Testimonials

I always had a bit of difficulty with maths and I used to obtain scores around 7 before. During my last year (S7), I started taking classes with Jenny face to face, and eventually online as well. They helped me improve tremendously over the year, and I even managed to obtain an 8.8 score in my European Baccalaureate math exam. This is a score I never thought I would manage to have. This is thanks to the clear explanations that Jenny has given me over the year as well as the continuous homework I had to do in order to achieve better results in maths.

Thanks again for everything Jenny!

I started my classes with Jenny on the 1st of April, 2019. It was a one hour class and after that class, I immediately knew it was in my best interest to do more classes. At the beginning it was one hour per week but at the end, it was 3 times an hour and a half in a week. Every single class I have had was extremely useful thanks to Jenny’s very professional behavior and her deep understanding and expertise in the European Baccalaureate and the S7 syllabus in Mathematics and Physics.

With Jenny’s classes, I became the best mathematics student of my class. I got a 9/10 in the Sequences test, 9/10 in the Integrals test and I got the best score on the Mathematics Baccalaureate exam with with an 8.1/10, a 0.9 lead from the second best, which I could not have reached without her help. I also managed to score 8.8/10 in my Physics Baccalaureate exam thanks to all the reviews we did in these classes with Jenny. She would always have an answer to every question I had. Despite the fact that she moved away, the quality of the online classes remained the same as the face-to-face classes, because Jenny was always prepared and organized. It was a great class with a great teacher and I have absolutely no regrets.

Maths has always been a struggle for me. At the start of my 7th year I was predicted to hopefully get by with a 6 if everything went well, however, thanks to Jenny’s fantastic tutoring I can proudly say I got a 7 for maths in my Prebac and 7.8 in my final baccalaureate exam. Her extensive knowledge of the European schools and their curriculum allowed her to explain difficult concepts, which I had previously struggled with, in a clear, simple, refreshing manner, making her an ideal tutor for anyone struggling with Math, Chemistry or Physics and I can’t recommend her enough. Thanks for all your help Jenny; I really can’t thank you enough!

I would like to give a big shout out to Ms. Jenny who has helped my son Marco in his revisions for Math Bac Exams. Marco used to get around 6.5 in maths (maths 5) and in his Bac exams he got an 8.

Jenny gives science lessons (Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths) via Skype and I highly recommend to introduce her to the school to help other students as she helped mine. From my experience, it was not easy to find a tutor who is familiar with the european school system and was extremely relieved when I came across her. She knows the curriculum front and back and she also has helped other students in other European Schools and they all came out with great results.

This is to let you know that your work with François was particularly fruitful, as he got a 9.05 / 10 at his physics exam, well done! This is quite an achievement considering his preliminary mark in this subject was only 6.10…

I will be all the more happy to recommend you to other students, with my personal testimony of the excellent support you give them.

Jenny is a great tutor. She explains everything clearly and is patient. She helped me in Chemistry and biology for my Bac and I was able to get great results. I got an 8.7 in Chemistry ad an 8.2 in Biology which I’m very happy about! She knows the European Baccalaureate system very well! It was a real pleasure learning with her.

Jenny is a great tutor, she has helped me enormously with my chemistry BAC. She is friendly and understands the European School curriculum well, therefore there is no miscommunication. She is clear in her explanations and thus helped me achieve high results in my baccalaureate.

These private lessons are very helpful! In just a short amount of time, I was able to learn a lot outside school. It helped me prepare for my exams, and I can honestly say that my grade in physics and maths are a lot better. In class, She understands how the European Baccalaureate works, and we go through the concept of each topic in the syllabus before practicing the former bacs. She also like to make you taste a lot of really tasty Chinese food, I love it!

I started taking classes with Jenny at the beginning of this school year. I started because I had difficulties in physics and I don’t understand very well in class. Jenny has helped me understand all my syllabus and has made me sparkle an interest in physics (something I never had before). She is a very good teacher, very organized in her teaching and takes over the subject to teach it in the best way for you to understand. She works outside of her time to make fiches and go over the exercise I do in class in order to get to my level and make me confident and help me understand. I remember in maths a chapter I was scared about as I did not understand anything. I remember freaking out as I had a test coming up the following week. Jenny calmed me and explained everything to me and even made revision sheets for me. At the end of two lessons I had understood everything about this chapter and ended up getting a 10 out of 10 in my test!

So I strongly recommend Jenny as a tutor. She has helped me big time and my grades have all augmented, thanks to her help. She also has a really cute cat and a large selection of tea.

Ms. Zhao’s classes help immensely to prepare me for the BAC. Her explanations are clear and simple, something that is much appreciated in the sciences! She always prepares her classes throughly. Her very well-structured classes bring order and clarity. Additionally, her schedule is flexible and last minute changes are not a problem. Overall classes I enjoy very much, and a teacher I can rely on!

The European Baccalaureate tutor has helped me understand math in a more logical and simplistic way that is not necessarily shown in school. By using comprehensible examples and using diagrams to demonstrate ideas. Working on homework together and focusing on things I didn’t fully comprehend in class the tutor makes sure you get everything.

This private tutoring course has helped me improve greatly in a short amount of time. She explains the concepts in an easy, understandable way, with illustrations to help me grasp the topic better. She keeps the lesson lively and fun by talking about real life situations and going through fun examples and exercises with me. Overall my understanding of physics has been better than ever, thanks to my tutor.

I only had a few sessions with Jennifer Zhao a couple weeks before my baccalaureate, I wanted to work on specific areas in Chemistry and Mathematics. She rigorously prepared questions from old baccalaureates aimed to practice these specific chapters. She then provided clear and straightforward explanations as we worked through the exercises. The questions and her explanations were extremely helpful. She knew inside out the questions that would be asked for the Chemistry bac as well as the Physics and Math 5 bac. Even if I felt confident for one subject, she introduced more challenging questions from old baccalaureates to further prepare me. Through her determination and clarity, these sessions were a major help to score a higher grade in my EB, and eventually obtaining my offer. Having some tutoring experience myself, I would highly recommend Ms. Zhao.

Ms. Zhao has been tutoring my daughter Emilie in both Maths and Physics for some months now. These extra classes have helped Emilie to gain confidence and to get better marks. She feels she is much more prepared for the European Baccalaureat thanks to these tutored lessons. The flexibility of Ms. Zhao is fantastic, she will always take a pupil in need whatever the day or time.

Ms. Zhao is a tutor I can only recommand as she is indeed not only a professional tutor but as well a very nice person.

Ms. Zhao provided high-quality tutoring in math for my son in S6 at the European School. She was able to explain concepts to my son in English so he could manage the advanced math class. She also helped him with biology for his final exam, and he passed both. She is supportive and also gives regular feedback to parents.
