IB DP

We currently have tutors for the following IB HL and SL subjects: Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Business & Management and Geography. Our tutors can also guide and coach students in their TOK essays and IA’s. An IB tutor through YashinaTutors will help build a student’s confidence in the subject. A tutor can explain concepts, build and extend subject knowledge as well as help construct study and revision plans. Closer to the exams, working through past exam papers ensures students are fully prepared for their final exams.

AP

More and more students choose to take AP’s in their final year in major International Schools in Switzerland. Our AP tutors either sat AP’s themselves or have prepared numerous students for the exams. Currently we have AP tutors in the following subjects: Calculus, Statistics, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Economics, French Language and Culture and English. A tutor will construct a study plan with the students, revise the syllabus, tackle difficult concepts and solve past papers nearing the exams.

Middle School

Whether your child is following an IB Programme (IBMYP) or a British GCSE system, it is very important to establish the subject foundation before transitioning to high school. Our middle school tutors are experienced in supporting all major international school curricula and teach Maths, English, Sciences and Sciences both face to face or online. When necessary, a tutor can also advise and guide the student in their subject choice for the high school programme.

One to one or Online tuition

One to one tuition usually takes place at the student’s home and can be arranged on a regular basis.  Our tutors will help to prepare the student for exams and will also lead them to a deeper understanding of the subject and help to boost their confidence. Sometimes simply learning about new study techniques can make a big difference in a student’s performance and improve their grades. All our tutors are engaging, patient and passionate about their subjects, and they are keen to share their knowledge and learning tricks with their students.

Online tuition is becoming increasingly popular due to the convenience of being able to access the best tutoring resources from any location.  Online tuition can also be used in combination with one to one tuition when, for example, a student goes away on holiday but does not want to interrupt lessons.

Residential Tuition

Residential tuition can be very effective when it is necessary to cover a substantial amount of material in a relatively short time. We are able to provide tutors who will support the student in intensive exam preparation at your home or abroad. Residential tuition is also gaining increased popularity amongst international families who do not have ready access to high-quality tutors or would like their children to gain fluency in a second language by living side by side with a native speaker.

Revision Courses

Every spring we hold a 2-day IB Revision Courses in Maths, Economics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology in central Zürich to help final year IB students prepare for their exams. The course usually consists of tackling tricky questions from past papers and solving as many of those as possible. The group size is maximum 5 students. It is also possible to organise 1 or 2 day Revision Courses “on demand” for both the final year and the first year IB students. The courses are usually held at student’s home and can be organised at any time of the year. Minimum amount of students is 3 students per course. Please inquire about the courses by email/phone call.
