Establishment and Philosophy

Lern-Forum has over 20 years of experience in review and preparatory lessons.


1991 Lern-Forum is established


1995 The Gymnasium preparatory courses and the secondary school in Zürich are introduced.

2002 Offerings are expanded across canton lines
We rent new offices in Wohlen. At first, we are located on Oberdorfweg, then we move to Zentralstrasse near the Manor. Our Wohlen courses have been popular ever since.
 

2008 Course expansion
In our early years, we primarily offer tutoring in mathematics at all levels in the greater Zürich area and the neighboring cantons. At the time, many young men are preparing for the entrance exam to the Technikum in Winterthur, which now no longer exists. We prepare the students for a clear, mathematical way of thinking, so that they can cross the bridge between theory and practical exercises.

After a year, we add French lessons. Years before the new "Envol" system was adopted in schools, we attend courses for modern language teaching methods. This is one of the reasons why we love this book and why we have a large archive of additional related exercises.

More and more parents want to improve their children's chances for academic success through a good foundational education. We begin specialising in preparatory courses for Gymnasium and secondary school. 

We vary our courses and are able to offer specific prep courses for Informatikmittelschule (IT school), Berufsmittelschule (vocational school) und FMS (general secondary school) anbieten. Individual tutoring stops in 2008.
 

2010 Learning for life
The regular working day has changed character over time. We react to these changes with our new "Learning for life" courses. We test general skills that help students score internship placements at big, respectable firms. We prepare them for the Multi-Check and Basic-Check tests, so they can earn above-average results.

Computer-related skills like typing are more important than ever. In our typing courses, the students can earn the typing certificate that is recognised by the KV (Swiss office-workers' association).They can learn self-contained skills and use them immediately. These kinds of skills are useful for your whole life. We begin adding to this branch bit by bit.

 

2016 Flexible learning
In autumn, Lern-Forum begins offering the new course model modular E-Learning. Flexible learning is a concept that works for students' varying needs. There is now the Gymi prep with milestones, which allows students to prepare optimally for the entrance exam without needing to attend courses each week. Learning does not have to cut into free time. 
Professional essay correction is added in response to the need for individual feedback. The students learn to write essays systematically, and can improve markedly due to specific and individual tips. 

2017 Exercises for independent entrance exam preparation
Learning is a constant process that accompanies your entire life. The students learn German in order to express themselves precisely and without error. As adults, they have no trouble reaching their goals in the workplace or when dealing with official processes. The students have fun learning foreign languages in order to discover the world and come in contact with other cultures.

Preparation for Gymnasium requires solidifying fundamental skills that the students can call upon for the rest of their lives. Two of our Gymnasium teachers have created a resource for independent preparation for the entrance exams for long-term gymnasium, short-term gymnasium and trade school. You can order these materials from us.
 

2018 Syllabus
Today's well-educated parents want to be more involved in their children's educations. This is why we now offer syllabi, detailing the lessons and homework assignments for the supplementary courses. A child's self-confidence is strengthened by his or her parents' interest in the school day. Parents and children can check in at any time and see what was done in the lesson. Direct contact with the teacher is also possible.
