🚀EVERY CHILD IS A MATHS GENIUS | British Tutor 🇬🇧
.. [British Maths Tutor] ... When I was a young child, I believed I was not a mathematical person. It wasn't until I met an amazing teacher at age 15 that I discovered my mathematical genius and my life was changed forever. I'm eternally grateful to that teacher. My teacher knew that self-image and self-belief is the key to unlock your child's mathematical abilities. Everyone is good at maths, but we all have different styles of thinking. Bad teachers teach every child the same way. My job is find your child's style of mathematics and allow him to discover that for himself. When he discovers that, he will begin to enjoy the beauty and power of mathematics ...and then you will see as the grades begin to soar. 👉Click the blue "Contact Oliver" button above and lets discuss how we can unlock your child's mathematical talents! 😊

Mounir
Excellence Math, Physics, Chemistry - College, High School - 19 average
Give your child the future he deserves. Double graduate of Arts et Métiers ParisTech / Scientific Baccalaureate with honors / 20/20 in mathematics / preparatory class / 5 years of tutoring experience / more than 30 regular students + volunteer in homework assistance associations for students in great difficulties Do you want to significantly increase your child's mathematical average? Do you want it to integrate a selective course? Do you want it to become autonomous? For 5 years, I have helped more than 30 French students in difficulty from middle school (sixth, fifth, fourth, third) and high school (second, first, final) to achieve their goals (good average, patent, bac, PREPA) and to regain self-confidence. My method in 3 points: - in the short term, significantly increase the average by assimilating the course and preparing for the next tests (assimilating the course, writing files, practicing standard exercises, anticipating the teacher's expectations and test questions, having methods of writing) - in the medium term, integrate reasoning and work methods (learn to work regularly in this order: assimilation, training exercise, preparation for the test and analysis of the pass test) - in the long term, set a goal, build the steps to reach this goal, become aware of the SIMPLICITY of math, have confidence in your abilities, release your potential) The formula: a course of 1h30 / 2h * per week for the assimilation of the current chapter + a course before the test * I recommend two courses for those brought up in preparatory class # 1: The first class is a test class # 2: I come to your home # 3: Your child can contact me whenever they want If you want to increase your child's math results, contact me before the next test!

Anmol
Math Tutoring: Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Probability Theory, Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra, Statistics, Trigonometry and many more....!
My name is Anmol and I help students to develop a deep understanding of the core topics of calculus, algebra, trigonometry, statistics, linear programming, etc., from the primary to the college level. Through 7+ years of teaching, I have developed a sense of understanding the students' needs and accordingly devised strategies to help them through. I also specialize in elucidating dyscalculia and help students to overcome the 'fear of math'. Feel free to contact me to discuss further!

Christian
Tutoring Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics (exact subjects).
I am Christian, graduated in chemistry from the University of Utrecht (Biomolecular sciences), and have a PhD in developmental biology (PhD). In the meantime I have been providing tutoring and exam training in mathematics, chemistry and physics to HAVO and VWO students, but also to HBO and Cambridge international A-level students. And, maybe I can help you too! Classes are mainly taught online, but do so in a personal and lively way. For example, I use a marker and whiteboard, so that the atmosphere is comparable to if I were at your house. There are various reasons why a student would like to receive tutoring, and everyone has their own way of learning. I am always very involved with the student's goals and progress, and I am personally optimistic and approachable by nature. My experience is that a safe and motivating atmosphere is created during the lessons, which is contagious and in addition to understanding the material, I also see the self-confidence growing in students. In addition to tutoring, I am a part-time artist (painter and musician), and perhaps my creative, enthusiastic attitude seeps through in how I view science subjects. Sometimes science subjects are experienced as heavy, difficult, boring or rigid. Or maybe you were unlucky with a teacher who couldn't or can't show you the fun in it. You will find that when you understand more about it, you will enjoy it more and you can also get good grades. I'd love to get to know you!

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.

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.

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.

Robert
Professionelle Nachhilfe in Mathematik und Physik für Schüler und Studenten
English: I specialise in giving maths, physics and german tutoring for school curriculum.  I can help pupils (Collège, Lycée) in all subject areas reaching from homework support to specialised tutoring courses which I draft according to individual requirements and needs. In the first lessons we will look what are your objectives and needs to devise a plan for the follow-up classes for an effective progression on your part. As problems are most commonly based on missing basics we will also address them. If this is the case, studying these subjects ends in learning algorithms, vocabulary or grammar by heart, which becomes frustrating for you and for me. I will see to avoid this scenario with exceptions, e.g. the exam next week. Another aspect of my courses will be to also show practical purposes and applications of the respective fields to promote appreciation an joy of the subjects. They don’t need to be only hard work. Deutsch: Ich biete Nachhilfe und/oder Kurse in den Fächern Mathematik, Physik und Deutsch für Schüler und gebe dafür bedarfsorientiert Kurse, d.h. entweder helfe ich bei den Hausaufgaben oder entwerfe speziell Stunden für Schüler, abgestimmt auf ihre Ziele und Bedürfnisse. In den den ersten Kursen  werden wir deine Ziele und Bedürfnisse benennen, sodass ich in Absprache mit dir einen Plan erstellen kann, damit du effektiv vorankommst. Normalerweise sind Probleme in diesen beiden Fächern auf fehlende Grundkenntnisse zurückzuführen , weswegen wir auf diese gesondert eingehen werden. Werden diese übergangen, verkommt das Lernen neuer Inhalte zum auswendig lernen von Algorithen, Vokabeln und Grammatik, was sowohl für dich als auch für mich schnell frustrierend wird. Dies werde ich anders handhaben - mit Ausnahmefällen wie z.B. anstehenden Klausuren. Ein weiterer Aspekt wird es sein, dir den Nutzen und Freude den diese Fächer bieten näher zu bringen. Es muss nicht alles Arbeit sein.

Mathematics and computer science accessible to all
Need a catch-up, tutoring, private lessons or help with homework in mathematics? In computer science ? In logic? I'm here for you! I offer you a personalized approach; because there is no one method that works for everyone, I adapt to the needs and requests of each student (and their parents). The first hour of class will be used to define the student's needs, deadlines and strengths. My courses are aimed at secondary school students of all levels, higher education students outside technical courses (engineering, physics, mathematics, etc.) and anyone wishing to refresh or strengthen their knowledge in mathematics and computer science. Through my reading and my studies in computer science at the École Polytechnique de Louvain, I have amassed a quantity of knowledge in mathematics and computer science that it would be a shame not to share :) Being a student myself, I know the difficulties that certain subjects can cause and the lack of pedagogy of certain teachers. I look forward to working alongside you and unlocking your skills :) I am a master's student in computer science at the École Polytechnique de Louvain (UCLouvain), with a bachelor's degree. Naturally curious, I supplemented my course in computer science with numerous courses in physics (classical and quantum) and logic. I have also been brought to work with people from many backgrounds in various contexts, I learned a great adaptability. I have been volunteering for a long time helping friends and acquaintances in the success of their studies and I hope to be able to use this experience for the benefit of your success :)

Elaine
German, English exam preparation for school and A1 to DSH
I help schoolchildren and adults to learn both German and English. With fun and empathy. What distinguishes my lessons is that I have a lot of patience for my students and practice with them until they understand it. Everyone loves teaching with me. I respond to my students' requests and my goal is to help students make progress without burdening them. I give assignments after every lesson and create regular progress reports.

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.
