In our tutoring classes for 5th to 9th grade, we're working with our own dossiers: "Durchblick in Deutsch", "Fit in Französisch" and "Meister in Mathe". These documents are based on the current curriculum of the Canton of Zurich in order to ensure that the students receive the best possible support in achieving their learning goals. This way, topics can be addressed directly and studied in depth and it is ensured that your child will soon be able to keep up in regular school lessons.

School Accompanying Course


This has the advantage that the child is thoroughly prepared for the test step by step. For several weeks, the students learn and repeat the basics down to the roots, they are trained purposefully.


Our experienced teachers teach the material, help with problems and encourage independent learning. All courses include regular learning assessments and homework.


With our 200 lessons, we offer far more than other Gymnasium preparation courses.


In addition, we have developed our own teaching material with a theoretical and practical part in our tutoring centre, which has proven to work well.

Nachhilfe-Akademie - Your Training Center for the Zurich & Winterthur Area - Tutoring, Gymnasium Preparation & Homework Supervision

School time is a very special phase in life for parents and children. In addition to new experiences and new friends, performance suddenly appears on the agenda. Now it's no longer just about having fun together, but about achieving tangible results. Thus, parents do everything in their power to accompany their child in the best possible way. Ultimately, the big goal is to lay a good foundation for the child's future career.

Parents and children sometimes come to a standstill on their way together and a little extra tutoring is needed. Perhaps maths is your child's biggest enemy, maybe you need help with Gymnasium preparation or homework support. It's good to have a partner at your side who supports your child individually and empathetically.

Parents In Zurich and Winterthur are on the safe side. The tutoring academy, based in Zurich and Winterthur, has been offering professional tutoring since 2008 and supports you and your child with homework supervision or Gymnasium preparation.

Tutoring from grades 3 to 13

Children usually learn well and quickly. And yet it can happen that they need tutoring - because they sometimes have problems with the curriculum and would otherwise lose touch. There are many reasons for this. There may be a change of school due to a move. Sometimes a new teacher, who has different expectations of the pupils, is a short-term reason for tutoring. The fact that learning problems occur at times is perfectly normal and no cause for concern. Here, a good tutoring can solve comprehension problems.

Our education centre offers private tutoring for pupils from the third grade up to the Matura in Zurich and Winterthur - in the subjects German, Maths and French. With tutoring at the education centre, parents in Zurich and Winterthur benefit from more than 15 years of professional experience. In addition, they can always rely on the education center to offer fair prices. Whether in private tuition or in a small group - experienced teachers in Zurich and Winterthur will help your child to progress in the education center, so that he or she will quickly catch up again. And if the secondary exam is due later, the education centre will also support you in preparing for the exam.

Gymnasium preparation

If your child is aiming for the Matura, he or she must attend a Gymnasium and undergo special Gymnasium preparation. The entrance examination for this type of school is particularly demanding. And experience has shown that particularly good Gymnasium preparation is required to pass the examination. If parents in Zurich or Winterthur have doubts as to whether their children will be able to prepare for Gymnasium on their own, they can get professional support during this phase as well.

Our education center in Zurich and Winterthur offers intensive Gymnasium preparation programmes in which experienced teachers repeat and consolidate all the material with the students. In regular practice, your child can apply the learnt material and gain confidence. The highlight: an exam simulation during Gymnasium preparation perfectly prepares the students for the upcoming challenge. This way, fears can be minimized in advance. And the infamous examination anxiety has no chance.

If an additional date during the week or on the weekend is too much for you, you also have the opportunity to take intensive crash courses during the holidays. Our education centers in both Zurich and Winterthur regularly offer intensive courses for Gymnasium preparation during the sports holidays.

Homework supervision

Especially in the first years of school, it often is necessary for parents to support their children with homework supervision. However, if both parents are working, good homework supervision from in-house is not easy. After work, both the parents and the child usually are too tired to brood over notebooks and books. It's a good thing if somebody steps in to take care of homework supervision. Someone you can rely on one hundred percent.

Our education centres in Zurich and Winterthur offer professional homework supervision for students of all grades. Whether in individual supervision or in small groups - experienced teachers are available to assist with homework in all subjects. And not just for the little ones. Homework supervision can also be useful in secondary schools. And when the family meets for dinner in the evening, everything is done. How reassuring.
