Online tuition has allowed me to build a global student base with IB kids from all corners of the world. Many students prefer online tuition as it enables them access to online materials in their own time, as well as store saved lessons electronically.
Since 2008, all of my students have improved their subject grades, with the average increasing being 2.3
This method of tuition is popular for students who want regular lessons in a subject, or as revision in the run-up to examinations. The lessons are conducted over Skype, but with an integrated whiteboard application so that the student can see exactly what is being sketched and discussed.
The tablet-based approach is just as effective, if not better, than face-to-face tuition. I save and store the lesson materials so that the student can access them electronically in their own time.
The price for this type of tuition is £100 per session.

Coursework, Essays and Assignments
This method is preferred by students who are working on Internal Assessments, the Extended Essay, or any other IB-related assignment which they must submit. Students email me their draft work and in return I send them back my edits, improvements, and corrections. A comprehensive comments sheet is also included. For Internal Assessment, students can also request that I assess their work as an examiner, and attach a corresponding assessment with the grading criterion. This method is very popular with students as they can request a one-off session and there are no restrictions on time because they do not need to book a tutorial slot.
The price for this type of tuition is £80 per session.
No Matter What
My online IB Tuition service gives students personalized IB tuition/revision in their own time. Students are asked what they would like to cover and accomplish, and I prepare an appropriate plan to achieve those goals.
Additionally I can provide general guidance to students in order to build confidence, target problem areas, help with International Baccalaureate exam technique, and develop study skills.

Experience & Credentials
As a former student myself, I know the ins and outs of what it takes to excel at the IB Diploma program. The road to academic success in the IB is not only a matter of what you know, but how you apply this knowledge to get the best results. Unlike subject-specific tutors who have not sat the IB examinations themselves, I have a close connection to the program and know exactly what it feels like to be a student of the rigorous diploma.
