About the lesson

Understanding and mastering a topic requires developing an intuition: in order to know which method must be applied to solve a given problem, we must also understand why these methods works. My goal is to help each student develop their intuition, using simple illustrative examples, while keeping a constant dialog in order to identify reasoning errors.

Each course is prepared in advance, and includes a presentation of the study content and / or solving exercises.

Each session is adapted to the needs of each student. A typical course consists of the following:
(i) Planning the session according to the needs of the student (e.g. homeworks, incoming tests, ...)
(ii) Presentation of the study content
(iii) Illustration of the content with examples / exercises
(iv) Summary of important points and planification of next session

    Depuis quand développez­-vous un intérêt pour votre discipline et pour les cours particuliers ?

    J'ai développé une passion pour les sciences physiques durant mon adolescence. J'adorais lire des livres de vulgarisation scientifique, en particulier d'astrophysique. Au cours de mes études, j'ai développé un grand intérêt pour l'enseignement, et aujourd'hui j'ai énormément de plaisir à transmettre mes connaissances et à suivre la progression de mes étudiants.

  • 02

    Dites nous-en davantage sur la matière enseignée, sur les thèmes que vous appréciez aborder avec les élèves (et éventuellement ceux qui vous plaisent un peu moins) !

    Je prends toujours particulièrement du plaisir à discuter de sujets de physique fondamentale (par exemple physique quantique ou relativité générale). Mais en général, ce qui m'intéresse c'est surtout de réussir à rendre les maths / physique intéressantes pour mes élèves, et à développer leur propre curiosité.

  • 03

    Parlez-nous de vos modèles, que ce soit un professeur qui vous a marqué ou encore une oeuvre qui vous a inspiré !

    Durant mon adolescence j'ai adoré lire les livres de vulgarisation d'auteurs tels que Hubert Reeves et Isaac Asimov. Ils avaient une façon d'expliquer simplement des phénomènes physiques compliqués qui ont piqué ma curiosité et qui m'ont motivé à développer mes connaissances et à entreprendre des études en physique.

  • 04

    Quelles sont, selon vous, les qualités requises pour être un bon expert dans votre domaine ?

    C'est important selon moi d'être curieux, et de ne pas avoir peur de poser des questions pour tester les limites de notre compréhension et de nos hypothèses.

  • 05

    Une anecdote en rapport avec votre métier ou votre scolarité à nous raconter ?

    Je fais partie d'une rare génération d'étudiants qui ont pu exceptionnellement effectuer leur défense de thèse de doctorat depuis leur salon, en raison de la pandémie.

  • 06

    Vous pouvez maintenant nous rassurer et nous avouer que vous aussi, vous avez déjà connu des difficultés à l'école…

    Comme la grande majorité des gens, j'ai connu des difficultés à certains moments de ma scolarité, en particulier dans l'apprentissage de langues. Après m'être rendu compte que j'allais redoubler si je faisais pas de changement dans ma façon d'apprendre, j'ai eu la chance de pouvoir remonter mes notes, ce qui m'a demandé d'être plus sérieux dans mon éducation et de développer une meilleure discipline.

  • 07

    Aidez-nous à vous connaître un peu mieux en évoquant vos passions (que vous partagerez peut-être un jour via Superprof).

    Dans mon temps libre j'adore jouer aux échecs, jouer du piano ou lire de la science-fiction.

  • 08

    Qu'est-ce qui fait de vous un Superprof (en plus d'avoir répondu à cette interview :-P) ?

    J'essaie d'être à l'écoute de mes élèves, et de m'assurer que les bases soient toujours bien intégrées avant d'aborder des sujets / problèmes plus compliqués. J'essaie aussi d'adapter chaque cours au besoin de l'élève, et de développer des méthodes d'apprentissage qui leur soient personnellement appropriées.
