Learn Physics, Chemistry and Maths from an Astrophysicist

I am resident of Founex and I work as a PhD researcher in Astrophysics at the Geneva Observatory in Versoix. I have 2 years of teaching experience in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Leeds, UK along with 1 year of private tutoring in Chemistry.

To get a firm grasp on a difficult topic, I believe it is essential to start with the basics and then to work towards the core of the problem. A curriculum focused on independent thinking and steady practise will be taught to the student. Whether the goal is to prepare for an exam or homework; lessons will be altered to match the individual's needs. Mock Test/Exams will be conducted at regular intervals.

I hope to share my excitement and passion for natural sciences and mathematics with the students in an open and 'there is no such thing as a difficult problem' way!

I am available to teach students at my home in Founex or travel to location a few kilometers around Founex or Coppet. I am also available to teach via zoom or skype.

De langue maternelle française, je propose également des cours de français aux personnes anglophones ou germanophones. Pédagogue, dynamique et patiente, j’offre des appuis de qualité adaptés à chaque élève. Je peux me déplacer dans la région de la Côte ainsi qu'en Ville de Genève.

Zen
Private lessons in mathematics and physics. Secondary and university level.
I also give private lessons to upper and secondary students. I adapt to the demand and level of each student. I can follow the school / university program or push beyond. I prefer a classical education: 1) understanding of the subject and its importance in the field of study or in everyday life 2) illustration by examples 3) exercises allowing to assimilate well and finally to master the subject I attach great importance to understanding and logical reasoning. I progress with the student by also making him work outside contact hours if he wishes

IB program, A levels, GCSE, all subjects: math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, SAT / ACT and more.
IB PROGRAM EXPERT. A levels, GCSE all subjects: math, physics, chemistry, biology, economics, SAT / ACT and more. Full time professional tutor. I have been teaching all IB subjects since 2011. I am a native English speaker and I have an engineering degree. I have been tutoring students from ASB, BFIS and BSB since 2011. I am experienced and certified in continuing education. I provide personal and individual guidance for a wide range of subject areas. I contact the teachers for each subject the student has, to ensure that the material that is being covered in the tutoring session is the exact same as that of the class. My students immediately see a noticeable improvement in their grades as the I help them to focus on time management skills as well. I focus on enhancing study skills and encourage the students to become autonomous learners that strive for academic excellence.

Léa
Tutoring / math lessons, open to all ages!
Elementary, secondary and CEGEP math courses. Explanation of concepts less well understood by the student and moral support and motivation in order to support him as much as possible in his studies! Good command of mathematics and preparation of the course before each meeting!

Zephyr
Mathematics and Physics tutoring for Secondary Education student in Antwerp
I study Mathematics at the University of Cambridge (graduated June 2023) and systematically obtained >90% in Mathematics and Physics. My English is excellent: I have lived and studied in Ontario and now live in Cambridge 6 months every year to study. I am familiar with the English maths and physics terminology as my Mathematics degree at the University of Cambridge is taught in English. My math teacher wrote about me in her recommendation letter for the University of Cambridge: “And very important as well, he is a good communicator and apt to share his knowledge. Whenever we do teamwork, a quiz or a game in the classroom, everyone wants to be in the same group as Zephyr. ” I have 4 younger brothers who regularly ask me for help when they are stuck with their school work. By helping them with this I learned how to explain the subject matter. I also regularly explain mathematics and physics subject matter to friends in the third and second grade. In the meantime I also have experience with paying tutoring. When I thought about which student job I would most like to do to earn a little extra, tutor in mathematics and physics turned out to be self-evident because I am passionate about this and want to help others. Education is the foundation of success, and mathematics is perhaps the most important subject. It is important for me to discuss with you, parents and student at the end of the first lesson whether what you expect will be feasible. This way I can be sure that you will be satisfied with the lessons. My goal is to update the student as quickly as possible in any area where there is a backlog, so that the student is not even more behind. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Online / at home, MATH higher levels and all other levels, very experienced (ex-teacher and 8 years of private lessons)
I offer support, refresher and advanced courses in mathematics. I know how to adapt my course to each of my learners. I have a dynamic teaching and pedagogue My lessons take place at your home or through a camera that films what I write plus computer camera for video conferencing. So you can strengthen your level of mathematics wherever you are, without any geographical constraints and in a fun way. It's practical and effective. Acquiring methods, organizing knowledge and reasoning to solve the exercises, using memorization techniques, these are often the important points to develop in order to allow the student to be autonomous and thus achieve his objectives. I tend to be open and laid back, but precise and rigorous EX- Engineer graduated in chemistry and textile, former student of prepa class. "higher and special math",. I made substitutions of math teacher in the secondary. I have devoted myself for 7 years to individual lessons, with students of all levels and more specifically students in preparation for French scientific baccalaureate, international baccalaureate or cycle.

