Economics, General Paper & China Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

When I crossed into my second year in JC, I had a desire to perform better than I did for my promotional examinations. It was then that I came across a flyer given out by Humanities Hub, a tuition centre which prides itself as the only one-stop education centre for Humanities students in Singapore. I decided to enroll myself in EconomicsChina Studies in English and General Paper classes and it was a decision that I did not regret.

 

My Economics tutor is a true blue Economics guru. His mastery of the subject made me confident that I was in good hands. In class, he would dissect seemingly intimidating case studies in a stepwise manner and extract relevant information that would help us answer the questions that followed. As he took us through various types of exam questions, he never failed to prove to us that even difficult questions can be tackled with ease as long as the right skills were applied. He took care that we comprehended every concept taught, and would not hesitate to clear our doubts with utmost patience and clarity. He would also tirelessly mark students’ written work and provide excellent feedback. Outside of class, he showed concern for students’ wellbeing and would ensure that we were coping well in school. I found myself looking forward to every Economics lesson as I knew I could expect a fun, interactive and meaningful session with a teacher who is an expert in the field. After every lesson, I left knowing that I was a step closer to achieving my A.

 

My China Studies in English tutor, who also specialises in History, is one who has a complete grasp of the syllabus and exam requirements. Under his tutelage, the different themes – each representing a different aspect of contemporary China – came alive to me. I soon began to enjoy the subject immensely. I was many times humbled by my tutor’s wit and intellect that made his lessons engaging and fruitful at the same time. Not only is he a passionate educator who genuinely wants to see his students perform well, he is equally passionate about the subjects he teaches. In class, we were constantly challenged to think critically and to look at issues from multiple perspectives. These skills proved to be vitally important in most other Humanities subjects, and, more importantly, indispensable skills to possess in the 21st century. I am very grateful to have found a teacher who transformed a subject that was once foreign to me, to one through which I learnt more about the world.

 

My General Paper tutor is extremely well-read and knowledgeable. She is well-aware of global happenings and would make every attempt to relate them to her teachings in class. She has a vast wealth of knowledge ranging from history to politics to religion, making her lessons interesting. Every lesson, she would come prepared with quality materials that covered both content and skills. These materials served as useful revision tools for examinations as they contained, among other things, very practical advices and tips to do well for GP. She trained us to choose the right essay questions and taught us how to analyse them in such a way that the question requirements were clear. She made sure that our questions were attended to and would, to the best of her ability, clear our doubts before moving on. Her friendly demeanour makes her very approachable and she would not hesitate to mark extra practices or stay back after classes to answer students’ queries. I enjoyed her lessons very much.

 

I am thankful for the quality education that my tutors provided me with and for the faith that they had in me, even at times when I doubted myself. I would highly recommend Humanities Hub to those who wish to receive a first-rate Humanities education and see their grades improve. Thank you, Humanities Hub, once again!

Geography, General Paper and Economics Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

My Geography tutor played a huge role in helping me to understand the concepts of Geography. With her well grasp of the subject and its contents, she would always patiently answer our questions to ensure that we fully understood all the concepts. She always provided us with very relevant and useful materials, to help us familarise ourselves with the many tricky concepts and diagrams.

While I was only under her guidance for a couple of months,I could see her dedication and commitment to help her students excel, as she often tailored the speed of her classes to accommodate all her students to ensure that everyone benefited from her lessons.

My General Paper tutor really made GP an enjoyable subject to learn. She always provided us with the latest news on a whole spectrum of topics, just to keep us up-to-date about current affairs. Not only that, Ms C also often provided us with a whole collection of extremely useful and relevant notes, which really helped us to master the necessary skills to excel in GP and which served us very well before examinations. I believe that another of Ms C's strengths is her ability to provide clear and concise explanations, and to facilitate discussion among her students.

Throughout the year under her guidance, while also seeing an improvement in my GP grades, I believe I have also gained greater interest in writing and also keeping up with current affairs.

I'm very thankful to have been able to be under the guidance of my Economics tutor. With him, every lesson was sure to be thorough, insightful and useful.

