Why Learning Smart IB After-school for MYP?
During MYP students don’t (really) feel the pressure of IB. Yet.
But starting with 11th grade things change dramatically. The number and the complexity of tasks increases, draining many students off their willpower and blowing up their self-confidence. Procrastination and overwhelm take over, causing many students to acquire results way below their potential.
Learning Smart IB After-school is the place where MYP students are prepared in advance for IBDP challenges.
It is a cosy and welcoming space for learning where we introduce students to efficient learning techniques, while working on school assignments. Not only will students get help whenever they get stuck, they will also be guided towards learning independently. They are taught to set goals, to pursue them through planning and most of all, to take responsibility of their work.
These are very important skills to have when starting 11th grade.
They will be trained in our T.E.M.P.E.R.A Framework, that will equip them with solid skills in time management and efficient learning.
Due to the double specialisation of our staff (IB teachers and psychologists), sessions are based on psychological techniques that enhance concentration, memory, logical and critical thinking, but also coping with exam anxiety.
We use at the core of our sessions the T.E.M.P.E.R.A Framework.
It is the only framework designed for MYP and IB students that integrates Self-Regulated Learning and Metacognition. T.E.M.P.E.R.A Framework crafts mastery in time management and efficient learning. Everything while working on your current assignments!
Long term results with T.E.M.P.E.R.A
T.E.M.P.E.R.A. creates successful independent learners!
It is crucial for MYP students to learn how to study efficiently before they enter in one of the most demanding educational program in the 11th and 12th Grade, the IBDP. When working with us the student will be ready to face the challenges of the IBDP and be a step ahead of her/his colleagues.

"My personal experience with the Learning Smart as well as with Ioana is exceptional. The amount of dedication that she puts into helping students plan out and go through with their planned schedule is remarkable. Personally, I think that, that sort of thing is necessary to help students who are lost in their studies and are unable to help themselves in a manner thar would otherwise allow them to successfully finish their studies."
"I am very grateful to Ioana for helping me for so many years at each step of my studies. She motivates me every time when I would have troubles with writing my papers, preparing for exams and also with my bachelor thesis. She taught me learning techniques and helped me develop my time management skills. She is very precise and able to keep me on track. She would always find time for helping me. Her work is distinguished by individual approach to each student." Anastasia, Russia
"I am a very good student, but even I have problems sometimes understanding and learning a specific subject, and especially than I get a big panic.
So i asked Ioana several times for help. She offered me not only learning support, but as well moral. She encouraged and motivated me. She helped me break down the content into simple one which I can understand better and than she explained me with simple words what is it about as many times aa needed, till I understood.
It was always a good and welcoming atmosphere when studying with her, and i am very thankful for her help."
