"I started taking classes with Sankalp about a month ago. We are currently covering the second section of the IB Economics Programme (Macroeconomics). He is very helpful, and supportive. He is always very well prepared, highly motivated to teach me and has a broad knowledge in the field of global Economics. His teaching method is professional, he approaches every topic very well structured and does not continue with the next part until we are both sure I feel confident enough with the topic. Through Sankalp, I found motivation to aim higher than my prior expected grade. I recommend Sankalp to everyone who finds themselves struggling in the area of Economics or simply needs motivation in order to improve in their work."

I have been working as a private tutor since 2016. As an IB alumnus, I specialise in tutoring IB Maths (SL) and IB Economics (HL and SL). I truly believe in the power of specialisation, this is the reason why tutoring IB exclusively allows me to focus heavily on syllabus content and exam technique. My students have undergone extraordinary improvement, scoring 6’s and 7’s when they were predicted 3’s only months before the final exam.
I adopt a very friendly approach with students, I converse with them using diction which allows for a strong bond to be created, where the student feels comfortable and at the same level of the tutor. This ensures that students never hesitate in asking questions and always grasp the concepts covered whilst truly looking forward to attending tutoring sessions. Last but not least, I adopt a mutual tutor-tutee feedback process which allows for simultaneous development and optimises the final result.
Please find below a snapshot of my tuition experience.
IB Economics (SL)
I started working with Sandra at the beginning of February and, given her significant knowledge gaps, opted for an approach that involved covering the whole IB SL Economics syllabus from scratch, ensuring that she understood each and every concept. Explaining the foundations of microeconomics and macroeconomics, Sandra was able to raise her grade from a 3 to a 5 in a matter of only 3 months, thus going beyond her own expectations and predicted grades on the May examination.
IB Maths (SL)
Given a change in teacher half way through her course, Heather lacked the confidence required to achieve her predicted grade and gain admission at Bath University. Considering the close proximity of her examinations, only 90 days away, I opted to focus mainly on past papers and used a “practice makes perfect” approach to helping Heather, aiding her in recognising the patterns in the questions and the methodologies utilised to excel in answering the questions. Heather was successful in gaining entry to Bath, her first choice University.
IB Economics (HL)
Giancarlo and I started working together with only 50 days to his May exam. By establishing a relationship based on trust and friendship, especially given our common nationality, I was able to make an impact in helping him pass his examination with a 4 (he was originally predicted a 2) and was at serious risk of failing. Giancarlo wasn’t in school, and was being taught purely by personal tutors, which is one reason why this achievement carries greater weight for me. I have remained in contact with him given the strong friendship we have created.
IB Economics (HL)
I worked intensively with Tom, who was visiting London for only a few days. Struggling to hit a predicted grade of 4, having scored 3 in the mocks, he ended up scoring a 5 on the actual exam, as a result of this intensive tutoring. I have remained in contact with him, and we meet up every time he is in London, even just to play some videogames together!
IB Economics (HL)
Tim came to me exhausted from having switched tutors 3 times. He personally told me that this was the last time he was trying private tutoring for Economics due to his negative experiences in the past, tutors reading straight from the textbook or improvising responses due to a lack of knowledge of the syllabus or of the IB curriculum. Tim required a 6 to gain admission at his top choice university, and the push from a 5 to a 6 is often the hardest jump to make, even more so than from a 6 to a 7. Under my guidance, given that we re-did the whole syllabus from scratch to ensure that he truly understood the subtle links between the various chapters of Theory of the Firm and of Macroeconomics, he scored a solid 6 on his final examination and went on to attend his top choice university.

“Sankalp was extremely helpful in allowing Tobia to focus in his studies for the IB. He was exceptionally flexible with the timings and found out the best way to study and have fun. He would allow long or shorter sessions based on the period and the amount to study. He would always come prepared on the confronted topics in order to make sure that no mistakes were made in the processes. In other question regarding economics, finance or any other subject the tutee is interested in, he is willing to help. Also, in order to make problems simple he applies them to the interests of the tutee.”
