What can I expect from H2 History tuition?
1. Content Mastery
This first component has to do with what is being tested in the final exam. Naturally, we will spend some time with understanding clearly the H2 History syllabus. We will start by going through each part of the syllabus document, so that there is absolute clarity on what is being tested at the A-Levels (and what cannot be tested).
The next portion of the content mastery is the H2 History notes. As expected, a complete and comprehensive set of notes will be provided for students. We will go through each topic thoroughly and make sure that students become very familiar with the content that they are supposed to study for the A-Levels. At the same time, we will make studying history content as interesting, insightful and captivating as possible.
The second component is mnemonics. This subject is extremely demanding in terms of content – there is a significant amount of memorisation that needs to be completed within a short amount of time. As such, we will be focusing on making revisions concise, and making sure that appropriate mind maps and cheat sheets are made. Students can expect to receive cheat sheets that will help them link the important dates together.
3. Intensive Timed Practice
We will do essay-writing and source-based case studies to enable students to develop a strong writing ability which will help them score distinction in both history papers. This will be done in a timed practice so that students learn the important skill of time management whilst being able to write a top quality essay within the limited time frame. Specifically, we will go through how to analyse questions and what examiners are looking for. We will go through how to write paragraphs convincingly, write strong introductions and how to end essay on a very high note. During the tuition sessions, students will have the opportunity to tackle various questions, including source-based case studies. To get a glimpse of what to expect, you can check out this example of a Cold War source-based question.
4. Marking of Case Studies and Essays
The case studies and essays will always be marked. This will enable students to be self-reflective about their mistakes. It will also allow them to understand more clearly the various bands and what they need to incorporate in each of their essays to consistently achieve the highest possible marks. To help students gauge their progress and refine their writing skills, Mr. Loo ensures that all case studies and essays are meticulously marked. Here is an example of an ASEAN source-based question along with a model answer that can serve as a valuable reference.
5. Exam Tips
Students will be able to learn key exam strategies pertaining to H2 History. They will learn how to break down all the content so that it becomes much easier to learn. They will be taught what to prioritize and what to focus on in order to ace their history exam.
6. Concise H2 History Notes
To resolve the issue of lengthy and over-elaborate history notes that is overwhelming for students, learning resources which are concise and easily digestible will be provided so that students can learn more effectively and save crucial time.
7. Clarifications of doubts
Last but not least, these sessions also provide a safe environment for students to ask any questions that they may have pertaining to H2 History. This will help students recall prior knowledge, promote comprehension as well as build their critical-thinking skills.

We recommend students to enrol in the program as early as possible; the earlier, the more time you will have to familiarize with the history content and sharpen your skills.

Is it possible to join your classes if I’m doing H2 History A-Levels as a private candidate?
