Proven Methods To Scoring Well For Each Component Of History

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HISTORY TUTOR

Important Qualities to Look For In A Good History Tuition Teacher

  • Our History tutors range from current & former MOE teachers to undergraduate & graduated tutors (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) majoring in History or Political Science. Every tutor whose profile we will show you has a strong record of helping their students’ marks increase. They scored A’s for their own History exams, and can teach you useful exam tips and techniques so that you can achieve a quick boost to your grades
  • To ensure the effectiveness of every History tuition session, Tutors Singapore will recommend only tutors who have relevant degrees (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) in the subjects they teach. Each History tuition teacher must also have a track record of helping their students gain valuable marks during important exams
  • The MOE changes the syllabus whenever there is a need to be current with industry/the economy’s needs, trends and developments
  • These changes affect the History content – and importantly – the exam requirements, answer formats, and marking schemes
  • It is crucial that the History tuition teacher is familiar with the most updated syllabus, and that what they teach does not contradict what is taught in your child’s school
  • When providing recommendations of carefully-shortlisted History tuition teachers, Tutors Singapore will list and describe the relevant teaching experience of our tutors to assure you of their abilities to help students at your level to progress academically, and to achieve higher grades
  • Homework is given by school teachers so that their students can practice what was taught in school. It is important to be up to date in doing your homework, so that you can internalize the content. When you hand in your homework, you will find out from your school teacher if you managed to correctly understand what was taught in class. Knowing this helps tremendously when you are revising content for your school exams and for the national exams. Revision is not useful if you are learning and re-learning the wrong concepts that you think are right. Giving your teacher the wrong answers will not help you gain higher marks
  • Tutors Singapore’s History tuition teachers are experienced and have methodical knowledge of the exact skills and content that a student will need to excel in each of the chapters that you must master, in order to do well in your exams. Our History tutors are also able to create personalized learning schedules, so that their students are able to understand, absorb and retain new knowledge, more efficiently and within a short period of time
  • The syllabus, content and examination practices differ for each level of education
  • Many History students are frustrated with not being able to instinctively understand the content that is taught by their school teachers
  • Our tutors are familiar with the newest MOE syllabus, and they have taught students at your academic level
  • Tutors Singapore accepts tutor applications only when the tuition teacher has a degree (or is in the process of obtaining a degree) in the subject that they teach. This is to ensure that the private tutor has the necessary knowledge and expertise to adequately teach the correct content as well as to help the student arrive at error-free answers when responding to important exam questions
  • When providing recommendations of carefully-shortlisted History tuition teachers, Tutors Singapore will describe the relevant teaching experience of our tutors to assure you of their abilities to help students at your level to progress academically, and achieve higher grades
  • It is important that the History tuition teacher puts in the best effort when guiding and teaching you. A dedicated home tuition teacher will ask pertinent questions in order to know which areas you are struggling with. A committed private tutor is punctual and rarely would suggest that the lesson has to be re-scheduled. Competent tutors have scored A in History when they took their O and A Levels, and they would have at least a Bachelor’s in History or Political Science. This means that their professional knowledge of History can help you achieve better grades, whether you are in secondary school or in junior college. 
  • When recommending History tuition teachers, Tutors Singapore will facilitate communication between you and the tutor to ensure that both parties have a common understanding of expectations before confirming the tuition arrangements.
  • It is often the best for you to continue with one good tutor if the History tuition teacher is capable of teaching you and has already built a connection with you. This will ensure that you can benefit the most from his/her lessons since the tutor will be more familiar with your weaknesses and strengths, and can work on them throughout the subsequent academic levels
  • Our History tuition teachers have between 2 to 30+ years of experience in teaching students who are often from different schools. These History tutors have  accumulated notes and past year papers that they can provide to you for additional practice. Some tutors also prepare mind maps, common questions and pitfalls in past year papers, as well as self-designed practices referenced from assessment books
  • Tutors Singapore will indicate in the tutor’s profiles if the History tuition teacher is able to provide materials and resources for the students, when we recommend between 4 to 10 qualified tutors to you
  • Students each have different starting points as well as grade goals. Some students want to consistently score an A, and some students are aiming to get a C or a B for their national exams. Your History tuition teacher will evaluate your learning needs, and will suggest workbooks and practice sheets that are most suitable for you so that you can master content that will help you quickly achieve your grade targets
  • The best History tuition teachers can identify their students’ root causes of learning challenges, within the first lessons. These History tutors are experienced in using relevant step by step methods to competently address these vulnerabilities. They will create a study roadmap to help you systematically learn difficult content within short periods of time
  • We show tutor profiles only when they had received good feedback from parents and students. The quality of the History tuition teacher is very important to your academic success
  • Tutors Singapore removes from our database the details of tutors who did not receive positive comments

Challenges Faced By History Students In Singapore

Challenges Faced By POA Students in Singapore

>  Difficulty in analysing sources and artefacts from the past

> Students are not able to learn how to appreciate and understand our diverse world as they discover how past societies functioned and why people might have behaved the way they did at different points in time

>  Challenges in remembering all the historical facts, sequences, implications and dates. Students are confused about why things happened in the past, or how past events shaped the present

>  Weak ability to sift through competing sources of information and have difficulty in discerning information credibility that is given by different media that offer conflicting reports of an event

