Daisy
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 :)

Dany
Private lessons in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry
These courses are intended for those who want to improve their understanding in science subjects. The content of the course allows students to be independent and to supplement the knowledge acquired during the course. The goal is to fill the gaps of the pupil and to improve his school results.

Davide
Specialized Physics course for 1st year students of Medicine / Biology
These support courses are intended for students in the first year of the Faculty of Medicine (Geneva, Neuchâtel, Lausanne). For the benefit of a doctorate, I have several years of experience in teaching at the secondary level, Preparatory university and Bachelor. A thorough knowledge of physics programs for medical students (UniGE, UniNE, UNIL) allows me to help you to better prepare and pass your exams. Patient and calm, I will find solutions to transmit to you in a simple and clear way sometimes difficult concepts. You will learn the techniques and tips that will allow you to be effective. I can offer private lessons directly at Uni CMU, HEDS or at your home.

Serdane
Science course (physics-chemistry-bio) for high school students.
My name is Serdane and I offer science classes to high school students who have a hard time finding a way to work that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore confidence to the student: science is within everyone's reach when it is well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). NB: I am on vacation (without internet access) until September 9th included. Looking forward to reading you.

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.

Julien
Private Science Lessons - Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics
Dear student, I am a chemist graduated from EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). I have always been fascinated by science and now I hold a doctorate in solid-state physics from the University of Geneva. Science subjects can help you pass exams. I have been teaching these disciplines for many years during exercise sessions held at the University as well as in private lessons given as an independent. For this reason, you will have the possibility to ask me for explanations on any subject. It is indeed useful that you can progress on the basis of what you already know. You will of course have the choice to ask me for remedial lessons to revise or discover entire chapters. Before the first lesson starts, I will invite you to explain your situation to me freely and free of charge so that we can work effectively from the first lesson. All scientific subjects have in common a method that is called "scientific logic". Whenever the opportunity arises, I will offer you elements of this method because it is this method that will allow you to understand durably and to solve the exercises rigorously. Your studies are serious business, demand that you be taken seriously. Best regards, Julien

Sara
Physics, Maths, Natural Science, Biology, Chemistry, Italian and Spanish
My name is Sara, I'm an italian student with a Bachelor Degree in Physics. Currently, I'm doing a Master in Astrophysics in Berlin. I offer private lessons of Physics and Mathematics for students of different ages. I have accumulated a lot of experience with many different students, having worked also as a Tutor in my University in different support courses. My native language is Italian (so it could be also a chance, if you're interested, to learn in another language), but I speak fluent English and Spanish. I propose adaptive study strategies according to the needs of the student, possibly offering support material such as notes, diagrams and forms. During the lessons, it is possible to face and consolidate together the theoretical part and, gradually, put it into practice with various types of exercises.

Mateo
Graduated from EPFL in mathematics, I give private lessons in Geneva
Mathematics student available to help solve problems, revise an exam or for tutoring. I rely on listening. It is about targeting the needs, gaps and strengths of the person in order to work together and effectively. I am available for long term lessons during the school year (at least once a week).

Sam
REVIEW + SPECIAL COURSES IN PHYSICAL MATHEMATICS ELECTRONICS CHEMISTRY (courses, exercises, exams corrected)
Professor in mathematics, computer science at HEFF in Brussels and before a professor of electronics at the IEPSCF, ENGINEER in electronics ECAMIEN graduated in mathematics-physics and I propose an individualized pedagogy, an aid in the preparation of the interrogations or exams. My goal is to advance the student without overloading him. I give homework after each lesson and periodically provide progress reports. I strongly encourage the student because the state of mind and morale have a direct influence on school results. I am someone understandable and I always try to take each one in his own way. I always start by clarifying the course after giving an example then give an example to the student more to do a complete exercise and finally correct a review together generally it's that methodology but it can change from one case to another review the courses studied in class. give remarks that makes the job easier. give the tips and tricks you need to get a good rating. try to make the student fast in these calculations and these demonstrations and give the way with which he has to manage his duty.

Paul

Renzo
IGCSE Math & Physics lessons - Core and Extended Levels
I have more than 6 years of experience tutoring students from International Schools. During all this time I've shared with them a unique and simple approach to learn and understand Science, obtaining outstanding results with all of them. All my students were astonished by how simple and effective my methodology is, compared with the "standard" one taught by their teachers. This is possible because from all my years of experience I've been able to recognize the common struggles the students had, the weak points of that approach, and elaborated alternative methods to overcome them. My guidance is aimed to be sure that the students excel in these 3 stages: 1.- Understanding the foundations of each topic studied. 2.- Be familiar with the "tricks" required to solve frequently asked questions on past papers. 3.- Given that this is a two-year program, is not only about understand, but also being able to easily recall what we learned when the date of the final exam arrives. That's why in this stage I rely on NLP techniques to show the students the more suitable for them to recall information, based on their preferable and unique learning style.
