By using experienced IB teachers and recent IB students, our participants enjoy the “Best of Both Worlds”. IB teachers are familiar with the current changes in the IB syllabus and the current expectations of IB examiners. Only IB teachers know where students tend to get stuck on subject areas and they know what techniques help unlock understanding. Former IB students are best suited talking through the emotional stress and personal challenges of taking the IB. They will share experience and naturally students will more easily empathise and build trust with similar students of their own generation. By spending time with successful IB students, participants will borrow the confidence of their success.
