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.
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.
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.
"Biology can be a fascinating subject for some. However, some topics may be harder to understand than others. One important aspect of the study of biology is being able to always ask for clarifications when needed. Furthermore, one tool that can prove very useful in the understanding and revision of this subject, is the existence visual representations for almost all the processes and physiological structures studied. If they are not in the manual, the internet is full of them, and while always ensuring the accuracy of these resources, students should make use of them."
From the molecular structures of cells and their complex metabolic functions to the processes of the ecosystem, biology covers a broad overview of our living surroundings, offering students a better understanding of the world which surrounds them and cultivating a deeper understanding and appreciation of our planet and its many resources.
IB students who choose to study biology will not only leave the course better prepared for scientific careers but, with a better understanding of the living world, they will also become better and more responsible inhabitants of our planet.
IB Biology students will be exposed to a comprehensive framework for studying and accumulating an understanding of the living world and its many processes. From the subject’s core, which contains topics such as cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, ecology, evolution and biodiversity as well as human physiology, to its additional topics, exploring a variety of areas, biology students will be given the necessary tools for producing their own scientific research and communicating with the use of scientific terms, thus preparing them for a wide array of career destinations.
By offering the necessary knowledge to have a solid basis which students can further expand through their subsequent studies, IB Biology opens a great amount of doors when it comes to its graduates’ careers. These can include but are not limited to: biology, psychology, neuroscience, ecology, zoology, nursing, medicine, dentistry and veterinary sciences. Furthermore, for those who do not choose to pursue sciences through their university studies and careers, the knowledge accumulated from IB biology remains an important asset for everyday life by providing a clearer view and understanding of our surrounding living world.
