Engineering student from Imperial College London offers to give private lessons in science

Methodology

My teaching method is based on three pillars. Firstly, what I call pleasant rigour, i.e. the fact of spending a good time during lessons but without losing concentration or concern. Secondly, regularity: lessons should happen regularly to progress evenly and be able to revise what has been learnt previously. Thirdly, will from the student as well as from me; I promise to be as dedicated as the student is, but I cannot make anyone progress if they do not want to!

Background

I am a French engineering student at Polytechnique in France and I spend a year in London to get an MSc in Structural Engineering at Imperial College. Not only do I have a scientific baccalaureate (with honours), but I also speak many languages and could help on that (French, English, Italian, a bit of German...)

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £160
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £300

Details

My tariffs are subject to discussion. I am usually paid £35/hr for high school students (aged 16 to 18) and £30/hr for secondary school students but I am happy to try to find a compromise if needed.
