An IB Diploma programme is one of the toughest high school level programmes of the world. The programme is highly rigorous and tests the students capability for analytical and rationale thinking. This is especially true in Group 4 & 5 Subjects as the subjects in these two groups are empirical based. For example in Group 4 there are pure science subjects like Physics, Chemistry and in Group 5 there is mathematics. Here physics and mathematics are closely related as both are dependent on complex formulas and methods. Most often students face a great degree of difficulty in tackling the complex problems of physics and mathematics. To them the formulae, equations and calculations appear as Greek and Hebrew. Students stop taking interest in these subjects and slowly the very word Physics and Mathematics become a nightmare for them. The root cause of the problems is due to lack of clarity and understanding. If the matter is clear and lucid for the student, he or she will have whatsoever no problems in understanding the subjects – be it Physics or Mathematics. But if the matter becomes difficult and hard to understand, then the student feels uncomfortable with that particular subject. It is seen that most of the time the students tend to get comfortable as they are not clear and through with the matter taught with them. This makes them unhappy and bitter and they start shying away from complex chapters and lessons. As a result their marks and grades start falling. What is more problematic in these situations that the apart from poor grades in their written exams, the students also get poor grades in their internal assessments like portfolio, extended essays and other kinds of assignments and papers. If this happens, then the students get a poor score at their IB diploma, especially those who have taken group 4 and 5 subjects.
The only solution to this problem is to get the students interested in these subjects and one way is to ensure that the students get tuitions from efficient and qualified teachers. Only a good teacher can arouse a student’s interest in tough subjects like Mathematics and Physics. A good teacher can not only motivate and compel the student to perform better but can also work wonder in shaping the career and future of the student as the student starts working harder to improve the scores which in turn leads to better grades. So the role of the physics or mathematics teacher is very significant as far as the child’s grades and future is concerned. A good tutor not only encourages the student to improve his or her grades but also makes a positive change in his or her attitude towards his or her subject. Here at IB Global Academy, each and every tutor has an inbuilt quality of motivating and encouraging the student to take up the mathematics and physics subjects in a positive and interesting way. Our teachers know that arousing interest in maths and physics is one of the most effective ways of motivating and encouraging the students who are weak in these two subjects. Only a genuine interest and zeal can make a student study maths and physics with uttermost interest. However this is easier said than done as most of the maths and physics teachers have no idea of how to raise the interest of the students. They only know only to deliver the lectures without taking any extra initiative for generating the interest and love for the subject in the student’s mind. This is where IB Global Academy is different from rest others as we have excellent, dedicated and efficient teachers who not only have great subject matter expertise but also good knowledge of effective teaching and mentoring skills which motivates and encourages the students to take interest and initiative in learning new things. By our unique teaching methodology we help students discover their hidden potential in them due to which they start dreaming big and begin taking their classes with zeal and enthusiasm. We can provide you excellent and dedicated maths and physics teachers who will enhance and improve the grades of your child in a major way and you will yourself feel the difference in him or her. So call or mail us to know more about our IB Physics and IB Maths home tuition and group tuition programmes. Our counselors will help and guide you in the best possible manner to your queries.

* On May 16, 2011, Professor of Physics Emeritus Walter Lewin returned to MIT lecture hall 26-100 for a physics talk and book signing, complete with some of his most famous physics demonstrations to celebrate the publication of his new book For The Love Of Physics: From the End of the Rainbow to the Edge of Time – A Journey Through the Wonders of Physics, written with Warren Goldstein.
Note: Due to a serious complaint against Dr. Lewin, MIT has revoked Dr. Lewin’s title of Professor Emeritus as of December 2014.
