In Paris a tutoring company is innovating its teaching method
Moving away from the classic model of one-to-one tutoring at home, Alveus is offering an educational support service in small groups, inspired by co-working spaces.
The objective of Alveus is to revolutionise educational support, and at the heart of its activity is the motivation of adolescents and collaborative learning.
In order to do this, the business has created ‘La Ruche’: a calm, light, friendly, working space inspired by a new style of co-working spaces. Accessible seven days a week, this space has large tables allowing students to work in groups. There are also computers and a library available, as well as a cafeteria.
As in co-working spaces, exchanges of ‘good practice’ are promoted: students are supported by young tutors from major Paris schools. Split into groups of four, they are encouraged to become more autonomous in their work and to help each other where necessary.
Throughout the year students have the chance to meet young professionals, to listen to presentations on the jobs of tomorrow, to participate in methodology workshops… to help them get ready for the reality of the world of work.
The website of Alveus is a reflection of its innovative spirit: it’s modern, and uses just one page to present its methods and the company’s location.
The site also shows the enthusiastic exchanges of text messages between teachers and students when the latter see their efforts rewarded.
Alveus has already helped more than 150 students, of which 80% got a baccalaureate with a merit.
