IB English Tutors

IB English tutoring supports students preparing for IB study in English language, literature, and related fields. Tutors help students cover various topics, including literary analysis, critical thinking, oral and written communication skills, and cultural awareness. IB stands for the International Baccalaureate. It is an internationally recognized qualification system for students aged 3-19, which aims to provide a rigorous and comprehensive education. The IB diploma program comprises many subjects, such as language and literature, language acquisition, sciences, and arts. The IB system has three divisions; the Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework designed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) for students aged 3 to 12 years old (preschool to grade 5).The PYP curriculum is inquiry-based, emphasizing conceptual learning, where children are encouraged to ask questions, reflect on their knowledge, and take responsibility for their learning. MYP stands for Middle Years Programme in the International Baccalaureate (IB) education system. It is designed for students aged 11-16 and is a 5-year program in schools. It aims to prepare students for the Diploma Programme (DP), the final stage of IB education for students aged 16-19. DP stands for Diploma Programme, an internationally recognized pre-university program developed by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). The DP is undertaken by students aged 16-19 (Grades 11-12) that aims to prepare them for higher education and work in a globalized economy. MTS teaches IB students from PYP, MYP, and DYP.

Hi, I’m Daxton. I know the importance of delivering critical feedback in a constructive manner. This helps students in understanding their strengths and weaknesses. I’m also proud of my multilingual talent, a skill set that allows me to connect with students from diverse backgrounds. This proficiency has been improved by my cross-cultural teaching experiences, which led to an understanding of varied cultures. I can confidently guide students with numerous needs and backgrounds.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching method is centered around adaptability. I believe that no two students learn the same way. Hence, I always adapt my teaching methods to match the speed at which a student feels most comfortable. Before going into the curriculum, I invest time in assessing a student's unique learning style. This assessment is the backbone of our lessons, ensuring that every topic and concept are understood.

Daxton has helped me immensely in my IB English course. I owe my success to him. He is a decent fellow and a responsible tutor. Daxton is always ready and organized. I love to converse with him about the subject and language in itself. If you are searching for an authentic, experienced, and cheerful teacher, Daxton should be your choice.

Experience

Over my 26 years in tutoring, I've come to value the significance of cross-curricular knowledge. By integrating concepts across different subjects, my students have been better positioned to understand English in relation to the world around them. This perspective not only makes lessons more engaging, but also offers a richer understanding of the material. When it comes to exam preparation for the IB curriculum, my experience has given me strategies that can help students solve the most challenging questions. 

Tutoring Approach

My teaching approach prioritizes clear communication. This means breaking down complex concepts into understandable bits, ensuring that students grasp the core of what's being taught. But it's not just about understanding; it's about engaging with the material. That's where critical reading techniques come into play. I guide my students to not just read, but to analyze, question, and interpret texts.

Chrysta started tutoring me when only a few months were left in my IB exams. I was so nervous about English, but she made it extremely simple thanks to her expertise.

Experience

My Doctorate in English literature has taught me a lot about the subject and teaching methods. I've also taught disabled students.

Tutoring Approach

I add gamified learning elements into my sessions. This approach not only makes lessons fun, but also helps in information retention. I strongly believe in the principle of learning by teaching others. Often, I encourage students to explain concepts to their peers or even to me. This not only reinforces their understanding, but also boosts their confidence. Every student's goal is unique, and I ensure that my teaching strategies help them achieve those goals.

Experience

In my 7 years of teaching, I've had the joy to work with a diverse group of students, both in-person and online. My online tutoring experience has allowed me to connect with students from different backgrounds and understand their unique challenges. I've always believed in the power of feedback. When delivering critical feedback, I ensure it’s constructive, clear, and leads to the student's growth. I believe this wealth of experience, combined with my dedication, is enough to help students excel in their English studies.

Tutoring Approach

Rooted in the English language and the IB curriculum, my approach revolves around active engagement and consistent progress checks. I believe peer teaching is a valuable method. By encouraging students to explain concepts to their peers, they not only solidify their understanding, but also develop communication skills. To monitor the growth of my students, I carry out regular assessments and quizzes into our routine. These assessments serve dual purposes: they keep the students on their toes and help me identify areas that may need further reinforcement.

Even 5 stars aren’t enough for Miss Elsie. I believe she’s an icon in english. I’ve never encountered such a tutor in this subject. If all English pupils had such a tutor, no one would dislike the subject. From her study material to assigned homework, everything is on point.

My time management skills are crucial. When guiding students through the IB curriculum, it's important to use time wisely, ensuring every topic is addressed thoroughly. I've also cultivated cultural sensitivity. As we explore the English language and its varied perspectives, recognizing and valuing diverse cultural contexts enhances our understanding. I believe this experience not only makes me an effective tutor, but also urges students to approach English studies with an open, informed mindset.

Tutoring Approach

My primary goal is student independence. English, being a vast and varied subject, requires students to have confidence. To achieve this, I focus on strategies that encourage self-reliance. Equally crucial is the student-teacher partnership because learning isn't a one-way street. By emphasizing partnership and independence, I strive to make English a subject of mastery and enjoyment for every student I work with.

Early in my career, I got involved in a study abroad program that expanded my understanding of diverse learning styles and cultural details in language. This overseas experience deepened my teaching methods, making me more adaptable to students from various backgrounds. Moreover, I've always been keen on professional development. Regularly participating in workshops and seminars keeps me updated with the latest teaching techniques. 

Tutoring Approach

In my teachings, I emphasize constructive feedback. It’s essential to me that students understand not just the 'what' but the 'why' behind corrections or suggestions. This continuous dialogue makes sure they remain involved in their learning. Plus, considering the visual nature of today’s learning environment, I add visualizations and infographics in my lessons. These tools simplify complex ideas, making them more accessible and engaging. I guarantee that every lesson is impactful, resonating with their goals and current academic needs.

Relating English to real-world experiences is vital. So, I prioritize subject-related field trips, allowing students to appreciate English outside the sessions.

By letting students teach one another, they build communication skills and deepen their understanding.
