Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

My tutor is a dedicated teacher who makes it a point to ensure that you understand every chapter clearly. He even incorporates videos into his lessons to make it more entertaining and make Social Studies less boring. Thanks to my tutor, I was able to grasp the skills required for Social Studies SBQs very well, and obtained an A1 in my Combined Humanities for the 2016 O-Level examinations. Thank you, Mr Tan!

Pure Geography Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Mr Ng has been an incredible tutor and I am extremely grateful to him. It is because of him that I have improved so much within such a short period of time. I came to Humanities Hub to take Pure Geography tuition, with my latest results being 18/100 or F9 grade, feeling absolutely demoralised and discouraged, never imagining that I would improve. After applying the correct study techniques, my grades kept improving, and with the newfound confidence given to me by Mr Ng, I was able to achieve a distinction in my O-Level examinations. Mr Ng taught me so much and I truly think that I would never have achieved my distinction if I had not come to him and Humanities Hub. I would recommend Mr Ng to anyone struggling with Geography now.

Private Candidate 2018

Social Studies and History Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

I didn’t know how to study for my Social Studies, especially since I was doing my O-Levels as a private candidate. But after just a few lessons with Mr Tan, I found that it was a lot easier to answer the SBCS questions. His teaching methods were concise and consistent, and it was not hard to pick up what examiners would want to see in our answers, and to develop my own personal way of answering questions and getting them right, instead of conforming to the rigid “suggested answers” that other teachers tend to give. Mr Tan also took the time to mark the extra SS papers that I did and always returned me my marked work by the following week despite his busy schedule, leaving helpful comments of ways I could rephrase or improve my answers. Thank you Mr Tan, for your never-ending time and effort in guiding through the exams.

History has always been a struggle to me with long lists of dates and names and events, but Mr Leong always made it easy for us to remember, with mindmaps and more comprehensive notes. He taught us how to remember all the details not by memorisation, but showed us how to be more familiar by linking them to events we experience in real life, or just by using our common sense in thinking about the causes and effects of every event. This way, it was less stressful and there was a lesser chance of getting mental blocks during exams and forgetting everything. In class, he would show us history videos and think of different ways to ensure the lessons weren’t too tedious, often asking us questions so that we would stay up to task and making everyone was moving at the same speed and understanding. A memorable time was when he gave us a list of Stalin jokes, which was not only funny, but taught us about how people of that time felt about Stalin, and the truth of the irony behind their jokes. He also took extra time  and effort in marking our homework, and staying back after class to explain to us how we can improve our answers. Thank you, Mr Leong!

English Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Although I have only attended Mr Chong’s classes for a few months, I feel that my English has improved greatly. I believe this is because Mr Chong is a lively and engaging teacher who makes his English lessons enjoyable and easy to understand.

Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Mr Tan has always been very caring and observant during Social Studies lessons, he constantly looks out for students who are struggling to keep up and patiently explains the concept of his teaching again. Mr Tan never fails to make his classes entertaining, and at the same time, beneficial by always seeking new ways to engage to engage students during lessons. He also has very well-organised notes allowing me to not panic before the exams.

Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Mr. Tan played a crucial part in helping me getting my A1 for combined humanities. Initially when I first registered for Mr. Tan’s social studies class, I was really weak in the subject; scoring just borderline passes. An A1 for combined humanities was far out of reach. However, after having a few classes with Mr. Tan, my combined humanities grade, especially social studies, improved tremendously. Mr. Tan has taught me all the crucial techniques and tips which were very helpful for the 'O' Levels. Without his help and support, I would not have gotten an A1.

Geography Elective and Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Both the Mr Tans (for Social Studies and Geography) are great teachers! My SS tutor has cleared many of my doubts about SS, and he has made the many confusing and intimidating SBQ rules much more easier to understand. For my Geography tutor, he has done a great job in drilling us to do better in our examinations. Although Geography is a very memory intensive subject, he has shown us ways to tackle the paper. He has also emphasized on "unpacking" questions by searching for key terms. Both teachers have their own unique sense of humor and they make our lessons so much more interesting!

Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

I am deeply impressed by the passion and enthusiasm demonstrated by Mr Tan. He is a very patient and dedicated teacher. He was willing to stay back after class to answer my queries. He helped me to improve my Social Studies results tremendously from D7 and C6 in the prelims to A1 in the O-Levels, which is a tremendous feat given a short time frame. Mr Tan's lesson is interesting and his explanation of the SBQ and SRQ skills are very thorough and easy to understand. Mr Tan is such a fantastic teacher and I am very grateful for all the effort he has put in. Thank you!

