About the lesson
Hello, I'm Baptiste. Originally from the UK, France and Japan, I've had a diverse upbringing. In 2017, I accepted my place to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Boston, USA), but deferred it for 2018 because I passionately believe in the merits of a gap year.
I started off tutoring my siblings, first with the 11+ that I went through myself. I passed the entrance tests for Westminster School, Haberdasher's, Highgate, City of London, Queen Elizabeth Boys and UCS. I chose to go to Westminster School. There, I achieved 10 A*'s. As I approached my A-Levels, I started helping my siblings with GCSE work. I achieved 4 A*'s for A-Level, in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chinese.
I firmly believe in the learn by doing methodology, which I always try to use throughout my teaching, regardless of whether that's Computer Science or Physics.
Over the last 3 years, I have done some private tutoring, both over Skype and from my home. I have cumulatively given over 200 hours of Maths lessons (primary school, 11+, GCSE, and A-Level), as well as 90 hours of English lessons (primary school), 110 hours of Physics (primary, GCSE, A-Level/Pre-U), and 60 hours of programming lessons. I have recently started tutoring Computer Science and coding.
Baptiste is a hidden gem of a tutor. I began working with him to improve my maths SAT score but he managed to drastically increase my confidence with maths too. He was very patient with me and gave invaluable advice for tackling such a time pressured exam. I had tried quite a few SAT Maths tutors before him and they charged triple the price for a much lower quality of teaching.
I was so pleased with his services I also began learning coding with him and have found him to be incredibly knowledgeable and great at breaking everything down into understandable chunks - no wonder he won a place at MIT!
He is a real role model for students with big dreams - I have already recommended him to all my friends hoping to apply to the US.
Writing this reference for Baptiste Bouvier is both incredibly easy and difficult at the same time. To elaborate further, I say easy as I know of no other individual so well suited to the role of a tutor as Baptiste. Yet it is also difficult to do his character, attitude and personality justice within the space of only so many lines.
The fact that Baptiste is frequently chosen for positions of leadership (boat club captain, head of house and monitor to name but a few) showcases many of his finest talents: leadership, organization and thoughtfulness. These qualities carry over to all aspects of his being – his tutoring is no exception and neither are his studies. Baptiste excelled in his A-Levels achieving A*s or equivalents across the board.
Baptiste finds assisting both his peers and younger minds incredibly rewarding – this is demonstrated by his ongoing voluntary commitments to his community. He has taken part in these for as long as I can remember.
Therefore I can unreservedly recommend Baptiste as an unquestionably excellent tutor.