He would always go through a wide range of questions in class to equip us with the relevant skills and knowledge to tackle different types of questions. Every question gone through in class was also broken down into a step-by-step analysis along with detailed explanations to facilitate understanding.

He is very well-versed in terms of the syllabus and content of the subject. Unlike many other tutors, he tries to make his classes applicable by relating many Economics concepts to real life examples, while also making lessons fun and engaging for students.

 

My HH tutor certainly helped me gained a better understanding of Economics. Thank you for all your guidance and help, sir! Without you, I would definitely not have been able to improve so much!

My HH tutor is a very dedicated History teacher who is willing to provide thorough notes and outlines when one asks. He will always try to clarify any doubts we have. When one attends his lessons, he will always attempt to make the lessons more interesting through his fun facts. He is a great teacher who will definitely make the A-Level journey seem less tough!

General Paper Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

At Humanities Hub, lessons with our General Paper tutor were not solely about making the grade but about exploring the knowledge and skills that GP is comprised of. The weekly classes became an anticipated affair because every week brought insightful discussions and meaningful lessons learnt. Attaining the 'A' can definitely not be compared to my two years of learning and growth.
GP with our tutor has enriched my JC experience. I have enjoyed this unique learning opportunity, and this I feel was the greatest takeaway I could have ever asked for.

THANK YOU SIR AND THANK YOU HUMANITIES HUB.

General Paper Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

I entered Humanities Hub for GP under Mr Chong after my devastating O Level English grade of B4. I was so worried that I wouldn't be able to do well in GP with a B4. But with Mr Chong’s guidance, I managed to get an A in GP in the A Levels, after getting an E for Prelims, and never getting an A for GP in my entire JC life!

Honestly, I didn’t even think that I would get a B! I still remember how Mr Chong would encourage me saying, “Reshma you can get your A!”, and I would smile back saying, “Ahh, I’ll try my best, I got an E for Prelims! There’s no way I am going to even get a B!”. I really doubted my abilities. But Mr Chong was so motivational, I used to write for him an essay and an AQ almost every week in the months leading up to the A Levels, and he would mark my essays and give me constructive feedback (even on the same day!) and they cumulatively really pushed me to write even better.

Mr Chong’s notes were really effective and rich in examples - which is what every GP student is hungry for! I also really enjoyed the way he trained us for Paper 2, by giving us a comprehension to do every week and going through our answers individually with us the following week so that we could really see our mistakes and work on them. Paper 2 was always my weakest section, and I remember failing it terribly in almost every GP exam because my answers were not concise. But Mr Chong really told me exactly how to tackle the question in a very systematic way and I deeply appreciated that.

To all GP students out there, you are in good hands with Humanities Hub! Do your best and really push yourself all the way because trust me, IT WILL BE SO WORTH IT! And once again, thank you so much Mr Chong! I love GP!

History Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

My HH tutor knows how to make a History lesson interesting through his own way of joking and this made every lesson enjoyable (I did not dread a single lesson). Not only are his lessons fun, they are also enriching as he taught us structure, common mistakes to avoid and important points to take note of. His 'no question is stupid' attitude makes him approachable, thus allowing us to clarify all of our doubts without having to feel judged.

Economics & History Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Unlike most students, I only began going for tuition in the second year of JC. I realised at some point, that I was beginning to fall behind. In school, I found myself swamped by an incredible amount of H2 History content, and began to struggle. Dealing with both the history of the Cold War and its aftermath as well as the history of South East Asia was no easy feat. It was at this point I began to search for history tuition. Because I felt weak in South East Asian history, I signed up for tuition at Humanities Hub. The next few months were undeniably tough, even with tuition, but I slowly found myself performing better. My tutor provided a unique viewpoint on Southeast Asia, and linked countries together, creating a coherent and cogent image of the region in my mind. I particularly liked how he utilised the whiteboard, using varying colours and diagrams to illustrate his points and concepts (such as national identity). As a visual learner, this helped me greatly. He also provided notes that supplemented my own as well as my school's notes. With his help, I made a lot of ground in just a few weeks. He encouraged group interaction, and was generally very open-minded, discussing Singapore and its relationship with its neighbours thoroughly. History soon became more than a subject to me, and I found myself beginning to enjoy history lessons, both in and out of school. I nearly topped my cohort during Prelims, a very remarkable feat considering I had been failing previously. In my school teacher's words, I went from "zero to hero". While I did not score an A for my History A Levels, I still got a reasonable B. I regretted not signing up for International History at Humanities Hub, as this might have led me to an A. Despite not scoring an A, I am still very grateful to Humanities Hub and my tutor.

