What is Special About IB Learning?
The International Baccalaureate program not only requires students to develop their critical thinking skills but also to learn how to communicate, take risks, care for others and create a balanced life.
Here’s a list of reasons for what is special about IB learning.
1. IB learning emphasises global citizenship.
Originally created for the children of diplomats, the International Baccalaureate is based on teaching students how to become global citizens. Today the world is much more interconnected than ever before and it’s important for students to learn how to work with people who have different backgrounds and outlooks on life. The International Baccalaureate excels at preparing students for this future because developing a global perspective is an essential part of becoming an IB learner, not an afterthought. Each of the IB curricula is focused on issues with personal, local, and global significance so that students are immersed in different cultures and traditions from an early age.
2. It celebrates diversity.
In addition to challenging students to think globally, the IB program encourages them to ask questions and develop empathy for others. At Good Tutors Finder, students have an amazing opportunity to learn about different cultures. All students have to do is turn to the person next to them to find an expert willing to share their personal insight and life journeys that can come from anywhere in the world.
3. The IB program pushes our tutors to keep learning.
We’ve found that students are inspired most by tutors who love to learn as well. The IB program challenged our private tutors to figure out the best way to combine IB learning. Every day, Good Tutors Finder students are learning how to ask questions and find the answers to the challenges they face. Our tutors are constantly learning new ways to push students to do their best.
4. It builds a strong foundation for future success.
Our students head to high school prepared to excel academically and socially when they head to their best-fit high schools. The International Baccalaureate program is a big part of that. On their way to becoming IB learners, Good Tutors Finder students learn to become skilled thinkers, inquirers, communicators, and risk-takers. They enter high school confident in their ability to take on new challenges and have a clear understanding of their own unique strengths and areas for improvement.
We see our students develop empathy and use their problem-solving, planning, and leadership skills to help solve real problems while fulfilling their volunteer requirements with the help of our tutors who master the IB Diploma.
