International Baccalaureate (IB) Student Underachievement

Public and private schools in Metro Vancouver deliver very challenging International Baccalaureate (IB) programs from Grade 10, and preparation for these courses in Grades 8 and 9.

These courses are managed by The International Baccalaureate non-profit organization to produce a very high standard of academic competence.

Sometimes, as students proceed to upper levels of these courses they find them particularly challenging, and, most importantly for their future, they are not achieving the grades they need to apply successfully to the universities of their choice. This affects their whole future.

If this is the case, the neuropsychological and educational assessment offered by the Vancouver learning Centre can identify strengths and weaknesses, gaps in the hierarchies in subjects like Math and Science, and difficulties in any academic subject.

From this a specialized program can be built and delivered that previews material and uses dynamic teaching to improve skills and marks on tests, projects, essays, etc. for the current year, as well as provide a whole array of appropriate best practices, learning tools, techniques and strategies that will improve the performance in both high school and university courses.

To access the Vancouver Learning Centre programs, please follow the next steps below.
