Physics - GCSE & A-level ( all boards) Science GCSE ( Synergy & trilogy )

I specialise in effective Physics tutoring. I have 27 years of experience and am also an examiner for Edexcel and OCR (including iAL).
I focus on understanding the key concepts and problem solving strategies. Physics is easy when you know how to approach problems.
I use ICT in a variety of ways to make the concepts clearer - Physics is really just maths with pictures! I will help you develop your visualising skills and show you how to apply different methods to answer questions.

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 :)

Davide
Private lessons in Physics and General Chemistry Secondary (IB included) and University level
These support courses are intended for secondary level students (Matu Suisse or International Baccalaureate), as well as for students in the first year of first year university physics. Patient and calm, I will find solutions to send you simple and clear concepts sometimes difficult, so that you can regain new confidence in yourself. I will teach you the techniques and tips that will allow you to be effective, to prepare well and pass your exams.

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 secondary or university levels (French, Belgian, European or international programs) are given by explanations either in-depth either by a quick course and summary of essential need depending on the case of each student supported by exercises from the book or assessments 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 in their gaps with the best results of Excellent, Very Good and Good as a mention of my students. As well as I can help students to better prepare courses and support to better prepare the duties of CNED in science subjects.

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.

Selma
Science course + tutoring
Engineer from a major French school, I recently obtained a doctorate in Computational Neuroscience. After obtaining a scientific baccalaureate with honors, I did two years of preparatory classes before joining the Ecole des Mines de Saint Etienne on competitive examination. I also did an exchange semester at the National University of Taiwan. During my years of study, I was able to give many courses mainly in mathematics and physics, but also in languages, biology and homework help to students of all levels. I am very patient, pedagogue and I have a real pleasure to teach. I remain available for any further information.

Paul
I am a teacher of mathematics and I give extra hours for private lessons in science subjects
I am a math teacher and I give extra hours for private lessons in science subjects. These courses are intended primarily for students of the cycle and the college in Geneva, pupils of private schools as well as persons who have passed this stage but who need to get back to level for professional needs. Therefore, I am available in general within 3 days of your request, I also move in the canton of Geneva via GPT, and travel expenses are included in my rates. Finally, for a follow-up on the long term, I can give you exercises to do between sessions and also correct them at home. I speak and understand English, but my classes will be mainly in French. Hope to meet you.

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.
