Overview


About H2 History Tutor:  After studying the syllabus document closely over the past few years, I offer an easy, clear and structured approach to History. Over the past two years, I have taught six students so far, of which three did not have English as their first language, and they have all achieved distinction for History at A Levels.  After graduating from Pioneer Junior College in 2017, which was the first batch of the new syllabus and scoring distinctions in all my H2 subjects, I am confident that my approach towards History will guarantee an A grade provided one works hard enough. 

About the approach adopted: Essays

Although the History Paper contains a mixture of source-based questions and essays, we will start by focusing intensively on the essay writing section, which constitutes 60% of the grade, because their limited scope can be prepared for easily and serves to form a strong foundation for the exam. Due to the nature of a history exam, the interpretation of the syllabus document by various schools make a big difference in the strength of material/ examples used. As such, I will ensure that my students are equipped with the best supporting materials to help them write the most convincing essays to impress the markers. In order to achieve this, I will prepare “Skeletons” for each topic, where a select material will be chosen and prepared in such a manner that makes memorizing much simpler. For every topic, carefully crafted and convincing essays will also be analysed in detail. At the same time, I will go through the subtle details in the syllabus document that markers look for, and teach them the key adjustments to make that would guarantee an A grade. Overall, in all seven different essay topics in the entire syllabus document, with enough dedication and hard work, every single one of them will be mastered at a top-level. In the process, one of my main goals is also to teach my students crucial linguistic and essay-writing skills which will follow them all the way to university. Source-Based Questions: Moreover, the approach to tackling case studies will also be covered. Although the scope for case studies is not as tight as that of essays, I will ensure that my students are able to write a convincing answer to source-based questions based on ingenuity and logic.   If you are interested, you may contact me at 86611993.
