The Catalyse Learning Centre (CLC) was founded by Melissa Jakobsen early in 2012. Originally from Canada, she moved to Switzerland in 2007 and began teaching at an international school in the mathematics and science departments. After having her first child, she was unable to continue working on a full time basis so opened the CLC in order to offer academic support to English-speaking students. She believes strongly in the value and importance of academic excellence and has developed a range of materials to help students of all levels.
Over the years, she has tutored students in mathematics, biology and physics . She has found excellent instructors to help tutor other subjects including Chemistry, Economics, EFL, English Literature and all levels of French.
