Humanities Tuition

All 7 new texts for 2016 and 2017 onwards are now taught! Only place in SG that can provide this service for students!

I believe in giving more than my best to my students and have now completed reading all the new texts! Yes all seven of them!  What is more I am giving  unprecedented discounts to those who will be calling me for the first time for Lit and Humanities tuition for O- and N-level exams. The offer lasts till end of April. Hurry as places are limited! For a sample of the areas covered, I have chosen Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw. In my sessions on the book, the areas covered are as follows:

  1. key insights on George Bernard Shaw, the playwright, activists and self-anointed saviour of society
  2. a brief outline of his colourful and eventful life, focusing on his creed and the various causes he championed and supported.
  3. a close insightful study of issues raised in the play such as the social divide, class conflict, transformation, the status of women, gender issues, etc
  4. theme tracking
  5. insightful and profound comments and interpretations of the play, plot, characterisation, themes and issues
  6. language and wordplay in the text and many others ( some of which are my trade secrets)

Last but not least I role-model a lot to show them how to analyse questions, and answer them. I do impart certain secret skills to give them that edge in the exams and of course for most of my students,  I teach them sentence skills and essay organisation as well because in the final analysis, Lit students need to write very well.

Literature and Humanities tuition – expanding the titles and scope

lithistorygeogpicIn the last two years as well as 2016, twenty new titles will be added to the list of texts I am teaching for Literature. They include “A Christmas Carol”, “Emily of Emerald Hill”, “Wonder”, “Hamlet”, “I’m the King of the Castle”, “Boom”, ” The Tempest”, “24 Favourite One Act Plays”, “A Man for All Seasons”,  ”An Enemy of the People”, etc.

Many students are getting help in Geography, History and Social Studies from me. Even for IP Geography and History, schools are refreshing the syllabuses regularly.

Reading fees and subject registration fees

Sometimes reading fees are charged for new texts and a small subject registration fees are charged per subject every semester. Title fees per text is also charged in lieu of new texts if the texts has been previously taught by me. All these fees are non-refundable regardless of whether the sessions are terminated by the tutor or the parent.

Importance of consistency and continuity in tuition sessions

Having the same teacher/tutor is important. Regular changes of teachers and tutors are disconcerting because of the disruptive effects on the sessions and hence on the students. It takes time to build up rapport and for the tutor or teacher to earn the trust and confidence of the students, so having a succession of different tutors is a no-no for students. It also takes time for the teacher to help the students and to see results of that help.

In conclusion, the world does not contain infinite resources and as long as mankind continue to behave irresponsibly, the doomsday preppers are going to be proven right. Geography teaches us to be aware and perceptive of our fragile planet and linkages between the human and physical environment, and armed with these knowledge and insights, all of us should be imbued with a sense of responsibility for protecting our environment and planet.
