With over 3000 teachers, Axiom Academic supports students in French high schools and IB World Schools throughout their schooling. Axiom Academic, now available in over 50 cities, is your partner of choice to provide the tutoring your children need from primary to high school, both at home and online.
Meriem Draman is a French-speaking independent school guidance counsellor since January 2019, specialising in the French education system (middle school, high school, post-bac training).
She lives in Istanbul and thanks to the magic of the internet works with students from all over the world.
In her previous life, she was a physics and chemistry teacher for ten years, and is now on leave from the French Ministry of Education.
In the framework of her activity, she offers two main services:
- The orientation assessment: for young people from the third grade to the first years of higher education.
The orientation assessment is a short 3-session support that allows students to get to know themselves better, i.e. to identify their skills, their strengths, their priorities and their professional interests in order to choose the post-baccalaureate training pathway best suited to their profile, and also the various fields of activity in which they have every chance of blossoming and therefore succeeding.
- PostBac Admission (Parcoursup) support: for students in their final year of secondary school, students who are reorienting their studies and French students not enrolled in the French system.
Parcoursup support from A to Z takes place in 4 to 6 sessions and allows the student to feel guided, advised, supported and reassured throughout the registration process on Parcoursup: from the strategic choice of the 10 wishes to the drafting of motivated training projects, including the initial creation of the registration file.