Dear Mr Tan

Really thank you so much for the things you have done for me this past 1 year. You really have been a great teacher who goes all out for your students. I really, really appreciate all the things you have taught me and I really enjoyed your lessons. Also thank you for always staying back just to answer my many questions. Also thank you for constantly giving me feedback for my papers that I have done. Thank you for giving me more confidence when I approach Social Studies! Once again thank you for everything, really can’t thank you enough!

History Elective and Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Humanities Hub has no doubt played a crucial role in my first career as a student both in the O levels and the A levels alike, and left me with impressionable takeaways that I would like very much to express my gratitude to this centre for. Humanities Hub has been a centre of learning where no simple, second rate rote learning and meaningless memorizations take place. Instead it has been a place where passions and knowledge are cultivated by teachers whose own abilities and passions are more than equal to the task. It had only been under such expert stewardship that academic excellence can be attained and true potentials unravelled, which I dare say, I experienced first-hand.

Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

I joined Mr Tan’s class just a few months before my O’ Levels. The changes in my SS grades and understanding of the subject were profound and immediate. Mr Tan was patient and passionate when conducting his lesson. Under him, my SS grade slowly improved from an E8 before I started his lessons to eventually get an A2 in Combined Humanities in my O-Levels. I am very grateful for how he has helped me overcome this obstacle in my studies.

Geography Elective and Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Thank you Mr Ng for being such a wonderful Geography teacher and Mr Tan for being a superb Social Studies teacher! Thanks for always feeding us with all the answers too, it is actually very helpful. Also thanks for marking all the essays I gave you even though it was very near the exams. I am glad that my Combined Humanities have improved from a D7 to A2 within these few months and it would not have been possible without your guidance and great notes that you have prepared for us. Thank you once again.

“My mind is more wired towards sciences and I find writing essays quite challenging......  Tuition helped and it got easier to tackle those sort of questions once I got the hang of it.”

I would like to thank you and your team of tutors for your work in the bootcamps.

As the parent of Bryce Adams, I would sincerely like to thank you and your team for the encouragement and support given to Bryce in Social Studies, History Elective and English Language tuition. Bryce had not been doing well at all for these subjects yet with your team's kind support and guidance, he managed to get a B3 for all these subjects at the O-Level examinations. Thank you once again for being there for Bryce!

Note by Humanities Hub: Bryce has some learning difficulties which required special attention from our tutors. Having been failing his Humanities and Language subjects, we are very proud of his stellar achievements in the O-Level examinations.

Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award, NUSS Medal Winner

 

The greatest gift that an educator can give to students would not be just knowledge but a good combination of knowledge and life skills.

 

I was not a stellar student, but having had the opportunity to be taught and mentored by my Humanities tutor,  I had seen tremendous improvement in my results.

 

Over the time that my tutor had taught me Geography and Social Studies, my ability to think critically was fine-tuned into an art that I had mastered due to his valuable lessons.

 

It is my belief that because of his tutelage I was able to achieve excellent results for the rest of my academic career including in the university. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who would like to learn Humanities from him.

History and Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Mr Leong is an inspiring teacher who has made me interested in history – a subject I initially abhorred. His notes and materials are concise and he is able to bring his point across in a succinct and concise manner, thus clearing up my misconceptions effectively. In addition, the practices he gave us has enabled me to grasp the techniques needed to answer SBQ questions. Model answers are clear and easy to understand as well.

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.

I would like to thank Mr Tan for helping me with my SBQ and SRQ skills in my 7 months with Humanities Hub. His lessons were thoroughly enjoyable and improved my understanding of the various skills in Social Studies (SS) significantly. Mr Tan’s lessons were also very clear and the weekly SBQ practices drilled me to become more adept at doing questions under strict time constraints. Thanks to Mr Tan’s enriching and comprehensive lessons, my confidence in facing the O-Levels for Social Studies has multiplied many folds. Mr Tan has provided great help to me to understand my mistakes and was always ready to correct any of my misconceptions during class. Thank you Sir!

English and SS Tuition at Humanities Hub

Mr Chong, my English tutor, is a great teacher as he is able to facilitate one’s learning and impart to each and every student a joy of learning the language. I went under his care after my mid-year examinations due to my poor English grades, and I could not have made a better choice. As he pushed us harder, I have seen my composition grades moved from 18 to 21, and then to 23/24! He always gave me tips on how to improve and methods to stop existing problems. I am grateful to have him as my English tutor.

Mr Tan, my Social Studies tutor, is the type of tutor who truly motivates his students to strive for better. The method that he used to engage us in lessons always worked and he made hard topics easier to handle. As a student for almost a year, I saw my results rocket from a C6 to a B3 in just 1 term! If you are indecisive about whether or not to place your child under his tutelage, I recommend you to at least try him out!

