Importance of IB HL Tuition

At IB HL (Higher Level) level, IB students are expected to commit more hours into studying the IB HL topics, and further going in depth into certain topics under the IB SL Syllabus. This would mean that IB HL Syllabus is definitely more rigorous and would require more attention and time as compared to the IB SL Syllabus.

One way to ace this particular subject would be to understand the IB HL Syllabus and the assessment overview to find out what is expected of IB students. From the subject aims to the topics covered in IB HL, students can learn everything about IB HL Curriculum and the relevant subjects that they are taking!

Alternatively, students can choose to engage MindFlex to find the best IB HL tutor fit that is most suited to their academic needs and preferences. Home to the largest tutor database in Singapore, MindFlex will be sure to find the most suitable IB HL tutor for all their students!

Challenges Faced By IB HL Students

Difficulty Speaking Up in Class

Many IB HL Students tend to face difficulties speaking up or clarifying their doubts in class. This is especially true for students who happen to have a more quiet or timid temperament, and is exacerbated by the large class sizes in schools which can be rather intimidating. Students may be afraid of being laughed at by their peers, and as a result do not speak up in class.

Here at MindFlex, we believe that it is very important that students voice out their concerns and doubts as soon as possible in order to create a smoother learning process. Furthermore, doing so will train these IB HLstudents in their Communication Skills, which is a highly crucial and sought-after skill in the workplace.

Overwhelmed with Stress

Doing well for IB HL is extremely important for students, so this naturally results in significantly higher stress levels among students, which could potentially affect their ability to perform well during IB HL examinations.

Here at MindFlex, we believe that one way to tackle heightened stress levels is engaging with an IB HL Tutor! An IB HLtutor will effectively help to target the student’s weaknesses, listen to the problems they face in the subject, as well as to help the students improve.This will ensure that IB HL students will be able to confidently sit for the examinations at the end of the year.

Decreased Motivation Levels

The difference in content intensity between IB SL and IB HL is relatively significant, and the learning curve for your child is likely to be extremely steep. Moreover, the rigour of the curriculum and the standard of the school work will be much more difficult and demanding. If your child is lagging behind their peers, they could be unmotivated to catch up as they see it as too difficult to do.

Therefore, MindFlex recommends engaging a Top IB HL Tutor for your child. An IB HL Tutor will be able to provide students with sufficient support and guidance, as well as on-the-spot feedback. This will motivate students to remain on top of the IB HL Curriculum.

Poor Examination Performance

It is often a common sight to see IB HL students study hard for their various tests and examinations, but end up scoring poorly in their IB HL examinations. This can be attributed to poor examination performance, meaning that the work and revision that IB HL students put in into revising their content does not translate into good examination results.

MindFlex recommends that IB HL students complete their revision and practice papers in a simulated examination environment and under timed conditions, so as to ensure that they are able to perform well in their actual examinations. That is why we cover the Best IB HL Tuition in Singapore that offers just that for all IB HL students.

Why You Should Engage An IB HL Tutor

Benefits of Hiring IB Tuition

1. Help Students with Tough Concepts and Subjects

Some IB HL Students may have a hard time grasping tough concepts, and understanding certain subjects. In school, the pace might be too fast, preventing students from understanding the concepts or clearing their doubts. Consequently, students might start to even feel unmotivated by the IB HL Curriculum.

With an IB HL Tutor, however, students will be guided with tough concepts, allowing them to have an easier time understanding them. Most IB HL Tutors will also ensure that they are teaching ahead of the school’s pace to allow students optimal time to understand the concepts.

2. Tackle Student’s Weaknesses

IB HL Students might find it hard to correct mistakes or misconceptions without guidance from a qualified teacher/tutor. Furthermore, given how fast-paced lessons are in school, their school teachers may not be able to pay close attention to the student’s learning process, and the student’s weaknesses may easily go unnoticed by their school teacher.

