IBDP Tutoring

Course Concept

The first semester of Grade 12 of the IB is typically hectic and rushed, resulting in a lack of preparation, weak proposals and subsequent difficulties during the later research and writing stages.It is especially important that candidates come to Grade 12  in top form since their performance in the first semester provides the basis for the predicted grades supporting their university applications.

CourseLeap’s Mid IB courses provide personalised guidance in developing effective research proposals for students’ internally-assessed projects, representing 20% to 30% of their final grade. This includes courses for IB Math and other subjects, TOK Essays and TOK Exhibitions, that prepares them in a highly productive manner to maximise their chances of achieving the top grades in their respective subjects.

Testimonials

“I joined the mid IB course to help maintain my lead and also practise maths during the

break. We covered so much in 8 days, integration, permutations and combinations and

probability and statistics, and guidance for math exploration topics, that I was surprised about. The syllabus we had covered in this course amounted to at least 2 months in school. This wasn’t a course where we just brushed over topics but one in which we delved into problems and solved them in different ways. There was not one homework problem that wasn’t discussed thoroughly and not one class where we didn’t learn anything. And on top of that, the various thinking strategies and calculator tips we had learnt were not something we could expect from school. I feel like not only have we covered the syllabus ahead but also covered it with such depth that our notes are what we would need when the topic comes around in school. I would like to thank Ms. Dhingra for the help and great experience.”

“We managed to finish an entire topic, part of the core of Math HL in 8 sessions! …I learned many tips for the use of the GDC and learned many new strategies to approach a problem. That is what I find the best about Mrs. Dhingra. She teaches you many strategies to take on a problem and helps you understand that every question is based on the same simple premise. Additionally this course also helped me manage my Extended Essay which is in Math. I was able to get a clear outline with the help of Mrs. Dhingra and it has made my EE work a little easier. We also discussed math exploration and started the thinking process for that which gives me a head-start when it is introduced in school. “
