Proven Methods To Scoring Well For Each Component Of Social Studies

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SOCIAL STUDIES TUTOR

Important Qualities to Look For In A Good Social Studies Tuition Teacher

  • Our Social Studies tuition teachers range from current & former MOE teachers to undergraduate & graduated tutors (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) majoring in Political Science, Sociology, Economics, Geography or History. 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition session, Tutors Singapore will recommend only tutors who have relevant degrees (Bachelor’s, Master’s, PhD) in the subjects they teach. Each Social Studies 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 Social Studies content – and importantly – the exam requirements, answer formats, and marking schemes
  • It is crucial that the Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies when they took their O Levels, and they would have at least a Bachelor’s in Sociology, Economics, Political Science, Geography or History. This means that their professional experience in Social Studies can help you achieve better grades, whether you are in Secondary 3 or taking your O Levels. 
  • When recommending Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition teachers have between 2 to 30+ years of experience in teaching students who are often from different schools. These Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition teachers can identify their students’ root causes of learning challenges, within the first lessons. These Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies Students In Singapore

Challenges Faced By POA Students in Singapore

>  Students perceive Issue Investigation as having overwhelming scope and depth. Teachers and students feel that there is lack of time because of the limited number of lesson hours allocated to Social Studies each term week (usually around 3 periods of around 30 minutes each).

>  Teachers often try to cover curricular content as quickly as possible, in order to reserve enough time for revision and exam skills drilling. Consequently, the extensive investigative cycle required of Issue Investigation is often found to be extremely time-consuming.

>  Deficits of certain dispositions and skills among students also hinder the implementation of Issue Investigation. Some teachers have found that students’ passive learning tendencies – not “wanting to think” and unwillingness to read and conduct their own research – are major obstacles.

>  Students’ English language proficiency as well as IT literacy also are areas of concern, as these skills are often indispensable at different stages of the inquiry process of investigative learning – which includes formulating questions, gathering data, and presenting findings.

>  Lack of students’ interest in understanding the interconnectedness of Singapore and the world we live in. They are reluctant to learn and appreciate the complexities of the human experience, or to explore the complex tensions that characterise issues happening around the world and in Singapore. 

>  Upper Secondary Social Studies focuses on the explicit teaching of thinking skills to assess and manage real-life information in meaningful ways. It also aims to build a deep sense of rootedness to the nation. The subject is interdisciplinary in nature, combining subjects such as Geography, History, Sociology, Political Science and Economics.

>  Hesitance to explore contemporary and global issues related to governance, students’ roles as citizens, living in a diverse society and globalisation. These are issues that affect the lives of our children as young citizens, and they prepare them for the responsibilities they need to exercise judiciously as adults in future. Social Studies encourages students to engage in policy issues instead of just relying on the government to achieve desired outcomes.

Feedback From Students Who Mastered Social Studies

Reviews of benefits from hiring experienced Social Studies tuition teachers from Tutors Singapore

I am planning to do engineering at either NUS or NTU, because I am good at Chemistry and Physics. The type of analytical skills that I need to have in order to do well in Social Studies don't seem to be similar to how I analyze or solve science problems. Ms Koh is a current MOE teacher and she teaches me how to answer correctly, as well as think through the questions and possible answers more effectively.

Fung Seng
B to consistent A
I am planning to take up Nursing when I go to poly. It is good for me to have more knowledge of how the world works, but my SS grades were dragging my overall scores down. Ms Jovine teaches at a good tuition centre, and she gives me many helpful tips of how to tackle the difficult questions. She also tells me what to do if (when?) I come across questions that I think I will not be able to answer and score well in.

Verene
C to B
My other subjects are in the B or A range. I need to score better for SS because I will be taking General Paper when I get to junior college. I heard that having a strong foundation in Social Studies would help when I take GP, and that GP is very difficult to score high marks in. Mr Ang is a tuition teacher for both GP and SS, and he is really good at analyzing world events, as well as issues that impact Singapore. He teaches me how to apply this knowledge to SS questions.

Yvonne
Consistent A
My parents had a shock when I scored a C, because I have always liked to read the news and developments around the world. I think it is my answering techniques that are the problem. Mr Goh looked at my past answers, and helped me modify and correct how I answer. This made a huge difference in how I analyze, as well as answer the questions.

Benefits of Engaging a Reliable Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies 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 Social Studies topics, so that you may better absorb the content and understand the concepts.

Your Social Studies 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 Social Studies syllabus can have content that is challenging for many students. Our Social Studies tuition teachers are experienced in teaching students at your academic level. They are familiar with the common misconceptions and the dangerous mistakes made by Social Studies 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 Social Studies tutors are able to show you how Social Studies 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 Social Studies.

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

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

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

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

They will be able to deconstruct complex Social Studies 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 Social Studies tuition teachers, to help you succeed.
