Victoria Junior College 2014 - 2015
Steadfast and confident, my tutor is able to deliver lessons in a structured manner that is comprehensible for his students. He is able to organise our essays in a coherent framework that addresses the question without wasting time and effort on unnecessary details. He is also well versed with the syllabus, and was able to provide specific advice on how to improve – be it in terms of writing or content. Even though different schools adopt varying approaches to the History syllabus, my tutor proved to be comfortable with modifying his advice and suggestions to suit each student’s needs.
Pillars of Success for H2 History
60% Distinctions over 7 years
At Humanities Hub, we believe that one of the key factors for our students performing well in History is the ability of our tutors not only to simplify and clarify difficult historical concepts that have befuddled many students, but also help them to master the copious amount of content by providing a scaffold. This is done by providing outlines and reviewing content whenever needed during discussions on tackling essay questions in class.
Intensive Timed Practices
Our essay-writing and SBS (Source-Based Study) skills programme will enable our students to develop a strong writing ability that will help them score distinctions in both Paper 1 and Paper 2. In addition, we have regular timed practices so that students learn the important skill of time management while delivering a top level essay/SBS. Specifically, students will be taught how to analyse questions and know what examiners are looking for, develop paragraphs, and write effective introductions and conclusions so that they can meet the requirements of the highest mark band.
Comprehensive, yet Concise Notes
Students will be provided a set of comprehensive, yet concise notes covering all topics of the syllabus. These notes will organise huge chunks of information into digestible and easily comprehensible sections which make learning easier. As a result, students will be able to effectively apply new concepts they have learnt.
Students who are unclear about content material or skills will have plentiful opportunities to clarify their doubts 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.
