Gymnasium prep at home

Complete collection of practice problems for targeted exam preparation

Practice materials in the form of loose-leaf binders constitute the core of our additional offer.
The math preparation books contain all the material that will be covered on the exam, so you can be certain your child can be completely prepared.

Each topic is further explained in our instructional videos.

This combination gives students the opportunity to work through the material and deepen their understanding in the way that best works for them.

Practice Materials


The math practice materials consist of 6 loose-leaf binders, which are structured as follows:

  1. Introductory exercises
  2. Practice problems of increasing difficulty
  3. Exam questions from previous years

The practice problems are arranged so that there is enough space to conveniently solve each problem directly in the loose-leaf binder.

The lead author, Bilal Yilmaz, is a math teacher and taught at the Hottingen Kantonsschule.

He wrote the entrance exam for IT school (IMS) and was an examiner for the short-track Gymi oral entrance exam.


The German course is clearly organised and the individual topics for the entrance exam build on each other.


The preparation binder for French is new. The author, Sarah Frank, is an experienced French teacher who taught for many years at the Küsnacht Gymnasium.

French is part of the 2020 entrance exam. It will be dropped from the exam beginning in 2021.

Instructional videos

Our experience has taught us that there are many topics that can only be fully understood after several different types of explanations. The customised instructional videos were specifically created for you and offer supporting explanations in every subject area. Be it the "passé composé", powers in maths or sentence analysis – the instructional videos offer the opportunity to hear detailed explanations of the material in addition to those on the theory pages.

Anytime, anywhere, as often as you’d like.

Visual learning

More and more students these days are visual learners. The learn most effectively and efficiently when the material is presented in a visual manner. This dimension is often neglected at school. Teachers either explain topics verbally or give the students texts to read and learn from. These methods do not take advantage of the opportunities for visual learning.

Essay Writing

Since the German grade counts for 40% of the Langzeitgymnasium entrance exam, linguistic expression, text interpretation and grammar are more important for sound preparation than ever.

In our courses, we regularly write essays that are corrected, assessed and graded by a specialized team.
