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.

Aspire. Aim. Achieve.

Having picked up H2 History as a private candidate without prior knowledge or experience, Justin was extremely accommodative and attentive to my needs and queries. Moreover, his teaching was meticulous and detailed which accelerated my writing skills not only for this subject but also others.

Prior to joining the JC History Tuition, I found it difficult to navigate the H2 History syllabus, due to its vast content and complex concepts The program provided me with resources that enabled me to understand and internalize content easily. Furthermore, frequent practice sessions and generous support of the tutor helped me to develop my study and writing skills. Over time, my history grade improved from an S to an A. I highly recommend this tuition as I have obtained vital skills from it to perform at the A level examinations and beyond.

Despite attending only 3 months’ worth of lessons (J2 final A Level revision), my grades soared from an ‘E’ to an ‘A’. Justin is a knowledgeable and patient teacher with effective teaching methods. He focuses on ensuring that his students are able to interpret and answer questions accurately. A dedicated teacher, Justin goes the extra mile by planning optional timed practices, meticulously marking extra work and arranging private consult sessions to provide individual feedback. In all, I strongly recommend students who are struggling with history to attend his classes.

I benefited a lot from the structured notes history tuition provided, and the frequent timed trials conducted. Furthermore, I learnt specific ways to approach history essays and SBQ instead of being constantly intimidated by the sheer amount of information school notes provide. Justin is also an extremely patient and considerate teacher who always makes sure that we understand difficult concepts, and clarify doubts tirelessly. Since I began tuition in JC1, my grades have improved from C at promos to A for A Levels.

I am writing to express my sincere thank to you for guiding my daughter to ace history. Thank you for building her confidence and giving her the motivation to push on during her preparation for A level. She began to enjoy studying history after attending your lessons and I think that was a crucial factor which enabled her to excel. We are very grateful to you. Thank you for being such a wonderful tutor!

H1 History was always a struggle for me in JC. However, after joining Mr Justin’s History Tuition just before my JC2 mid-year exams, I noticed a gradual improvement in my history grades. Mr Justin exposed me to many question types for the essay component and equipped me with a myriad of technical vocabulary that enabled me to articulate my ideas adequately. He also encouraged me to send online essays, which he would promptly mark with meticulous care. Due to his congenial nature, approaching him for consults to clarify any doubts was easy.

Justin’s notes were extremely effective in providing an overview of the various chapters, and his insights regarding possible essay questions were essential in aiding in the A level preparation period. He is extremely patient and has been a hardworking tutor, working around the clock to ensure my work is reviewed in time. He encourages and facilitates active discussions in class, and through such works have allowed us to clarify and share ideas. Without him I wouldn’t have achieved the ‘A’ in H2 History.

Justin has helped me greatly through H2 A’ level History. He provided notes that were thorough and went through many essays to help me understand how to write a coherent history essay. He was very patient and under his guidance, I was able to improve greatly from the end of J1 to J2. Thank you very much, Justin!

Having been under Justin’s tutelage, I have found that his teaching methods are highly effective. This is exemplified by how the short amount of time I spent with him turned my grades from U’s to a B during the A levels. Justin’s teaching methods are straightforward and intensive. And during the tuition sessions he would pose thought provoking questions that force students to be more analytical in their approach towards the subject.

Throughout my entire academic life thus far, I have rarely come across a teacher that genuinely cares about his students well-being and their understanding of the subject. But Justin has proven himself to be just as such. He teaching methods are practical and methodical. And he inspires to bring out the best in his students.

I am glad that I have chosen JCHistoryTuition.com.sg while pursuing history. Despite, not having a background in history but Justin has definitely equipped me with the necessary skills to score in the A levels. Justin focuses on developing strategic techniques essential to perform in major examinations. For instance, the crafting of standardized paragraphs and essay outlines aims to minimize the wastage of time and provides a structure to the essays which gives me an edge over the others; given that my essay is clear and to the point.

All in all, JCHistoryTuition.com.sg is an excellent place that prepares its students for exams through its rigorous system as well as its friendly and competent tutor, Justin.
