Students who take International Baccalaureate (IB) Economics Higher Level (HL) can expect a rigorous introduction to the field that covers a variety of topics; each of which could be studied for a year in its own independent class. The IB Economics HL class expects you to master each of these subject areas in turn and to synthesize information from each to gain a more comprehensive knowledge of the field. Not only do you have to memorize and retain a great deal of detailed information and complex quantitative concepts, but the course's final cumulative exams test your ability to both determine a correct answer and to back it up with a logical explanation. This can all seem extremely overwhelming to you, especially if outside assistance seems scarce.
Written resources and class-based review each only provides one-size-fits-all instruction that isn't tailored to your particular needs. In fact, it is nearly impossible for a traditional teacher to offer that level of personalization. They may gloss over concepts that you need to work on and focus on those that the class as a whole has exhibited a weakness in. In contrast, personalized IB Economics HL tutoring can help you to bolster the specific skills you most need to improve in order to excel in class and take your final exams with confidence. Many consider private tutoring to be a complimentary education to traditional class-based learning. Private tutoring can help you focus on where you need to improve.
The custom-tailored nature of private IB Economics HL tutoring distinguishes it from other study options and allows it to be as efficient and effective as possible. Varsity Tutors' educational directors can help you connect with the tutor whose experience and skill set best fits your specific concerns and goals. They can do this by helping you craft a student profile that gives potential tutors a chance to assess how and if they can help you in your goals. You can list your course curriculum, testing dates, past scores, weaknesses, and concerns, among other key details. These serve as the basis for your individualized tutoring plan.
Your tutor can consider your current level of economics knowledge and help to identify weak areas or gaps in your knowledge. This may be seemingly impossible to accomplish on your own when dealing with so much material; however, your tutor has a thorough understanding of the course and exam. They likely passed their own tests with flying colors and went on to perform spectacularly in their college economics coursework. Your tutor can create a customized learning plan for your tutoring sessions that addresses just the IB Economics concepts that you have identified as the most challenging. In this way, tutoring focuses on helping you learn the material that is most valuable to your success.
All tutoring is one-on-one, which means that your tutor can address your questions in real-time as they arise, and can offer immediate feedback as soon as you finish an assignment or exercise. The individual nature of your tutoring also means that you can spend as much or as little time on a concept as it takes for you to fully understand it, without having to be concerned about matching your learning pace to that of a class. In fact, you can arrange your sessions in the way that is most convenient to you. If you prefer in-person tutoring, you can meet at home or anywhere else. You can also request face-to-face online tutoring through our live learning platform.
