    About Me

    Hi, I’m Joe. I started ChildFirst Education a few years ago after nearly 10 years of experience in education. After my PGCE in 2008 I worked in an inner London Primary School for three years before leaving. What concerned me most was the levels of stress on children, families and staff.

    I re-trained as a Play-Therapist and started working with children and families more holistically in their homes as a home-school tutor, after-school tutor and/or mentor for a variety of reasons.

    I have home-schooled a children aged between 8-14 and tutored children/worked with families across London/Kent focussing on school entrance exams (Alleyns, Putney High, Dulwich College, Colfe’s), 13+, 11+, 7+, confidence, self-esteem and a range of other issues.

    I have worked with children and families from all over the world with autism, down syndrome, dyslexia, ADD, auditory processing, emotional/behavioral difficulties, epilepsy and selective mutism.

    Experience / Qualifications

    Private lessons in English for all levels.
    I offer English language courses for all levels. If I am asked for academic support (from primary to university), it will mainly be a question of reviewing, with the pupil or the student, the points of the subject which pose a problem to him (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.). If I am asked for a general learning of the English language, it will be mainly, but not exclusively, a learning by dialogues in English language, which will allow the student, as and when, to acquire vocabulary, understand grammar and fix linguistic structures in your head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in English more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. Serious guaranteed. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

    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

    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.
