Love Learning

Whichever Diploma subject your child is studying, we have tutors who love it, love to teach it and all this is firmly rooted in the values of the IB.

Academic Progress

Our tutors have taken students through this rigorous programme before and provide the reassurance and guidance needed to meet its high expectations.

Learning tailored to needs & personality

Whether it be skills, knowledge or confidence, our tutors are able to quickly identify areas that need to be focused on to make a lasting change. They don’t just stick to one single teaching method but draw on extensive experience of varied approaches to best suit individual students. Our tutors can also provide specialised support related to Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADD/ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, among others.

Peace of mind

All our tutors are background checked, highly-trained and have years of teaching experience. Every tutor is as unique as your child and we pride ourselves on paying great attention to match students with the best possible tutor for their needs and personality.

Parents’ top choice for IB English tutors

My experience of IB revision courses at TutorsPlus is first class. My son did the courses for higher maths and chemistry. The tutors leading both courses were highly experienced teachers. My son had been predicted a grade 5 in higher maths. He got a grade 6 (only 1 per cent off a 7). He received a grade 6 in chemistry. All communication from TutorsPlus was clear and comprehensive. A thorough pre-assessment was carried out. Class sizes were small. I have no hesitation in recommending TutorsPlus revision courses.

Exceeded our expectations !! The increase in our son's SAT score as a result of the work that two of the TutorsPlus teachers did with our son over a few months made an incredible positive difference. He was accepted into his institution of choice in the United States. Also very flexible and understanding in scheduling of sessions.

Hello, I wanted to let you know that my son's IB results came back today and he did very well in maths. Andrea Ludwig has been his tutor for the last two years, and helped bring him from an "I hate maths" perspective to one where he has been happy to engage again in a subject he used to love.Andrea was not only good with him regarding the subject itself, but also took care of him psychologically. She understood when he needed to be pushed, when he needed just to drill and practice, and when he needed to rest. My son enjoyed his time with her (even if he was always late), and they had a good working relationship.Thank you for an excellent service.

We have always been impressed with the service that TutorsPlus provides. Our daughter is at 4P in 2019 in a bi-lingual school in Geneva. We initially contacted them summer of 2018 before school started to give our daughter the opportunity to practice French and build confidence. She gained confidence from these sessions and have progressed a lot at 4P. This year, she has her exam for "Epreuves Cantonales' and when we asked her last week what areas she needs to improve - which is grammar, we immediately contacted TutorsPlus and they were able to coordinate our Tutor - Anais, who always have given excellent sessions and built a good rapport with our daughter. She is very professional and comes with materials based on the areas the child needs to work on. We highly recommend TutorsPlus!

My husband and I had the pleasure of speaking with Alex at TutorsPlus for an Educational Advisory/School Choice session. It was an invaluable conversation, that gave us great insights and perspective to inform our school choice. We have lived in Geneva for many years, yet despite having a lot of input from friends & word of mouth, we found the school decisions to be challenging to navigate. This session and the perspective & insights Alex offered were absolutely invaluable. We are now confident in our school decision for our children.I would highly recommend this service to anyone! If you are musing over school options for your children - absolutely speak with TutorsPlus. Thank you Alex & the TutorsPlus team!

What can I say about TutorsPlus and the invaluable advice we received from Alex and her team. They provided honest, real and experienced advice that helped us make important educational decisions for both our girls at a critical time for our family. I can honestly say our move to Switzerland was made so much easier based on the service we received from TutorsPlus. Thank you TutorsPlus I cannot recommend you guys enough.
