Extended Essay Workshop
We are delighted to offer our first-ever Extended Essay Workshop for rising seniors, Monday to Friday, June 24th to 28th (see detailed schedule below).
The EE is an independent, self-directed piece of research culminating in a 4,000-word paper. For most students, this is their first experience at carrying out in-depth study of an issue over a long period. At this point, they should have chosen the subject (from their six DP subjects) and a topic of strong interest to them. We are here to support them in the next steps.
A small team of highly experienced IB tutors will work with students in three different sessions as follows:
Session 1 on Monday, June 24th, 9:00-12:00: understanding the scope of the paper / learning the mechanics / overview of requirements / brainstorming topics if necessary / formulating an appropriate research question
Session 2 on Tuesday, June 25th, 9:00-11:00: visit to the Zentralbibliothek to learn how to use the extensive resources / where and how to conduct relevant research
Session 3 on June 26th, 27th or 28th (date & time TBD): individual 1-hr meetings with a specialized tutor in a subject-specific session: creation of an outline / development of an argument
Cost: CHF 150 per session (may be attended individually) or CHF 350 for the full workshop
Our goal is to provide students with all the necessary tools in order to begin writing independently over the summer and have a solid first draft ready to submit by the start of the new school year.
Register per return email by Friday, June 14th.
*Participation is limited, spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
*If you are interested in attending but the dates or times don’t suit, let me know and we will do our best to accommodate the majority.
*Feel free to pass this email on to friends, colleagues, neighbors and classmates.
We very much look forward to working with you / your student on this exciting project!
Mock SAT / ACT Tests
The test-taking experience is simulated in a large classroom with other students, professionally proctored under strict time limits. Such practice has proven an invaluable part of standardized test preparation. Please contact us for further details on the next scheduled mock at The Learning Center.
Group SAT / ACT Prep
Test prep can be organized for small groups of 4 to 6 given sufficient demand. Please contact us for further information.
Test Proctoring for Distance Learners
We are pleased to invigilate official exams for local students enrolled in online courses. Our facilities include quiet classrooms, a wireless network, computer, scanner and printer. TLC is an officially approved proctor for Harvard Extension, UC Berkeley Extension, Penn State, Stanford Online High School, and many other remote learning programs.
Editing services are available for anyone producing an English document that needs to be polished and perfect. A highly qualified and experienced editor will proofread for stylistic improvements, make all technical corrections, and provide creative input if appropriate.
