Raffles Institution 2015 - 2016
My experience with Humanities Hub was without a doubt a positive one. Every lesson was both enjoyable and extremely beneficial. Concepts were clearly elucidated and errors or misunderstandings were patiently and accurately explained. Thanks to Humanities Hub my subjects improved tremendously!
Thank you Mr Chong for all your hard work and dedication these past 2 years. From your tireless reminders on our weaknesses and the invaluable help given in rectifying them. Your energetic manner also made the General Paper lessons both enjoyable and memorable. You are truly one of the best Teachers I've had. Thank you!
Weekly Feedback on Written Work
At Humanities Hub, we believe that one of the key factors for our students performing well in GP is getting timely, regular feedback on their work (be in on essays or AQ) from our tutors. This is largely absent in the school environment due to the workload of teachers, or in tuition centres focusing only on delivering lectures to large groups of students.
Intensive Timed Practices
Our essay-writing skills programme will enable our students to develop a strong writing ability that will help them score distinctions in the essay paper. In addition, we have regular timed practices so that students learn the important skill of time management while delivering a top level essay. Specifically, students will be taught how to analyse questions; brainstorm for ideas; develop paragraphs; strike a balance without contradictions; write effective introductions and conclusions; infuse evaluation in argumentation; use a range of techniques in writing (such as literary devices) to engage readers; develop a personal voice; and much more.
Comprehensive, yet Concise Notes
Students will be provided a set of comprehensive, yet concise notes covering all topics of the syllabus. More importantly, through the use of real world scenarios presented in the form of newspaper articles, news clips, videos and other alternative modes of teaching, students will be engaged in interactive discussions on current affairs, local and global issues and construct arguments. This allows students to appreciate the currency and immediate application of new knowledge learnt.
Students who are unclear about any content gaps etc will have plentiful opportunities to clarify and hone relevant skills in a small classroom setting. Should they be too shy to speak up in class, our tutors will always be available for 1-to-1 consultations before or after class.
