How to ace your English Oral (OC)
Key steps students can take to prepare for their oral commentary.
Know your works and by that I mean read (and, if possible, reread) your works. It is your interpretation of the texts which will be the crux of the oral and if you don`t know the texts then you will come unstuck in the five-minute teacher and student questions and answer session that follows your presentation.
Choose your Global Issue carefully. Make the focus narrow and make sure you care!
I got excellent advice and a complete and clear overview of the different schooling systems and schools in the area. Special care in the discussion went in understanding the specific needs of my child, and as such getting several suitable and well-adapted ideas for his future schooling.
I had two tutors from Tutors Plus, a French tutor who was terrific working with me as an adult learner and the second, a math tutor who worked with my daughter over a few years. Both were a perfect match for our needs, and I couldn’t have asked for better tutors. TutorsPlus and the tutors were responsive to our needs. My daughter's tutor was great with the math as well as in building her self-esteem. It was great to have the same tutor crossing over a long period because it provided us with a good consistency. The tutor undoubtedly helped dispel those mum daughter tensions, which grow when mum thinks she can be a teacher.
My experience with TutorsPlus was excellent. I am a final year IB student, and I just recently finished a weeks worth of tutoring with a range of tutors. Since then, I have gone from being the student stressed about my upcoming exams to a student that answers every question in class! I would highly recommend this program; it is first class. Thank you tutor plus!
Has been a great resource to provide the extra support needed for year 13 maths.Lessons have been tailored to individual needs and have not just shown improved exam results but also improved confidence.Any questions or concerns have been responded to in a quick and professional manner. Highly recommend TutorsPlus.
I contacted TutorsPlus for help with my daughter who was struggling painfully with IB SL Bio. They listened to our needs and quickly put us in touch with Wendy. I wasn’t sure how tutoring by skype would work out but it has been great. During the tutoring sessions they speak face to face while at the same time sharing documents and worksheets on a split screen. Thanks to Wendy's expert tutoring, my daughter has gained more confidence, is doing much better with her marks and actually looks forward to her weekly session.
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.
We are really happy with TutorsPlus which has been providing us excellent tutors for several years. Whenever is necessary they find you new tutors in all subjects and for different aims (preparing for the IB exams, for example).Communication is easy and quicky. Highly recommended.
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!
Highly recommended! Deep knowledge of Geneva area schooling options and experiences, very practical and most importantly - tailored to our individual situation. Alex listens very carefully and recommends best solutions.
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.
