Challenges Faced By IB IA Students

Time Management

Many IB IA students face the problem of being unable to complete their paper on time. This is largely due to insufficient practice and lack of exposure to the various question types, resulting in them being unaware of how to tackle the questions during examination. As such, students often hand in incomplete papers, or hand in subpar answers.

With an IB IA Physics Tutor, however, students will be given weekly practices and exposure to other schools’ papers and past year papers to help hone their examination skills, allowing them to be more confident when tackling their examinations.

Lack of Motivation

The rigour of the IB IA curriculum and the standard of the school work is getting more difficult and demanding with each passing year. Moreover, 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 IATutor for your child. An IB IATutor 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 IA Curriculum.

Scared to Speak Up in Class

Some IB IA 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 timid or quiet temperament, and is made worse by the large class sizes in schools which can be very intimidating. They 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 IA students in the skill of Effective Communication, which is a skill that needs to be trained from young.

Hectic Schedules and Timetables

IB IA students often have numerous after-school commitments such as additional classes as well as their own personal non-academic commitments. As such, they may not have much free time after school.

As a result, many IB IA students are left feeling drained and exhausted after school, and may not have the time or energy to catch up on their revision and school homework. This is likely to put immense stress and pressure on them, which would have adverse effects on their well-being in the long term.

Why You Should Engage An IB IA Tutor

Benefits of Hiring IB Tuition

1. Make Full Use of After-School Time

Many IB IA students typically have extremely packed timetables due to their external commitments, family matters as well as the numerous enrichment lessons that their parents may enrol them in. As such, IB IA students may be too drained and exhausted to focus properly on their schoolwork and revision after their curriculum hours.

That is why MindFlex recommends engaging a Top IB IATutor to help your child make proper use of their after-school hours. The extra lessons every week will definitely be spent fruitfully clarifying doubts and revising content.

2. Aid Students in Clarifying Doubts

Some IB IA students might be too shy to speak up in class, in front of all their peers. Oftentimes, students may fear that their peers would laugh at them for asking a basic or fundamental question, or simply may be too shy to raise their voices in class.

Here at MindFlex, our Patient and Committed IB IA Tutors will provide their dedication and commitment to students, allowing them to clarify any doubts or misconceptions that might arise in a private 1-1 setting.

3. Provision of Additional Revision Resources

Oftentimes, it can be rather difficult for IB IA students or parents to procure their own IB IA 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 IA 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.

4. Train Students in Time Management

IB IA students will know that their examinations papers are usually challenging with stringent time constraints. Students are expected to complete the IB IA examination papers under immense pressure and in a short amount of time. This can prove to be rather challenging for students.

As such, engaging an IB IA Tutor will definitely be useful for students, as the tutor will be able to let students practise under timed conditions, thus conditioning them to complete their Examination papers in time.

What To Look For in An IB IA Tutor

Ability to Provide Additional Resources

At IB IA, it is probably difficult to find reliable and recent resources for your child. Hence, by choosing an IB IA Tutor that is able to provide additional resources, you can save time on hunting for resources and leave it to your child’s IB IA Tutor!

The ability to provide additional resources also means that the tutor has spent time and effort curating these resources – which is also a marker of their commitment and dedication. Hence, when searching for an IB IATutor, it would be great to look out for tutors who are able to provide their own self-collated resources.

Patience 

It is extremely important that you engage a patient IB IA tutor who is able to explain concepts and the various IB IA 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 IA tutor in order for your child to have a smooth learning journey in IB.

Prior Experience in Teaching IB IA Students

It is very important to select an IB IA Tutor that has experience in teaching IB IA students so that they will be well-versed with the IBDP syllabus.

In addition, by selecting a tutor with prior experience with teaching IB IA students, you will be rest assured that they will be able to help ease your child into the IB School curriculum and syllabus.

Commitment

It is also very important to check if the IB IA 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 IA 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 IA Students

Having heard about the rigorous Internal Assessment (IA) that all IBDP students have to go through, this definitely caused me to worry about my personal abilities and academic performance in doing well for IA.

Cheryl Chan
IB Student from School of the Arts

When I began school in SJI, the term IB IA was very unfamiliar to me. What’s more is that IB IA is such a demanding assessment that I got overwhelmed and uncertain about my abilities in managing IB IA. With the guidance and training by Mr Ray, however, I was able to understand what IB IA is all about and even pick up tips and tricks on how to score for the various IA in different subjects. Big thanks to Mr Ray!

Ann Wyairoto
IB Student from SJI International

Trying to do well for IB IA was definitely a struggle for me before I engaged MindFlex for an IB IA Tutor. With Mr Toh’s help, I better understood the requirements for IB IA and could ace the assessment for the different subjects. I could not have scored well for this segment without the help from the team in MindFlex as well as the highly effective Mr Toh. Thank you for helping me do well for IB IA!!