Economics, History and China Studies in English Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Desperate to achieve better results after my promotional examinations, I sought the help of Humanities Hub, in History, China Studies in English, and Economics. What I found was a place worthy to be named as such.

My tutor who coached me in History and China Studies made sure there was good interaction in class. He astutely lifted the burden of indoctrinating students with content-heavy materials, and instead, injected witty puns and sarcasm to make lessons far more productive. Best of all, he summarised content into their themes, compiled relevant articles, and provided a comprehensive outline for essays, such that we only needed to fill in the blanks.

My Economics tutor was a great help to my Econs woe. His lessons were well-planned and structured, and he would frequently relate to contextual examples, exposing us to actual examination scenarios. He also gave us opportunities to practice essay writing skills where he would gladly mark our essays and give comments on how we could improve, even in his free time. His repository of notes and model essays are venerated by all his students.

Both these tutors have left a deep impression on me as educators who are passionate, driven and extremely emphatic on the well-being and growth of their students. Humanities Hub did not just represent a venue for tuition, but acted as a sanctuary where I could do my own revision, in the care and company of these amazing tutors and staff.

Like what my History tutor always says,
"There are teachers, and there are teachers".

History and China Studies in English Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

From someone who couldn't differentiate between Suharto and Sukarno, to obtain an A for H2 History is beyond my wildest imagination. My tutor is not just a brilliant teacher who is History whiz, but a vivid storyteller as well, regaling us with fascinating yet relevant information about the subject, and constantly challenging us with alternative viewpoints. He is so good that he is able to turn any of your opinions into strong arguments, thus giving me the necessary confidence to excel. I am eternally grateful for his teachings and warm-heartedness. 

I have always been keen on China Studies, although it is a subject that will draw odd looks or a few sneers from others. I liked it because it is such a dynamic subject, where our understanding of the country and its politics (almost the same thing seeing that CCP shapes China) are constantly challenged by recent happenings. My tutor, with his seasoned skepticism and wit, always helps us analyse the loopholes in Chinese politics, and contradiction in the actions by politicians. He draws his students out on their own pace, allowing them to sharpen their own arguments over time, instead of force feeding us with model answers that just wouldn't work for contemporary China Studies (since its a fluid subject). For practical students out there untouched by my personal sentiments, he also provides a variety of essay structures that will differentiate you from your peers. As for Independent Studies, my tutor is tireless in critically assessing weak arguments, correcting spelling and grammatical mistakes (see how thorough he is?) and giving mind-blowing insights that will make you question the standard of your own work, but if you follow through with his advice, you'll most probably get an A too.

I was very privileged to have been taught History by Mr Matthew Quek in Year 2008 at Hwa Chong Institution (College Section). Mr Quek takes a serious attitude towards his teaching. He delivers the contents of the course in an effective manner that successfully captures and sustains the attention of his students. He relates well to his students and clearly sets out his expectations and course requirements.

 

Mr Quek’s detailed and comprehensive History lecture notes supplement his lectures well. He also encourages students to conduct further independent research and to take a genuine interest in their learning. Mr Quek facilitates a conducive environment in tutorials, where students are encouraged to examine issues in depth, clarify their doubts and share their knowledge with each other. Mr Quek also graciously offers constructive and encouraging comments in his feedback on assignments, which have always been promptly returned. His tireless attitude towards teaching motivates students to be similarly committed and interested in their work.

History Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Humanities Hub is a tuition centre with the most hardworking and dedicated teachers. Mr Ng, my History teacher is very understanding and his lessons are very well planned. He gives students a no nonsense guide to score in the A-Level examinations and his lessons are fun and entertaining as well. With his guidance, I managed to improve my history grade from a U grade in school to an A at the A-Levels. Mr Ng is patient with his students and the rigour his students endure only drives us to do even better. With Mr Ng’s help, I managed to grasp concepts that eluded me and the complexities of History seemed to be that of a distant memory.

My experience with Humanities Hub was undoubtedly 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, all my subjects improved tremendously!

Thank you Mr Sunny Chong, my GP tutor, 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 lessons both enjoyable and memorable. You are truly one of the best teachers I've had. Thank you!

Economics Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

My HH Econs tutor was a wonderful teacher, who made Economics both fun and interesting. His lessons were easy to understand, and my Economics grade improved from a E in JC1 to an A for the JC2 CTs and the 'A' Levels. His explanation of concepts was clear and detailed, and I learnt how to structure my essays and answer case study questions effectively.

History Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Ask me how confident I was in securing an A for History 3 months before the A Level examinations, my answer would have been a definite no. This was one of the reasons that prompted me to join Humanities Hub’s H2 History classes, which was in all honesty, one of the best decisions I have made.

 

Southeast Asian History lessons were interactive and highly engaging. My tutor’s professionalism and dedication ensured the garnering of important skills in essay writing such as the development of arguments and even down to essential details like the arrangement of your arguments. Likewise for International History, lessons were enriching and thought-provoking. The tutor’s guidance will develop your ability to construct sound arguments in your essays and train up strong SBQ writing skills.

 

Within a short span of 3 months, my ability to construct, develop and present convincing arguments improved significantly. Under the guidance provided by my tutors, I was able to secure an A at the A-Level examinations (something that I wouldn’t have dreamt of before!). At Humanities Hub, you can trust that you will benefit from the lessons, much thanks to the competence and commitment of their experienced tutors.

Geography Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

I am so thankful to have had my HH Geography tutor for the past year. Committed and kind, she would patiently answer any queries, ensuring that we were familiar with tricky concepts or diagrams. Besides her astounding grasp of content knowledge, she was equally adept at teaching us critical essay skills. My personal stumbling block was always an inability to craft great, structured essays under timed conditions. However with Ms Z’s guidance, I was able to overcome this problem within the short span of a few months.

 

I believe that one of Ms Z’s special traits is her ability to tailor her teaching styles to suit different students. She did not just teach us the key concepts, but also provided us with highly relevant material and examples. Extremely attentive, she would adjust the pace and style of her lessons according to our needs and varying difficulties we were facing.

 

Ms Z’s dedication to her students was especially apparent during the lead up to the A levels. She not only gave us additional academic help and practices, but also offered us emotional support and guidance to alleviate our worries. She went above and beyond what I had expected and I am so grateful for all of her help thus far. Thank you Ms Z! This was a battle that I could not have fought without you!

Steadfast and confident,Mr Ng 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, Mr Ng proved to be comfortable with modifying his advice and suggestions to suit each student’s needs.

My tutor is a very dedicated teacher who conducts his China Studies in English lessons in an engaging manner. His constant emphasis on writing an essay in a clear, concise manner with elaboration of points backed by evidence has helped me polish up my essay writing skills. This skill has proved to be highly important not only for the A levels, but in academic writing for university as well.

Economics and History Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Despite being terribly hopeless in grasping the various concepts in economics, my HH tutor was really patient and repeatedly taught them to me, ensuring that I understood and knew how to apply them! I always look forward to attending his lessons because they are really enjoyable. His notes are really helpful as well, aiding my   revision in my own time. It is thanks to him that I manage to salvage my dismal grades for economics in the preliminary examinations. I will definitely recommend my juniors and all sitting for the A' Levels to enroll with Humanities Hub! 

 

The lessons by my history tutors were both insightful and thought-provoking. They fueled my interest in history, providing case studies and evidences outside of my college's history notes. These were extremely useful in essay-writing, where their input allowed me to improve my writing style and quote examples that were more unique. Even though I joined their classes late, both tutors made sure that I was not left out, even providing me with the notes from the past lessons. I am most grateful to have had their guidance!
