Our Story

IDRAK Virtual Academy: A Holistic Student Support Platform

IDRAK Virtual Academy is a homegrown e-learning concept that was created to battle the aftermath in education which resulted from the COVID pandemic in 2020. Kuwait, among other countries in the region, experienced significant delays in returning students to school – thereby setting them back in terms of preparedness for college and beyond. 

IVA is the first learning platform in the region to offer a variety of academic support services as well as career planning and self-development tools for high school students. We want to shape future leaders who can positively impact our planet by teaching beyond the classroom and supporting our students on their growth journey and self-discovery. While learning agility is our priority, we also focus on nurturing other important leadership qualities and skills such as integrity, delegation, self-awareness, empathy, communication, and respect.

Our Philosophy

“Learning Through Understanding”

We believe that you can learn anything by building a deep, solid understanding of the basics. Our educational approach focuses on establishing strong foundation of knowledge upon which our students can pursue advanced courses and degrees. 

Our goal is to help students understand, not memorize, the basic concepts in math and the sciences upon which complex applications, technologies, and inventions are created. 

This will ensure that our students are equipped enough to make positive contributions to the development and sustainability of our planet.  

 

Our Curriculum

Built in-house to meet international standards

We take great pride in our expert team of educators, who have years of experience in teaching, lesson planning, and curriculum design. 

This is what really sets us apart from the competition. Other tutoring platforms use freelance tutors, which means weak screening processes and inconsistent quality in education. 

We on the other hand have screened, selected, and hired the best in the business to be part of IVA’s team full time. Quality of education and consistency are our top priority. 

Under our educators’ expert guidance, we were able to develop and deliver the Common Core Curriculum through our Self Study Courses for Algebra, Physics, and Chemistry. Self Study Courses are geared towards students who would rather learn on their own time, at their own pace. Our Self Study Subscription gives students unlimited access to a growing library of high-quality study material. 

If you’re not in an American schooling system, not to worry! Our educators speak a ‘universal language’ in academia and can deliver various types of educational curricula, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) and IGCSE, through online private tutoring sessions
