Many students in Singapore have lived in different countries because of their parents jobs. They are often admitted to schools with the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework, because their studies will not get disrupted due to relocation, since they can find another IB school. However, though there are many IB schools worldwide, the IB curriculum is considered to be very difficult. In addition to answering exams, the student also has to do homework, write essays, make oral presentations, and there is an internal assessment. If the student cannot solve a problem or understand the subject being taught, he may waste a lot of time. Hence many parents would like to find a competent tutor who can provide ib tuition for their child.
In addition to the qualification of the tutor, it is important to check the experience of the ib tutor since the ib course is very difficult. Ideally the tutor should have taught for at least a few years in a IB school, and is familiar with the framework, subjects which are taught and how the performance of the student is assessed. Alternately the tutor should have at least studied in an IB school so that he is aware of the way the different subjects are taught to the student, the level of proficiency which is required, If the tutor is not familiar with the IB system, it will be difficult to teach the student properly.
Like in other educational systems, frameworks, students can choose the subjects which they wish to learn at IB. They can also choose high level or standard level for the subject. While some students have an aptitude for a particular subject, like math or science, often many students find it difficult to understand the different concepts involved. So along with checking the grades of the student, the parent should ask the student about the different IB subjects which he is studying, whether the student is facing any problem, so that tutors can be hired for specific subjects.
Typically the parent can choose between the online tutor and a tutor who will visit the student at home periodically. Most of students studying for IB have to spend a lot of time doing the coursework, since their studies are often equivalent to college level studies. Since the student has less time, it is usually more convenient to have an online tutor, who can be contacted at any time during the day. However, if the student is finding it difficult to understand some concepts, it is better to hire a home tutor who will visit the home of the student.
Since the IB course is very tough, there are comparatively less teachers, and also students who have completed the course in Singapore.