Hence, it is important to engage an IB HL Tutor. IB HL students will be guided on their mistakes, and tutors can also provide close guidance on their weaknesses. In no time, tutors will be able to diagnose the student’s weak areas, and can then work on tackling those weaknesses and help students improve.

3. Help Students Clarify Doubts

At the IB HL, some students still might not be well-adjusted to the competitive environment as well as the teaching methods of their IB HL school teachers. As such, students might not be willing to clarify any doubts with their teachers. Instead, many students may let their doubts pile up without clearing them.

However, with the help of a dedicated IB HL Tutor, they will provide 100% attention and guidance to students. Students will be able to clarify their doubts or misconceptions in a private 1-1 setting.

4. Provision of Additional Revision Resources

Oftentimes, it can be rather difficult for students or parents to source for IB HL revision resources on their own. These resources could include revision summary notes and additional practice papers, and are absolutely crucial to consolidate students’ learning.

With the help of a Top IB HL Tutor, students will be provided with additional resources such as past-year practice papers and summary sheets in order to aid in their learning process, as well as supplement the materials that they are provided with in school.

What To Look For in An IB HL Tutor

Academic and Teaching Qualifications

When engaging an IB HL Tutor, it is important to select one that has stellar academic results as well as the relevant teaching qualifications.

Such qualifications are crucial in ensuring that the tutor is qualified enough to teach your child, especially at IB HL level when building a strong foundation is extremely important.

At MindFlex, we ensure that all our IB HL Tutors have the relevant credible qualifications before they are able to teach our clients under the IB HL Curriculum.


It is extremely important that you engage a patient IB HL tutor who is able to explain concepts and the various IB HL subjects and concepts in a patient manner. Under the guidance of a patient tutor, students will be more likely to clarify their doubts and misconceptions with the tutor, since they are not too scared to do so.

The patience of the tutor is an extremely important factor when selecting a tutor. MindFlex recommends that you engage a patient IB HL tutor in order for your child to have a smooth learning journey in IB.

Currently Teaching/Taught Other IB HL Students

It is imperative that you check if the tutor you are interested in engaging has experience in teaching other IB HL students. With such experience, they will then be familiar with the current IB HL syllabus and common examination practices. It is thus important that you ensure that the tutor has been teaching students of similar levels.

MindFlex also recommends that you choose tutors who have experience in teaching IB HL to students of similar levels or have the personal academic achievements to teach IB HL.


It is also very important to check if the IB HL tutor that you select is able to commit to your time slot in the long term. This is important, as it would definitely be a pity for the tutor to build a strong rapport with your child, and then subsequently cancel future lessons due to clashes in your schedules.

Here at MindFlex, we recommend that you check with your IB HL tutor on whether they are able to commit in the long-term in order to avoid disappointment and the disruption of your child’s learning.

Testimonials from IB HL Students

I have thoroughly benefitted from Mr Teo’s lessons. His lessons are always fun and he demonstrates several subjects, including IBDP HL Maths and Physics, in everyday analogies, making it easy for me to comprehend complex concepts. His explanations were clear and easy to follow and he has made me enjoy learning in IBDP a lot more. I scored a 7 for HL Maths and Physics thanks to him!

Sherwin Joo
IB Student from Nexus International School

My IB HL Economics Tutor, Mr Hong, provides me with weekly exercises that help me deepen my understanding of the subject. The constant tests and regular practices has allowed me to fully internalise all the information and build a strong foundational understanding. Topics that at first seemed so complex were made so simple after Mr Hong’s explanations. Thank you Mr Hong!

Dion Wang
IB HL Student from Chatsworth International School

In just 5 months after engaging Mr Edward for HL Physics tuition, I was no longer barely passing Physics but scoring 7 instead! He has helped me thoroughly understand the concepts instead of plainly memorising them. Thanks to his guidance, I now find myself more confident in tackling challenging questions. Big thanks to MindFlex as well as Mr Edward for all the help!

Mr Thong’s teaching is easy to understand and his lessons are well planned out. He has a way of explaining complex HL Physics concepts that makes it easy to relate to.

I am very thankful for all his help so far.
