How we work
What is so special about Go4IB?
At Go4IB students own the process, dictate the pace and keep the responsibility for understanding. They are seated facing each other and lead the class by expressing their needs, asking questions, working out concepts and past exam papers on their own or in a small group, and presenting those to the rest of the group. The trainer is part of the group and there is not much “talk-and-chalk” teaching.
Students are collaborating, coming to the class prepared and acting in the spirit of the IB enquirers and relentless knowledge seekers. The trainers’ task is to provide the revision materials, necessary explanations, and help create a constructive and creative learning environment. As the students are spending their holiday-time in a classroom setting, they want to use their time in the most efficient manner and learn as much as possible!
Students experience numerous moments of success: as each one of them contributes to the group this gives them a sense of academic confidence. They are actively acquiring knowledge rather than passively leaning back in a full classroom. This is encouraged by assigning them different roles such as time-keeper, reporter, material manager, facilitator, etc.
Go4IB is dedicated to providing specially tailored support for IBDP students in math and written assignments in various subjects so they can get the best possible results in their exams.
