The IE Method

IE is the only tutoring company in the country that has its own integrated model of learning, proven to work wonders for every student.

 

So how does it work? 

 

 

1. Knowledge

We work hard to ensure your child is 100% confident in their subject material, and then build more advanced understandings from there. Our qualified tutors will give your child the “subject intuition” to excel in their assessments, and engage with confidence in the classroom.

2. Context

Our tutors carefully consider the background context of the student to make lessons relevant, interesting and useful to your child on a personal level. We’ll also help them to understand how the subject relates to their everyday life and wider society.

3. Personal development

Tutoring with us is about personal growth as much as it is academic. Our tutors are trained to help students develop healthy coping mechanisms for stress, anxiety and demotivation – as well as building a strong psychological foundation for the many challenges high school brings.

4. Learning and thinking

We make sure that students build transferable thinking skills that will benefit them in all their subjects. With us, your child will become a curious, compassionate and critical thinker, and you’ll witness a renewed interest in both their subjects and the “big questions” facing the world today.

5. Mindset

Weekly lessons with us will build your child’s sense of self-esteem and confidence. By closely tracking progress and celebrating small victories, your child will develop a “growth mindset” and become inspired to learn and improve on the daily.

6. Self-management

Our tutors will design your child a personalised game plan for achievement, and set them personal long and short-term goals to meet across the school year. With regular reflection, a realistic study plan and the weekly commitment, your child will gain the self-management strategies needed to thrive at Uni, in the workforce and beyond.

Over the past ten years I have noticed that when student’s aren’t doing well at school, it’s never really to do with how “smart” they areMore often, other factors are responsible – they don’t have the right learning strategies; they aren’t interested in the subject; they’re chronic procrastinators; they get anxiety around exams; they don’t see why it’s important. The list goes on. From this, I made a list of all the reasons why my students were performing badly (or well) at school and divided this into six main themes. Then I conducted a literature search and review and found research covering all six main themes and their importance to learning.”
