Maths or Physics help for upcoming exams (GCSE, A-level)
I know the next term can be super stressful leading up to exams which will determine the next years of your life, so I'd like to offer my service to help you feel more confident to smash them! Teaching style is much more casual than school but we can work through any topics you're finding tricky and find efficient methods to make things stick in your mind. I can't wait to meet you and get started :)

Physics course: working methods, monitoring and permanent evaluation
From the introduction to physical sciences to the Bac through competitions or patents such as CAP, BFEM, BT, .... we offer complete and very accessible courses for any profile of learners in chemistry and physical. We will explain the course and then concretize by exercises of application. Also suggest series of exercises of increasing degree of difficulty if the student does not already have one. From this the learner will be able to fill in his gaps and master his lessons well and then apply them as necessary. We carry out a regulated follow-up of the progress according to the program. Homework is prepared regardless of its nature: home or control. There are also permanent exchanges with the parents in order to better find the methods and solutions specific to each student. Thank you

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.

Excellence Math, Physics, Chemistry - 19 average - New program 2022
Give your child the future he deserves. Graduated from Arts et Métiers ParisTech / 20/20 in mathematics at the Bac / preparatory class / Private teacher for 10 years 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: - short term, significantly increase the average by assimilating the course and preparing for the next tests (assimilating the course, writing sheets, training in standard exercises, anticipating the teacher's expectations and test questions, having writing methods) - medium term, integrate reasoning and working methods (learn to work regularly in this order: assimilation, training exercise, test preparation and test analysis passes) - long-term, set a goal, build the steps to achieve this goal, become aware of the SIMPLICITY of math, have confidence in your abilities, unlock your potential) The formula: one or two sessions of 1h30/2h per week for the assimilation of the course and to prepare for the test. - Classes on Google Meet - Virtual whiteboard to assimilate faster - Library of 10 books online - More than 1000 exos online Questions ? Contact me and I will answer you.

Gaetan
Engineer & PhD student teaches maths physics sciences English French
Hello, I am an engineer graduated from a high school (INSA Lyon in France), and I obtained my scientific baccalaureate with honors. I am French and I teach in Dubai. I have more than 6 years of experience in private lessons and have very good results with my students. I teach science courses: math, physics, chemistry, engineering, mechanics, etc. Given the current context, I want to help the students to progress faster and to prepare them well so that they do not have delays. When we run into difficulties, it is sometimes because school methods do not work well for us. This is why I have adopted for 6 years a methodology different from the standard, and which has largely proven its worth. I am interested in cognitive science and effective learning techniques, and I apply the methods recommended by the best researchers in neuroscience. This allows the student to progress rapidly in the following 4 areas: logic and comprehension, memorization, motivation, and concentration. Have a good day, Gaëtan

Engineering science course - physics - mechanical engineering - production management
Holder of a State Engineering DIPLOMA in mechanical engineering from ENSEM-Casablanca, Morocco, in 2014 and associate professor in mechanical engineering from the year 2016, I acquired solid knowledge in the field of engineering sciences. engineer especially in mechanical engineering as well as teaching pedagogy. I consider myself to be a versatile profile, since I have experiences in the industrial field (design, production ...) as that of higher education: preparation of courses (calculation, design, thermodynamics, hydraulics ... .), give technical training, supervise students' projects and internships .... I worked on a lot of design and realization project of manufacturing ranges which helped me master the different CAD, DAO AND CAM software such as catia V5, solidworks, autocad, featureCAM .. I hope this presentation was clear and concise.

Etudiant en école d'ingénieur donne cours de Maths et de Physique-Chimie niveaux Collège, lycée et préparation aux CPGE scientifiques
Mes cours s'adressent aux élèves de collège et lycée et aux étudiants se préparant à entrer dans une CPGE scientifique. Ces cours peuvent être aussi bien du soutient scolaire que de l'approfondissement de certaines notions. Lors de mes cours, je procède souvent en deux parties : - d'une part je fais des rappels de cours sur les notions étudiées en classe (pour bien maîtriser les bases); - d'autre part je donne des exercices durant lesquels je guide l'élève, je lui donne des conseils pour les calculs et la méthodologie.

IB Math & Physics [HL/SL] for international school students
I graduated from the IB programme myself in 2017, therefore I'm very much familiar with the problems that students face during IB Math & Physics. I'm currently studying Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, and looking back, I realize that most of the problems I encountered during the IB would have been very easily solved with the help for a tutor, since my teachers didn't have the time to help me individually. As such, I'm here to help you with each of the different topics in Math & Physics, as well as providing some ideas for your IA, and also some advice about studying for the IB in general. I'm also available to help in-between lessons, for any questions about homework or practice exams that you may have, which I believe is actually the most valuable part of having a personal tutor.
