Methodist Girls' School (MGS) 2017
Mr Tan is a passionate teacher whose enthusiasm is contagious. He is able to condense long chapters into notes which are less than 10 pages long. As such, I no longer need to study from the cumbersome textbook. Furthermore, peer evaluation has allowed me to learn from my peers’ mistakes and it has allowed me to pick up useful keywords. Mr Tan has been pivotal in helping me grasp SBQ answering techniques which I had struggled with initially, making me feel more confident of my ability to handle difficult questions.

Peer Evaluation on Written Work
One of the key pillars of success for our Social Studies students is the effective use of peer evaluation in class, which is something they will not get in any private tutoring session. Almost every week, there will be an exchange of ideas in class regarding various topics and questions, guided by our tutors, and students are able to learn from each others' mistakes or successes, thus improving the quality of their work going forward.
Every lesson will include timed practices so that students will learn the art of time management, which is crucial during examinations. Specifically, students will be taught on how to analyse different types of questions, and the techniques to answer them accurately to attain the highest level of marks.
Concise and Precise Notes
Our Social Studies notes are well known to be concise and precise. The new Social Studies syllabus has a lot of content for students to go through, and our special notes collate and highlight the most important information for students to be successful in the examinations.
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.
