Online IB Tutoring with Tim Woods


Extra support when you need it.

Few IB students are blessed to have perfect support in all of their classes, all the time. I'm here when you need a boost, or just a second opinion from another experienced IB teacher.



"I got a 30/34 [on my Extended Essay], which is of course an A. I would have been happy with a B (that was all I needed to get the 3 ToK/EE points), but an A is of course much better. My final IB score is 43. Thank you very much for all your help once again. I really feel that your contribution was fundamental to achieving this grade."

"A conversation with Mr. Woods is exciting, profound and extremely informative. Mr. Woods has the unique ability to make one reflect on their past while considering their future. He has helped me find my passion and has changed how I see my future."

Frequently Asked Questions

Every student is different, so I'll do my best to give you the support you need. I run the sessions through  Skype.
  1. The first step is booking your session, which you can do via the button above or this link.
  2. Once you book, you'll immediately get access to my available tutoring times. You'll also get more information to make the process as helpful as possible.
  3. The booking system also lets you easily share your Skype details and a document or a link to a document, if there is something you'd like me to look at before the session. 
  4. When the time for the session comes, we'll meet on Skype and fully talk through your challenges . 
My tutoring sessions cost $75 each. However, the cost does come down if you purchase a block of 4 or 10 sessions at once. Many people choose to do that, so they can book more sessions for the coming weeks.
Personal Skype-tutoring is an opportunity for you to get support with any aspect of your academic or non-academic life where you need support.
I normally provides tutoring for IB Theory of Knowledge, IB Economics, IB Business Management and IB Global Politics --as well as support with college planning and applications.
Student success coaching is about helping students maximize their potential. IB is stressful and it's hard to manage everything sometimes. I would love to help you get back on top of your work and to be more sure about where you're headed.
Success coaching works because we work together to figure out the approach that will work for you. Your success formula isn't the same as anyone else's. It has a lot to do with digging into your hopes and figuring out what works best for you.  
We all know mindset is important. The hard part of course is getting there. A big reason my approach works is that we focus solutions, rather than problems.
Success coaching can be useful for the following students:
  • Students who have a hard goal they wish to achieve, but are currently struggling
  • Students who have hard decisions to make, but are uncertain
  • Students who are overwhelmed by academic or other stresses and need help to combat the stress
  • Students who wish to rediscover or redefine their goals
Outcomes from sessions often result in concrete plans involving:
  • Learning strategies
  • Skills necessary for test taking
  • Discovering and practicing new skills
  • Time management
  • Scheduling
  • Achieving and maintaining school/life balance

I am from Canada, but I'm currently teaching in Phuket, Thailand. However, don't worry about the time zone aspect. I have a variety of times available, to try to accommodate people in different parts of the world. 
In the past month for example I have tutored students in Houston, Buenos Aires, Maastricht, Guangzhou (China) and Tokyo. When you log in you'll automatically get access to my tutoring calendar (to choose your time). If there's not a time that works for you just let me know and we'll find a time that works.
Yes, Tim does a lot of work helping students with their personal statements and similar documentation for college applications.
If you'd like help with this, please book a normal tutoring session and send over your documents ahead of the session (See "How does IBMastery do tutoring"). Tim will help you explore both what aspects you'll want to explain in your writing and how to express yourself in a way that will impress the colleges you're applying for.
Tim has helped students get into all types of colleges in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.
Whether you're aiming for a super-elite college (like Harvard, Yale, Oxford, or Cambridge), a small liberal arts college (like Harverford or Wesleyan) or a state school, Tim would love to help you get into your top choice.
