Tutoring Myths and Facts!

In college, I thought I was going to excel in all my classes. I mean, I had no other indication to think otherwise. I was top of the class in high school and most people considered me to be a “smart” student. After reviewing my first grade from my first college paper, I knew that something was terribly wrong. I spoke to my professor about the grade and he told me that I needed tutoring. I’m glad I was tutored in college.  It made me a better writer, thinker, and helped me develop a ton of academic confidence.

Long story short, at IB it will get tough and the tough will get going! Tutoring is an essential component of your academic experience! There is no shame in asking for help. Here is a quick break down on tutoring basics.

  • “Failing students” go to tutoring
  • Going to tutoring means you are going to get kicked out of IB
  • Going to tutoring means you can’t handle the academics.
