Primary English, Maths and Entrance Exams Preparation

Private Tuition for children aged 4-12. Supporting students globally to improve their confidence and attainment.

I am a highly qualified and vastly experienced Primary School and EFL teacher offering private tuition to students in the UK and internationally.

I am able to support children’s learning journeys, boosting their confidence and their attainment through fun, interactive lessons that support, challenge and inspire.

With over 20 years of experience, I have taught in the state sector and in Independent Prep Schools in the UK as well as international settings in Europe and Asia. I have worked with students across the globe from the age of 4 through to adults, most recently as Head of Juniors at a leading London Independent School.

I have a proven track record of excellent results including supporting children in gaining 7+ and 11+ places at some of the UK’s top Independent and Grammar Schools. I thrive on nurturing children with low levels of confidence and self esteem to ensure that they are able to close gaps in their learning and feel more confident and able to participate in the school environment. I also tutor Home Education students in both academic and creative subject areas.

I graduated from Warwick University with a degree in Ancient History and Archaeology followed by a Primary PGCE from the University of Roehampton. I have also gained an MA in Education through the University of Bath.

I offer online lessons, using a variety of platforms such as Zoom and Skye depending on the location of my students.

Raef
Private lessons in Math, Physics, Chemistry and SVT
The courses of Mathematics - Analysis - Matrices - Statistics - Algebra - Geometry - Physics - Mechanics - Electricity - Chemistry - Organic Chemistry - Biology, Geology of the French or European French or English programs (Secondary or university levels) are given by explanations either in depth or by a rapid course and summary of essential need according to the case of each student supported by exercises from the book or by evaluations 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 their gaps with the best results of Excellent, Very Good, and Good as mentioned by my students. I can also help students to better prepare for courses and support them to better prepare for the duties of CNED in science subjects.

Private math lessons - Limoges or online - Qualified and experienced math teacher
I am a qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career by teaching remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual academic support by following educational training at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private mathematics lessons daily for over ten years. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I provide my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (online via the internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This board is specially designed to promote student/teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to take advantage of it.

Adam
Math has never been easier !. Mathematics support for secondary, higher education, Bachelor.
I offer math lessons suitable for all levels and ages, up to master's level. I offer different types of courses: - Regular lessons to maintain a constant level of competence. - "Intense" courses over a period of a few days or weeks, during which we will work for several hours in a row in order to prepare for an exam or a specific project. - Preparatory courses to help students make the transition to higher education. My main objective is to help and accompany the student by offering theoretical courses, as well as practical exercises to apply the theory that we have studied together. I place great importance on concrete examples, because theoretical mathematics can seem abstract to many people. I can also provide support to master's/bachelor level students who carry out studies or data analyzes as part of their written work. I am able to assist you in various areas of mathematics such as algebra, analysis, statistics, algorithms, logic, etc. Feel free to contact me for more details !

Salah Eddine
Math support courses for high school students (Science Maths, Science Exp, Letters ...)
As a teaching professional, I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge. My goal is to provide quality education. I am aware that some topics may seem complex, but often this is simply the result of an inadequate explanation by the teacher. With me, you will discover a real interest in the material! We strive together to achieve academic excellence, overcoming the shortcomings and difficulties encountered by your child. Studies will become a pleasant experience for him. In addition to the courses, I can also help with school orientation, identifying their preferences and highlighting the advantages and benefits of a fulfilling educational ambition. The sessions generally take place according to the following stages: 1️⃣ The first sessions are devoted to the assessment of the student's level in order to detect existing gaps. 2️⃣ Next, we create a personalized plan to address these gaps, including the number of hours of work needed, specific areas to focus on, and appropriate training and development exercises. 3️⃣ We stay in constant contact with the student's class teacher, to keep up to date with the latest requirements and ensure a consistent approach. 4️⃣ Subsequently, I provide exams similar to those that are likely to be asked in class, to prepare the student effectively. 5️⃣ Upon request, I write a regular report, usually monthly, to keep parents informed of their child's progress throughout their course. I adapt my methodology according to the specific needs of each student, thus offering them a personalized and adapted work approach. In addition, I offer crash courses for students preparing for the start of the school year, allowing them to start the year well prepared, with a solid lead on the school curriculum. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help you.
