Learning Culture: With Passion and Focus

LearningCulture stands for education of the highest quality. Because for us, learning doesn’t just mean studying material for the next exam and then forgetting it again. Learning is a life philosophy for us. A learning culture is the joy of discovering something new and of improving one’s own abilities. A person living in accordance with a learning culture takes responsibility for his or her own success, sets personal goals and works towards achieving them.

A learning culture means taking the initiative and not waiting for others to change the world.

We want to share this learning culture with our students and also their parents. Together we work on achieving success and good grades.  

The Basics of Our Learning Culture

Learning as a life philosophy

Learning is a burdensome obligation? We see this differently: Learning is an opportunity, a privilege, it is enjoyable and an important tool for success.

We impart this way of thinking to our students, but also exemplify it ourselves: Our team and our coaches continuously and enthusiastically develop themselves further. On pedagogical topics, but also in related areas like coaching and psychology.

Recognition and Self-Confidence

Every student is an individual human being with certain skills and a special personality. We show them how they can utilise their specific capabilities and dispositions to reach their personal goals. In this way, we increase their trust in their own talents.

Self-responsibility and initiative

When students start taking responsibility for their success, they learn more easily and effectively and gain a new appreciation for the school knowledge and for reaching goals.

We help children and youth in setting their own goals, to work towards them and to gain self-confidence from reaching those goals.

Successful together

Teamwork makes tutoring even better. Because the students‘ educational performances are influenced by many persons: Teachers, parents, friends, tutors and of course the students themselves. We achieve the highest levels of success when everyone pulls together and communicates in an open and direct way.

Learning With a Pedagogic Concept

It doesn’t matter which of our coaches your child works with: They are all excellent coaches and persons with their own personal teaching histories. In addition, every one of them is proficient in and exemplifies the learning concept of LearningCulture.

Because learning requires concept.

The cornerstones of our lessons

The teaching concept of LearningCulture is based on target orientation, openness, respect and motivation. Besides the students’ knowledge, their self-confidence is the main contributing factor for their success in school.

Pedagogical Direction

Two persons are especially responsible for the pedagogic orientation of LearningCulture: Balz Müller and Nicole Rüede. Both have extensive teaching experience and pedagogic competency. Together they form the pedagogic leadership and are therefore responsible for the development and realization of our pedagogic concept.

In addition, they create our lesson plans, choose and accompany coaches, support the development of course materials and develop our coaches in internal training courses.      

Simply put: They create learning culture.
