Their youth and enthusiasm, as recent IB alumni, help them bring together rigorous academic support with an energy and approachability which helps students demonstrate their ability and ambition.
We find students who are struggling to enjoy or engage with an IB subject benefit particularly from Standard Tier tutors, whose youth and enthusiasm for their subjects can help enthuse students and motivate them to devote more time and effort to the subject.
They combine impressive experience delivering one-to-one support to students with impressive knowledge of the syllabi in the subjects EIB has cleared them to teach to our students.
Many of our Higher Tier tutors are IB teachers and IBO Examiners, which make them ideal for students who are looking to extend the classroom environment to their home, and learn with the structure and authority teachers provide.
Tutors in this tier include former Heads of IB schools and departments, professors and lecturers at prestigious universities, longstanding IBO Examiners as well tutors with whom we’ve worked with closely for many, many years.
Other IB tuition agencies offer students packages of hours. Often, these come with titles like “Exam Starter Pack” or “Complete Subject Support”. While we understand the economies of savings these offer students and families, we have a strong belief at EIB that every student is different, needs to find the tutor that works for them, and needs the support and guidance to explore the IB at a pace and in a way which matches their learning style.
We do not believe all students can be tutored for an exam in the same 10 hour block and think it irresponsible to suggest standardised learning like this will work for every student. Instead, we ask families to work with EIB and their tutors to make sure the support they’re receiving offers the best progress and approach for their circumstance. You can read more about how we monitor student’s progress - and how we take into account each student’s profile when making proposals of tutors to them - on the ‘How it Works’ page, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where families are looking for economies - or where students may want to work together with a tutor - we offer group lessons. Group lessons are charged at the tutor typical rate, plus £20 per additional student, with the total shared between students. Group lessons can include up to 4 students, and be both online and face-to-face. If you’d like to know more, please email us at email@example.com.
We work very hard to put students in touch with the perfect tutor for them, rather than just placing them with the first available tutor like other IB agencies do. We regularly speak at length with families before they register with us, discussing their needs, ideal tutor, availability and more to understand their circumstances.
When students register with us we then spend two days speaking with tutors, sharing anonymised information about the student with them, completing DBS checks and more. Registration Fees (aka Linking Fees) cover the administrative cost of this process. Families only pay it once only after agreeing to a tutor proposal, and it entitles them to request tutors in new subjects at no cost at any time.
