Forward Education’s IB Maths tutoring process

The Forward Education IB Math tutoring process is simple and highly effective.

It follows four simple steps:


Our tutors begin by familiarising students with the curriculum and teaching the basics of IB Math. We start from absolute scratch to ensure any previous gaps in concepts or understanding can be adequately covered. We firmly believe in the power of establishing a strong base.


We gradually build on the core concepts, all the while ensuring students get sufficient practice. We identify the right exercises and questions for the students. In-class discussions and practice sets enable students to learn by doing.


We track performance, get constant feedback, and give individual attention to each student, so they not only get the required knowledge but also develop the key skills. From revisions of the curriculum and discussions of past papers to sharpening core Math skills and teaching how to use a calculator, we do it all.


It’s now time for exam practice. Tests and mock exams are taken at regular intervals with strict protocols, so students are prepared for the real thing. Once done, we carefully review and provide feedback, helping students learn from their mistakes and continue to improve.

Frequently Asked Questions

For your convenience, here are some frequently asked questions from parents and our answers. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Yes, it is mandatory to take at least 1 math subject as a part of the IB diploma program.

Mathematics is one of the six different subject groups in IB and students have to select at least one course from this group.

As a part of their IB diploma, students can take either of the two courses mentioned below at either Higher Level (HL) or Standard Level (SL):

Analysis & Approaches – Understanding of pure math for math-intensive degrees at the university level.

Application & Interpretation – Understanding of applicative math for students not looking to pursue math-intensive degrees at university level.

At the Standard Level, students are only expected to only take 150 hours of study for the subject. At Higher Level, the required hours of study go up to 240.

While the course syllabus does not change, the HL courses require a deeper and more detailed understanding of the subject matter.

When deciding which of the two levels to choose, the most important consideration is the university course requirement for your preferred degree. While some degrees will outright define the level of study required, most will not. In such a case, you should make a judgment call to decide if HL study will better prepare you for the degree.

So, if you’re looking for a degree in math, the HL courses will definitely help you get through it even if it is not a requirement by the university. For a degree in business, you could do good with SL level math courses.

Besides IB Math, we also teach:

  • English A and B
  • Sciences, including Physics, Chemistry, and Biology
  • Chinese Language A and B
  • Humanities, including Business Management, Philosophy, History, Economics, Global Politics, Social & Cultural anthropology, and World Religion
