Benefits of Engaging Social Studies Home Tuition

Make Effective Use of Time Outside School

It can be very challenging for students to lead lives that balance study with leisure. Both aspects are important for one to lead a healthy and satisfying life. With Social Studies tuition, one can receive help in areas that they are academically weak in, and make productive use of time spent studying. This supports them in maintaining a balanced lifestyle.

1-1 Support Specially Catered for the Student

In schools, teachers face the challenge of delivering content in the way that is effective for most students, and there is little time available for attention to specific students, even if they are lagging behind. With 1-1 Social Studies tuition, the tutor can devote his/her full attention to the student, and tailor lessons to meet the student’s needs. This means that the tutor is able to target areas that are weak for the specific student during tuition lessons. Learning is more effective, and can be done at a comfortable pace.

Guidance When Gearing Up for the Examinations

Tutors have experience and know what the examination syllabus and format is like. They also know the common errors and areas of weak techniques that students have when answering questions. With their support through Social Studies tuition, transfer of this knowledge may occur. Students can also have misconceptions pointed out and get an additional source of feedback before the examinations, so they do not repeat past mistakes.

Access to Additional Resources for Social Studies

Social Studies tutors accumulate a wealth of resources as they teach various students. Some also create their own materials, like summary notes and mind maps. With Social Studies tuition, students get access to these resources to supplement those provided by the school, and thus gain exposure to an even larger variety of questions for practice and learning materials. This ensures they are well-equipped for the examinations.

Increased Confidence in Academic Skills

With support from the tutor, students can feel better prepared for lessons and for the examinations. This will help enhance their self-confidence as they do not feel like they are lagging behind as much, and even during times where they find themselves lost in lessons, they can feel assured that they are able to clarify these things during the Social Studies tuition lessons.

Testimonials About Our Social Studies Home Tuition

 

 

MindFlex was very efficient in getting back to me with a list of several suitable tutors that I could pick for, and within a week I found the tutor that matched my criteria. Mr Sim was highly experienced in teaching Social Studies tuition, and also in helping me think further and consider different perspectives. Under his tutelage, I made a lot of improvements for my N Levels, and plan to continue until I finish my O Levels as well.

Mr Joseph Tan, Secondary 4NA Elective Social Studies Student
(C6 to A2) 

I was very impressed with MindFlex’s efficient service in searching for a tutor and getting back to me within a day. I decided to go with Ms Sandra as she had the most experience and used to teach the subject in school. With her help, my daughter improved leaps and bounds, and I was really surprised at how much better she became. All credits go to Ms Sandra! And I would highly recommend MindFlex to others.

Mrs Lok Siew Siew, Mother of Secondary 4E Elective Social Studies Student
(C5 to A1) 

Jared, my tutor, made Social Studies come to life and we used case studies from the recent news in our lessons. This made the topics come to life even more, and gave me the opportunity to practice skills as well as become aware of real life things. Thanks MindFlex for helping me to get in contact with Jared.

Mr Vignesh, Secondary 3 Elective Social Studies Student
(D7 to B3)

 

MindFlex put me in contact with Mdm Salma. She really drilled and trained me in the skills for writing essays and answering source-based questions. Even though sometimes I dreaded having tuition, I have to admit that she was very effective and helped me improve a lot. Thanks Mdm Salma!

Mr Rahim, Secondary 4E Elective Social Studies Student
(B4 to A1)

 

Choosing The Right Social Studies Home Tutor

Important Qualities to Look For In A Social Studies Tutor 

 

Teaching Skills Apart from Simply Answering Questions
  • Social Studies is a subject requiring a set of unique skills like critical and reflective thinking skills, analysing issues from different views, inferring from sources, and so on. The tutor you engage for Social Studies Tuition should be able to train students in these skills, not solely question answering skills and techniques.

  • At MindFlex, with our large pool of tutors to choose from, you can find a tutor that is skilled in teaching the skills you want to develop for Social Studies. You may check with the tutors you are considering, to ensure that they are able to teach those skills. Assess if the experience listed in tutors’ profiles reflect their ability to teach at the level you required.

