English Lessons that will keep your child or teen interested and happy!

Preschool (3-5 yrs.) to Adult ENGLISH LESSONS: Creative and unique, practical conversational English and grammar presented in a fun way by a teacher who is English mother tongue.. For these lessons and for homework coaching, I am drawing on experience gained through my ongoing work through years of traveling, of tutoring French-speaking students English, and English- speaking students French. I have divided my time between Vermont, USA and Geneva for several years. I have combined the work with the kids at times with Art projects to make it more engaging. English lessons can be given to speakers of other languages as well, using similar methods. Ages 3-8: Dialogues, songs with illustrated posters, skits, repetition of simple conversations, circle games . 8-12 : same as above with addition of beginning grammar with workbook, crossword puzzles, homework assistance, CD rom lessons. Vocabulary. 12 and up: More advanced conversations useful when traveling,more reading out loud, “dictées” for vocabulary, current magazines and newspapers, speaking about photos from English-speaking countries, songs.

Private lessons in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology

I provide tutoring for students in the area of science and mathematics. The lessons are designed to enable students to improve their understanding of the school subjects and thus their grades. The target audience are students from primary school up to high school. In some cases I am also able to help university students. The lesson is usually roughly structured in three parts: - Together with the student I go over the homework, or the work that was done during the last (email hidden) questions are answered and facts explained. - The learned concepts are applied repeatedly to problems and exercises to fortify the understanding and help the student become more at ease with applying them. - If the time and the situations allows it, the student is prepared for his next lesson at school so that he or she will be able to follow it better. In addition to the subject matter I try to teach how to learn, which is a skill that is sadly not often taught at school. This includes, amongst others, how to organize, how to take notes, how to memorize facts and formulas and how to prepare for exams. This provides a longer lasting benefit for the student. I am also comfortable with students and pupils with rather severe difficulties such as dyscalculus (basically dyslexia for maths) and fear of school or aggravated lack of motivation. With these students I make sure to take my time, without putting them under pressure, and explain facts in simple words until they are certain to have understood them. As I am equally fluent in English, German and French, the lessons can take place in any of those languages.
