IB English (alternatively called IB Language A) is the English Language Arts course within the International Baccalaureate program designed to instill a lifelong passion for literature in students. If you or your child are experiencing difficulty in keeping up with this challenging course, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a professional IB English tutor to help unlock your academic potential.
IB English tutoring sessions can help students with the following aspects of the class:
- Exposure to a variety of authors and genres
- Improving a student's ability to express themselves via oral and written communication
- Developing a basic knowledge of literary criticism
- The ability to apply critical thinking and analytical skills within a literature context
The IB English curriculum allows students to select the literary works they wish to study from a provided list. However, choosing the "easy ones" isn't really an option when your choices consist of works such as Pride and Prejudice and several Shakespearean plays (Hamlet, Macbeth). If you're having a hard time digesting your selections, IB Language A tutoring sessions can give you the extra time you need to do so. Your IB English tutor can also answer any questions you have so that you don't start to feel discouraging.
