Finding the Best International School for Your Child


Chalk and talk schools are a thing of the past. Modern era has ushered in changes in every sphere of life, how could education be left behind? New age schools, known as international schools are taking over. These schools comprise students and staff who come from different cultures and teach syllabi which represent a global perspective. For expats, this could turn out to be the best option.
However, don't mistake any school which offers American, Canadian, the GCSE (British), the IB (International Baccalaureate) or the IGCSE (the international component of the British GCSE) international curriculums to be an international school. Schools which incorporate IB and the IGCSE are truly international schools. In India, you will find that most international schools offer a combination of IB, ICSE and IGCSE.

Is an international school worthwhile? If you've ascertained the standard of education in the school and can afford to put your child in one, it definitely is! When compared to the monotonous syllabus and teaching aids used in traditional schools, international schools appear to be a breath of fresh air for the new age learner. International schools in India offer a good mix of cutting edge teaching and internationalism built on the necessary foundations of an Indian culture. Not just that, even after students have completed their education in international schools, they are recognized and even offered scholarships in universities world wide.

Most international schools follow the International Baccalaureate which is accepted as an entrance for universities across the world. One can easily locate International Schools in the major cities of the world, although a few are located in green spaces; hill stations or outskirts of the city with options for boarding as well. International schools offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities that broaden the child's horizon by offering sufficient academic exposure as well as providing new interests and hobbies.

Finding the right international school for your child could turn out to be tedious procedure. Answer these questions and make the process easier for you:
  1. Which accreditation has been awarded to the school?
  2. Does the school follow the Indian or American year?
  3. What is the background of teachers in the school?
  4. What are the activities in store for your child?
  5. How will they help the child get used to the latest shift in location?
  6. Will transport be taken care by the school itself?
  7. What is the kind of food do they serve in the café?

Before you consider the international school directly, log on to its webpage and check all the details available online. Talking to colleagues who have returned after working abroad and have enrolled their kids in schools will help you find the best international school. It is an easy option for expats as well, in case their children are used to studying in an international environment. Remember that, not all children need the same things so it is really important to find the best fit for your child.

What You Need to Know About College Online Classes

Often when students are in college they have a choice to choose between either an online class or a campus class. They both have advantages and disadvantages. If you were considering trying an online class for the first time, you will first need to know everything about them to make a decision. To find out everything you need to know about online classes read below: When do you go to school?

– Online classes are very convenient; you go to school when you want to. It is all online and there are no reasons to leave the house for school. If you work a full/part-time job and you want to go to college online classes would be great for you. Also if you have children this will be very beneficial to you. What are homework assignments like?

– The homework assignments are usually these things called discussion questions. Your professor will usually ask you 2-4 questions a week based on what you're learning. These are on the webpage and to answer the question it is like writing an e-mail. You simply write your answer and hit submit. The question is above and your answer will be below just like everyone else's. You can re-read yours once it's posted and you are capable of reading others also. They are very easy; you do these a couple times a week. What are quizzes, tests and exams like?

– When your professor tests you on certain material it is very different from a written test that you take at school. They are usually all multiple choice and you have a time limit in which it needs to be done. If you don't finish in time you will get the remaining unfinished answers marked wrong. Although professors are usually pretty generous when it comes to giving you enough time. The only reason they are timed is because they know that you're capable of looking in your book for the answers. For them to make it more challenging they make it timed. How do you communicate with others?

– Communicating with other people from your class is very easy. You simply e-mail them or ask a question/ write a message in the forum. Writing a message in the forum allows everyone to read what you said and gives them a chance to write you back. As for e-mail you just e-mail them like you would anyone else but through the college's website. There e-mail is written next to their name in the roster. Can you meet with your teacher?

– Yes. Just because this is an online class doesn't mean you can't meet with your teacher. Their syllabus (that they give you at the beginning) usually has office hours that you can come and see them. Just e-mail your teacher ahead of time and you are capable of seeing your teacher whenever you feel it is necessary. Online classes are great; they are very convenient and helpful for most people. If you have children, work a job and don't have a lot of time on your hands, this is the best option for you. The statements above will give you the best idea for what and online class is like without taking one and experiencing it now.

Tips to Make High School Life Easier

High school student not just study and take classes. They also have to join school activities, socialize and do their homework. Apparently, they always have a lot of work in school and at home.

It is essential for high school students to be organized. If you are a high school student, it may seem like you are always running out of time and all you do is study and never get enough time with your friends and family.

