IB Tuition

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is an integrated program that can be undertaken by both Singapore and International Students. IB is not like the normal Singapore Ministry of Education curriculums. The curriculum is stringently structured, and the focus is not just on academic excellence, but also on cultivating and understanding other cultures in the world.

The first stage for IB is the PYP (Primary Years Program), which is undertaken by students from 3 to 12 years old. Subjects in PYP spin from science, to mathematics, to social studies and languages. This is where the basics are taught and the foundation made. Your child could benefit greatly from IB tuition at this stage as it can help form a strong IB foundation.

At 11 years, and up to 16 years, learners go to the next stage, the MYP (Middle Years Program). In this stage they are taught all the subjects they previously had in PYP in addition to technology and humanities subjects. MYP can be very challenging for some learners due to the increase in the subject areas. The complexity in the course work structure could also make your child academically crush. However, if you get your child into IB home tuition, their IB tutor can give them extra guidance on how to tackle the difficulties. With the help of an IB tutor, your child will be better capable of knowing their strong subjects areas that don’t need so much attention, and the weak subjects they should put more focus on.

The DP (Diploma Program) stage is the last one in the IB curriculum, and is for 16 to 19 year old. At this stage, your child is required to select subjects to specialize on, which they will undertake in addition to the compulsory subjects. By far this is the toughest stage for most students. Not only do children find difficulty coping with detailed and comprehensive classwork, the IB exams are also one of the most difficult exams in the world.

IB tuition is designed in a special way to tackle the needs of IB students. The many subjects offered in the IB curriculum, and that get more advanced and confusing as one climbs up the ladder can be very stressful for your child. Since the IB program aims at producing holistic and self-confident students, as a parent you can help achieve this goal by giving guidance through an IB tutor.
