Welcome to the Catalyse Learning Centre

This cozy centre in Clarens (Montreux) opened in 2012 with the goal of offering tailored academic support for students attending English-language international schools in the area.


Over the last 4 years, we have taught thousands of lessons to students from schools such as St. George’s School in Switzerland, International School of Lausanne, Haut Lac, and Champitet.   Though we work primarily with pupils from these schools, everyone who wants to excel is welcome, including students who are homeschooled.

We tutor all levels including iGCSE* and IB* and can prepare students for the SATs.

Our lessons are adapted to the specific needs of each student and as a result they show tremendous improvements.  Typically, motivated students who are predicted 3s or 4s in IB courses for example, are able to achieve 6s and even 7s with our assistance.   Many of our students have won school prizes in the subjects we have helped them with as well, or have gone on to study these subjects in University.

We also have experience with students who have learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia.

If you would like to learn more about what we do, please send a text or email to book an appointment.

Currently, we offer support in the following subjects:

  • Mathematics
  • Economics
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • General Science
  • French
  • English as a foreign Language
  • English Literature
  • Homework/organisational support

We also offer help for editing essays.

The private lessons are held at various times throughout the day and into the evening.

Language lessons for the general public in English and French are on offer as well, including Business English and English maintenance courses for native English-speaking children/youth.