Listed here seven tips for you to follow to make life of high school students easier and add extra time for you to be with your friends and family:
  1. Set the target everyday – Before you go to bed, list down all the matters you want to accomplish on the next day. A ‘to do” list will help you to know what you are going to do and avoid doing unimportant tasks, of which will get everything done more efficiently and faster.
  2. Prioritize your list of target – Once the “to do” list completed, try to prioritize the goals you want to achieve. Set your most important goal in life on top of your priority and your least important goals to down below on the list. Be realistic on your list. It is better to list on what you need to achieve and not on what you want to achieve. If you have a long-term priority, it is probably best that you put it on the bottom of your list; you can always work on that tomorrow.
  3. Utilize your spare time – As a high school student, sometimes you may not notice you have lots of spare time. Try to add up the minutes of the school bus ride to school and the school bus ride back home. Use these times to create strategy of how to finish your homework effectively. By doing this, you will get an idea on what you need to do on your homework when you get home. This allows you to finish your homework faster and have extra time for other things.
  4. Finding the right time – Sometime, students have specific time to study more efficiently. For instance, you can solve your math problems well on the afternoons; then do not wait until nighttime to do it. Mood is important here since mood can shifts immediately.
  5. Taking notes – An effective way to study is to write down important notes. It is proven much better than just plain reading. Writing down notes has an effect on your mind. You can understand the topic more effectively and memorize it more effectively than by just reading. Review your notes as your teacher might give a pop quiz on the next day. Reviewing your notes will help you be more prepared for the pop quizzes that your teacher may suddenly give.
  6. Get adequate sleep – It is unhealthy trying to stress yourself out studying when you are supposed to be sleeping. It can bring ineffective results and unwelcome health problems. If you need to sleep you have to sleep, do not force yourself to study if you cannot effectively study. If you try to study in this situation, you will most likely waste your time.
  7. Keep your goals realistic – Trying to accomplish unrealistic goals can often result in failure and frustration. Setting realistic goals that is difficult and achieving it can give you self-worth and be proud on your achievements.
Just remember, everything you need to accomplish in one day is possible if you are organized and plan everything you do in a day.

Properly Choosing a Tutorial Service Provider

Tutoring service provides an alternative way of learning for students besides attending school. It provides them the skills necessary to improve their academic performance in school.

Tutoring services is becoming popular all around the world. Because of the demands, there are a lot of companies now offering in-house tutorial services and even the Internet has online tutoring. But the most common is the private tutoring normally conducted at the house of the student. Tutoring is basically a one-on-one process of teaching. It can be conducted with a small group, as well.

This service is required when a student has difficulties coping up with the lessons in school or with a particular subject. Mostly, the elite and middle class families are the majority of clients for private tutoring services. But, in an effort to make private tutorial services available to families who are economically weak, an educational reform act under President Bush's No Child Left Behind was made to address this need.

Tutoring service provides many benefits and these covers the following:
  • It helps students with disabilities like autism, Down syndrome, visually impaired, deaf and mute, as well as mentally ill to learn their subject or acquire skills.
  • Assists students who have very poor academic performance.
  • It can help those who have excellent academic performance to be more advanced and remain challenged.
  • Tutoring aids learners attain high scores during examinations.
  • It facilitates students in preparing for different standardized college admission tests including the SAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, TOFEL, etc.
Parents who decide to avail of tutoring service for their children should consider some weighty matters before hiring a tutor or availing of a tutorial company's services. They should inquire from the company about the kind of teaching process that will be implemented for their child. Parents ought to also to find out which works better for the child - a one on one teaching system with individualized curriculum or a small group tutorial with pre-established curriculum.

They also need to inquire from the tutoring service company whether they will provide a professionally trained tutor or a novice tutor. Based on conducted studies, many tutors do not have sufficient training or education in the particular subjects that they are teaching. Also, most of the tutoring methods are just assignment based instruction. Assignment based tutoring only provides assistance on homework given by subject teachers at school.

A highly skilled tutor will perform strategic tutoring as well as individualized system in teaching. This system of tutoring does not only deliver assistance on learning assignments, quizzes, and tests but will also guide students learn the comprehensive techniques needed to master their particular subject(s). This system is far better compared to assignment tutoring method.

Oftentimes, the methods and systems used by highly competent tutors show much greater results in just a matter of weeks. Although, the outcome still depends on the capability and understanding of the student himself. While it is true that tutoring can provide countless benefits for the student, a big part of the tutoring success depends on the learner. No matter how good the tutor is if the student does not cooperate, the tutorial is doomed to fail. Thus, it is of essence that parents encourage their children to attend school classes and tutorial sessions regularly. These two must be considerably combined and done well in order to be effective.

It is vital to ask for the qualifications of the tutor prior to hiring them for your children. It is a must that parents investigate the credentials and character of the tutor because it takes certain attitudes in order to be a very good tutor. You will get to know of the characteristics of the tutor by observing him or her during tutorial sessions.

  • Must have the desire to help others in the best way possible.
  • She/He must be sensitive to what others feel.
  • A good tutor must have patience, care, understanding, and fair judgment.
