I’m not an IB graduate, nor have I taught in an IB school, can I apply to be a tutor?

As an IB tuition agency, an exceptional understanding of both the syllabi of IB subjects as well as the experience of being an IB student are both a requirement for tutors. As a result, we’re unlikely to accept applications from tutors who haven’t either studied on the Diploma or professionally taught an IB programme in an IB school. We don’t accept applications from professional/full-time tutors who haven’t graduated from the IB Diploma or taught in IB schools. If you require further clarification, please do email

Which subjects can I tutor?

For IB-graduate tutors, we typically only allow tutors to teach subjects which they studied on the IB at Higher Level, scored a 7 in and which they are studying/studied (or a related discipline) at university. For example, a tutor who studied Biology HL on the Diploma and scored a 7 and is studying/studied a BSc Biology at university would be allowed to tutor Biology. Similarly, a tutor who studied Maths HL on the Diploma and is now studying an MSc Engineering would be cleared to tutor Mathematics to EIB students. We generally don’t allow to tutors to tutor EIB students in subjects which they’re no longer studying at university or which aren’t related to their degree. For example, an IB graduate who studied Chemistry HL and scored a 7, but who is now studying Philosophy at university, would be unlikely to be cleared to tutor students in Chemistry. While we’re always happy to hear tutors reasons for why they feel they’re able to support students in particular subjects, in our decade of conducting interviews and managing applications, we’ve found tutors can struggle to stay up-to-date with the syllabi for subjects they’re not studying any longer, and that the most engaging and passionate tutors deliver tuition in subjects and related disciplines to their tertiary education. Naturally, we’re happy to speak with teachers in IB schools and clear them for subjects on the basis of their teaching experience.

How are you conducting in-person lessons safely during the COVID-19 pandemic?

We're working hard to deliver safe, reliable Face-to-Face tuition to students during the COVID-19 pandemic. To help students adapt to the changes and challenges brought about by the pandemic we’ve shared guidance and information about how to conduct in-person lessons safely with our tutoring team, adapted our support options, and provided free resources and information to students and schools. You can read more about this on our ‘How we’re responding to COVID’ page by selecting ‘COVID-19’ in the footer.
