What is the International Baccalaureate?

The International Baccalaureate Diploma is a qualification taken by some sixth formers instead of A Levels. While A Levels ask students to specialise in three or four subjects which they study in depth, the IB has a broader scope. Students take six subjects over the course of two years, alongside an extended essay. Our IB tutors are here to guide them through the process.

Like with GCSEs, teenagers must study a range of subjects from across the curriculum including maths, science, the arts and languages. Grading is also different. While A Levels are graded with letters – A* being the highest – IB candidates receive points. 45 is the best possible score you can achieve. 

The IB is very well respected by universities and employers alike, and particularly suits students who enjoy a diverse range of subjects. However, not all schools offer the IB and it is a notoriously challenging qualification. 

Our IB Tutors 

Our tutors have a thorough knowledge of the IB curriculum and share a passion for their subjects. 

To do well in the IB, students must master a wide of skills, from maths to essay writing. Our tutors quickly evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their pupils and home in on areas of improvement. No issue or uncertainty is swept under the carpet and teenagers are encouraged to speak up and ask questions during lessons. 

Our tutors also strive to develop teenagers’ particular talents. Sixth form is a time for students to explore their interests and our lessons are designed to keep them engaged and motivated. 

Exam technique is also crucial. With so many subjects to cover, students must learn how to revise effectively, how to approach questions, how to manage their time and how to structure their answers. Our team of IB tutors knows the syllabus inside-out and has an excellent track record when it comes to assessments. 

All of our tutors have spotless academic credentials and a wealth of teaching experience. Many have worked at leading independent schools. Others hold first class degrees from Oxford or Cambridge. In terms of recruitment, all tutors are interviewed and recruited following similar procedures that schools follow for hiring teachers. Identity checks, CV checks, DBS checks and references are undertaken before assigning a new tutor.

Online tuition

Our tutors can teach in person or online, using a range of digital tools. 

Subjects we Cover

The IB diploma programme curriculum is made up of six subject groups: language and literature; language acquisition; individuals and societies; sciences; mathematics; and arts or electives.

There are also some ‘core’ topics: theory of knowledge, activity, service, and the extended essay. More information on the IB curriculum can be found here

Our tutors can help students with any element of the course. 

Is tuition right for your child?

The IB is a demanding qualification and has a direct bearing on the next stage of your child’s academic career. Private tuition could give your child the knowledge, motivation and confidence they need to thrive in their final years of school.

Whether they would benefit from intensive revision sessions or longer term support, one-to-one tuition is a fantastic way to unlock teenagers’ potential in sixth form and beyond.

What We Do

When you require a tutor or other service for your child we provide a free telephone consultation to understand the tuition requirement in detail. Once you have instructed us, we reach out to our dedicated team of tutors and to assign the best tutor or consultant to match your child’s learning goals.
