We provide individual, tailor-made Physics tutoring.
We will be happy to help you with tutoring also in Derby.
We test the student’s knowledge, and using the results of
placement tests and any other requirements, we prepare a study plan, and online tutoring can begin next week.
Tutoring can have a different focus and also length. One lesson lasts 45 minutes, but some people prefer a two-hour
lesson (90 minutes) or even longer blocks. Courses are always individual, so you don’t have to wait for the
course to open. You can start at any time. The course length and lesson intensity depend on you. Some people
choose the so-called „quick help“ in the form of 5 lessons, and others prefer regular semestral or annual
At School Populo, we can ensure regular tutoring, preparation for important exams, but we can also help with pre-school preparation or preparation for resits. Whether you need help improving your knowledge of the subject for school or work, or just for your own interest, we are here for you.
We help students with complex topics at school or with homework. We will prepare them for ongoing tests or help catch up with missed topics. We can prepare you for GCSE, A-LEVELS, and other exams.
Together with the methodological centre, our tutors will draw up a study plan for each student and regularly supplement materials for home practice.
Our sophisticated online teaching system offers time flexibility so that you can study from the comfort of your home. Apart from your own computer and connection, you don’t need any special equipment.
Each of our future students has the opportunity to take a free placement test. Based on its result, we will recommend a suitable lesson frequency and length. After each lesson, you will receive
the minutes of the lesson, the topics covered, and the evaluation of progress via e-mail. Parents and students are also informed about each upcoming lesson via an SMS message, which contains
the lesson date and time and the tutor’s name.
Six-year-old Lucas and I were going on a longer stay abroad, and we wanted our son to learn at least some basics of Spanish. Our boy was in pre-school age, so he couldn't read or write much. Therefore, the classes were approached in such a way that he learned as much as possible. So they prepared a range of fun games, songs, and poems for him, and the tutor spoke only in Spanish. The “total physical response” (TPR) method, which involves the whole body in the lessons and children fix the words by showing them in motion, has also proved very useful. Lucas learned quickly, and we noticed his progress very soon. And because Lucas, of course, had to go to school abroad, we used this method to learn the basics of reading and writing. We were very satisfied, and we can confirm that we really like the individual and intensive approach.
I would like to thank School Populo for a very good math tutor
Amy T., mom
I would like to thank School Populo for a very good math tutor. Although he is still a student, his knowledge and ability to teach mathematics are excellent. We are happy to use the services of the School again.
Many thanks to School POPULO for providing Spanish lessons
Many thanks to School POPULO for providing Spanish lessons. As a complete beginner, I appreciated that they chose a very capable, but at the same time, patient tutor who tries to adapt each lesson to my needs. Her preparation for individual lessons is always very dutiful, and thanks to her, I am getting more confident in Spanish after every lesson. I would also like to pay attribute to the coordinators of School POPULO, whose approach is very helpful and professional. The school's overall functioning has always made a friendly impression on me. I can only recommend School POPULO and its tutors to everyone.
Populo School is part of our family
Hannah S., mom
Populo School is part of our family. If your child is not a pure study type, then you certainly know the moments when you argue at home while learning and preparing for school. Thanks to School Populo, our home became a peaceful and quiet place. Our 12-year-old son attends one-on-one math tutoring. The tutor explains new topics that he may not understand. They practice what he struggles with, do homework, and, of course, do preparation for school exams. We are all completely satisfied. That’s why our 9-year-old daughter decided that she also wants to attend math tutoring at School Populo from September. Our son attends two lessons a week regularly. If we need to, we ask for a lesson during the weekend. The tutor, Miss Annie, is amazing. Our son loves her very much and constantly talks about her at home. I have nothing but good experience with communication with others from the School. They always meet our needs, respond immediately and positively to any of my requests. Thanks for the straight A’s on the report card also belong to School Populo. Thank you.
I want to thank you very much.
Vicky T., student
I would like to thank you very much for the English course I attended at School Populo led by the tutor Jane T., who was very nice and kind. I appreciate your empathetic approach and your perfect feedback. I was very impressed by your announcement system, informing about lesson date with the tutor’s name. I would like to thank Mrs. Marcella S. and Michelle S. for their kind approach and excellent tutoring skills I very much appreciate.
Populo School offers high-quality tutoring
Rachel K., mom of 17-year-old Barbara
Populo School offers high-quality tutoring. My daughter didn’t understand Economics and had an aversion to it. Thanks to the tutor chosen by School Populo, she not only understood the subject, but she also began to enjoy it and be interested in it! This is even more than what School Populo offers. Thank you very much.
Every teacher has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that.
I’ve been a teacher at Populo School for some time now. Like any job, tutoring has its pros and cons. To start less positively, especially when preparing for admission exams, it is a demanding job, both in terms of time and head. Both for me as the tutor who has to teach students, be it at seven in the evening or three in the afternoon, I still have to be just as fresh and well prepared, and for coordinators who are literally struggling with the time possibilities of students and tutors that need to match. However, these negatives are well outweighed by the friendly atmosphere, pleasant tutoring premises, and the fact that students do not have to be afraid to go to School Populo, the evaluation is not set as numbered grades, but the tutors use letters to express students’ progress and activity. The amount of textbooks and teaching materials only complements all the positives that the Populo School is proud of. If someone told me that I would have tutoring as fun and I would look forward to every lesson, I would not believe it. However, with School Populo, this idea came true, not only because the tutors are "tailor-made" for each student. Every tutor has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that. The coordinators will help, advise and do everything to make every tutoring a success.
