goes beyond help students to achieve higher grades and in the process make it more enjoyable. I specialised in Economics and Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, achieving a 2:1 in my degree. I achieved 10A*s & 1A at GCSE level and 3A*s & 1A at A Level (Mathematics (A*), Further Mathematics (A*), Economics (A*) & Geography (A)). Despite this success I really struggled with academia prior to my GCSEs and absolutely hated revision/exams! I think this view was compounded by my dyslexia. However my track record shows that I have been able to overcome these challenges through what I think is a really effective learning method! During sessions I will work through the theory, ensuring that it is well understood. Following the sessions I will assign homework, which will be used to map progress. I also want to actively engage in the students lives, as I provide mentorship!

Passionate native Italian to teach you both essential and authentic ITALIANO!
This class is for aiming for confident Italian speakers and practice is the best way to improve language fluency.

Private English lessons (language, pronunciation, culture ...)
Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, so I adapt my teaching to the needs of my student. Remedial lessons, pronunciation, writing or general comprehension assistance. Learning the language alone or combined with culture, anything is possible! I have a bachelor's degree in translation (English / Chinese) as well as a master's degree in multilingual communication (English / French). At the same time, I also took intensive English courses at a university in Florida and courses in modern language teaching. Do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

Yen-Chun,
Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Yolanda
ESL/EFL Online English Language Tutor - Individuals
My lessons are student-centred, flexible, and fun! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student. The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress and changing needs throughout the duration of a specific course. Learning areas identified may include: * Refining your pronunciation * Practicing everyday language and conversational skills * Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary * Reading comprehension and practice * Writing correction and practice * Job interview preparation Lessons are conducted in English, since this has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language. It is recommended to book a course of at least 20 hours to start with.