Commitment Towards Teaching
  • Regardless of the subject and level the tutor is teaching, a trait to consistently look out for is whether the tutor is dedicated to teaching their students. Be sure to communicate your expectations clearly with the tutor, and confirm that the tutor can commit to the frequency and timing of lessons you require for Social Studies tuition in the long-term.

  • At MindFlex, we recognise the challenges of finding a tutor that suits your needs. In order to help you or your child get the ideal tutor, we help by facilitating communication to ensure a common understanding and expectations between you and the tutor.

Experience in Teaching Social Studies
  • There are different types of tutors you may choose. MOE & NIE trained teachers who were trained in teaching Social Studies will be familiar with the Social Studies pedagogy, and are well-equipped with skills in teaching because of their experience in MOE schools. While full-time and part-time tutors do not have such qualifications and professional experience, they are also capable of teaching with their years of experience giving Social Studies Tuition, and previously having excelled in the subject in schools. These tutors are also great options to consider, and you can pick the type of tutor you think has the experience required. 

  • MindFlex only shortlists tutors that have experience teaching Social Studies, and with exemplary results when studying the subject. Based on their profiles, you can assess which tutor has the experience level you think will meet your needs.

Familiarity With the Most Recent Syllabus
  • MOE refreshes its syllabus every few years, hence it is key that the tutor you select knows about any changes. This will help to ensure that valuable tuition time is not wasted on irrelevant information, and lessons are most effective in producing improvements. Tuition time should be spent only on things covered in the examinations, and the lessons should be targeted towards answering the types of questions asked in the examinations. 

  • In tutors’ profiles that Mindflex shortlists, we highlight information on their teaching experience. Be sure to check that the tutors you are considering are currently teaching, or have recent experience teaching students in the same subject, and at the same level. This will help to give you an indication of the tutor’s familiarity with the most updated syllabus.

  • More information about the Syllabus can be found at these links: O Level Social Studies, N Level Social Studies

Availability of Testimonials
  • Beyond the on-paper qualifications and teaching experiences listed, many also want to know about the teaching and learning experience that goes on during Social Studies tuition. A quick look at the tutor’s testimonials will give you a good idea on this. An experienced tutor will be able to provide strong testimonials as evidence of his/her capability as a tutor and effectiveness in teaching and producing results. From these testimonials, you can also find out more information such as the tutor’s personality, relationships with students and parents, and their teaching style.

  • At MindFlex, we understand the concerns you have on whether a tutor is safe to engage. To help streamline the selection process, we indicate if tutors are able to provide testimonials from previous students and parents, and also highlight tutors that have received good feedback from our past clients. With this information, you can be rest assured on the quality of teaching that the tutor can provide, and make a more informed decision.

Ability to Provide Additional Resources
  • Experienced Social Studies Tutors accumulate a pool of resources over the years as they teach. These resources include things like notes, mind maps, summaries of content, and practice questions.Tutors that can provide such extra materials can give you greater exposure to different types of Social Studies questions, and supplement school resources that you have. This ensures your earning is further supported, and you are well-prepared for the examinations. 

  • At MindFlex, we highlight tutors that can provide additional materials. If this is something you want your tutor to be able to do, ensure you check in their profiles that they are able to.

Making Well-Informed Decisions

Importance of Getting Social Studies Tuition

  • Many find education in Singapore stressful, especially as they attempt to create a healthy balance between study and leisure. Both these aspects are important to everyone to have a fulfilling life. With Social Studies tuition, your child will be provided with greater support academically, reducing the struggles they have in this aspect of life.

  • Social Studies examinations require a range of skills, not simply question and answer responding techniques. Having an answer key to the questions is not enough. With Social Studies tuition, you are able to practice these additional skills and receive critique and feedback, to ensure you make improvements before critical examinations.

  • Skills learnt through Social Studies are useful later in life, such as understanding Singapore as a country. It provides a framework for analysing things that occur in Singapore society. Building a strong foundation in these skills from an early age helps you to be aware of how society works, and critically assess the things you see occurring around you.

  • Beyond the apparent academic value, Social Studies is a subject highly relevant to us today, as youth become more politically involved and curious on how things work in society. With the skills developed in Social Studies, one can better understand and analyse public policies, the political landscape, and Singapore in context of our globalised world.