>  Inability to develop an inquiring mind by asking probing questions about the past, hence the student is not equipped to analyse evidence critically so that they can distinguish fact from opinion, think critically about where and how information is obtained, and distinguish between the different interpretations of the past that exist

Student is not able to construct their own interpretations of the past, and put forth cohesive and well-substantiated arguments based on evidence. Because of this, the student has difficulty in cultivating their minds to refrain from accepting information unquestioningly

>  As History emphasises respect for evidence and diverse perspectives, students of History learn to be more tolerant of diverse and conflicting opinions. History also develops students’ empathy for the people around them by examining how different experiences, cultural beliefs and worldviews have shaped the actions of individuals and groups. This puts them in good stead to work with people from diverse backgrounds

More exposure and practice now = less guesswork and panic during exams

Recommendations & Feedback From Students Who Succeeded In History

Reviews of benefits from hiring experienced History tuition teachers from Tutors Singapore

My sister took Geography, and she likes the subject. I guess I wanted to be different, so I chose History. There is a lot of analysis of historical information, and memorization of what happened before what else occurred. I have problems with some chapters - just too difficult to remember. Mr Koh has a Master's in History, and he is just great with helping me remember and analyze facts.

Joshua
Consistent A
If I had a choice, I would not take History or Geography. Maybe Literature would be better. But, it is too late now. I desperately needed a good grade, so that I can get into junior college. Mr Ng put in a lot of effort so that I could answer the difficult questions correctly.

Ban Huey
B then consistent A
I used to think that I would like History, until I scored a C. I never thought I would do so badly. My other subjects are B's and A's, so my study skills can't be that bad. Ms Woon teaches History at a good tuition centre. She is friendly and understands what students are going through. She taught me very good exams skills.

Meng Hwee
C to A
I want to major in Political Science, History or Sociology at NUS. I needed a strong A for History at A Levels. So much information that was difficult to process and remember and then apply. Ms Magdalene is a former MOE teacher, and helped me reduce the (many) moments of panic.

Benefits of Engaging a Reliable History Tuition Teacher

Just when you have finished preparing for one quiz, there is another coming up in 2 weeks’ time. Every day, new homework assignments and projects are added to a never-ending to-do list. 

You can keep up, but just barely. This is stressful, especially when you dread the day when you cannot finish your homework in time because you don’t have the answers to the questions that your teachers asked.

Worse, your classmates – who are in your class because you had previously been achieving similar grades to theirs – are able to get the right answers and score higher marks. Very discouraging.

Good History tuition teachers will give you 1 to 1 attention, so that you can ask them how to solve those difficult homework and exam problems. 

Tutors Singapore represents only qualified tuition teachers who already have a Bachelor’s, or are about to get one. Or they might have a Master’s or PhD in the subject that they are teaching you. 

As they are experienced in teaching students in your academic level, they can easily and clearly explain to you what you need to know and do, so that you can urgently gain much higher marks.

Your History private tutors would also have materials to share with you – whether they are exam papers or homework assignments from other schools. Or, they would have good recommendations for you to buy workbooks that are most suitable for you to practice on, in order to gain mastery of the tricky concepts.

With History home tuition, you can get instant clarification in concepts that are difficult to understand. 

You can also receive customised lesson plans tailored to suit your unique learning style and understanding of the different History topics, so that you may better absorb the content and understand the concepts.

Your History tuition teachers from Tutors Singapore are very familiar with the latest MOE syllabus and newest exam requirements. They have been teaching for between 2 to over 30 years and can identify the areas that you should focus on, according to your grade targets and pace of learning.

The current History syllabus can have content that is challenging for many students. Our History tuition teachers are experienced in teaching students at your academic level. They are familiar with the common misconceptions and the dangerous mistakes made by History students.

Double-checking your answers is useful only if you know how to create and put together the answers that the MOE really wants you to give.

Learn how to accurately analyze the questions, so that you can arrive at the answers that give you maximum marks.

Professional History tutors are able to show you how History concepts are applied when answering tricky exam questions.

You lost interest and became frustrated only because much of the syllabus did not make sense. 

Once there is clarity and you are able to perform the simple and then the advanced tasks, your sense of achievement will lead you to better grades and even stronger mastery of History.

Students can be overwhelmed with having to maintain a healthy and balanced personal and academic life. 

While it is beneficial to spend time developing leadership and team-building skills during co-curricular activities as well as having a good social life after school hours, this would also mean that students may have limited time to study. 

Hiring a competent and professional History tuition teacher can help them to efficiently make use of their time when studying, so that they can holistically do even better in both their personal and academic lives.

Many History students fear speaking up and asking questions during lessons because they worry about being laughed at in class. 

History 1 to 1 home tuition teachers will help students to have a better understanding of their lessons in school. Their home tuition teacher will patiently and clearly explain the difficult concepts to them.

Effective History tuition gives them the confidence of answering tricky questions when faced with unexpectedly challenging problems during school and national exams.

Our qualified History tuition teachers are experienced, and have thorough understanding of the common problems faced by History students. 

They will be able to deconstruct complex History topics into simpler concepts, and customize learning materials to improve students’ understanding of these topics. 

Increase your ability to give the RIGHT answers that your school exams and national exams require of you. 

Engage the most competent and reliable History tuition teachers, to help you succeed.