Thank you very much.
I would like to thank you. School Populo has always been flexible and willing to provide my son with the necessary tutoring at a very good level. We would like to thank both the tutors and the staff for arranging tutoring and excellent, willing communication. Thank you very much, have a nice weekend.
My son Dominic was getting prepared for resit
My son Dominic was taking your classes to get prepared for a resit from physics and chemistry. He passed both resits successfully and is advancing to the next grade. I would like to thank you; without your tutoring, he would not be able to do so. My husband and I were looking for quality tutoring, but we weren’t satisfied until we found your School. Thanks again. I will definitely recommend your services to others.
Mom’s Story – German for the little ones
It always seemed to me that my daughter Mary had a talent for languages. She learned to read in English herself, so I thought about trying to give her a chance to learn the basics of German at an early age so that she would have an advantage in first grade. Pre-school preparation gave her a chance to develop this talent. She did well in German thanks to many fun exercises Mary did with Miss tutor, and also thanks to the fact that no one pushed her. I also wanted to give credit to the “total physical response” method, which has also proved very useful. I started to see the results very quickly when my daughter at home started reading short German fairy tales, picture books, and catching words from fairy tales, which I played on the computer. We are now considering other languages as well because talent should be nurtured from a young age and the Pre-school preparation method works very well!
My name is Irene, and I am currently studying Physics at the Technical University for the third year in a row. Although I have always been interested in mathematics and physics, I sometimes also struggled in them. That’s why I decided to work at School Populo because I know from my own experience how important tutoring can be and how much it can help. It is a pleasure to work with students, because I am always very happy for the students when mathematics and physics finally start making sense to them and they stop being afraid of these subjects. In addition to working at School Populo and studying, I enjoy spending time watching series, playing computer games, and caring for my overly large family of cats.
English language, physics, chemistry and mathematics tutor
I am one of those happy people who do their job with love. I have taught and tutored at the same time for a long time, but tutoring brings me more satisfaction. I like to approach students individually, which I can through tutoring. My hobbies include reading, film, good music and sports. I like to meet new people, countries, and places, so I travel often. I’m looking forward to our lessons together.
Mathematics and physics tutor
My name is Stephen and I am studying Nuclear Physics at the University for two years. I enjoyed mathematics and especially physics from the very beginning, but physics won. At high school, I tutored my younger sister and other friends. I realized that I enjoy passing on knowledge. That’s why School Populo is the right place for me. I have my German wolfhound Max, with whom I participate in a number of competitions before entering the University. I also love to read, especially fantasy and sci-fi books.
Mathematics and physics tutor
My name is Robert, and I am in my third year at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering. I wasn’t much interested in math in elementary or high school. When I started my first year, I had problems and had to learn all the math basics. That’s why I know how important math is in elementary and high school. Now, I am in the third year, and I am a tutor (not only) for the first-year students at the faculty. My hobbies include literature and music.
Mathematics and physics tutor
George has been working at the School Populo for half a year. In 1981, he successfully completed his studies at the Faculty of Science, with a major in Mathematics and Physics. All his life, he has been working at various types of secondary and primary schools. He is empathetic and prefers a friendly approach to clients. In his free time, he enjoys hiking and traveling. He is also interested in sports, especially football.
During her time at high school, Elizabeth enjoyed helping her classmates to understand the subject content, and so she decided to apply to School Populo as a tutor, where she has been working since the beginning of 2018. She is currently studying Molecular and Cell Biology at the Faculty of Science at the University. Her favourite subjects are chemistry and biology. But she is also interested in physics and mathematics, which she teaches most often. In addition to regular tutoring and Skype lessons, she prepares our students for admission exams for high schools and grammar schools. In her free time, Elizabeth enjoys dancing, various sports, and playing the piano.
Mathematics and physics tutor
Alena has been working in School Populo since September 2017. She has been professionally engaged in individual tutoring for more than 11 years, i.e. since completing her studies in Demography at the Faculty of Science, Charles University. She later took a Montessori pedagogy course and is currently completing a pedagogical minimum for secondary schools. She says that the best teacher is the one who studies something himself because he can take on the role of a student. Therefore she constantly attends some educational courses (English, French, or art workshops for adults). Alena perceives learning primarily as mutual enrichment – the teacher passes on his knowledge, the child then its view of the world. She likes to relax, having walks in the woods with her dogs, painting, or reading a good book.
Wenceslas, Ph.D., Ing.
Physics, chemistry, technical drawing, electrical engineering and computer science tutor
I have never wanted to be a teacher. But I couldn’t keep that at all. As an external teacher of technical and science subjects, I actually constantly dabble in the craft of real teachers. Otherwise, I mainly focus on applied research in the fields of physical chemistry and electronics. Why did I choose School Populo? Because I want to be a peer counsellor to students, not a beadle, desperately trying to maintain discipline in a classroom full of people. People who don’t care what I tell them, don’t care what I show them in the lab…. who have minimal interest in any educational activities and creative activities. I know that I can make a lesson attractive and unconventional. Then I feel even more disappointed when I see students waiting desperately for the bell to ring and for their escape deep into the big city. School Populo is unique in this – almost everyone who comes is interested in leaving with something inside their minds.
