For Lower Secondary History Tuition, our teaching will shape your child to think systematically as we explore different historical issues and engage in class discussions to understand the significance of the related matters.
For Lower Secondary Geography Tuition, our lessons will equip your child with the knowledge and skills to investigate geographical issues and interpret the given data to make sound conclusions in an organized way.
Why Join our Lower Secondary Humanities Tuition
Although it may appear that the Lower Secondary Humanities Tuition cover unrelated subjects, such as the comparison made between English and History, our tutors believe that the teaching of these subjects is a complementary process. In particular, you will learn to synergise the skills of writing, such as idea expression, argument formation and general answer organization. In this section, you can find out more about the benefits of our programme.
Lower Secondary English Tuition
Recognise different formats and styles of writing
The study of English requires a firm grasp of diverse writing formats and styles, such as narrative and argumentative text types. Our English tuition will expose your child to different styles of expression and allow your child to apply the newfound knowledge to practice questions.
Communicate ideas clearly and confidently in written and spoken forms
Language proficiency is achieved through frequent application, seen in terms of active communication and writing. As such, our Lower Secondary English Tuition will engage your child to listen, speak, read and write to develop these essential skills in a conducive and encouraging learning environment.
Lower Secondary History Tuition
Comprehend the significance of historical issues
The study of History is done by examining historical issues from the 4 major themes, such as Tracing Singapore’s Origins and Life in Colonial Singapore. During the lessons, we engage your child to reflect on these topics and encourage opinion development to facilitate independent thinking.
Demonstrate proficiency in expressing historical knowledge coherently
We teach students to apply their newfound knowledge of History in the written form to facilitate exam preparation. With reference to the Historical Investigation (HI) segment stated in the syllabus, our lessons will promote reflective thinking as your child learns to seek information to comprehend the issues.
Lower Secondary Geography Tuition
Understand geographical issues and challenges
The process of learning Geography will be an enriching experience for your child as we cover the two main themes: Environment and Resources, as well as Urban Living. Lessons include conceptual explanation and example illustration to help your child understand the geographical challenges.
Interpret geographical data meticulously
Learn to conduct geographical inquiry as our lessons will equip your child with the skills of data extraction and analysis. We use example questions to demonstrate how such skills are applied and provide questions for your child to practise and internalise this important aspect of learning.
How We Teach for our Lower Secondary Humanities Tuition
In view of the above-mentioned benefits of our Lower Secondary Humanities Tuition, read on to find out how our class activities will fulfil the learning objectives set out by the requirements of SEAB.
Content Enrichment and Discussion
We enrich your child’s study of the humanities subjects by covering a broad range of content to become more familiar with the different topics. Topical teaching of content will be effective in organising your study of the subjects as we provide summary notes to emphasise on more pertinent aspects.
Knowledge Application and Practices
We orientate the process of knowledge acquisition towards the application to questions as it is important to asses your child’s performance and level of understanding. Therefore, our lessons feature practice segments after the content teaching to guide your child through the application components.
Exam Preparation and Post-Review
At the end of the day, exam-readiness is the most critical consideration of the study. Therefore, our Lower Secondary Humanities Tuition will conduct timed practices to simulate examination conditions as your child strives to demonstrate knowledge and skills competency.
In addition, we provide post-practice review sessions to provide feedback on the areas of improvement that your child should take into consideration. Progressive learning and monitoring are essential in ensuring that your child copes with the pace of study for these three subjects.
