Why Join our JC History Tuition?

3 reasons why our JC History Tuition will prepare you for A

Explore the interesting facets of A Level History, which comprises of two major areas: Shaping the International Order (Paper 1) and Making of Independent Southeast Asia (Paper 2 – For H2 students only). Within each Paper, you will be examining major historical issues from multiple viewpoints, by analysing the arguments put forth by historians. To understand the complexity of these issues, our JC History Tuition programme will shape you to think critically and express points persuasively. Read on to find out the lessons will benefit you either as a JC1 or JC2 student.

1. We nurture you to analyze historical issues critically

Our JC History Tuition programme imparts you with the essential skills to approach matters pertaining to A Level History effectively. By refining your astute sense of observation and personal reflection, you will develop a keen ability to perceive historical issues from diverse angles. You will engage in frequent class discussions with the tutor to gain insights on the significance of specific incidents and ideas that you may come across in your school notes and examination questions.

2. We guide you to express arguments clearly

As a Humanities subject, the expression of one’s thoughts and ideas is demonstrated in the form of writing in an extended form, be it for essay or the source-based case study question (SBQ). Therefore, we will guide you through the learning process to acquire the necessary skills, like organization of writing, outline setting and paragraph development. We will focus on two main areas to build up your writing proficiency: Essay Writing Skills and SBQ Answering Techniques

First, the skills of essay writing in the context of A Level History is refined through a firm grasp of historical issues and the application of knowledge to demonstrate precision in answering the relevant question requirements. For example, you may be required to assess the importance of a given factor in comparison to other factors that affect the main issue of discussion. Given this situation, we will show you how to acknowledge the causal relation of the given factor and prove whether it is more important or less important than the subsequent factors.

Second, SBQ answering techniques can be acquired through the use of past examination questions, which may be modified and re-organised to facilitate the assessment of specific competencies, like information extraction and implication derivation. Our JC History Tuition will deconstruct different sources to illustrate the applicability of our exam-friendly answering approaches to give you the competitive edge over your peers.

3. We are committed to prepare you for the challenges of the examinations

Learning does not stop once you step out of our classrooms. We believe in a continual process of education, in which students work towards their goals wholeheartedly and passionately. As such, our JC History Tuition programme offers post-lesson consultation and review to follow-up with your revision efforts.

Should you require further clarification on certain matters relating to A Level History or general study issues, do not hesitate to ask our tutors. We will be glad to address your queries. The intent to ask does not expose your weaknesses and shortcomings in an embarrassing way. Rather, it displays your intrinsic desire to improve oneself.

Also, we offer ‘Study & Practice’ sessions, which are FREE for students who have registered for our regular JC History Tuition programmes. The ‘Study & Practice’ programme is introduced to provide you with a conducive learning environment to attempt additional practice questions as you gear up for common tests and other examinations. Furthermore, during this programme, you can ask the tutors to clarify any doubts.
