Let us first understand the IB (International Baccalaureate) education system structure. This system offers four different programmes at different levels for students between the ages of 3 and 19 years.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is an inquiry-based student-centered curriculum that consists of 5 crucial elements that students need for lifelong learning and success – Skills, Knowledge, Concepts, Attitudes and Actions. The subject areas are:
The IB Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is a 5-year program and requires a teaching of at least 50 hours/year for each of the following eight subjects covered during the programme.
Students in the DP programme choose one subject from each of the six ‘Subject Groups’ listed below:
Additionally, all DP students must complete a two-year Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course, work on an Extended Essay (EE), and participate in Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). They are not graded for the CAS, but participation and successful completion is a must for achieving the diploma as it is not about the outcomes – but how they get there and how they develop as young learners and as young people reflecting on the whole process.
After clearing the IB MYP, the students become eligible for the IB Diploma programme or IB Career Related programmes.
All these programmes are internationally recognised. Students passing with good merits get placed in prestigious universities.
IB provides just the framework and does not follow a content-based curriculum and thus does not follow a content-based approach for the study.

Despite all the prestigious merits of attending the IB education system, student challenges also need to be considered. Let’s explore them.
As this programme is very demanding, challenging, diverse and strenuous, and sincere, continuous study is required, a student may not always be able to prepare via self-study. There is something more needed than the knowledge and teaching acquired in the classroom. Students cannot fully rely on classroom teaching because that alone may not be sufficient to face the stiff competition.
The student may not know:
Where to start?
What to focus on more?
How are the IB curriculum examinations designed?
What resources are available and how to use them effectively?
So, the need for tuition is inevitable. Help beyond the scope of the classroom becomes a must and a much-needed one. And if the tuition can be one-to-one tutoring, it is the best choice. Online tuition can be opted for to get a high-quality education.
These tuition classes are great for students who need help with any area of their education. The classes can be to clarify any topics, complete the syllabus, or revise the portions. Online tuitions are one notch better as they provide a more flexible schedule and a more convenient location. They can provide support in the form of homework assistance, personalized study plans and curriculum, and assistance in learning how to study and improve grades.
The Online classes are tailored to the student’s individual needs and goals. Tutors are available to help the student to refine his learning abilities by identifying and eliminating weaknesses and focusing on his strengths. Instead of learning in groups, the student gets personalized one-to-one attention.
Very often we find that certain students are not comfortable approaching their class teachers for any help – be it clarifying their doubts or concepts or getting homework help. Moreover, for various reasons they are shy to ask questions in a classroom environment. But the on-to-on online tutoring sessions provide those students with a convenient and flexible opportunity to communicate with the tutors and gain confidence and the same can be carried to the classrooms too. This allows the student to fully comprehend each topic before he moves to the next one.
One of the most effective strategies to enhance your grades is to track the student’s performance. The IB Online tutoring services provide the features of tracking his progress. This way the tutor can
