About Us

I founded IBMastery to support IB students, parents and teachers around the world. I seek-out and interviewing the best IB teachers I can find and then I put their best insights here.

I didn't think writing another textbook would do much to fill the gap I was seeing. I could see that there are a lot of students who would appreciate the insights of another teacher, so that's what I'm trying to do here.  

tim-and-bettina-in-italyAs important as good-grades are, what really drives me is helping to reduce their stress. I remember finding it very stressful to raise my performance in High School, while at the same time trying to maintain a social life and make major decisions about my life.

IB students today are busier than ever. I love helping to reduce your stress, so you can make good decisions and stay balanced in your life.  

I come from a family of teachers and social workers, so I grew up hearing a lot about people struggling. My family struggled a lot financially when I was growing up --which is partly why I love teaching Business and Economics today. There were times when our neighbours brought food around and someone even left $300 in my family's mailbox, so we could cover our mortgage.  I'm lucky to have been raised in the middle of Canada, canoeing every summer and spending my time with people who care about their community and the environment. So, I want to pay forward the support I was given growing up.

Besides teaching, I am also a fully-accredited Professional Certified Coach (International Coaching Federation). I am qualified to help people with academic and non-academic issues. Good decisions require clear thinking and coaching is great for that.

Everything at IBMastery is guaranteed and most have a free trial, so you can try it and see if it's helping you. (As I said, this isn't a money thing for me. It's about giving back and building a platform that gives out as much value as possible to the IB community. All the money goes into maintaining and growing the site.) 

If you think you might like an extra boost with your IB experience (and particularly with TOK, IB Business, IB Econ, or your college applications) I'd be happy to play a role in your success.
