Preparation for exams

Important admission, transfer or final exams are regularly encountered in the course of your schooling. We offer you intensive and targeted preparation for these examinations. We conduct simulations, provide support with regard to learning contents and specifically focus on examination strategies.

Some of the examinations that we prepare for include:

  • Swiss university entrance qualification (Matura, written and oral)
  • Admission tests for grammar schools
  • Admission and final exams for Business/Commercial/Informatics/Specialised/Vocational Middle Schools (WMS/HMS/IMS/FMS/BMS)
  • Tests for transfer from primary to secondary school
  • Basic-Check and Multicheck (aptitude tests)
Individual or in a group

We offer you tuition in the form of individual or group lessons. Individual lessons allow us to focus intensively on your specific requirements, close gaps and teach you learning strategies. Classes with other students have the advantage of group dynamics. Tackling a challenge together motivates and promotes learning from one another. Students can often solve problems more successfully in small groups.

Coaching

Students often lack working and learning strategies as well as motivation. They feel stressed, are scared of exams and therefore unable to perform as well as they could. Targeted and comprehensive coaching will support you in your current situation and put you on a successful learning path. Tuition also includes developing learning and working techniques that specifically meet your needs, working out automated examination strategies and showing you how to cope with stress. We promote your motivation in this way and get you ready to face examination situations confidently.

School holiday courses

Many students are unable to cope when it comes to systematically catching up on knowledge gaps and preparing intensively for several exams. This is where our group holiday courses can help. In groups of 3–6, you will learn individually focussing on specifically defined key areas. We consolidate knowledge in the subjects and prepare you for exams. At the same time, we train learning strategies with you. In this way, our programme “Learn All You Can” helps to make learning generally more enjoyable and satisfying.

Subjects

Essential contents and structures in the core subjects French, Maths, German and English are taught in a “brain friendly” way and adapted to your needs.

Mathematics

We work on important mathematical areas with you such as geometry, algebra, basic arithmetic, fractions, interest and percentage calculations. We specifically prepare you for aptitude tests, assessment tests required for admission or transfer to another school and, of course, for advancement to the next school level.

French

In the French tuition courses, we work out a clear verbal structure with you and use the verbs as a basis for learning key grammar. You will also find out how to acquire a broad knowledge of vocabulary and have fun learning this language.

English

At the beginning, the universal language English normally does not cause any problems for most students. It does however get more difficult as you go along, which is why we focus on complex grammar and practise written as well as oral use of English.

German as first language

How do I write an essay? What are the most important rules of spelling? When do I need to place a comma? We consider these questions with you and give you a solid foundation on which you can base your knowledge of German. We practise spelling and grammar to enable you to write creative essays, discussions or summaries at a high standard.

German as second language

It is very difficult to be successful at a state school without adequate proficiency in German. Excellent knowledge of German that surpasses a normal level is also required to pass the university entrance qualification at a grammar school. In our courses, we help you to build up the vocabulary that is really essential at school. This includes specific terminology used in natural science subjects, mathematics, the humanities and social sciences. We also focus on structures of colloquial communication to allow you to quickly follow school lessons.

Language courses can be taken as private lessons or in small groups (3–8 participants).
