What we offer

Extracurricular tutoring

Our boarding house works in liaison with various schools and school systems in Düsseldorf and the surrounding area.

  • "Gymnasium" - high school

Our school coordinator at TFI and our school counsellors actively coordinate between the individual student and the educational institute.
Our goal is for each student to earn the diploma he or she worked towards.

Homework

TFI offers tutorial help in homework and before and after class preparation. Every student is assigned to a tutorial group for afternoon study. When needed extra lern material will be provided. Attendance is mandatory for classes from 5-10th grade. For older students, tutorial classes are arranged on request.

Privat tutorial lessons

In addition to our tutorial groups, privat lessons can be arranged upon the need of the student. In this case a tutor will be chosen to accommodate the special needs of the student. TFI places spezial emphasis in the subjects of German, mathematics, and English.

Our boarding house offers 10 rooms for privat and group tutoring. This enables students to learn in a quiet and undisturbed atmosphere. Three of these rooms are equipped with computers and internet. They may be used by the students for research and extra educational help.

Counselling

Every student is assigned to a resident teacher who is there to help them in their daily activities.