Going for Mr Chong’s English lessons have been an enlightening experience that allowed me to learn from mistakes that I never knew I had both in comprehension and composition. After going for his lessons, I was able to pick up essential skills that I could utilise for my future work.

History and Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

My HH tutors taught me many techniques to tackle History and Social Studies questions. I used to think there wasn't any need for tuition until I failed terribly in school. Even though I joined at the very last minute during my graduating year, I improved from a fail to an A1 in the 2014 O-Level examinations. I am very thankful for all that my tutors helped me with and would recommend Humanities Hub to everyone.

Dear Mr Chong

I am nearing the end of my 4-year studying journey in Singapore. But everyday I feel more blessed. I keep thinking what I would be like right now if I haven't had the opportunity to come to Singapore and see the world. I can see myself, in 3 months time, sitting in my spacious living room, looking outside the window at the grey winter sky of Xi'an, reminiscing every small and cramped hostel room I have lived while in Singapore. How times fly!

 

And thanks to you, my passion for English and the English-speaking world will never diminish. It is really like what you have told me, English has brought me to another world that the Chinese language cannot. That is why I am determined to go farther and explore even more of this world!

Thank you for being one of the most important tutors in my life!

Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

Coming to Humanities Hub helped me improve my Social Studies to a distinction in the 2016 O-Level examinations. The way that my tutor taught was helpful as it made me learn to write in a way that met the level of the Examinations Board, as opposed to what was being taught in school. On top of this, my tutor also gave us ample practice along with detailed error analysis which helped me to understand exactly how to write my essays. Due to the time trials conducted in the class I was able to ensure that time management would not be a problem, thus allowing me to focus on my techniques and content.

Both my Social Studies and History tutors have helped me a long way since I joined Humanities Hub. My grades went from a C6 to an A1 for Combined Humanities and I cannot thank them enough. The tutors here are kind, understanding and patient, which led to this great achievement. I sincerely recommend Humanities Hub to anyone who is looking to improve their grades.

My Social Studies tutor is not merely an excellent teacher, but a trusted mentor that you would appreciate in times of need. Social Studies is undoubtedly his passion and your journey will be peppered with many interesting discoveries that only he can provide to his students with his wisdom and experience. This is a journey that you will certainly want to embark on, because you know that it is not just a means to get your A, but also to enjoy a wonderful learning experience.

Pierce Secondary 2017

Social Studies Tuition at Humanities Hub

 

We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to you for guiding Marcus on his social studies during the last 6 months before his ‘O’ Level exams.


Knowing that Marcus has always been weak in Social Studies, We started him on tuition during the start of the year. However, his results went from D7 to E8 during his mid-year exams and when we almost gave up hope, we chanced upon Humanities Hub.

Knowing that 6 months is a short time, Mr Tan relentlessly gave Marcus extra test parts to practise and patiently goes over the extra papers with him during his own break time between lessons. It was due to his dedication and selflessness that Marcus is able to achieve a distinction (A2) for his ‘O’ Levels.

Hence, we would like to congratulate Humanities Hub’s success for its ability to achieve such drastic improvement. If bringing a B3 or B4 to a distinction is a walk in the park, bringing an E8 to A2 must felt like scaling Everest. Again, our heartfelt gratitude to Mr Tan and Humanities Hub.

I'm really glad I sent my daughter Renee to Humanities Hub. Besides being experienced and knowledgeable, her History teacher and Social Studies teacher were also very kind and understanding, and not only taught her, but also gave her alot of moral support and confidence when she was not performing well. They thought nothing of spending a few minutes extra time with her before or after the class to re-inforce her learning. The director also kept in touch with the teachers to monitor her progress and updated me. In return, Renee reciprocated with hard work and determination. It's no miracle that she managed to bag an A1 for her Combined Humanities.

We found Humanities Hub at the beginning of this year 2017 through a kind-hearted single mother's recommendation. I would like to thank all the tutors, the two Mr Tans and the Management of Humanities Hub for ALL their help in teaching my Wesley his Social Studies & Geography. He enjoyed every moment at Humanities Hub and he will treasure the time and money I have invested on him.

 

Special thanks to Ms Mabel and Ms Faezah for their understanding and smooth administration procedures as payment sometimes became a problem when I lost my job at this crucial time when Wesley is about to take his 'O' Levels. Thanks again Mabel, I have not thank you enough. We will remember your kindness towards us. May God Bless You Abundantly, Thank you!
