Secondary school preparation & remedial teaching in Zurich

Help your child to ease the stressful initial period in the new school, where the pace will be significantly accelerated. In our secondary school preparation courses, we repeat important subject matters from primary school, and thus build a stable framework for the new and further learning content. And the parallel remedial teaching helps your child to keep a clear head even during the running school year.

No tutoring, but productive collaboration

In tutoring, a child learns alone with a teacher. This is different in our preparation courses: they consist of small groups of up to eight people. This is intentional, because it creates a pleasant learning atmosphere in which the children support each other. Nevertheless, we also work with all students individually to eliminate weaknesses or build on strengths.

In general, our experienced teachers combine theory and practice, but the focus is on the practical exercises, as this helps to keep what has been learned better in mind. That is why we have developed hundreds of exercises in different levels of difficulty, which can be solved alone or in a group. In addition, the children learn soft skills such as thinking along, concrete questions and taking precise notes.

Getting through the probationary period with good secondary school preparation

Especially students who undergo a probationary period at a gymnasium benefit from our supporting courses. After all, those who are well prepared for exams not only have less anxiety, but also a much better chances of passing them.