Raed
Study counseling Physics and Chemistry + Entrance exam Doctor / dentist
Physics and chemistry are very interesting subjects, but also subjects that many have difficulty with. Are you in secondary education or in higher education and do you have difficulty with these subjects, how to approach them, etc ... I like to give tutoring and I would like to help people not only understand these subjects but also how to do them correctly study so that you can also apply this to other courses. In addition to these two subjects, I also provide guidance for the Entrance Examination Doctor Dentist. I am a 2ba student in biomedical sciences at the University of Antwerp. I work patiently and first try to have an idea of my student so that I have a focused approach, we discuss the problems together, solve them together (plans, physics exercises, etc.). I am very enthusiastic and always try to give my full 100 percent to my student and to be a kind of friend to him. Hopefully I can help you with your further studies! Raed

Marko
Mathematics class for beginners (elementary school), high school students and GRE test mathematics
I can teach you mathematics - basics or advanced. I also can prepare you for GRE test. Math is all about practise and good teachers, so if you have both that should not be a problem for you. I have always been excellent in math and I really like it and I would like to help people. I can solve different type of problems and help you to understand it better. Math is mostly just practicing, but if you have a good teachers, as I had, then you can save a lot of time in that way.

Math (SAT, SAT subject tests, A level, GCSE, Calculus 1-2), Physics (SAT subject test, A level, GCSE, Fundamentals of physics), English
I help student with finding their own way of understanding the logic behind mathematics and physics. From where and how to derive formulas and work with given problems without even meeting them before. My way of teaching English is different from a standard English courses. I work more on boosting self confidence of a student, as an English speaker, rather than concentrating on grammar of the Language.

A Maths teacher teaches Maths, Algebra and Geometry
An experienced teacher at your disposal for: - Methodology adapted to all levels. - Upgrading. - Consolidation of achievements. - Preparation for an examination / competition (CEB, CE1D, CESS.etc). - Help with homework and lessons. - Complementary exercises and review as controls and exams approach. - Advice and supervision at the level of working methods. - Recommended teaching methods. Currently, I am doing my maths aggregation. I am already an electromechanical engineer, graduated as a senior technician in electronics and electrical engineering and who passed my bachelor's degree in mathematics with honors. I teach in different technical fields and especially mathematics, algebra and electronics. At the level of my teaching methods, I use those that are advised pedagogically, I always try to explain and detail as much as possible the courses and I do not pass to the following stages until after making sure that the student understood what I explained. As a teacher, I already have a good teaching experience with students since 4 years. What is certain, I make sure to always go as far as possible to explain the exercises.

Statistics and associated software and techniques: R, SPSS, Excel
I have recently noticed that many social science and health science students have difficulty learning this discipline. This class is my answer to that need. My courses will be adapted to the needs of each specific student, always trying to motivate them and make learning as effective, interesting and entertaining as possible. I am convinced that a good teacher is capable of making the most difficult subject easy. Also that a teacher is much more than a source of knowledge. Although each educational institution has its own philosophy, statistics are based on a series of subjects and capacities that are usually common in all plans: 0.- Combinatorial 1.- Descriptive statistics 2.- Probability 3.- Random variable 4.- Probability models 5.- Principles of statistical inference 6.- Estimates and contrasts We will treat each of these topics in an eminently practical way, which is how it is best learned. Finally, I can also teach you to enhance all these capabilities through specific software: SPSS and Excel. And R for the more adventurous. R is magnificent. It just makes you want to learn statistics (and data science). Anyway ... What are we waiting for? Let us begin!
