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.
Psychology is a subject which requires the memorisation of a lot of knowledge. This can seem overwhelming and as such it is important to pace yourself and ensure a certain level of consistency and organisation in the study of this subject. Furthermore, it is important to realise that every student has their own method of understanding and learning, so you need to find what works best for you and to plan frequent study sessions in advance .
Psychology doesn’t only offer a great insight into the behaviour of those who surround us, but also provides students with a better understanding of the functioning of their own minds and of our ways of functioning together as a society.
IB psychology graduates will accumulate the necessary skills and knowledge for a variety of careers and academic fields, on top of which they will also be better prepared for understanding and navigating the world and the social interactions that they will come across throughout life.
Students taking IB Psychology will be exposed to a holistic way of understanding the human mind and human behaviour. With a focus on the different approaches, (biological, cognitive and sociocultural) used in the study and understanding of human behaviour as well as one or two optional topics, depending on the level at which this subject is taken, students will also be exposed to the different ethical and methodological concerns that surround psychological research. Students will also have an opportunity to apply this knowledge through their internal assessment.
As a subject which offers a great framework for a better understanding of the human mind, psychology can prove very useful in many academic disciplines as well as in a variety of careers. For students who are passionate by this subject and would like to further pursue it through their university studies, IB Psychology offers a great basis for the study of degrees such as Psychology or Neuroscience. For those who choose different paths, the study of psychology will always be a great asset in many careers such as but not limited to: social work, business, marketing, advertising, forensics, human resources and even finance
