How can an IB Physics SL tutor help you?
International Baccalaureate (IB) Physics SL follows a curriculum designed to challenge even the brightest students by asking them to apply their developing skills in many distinct ways. Like most physics curricula, students learn about phenomena such as Newtonian mechanics, electric currents, and various types of forces and fields. In addition, they also design and critique experiments and hypotheses, and complete group projects. These concepts and assignments allow students to better understand the interpersonal communication necessary in today's scientific community.
Perhaps unlike other physics courses, IB Physics SL asks students to demonstrate their knowledge in a cumulative exam format using short-answer questions as opposed to multiple-choice answers or solely numerical answers. Thus, students must understand class material not only enough to calculate a correct answer, but to explain the logic and reasoning that goes into each step of their calculation process. Answering such questions adequately requires a great deal of mental effort and thus a similarly significant amount of preparation. The difficulty of such short-answer questions can be unnecessarily compounded if students do not completely understand class material when it is presented in class, and are forced to review in a panicked manner before their exams. Working with an experienced tutor who has succeeded in his or her own IB Physics SL course can drastically simplify the learning process, saving a student a lot of time, energy, and stress.
