Junior College Tuition
Preparing JC students for real world challenges
The JC tuition classes feature different subjects, like Economics, General Paper and History. In general, the ability to think, reflect, and write is of paramount importance for students to excel at the examinations. The lessons will cover the development of writing techniques to improve the students’ expression of points progressively.
Throughout the JC tuition classes, students are guided by the tutors to explore abstract concepts, issues and topics to strengthen their knowledge comprehension. We also provide students with the opportunities to refine their thinking and answering skills via active class participation.
For students taking H1 Economics (8823), the tuition pinpoints the cultivation of proficient case study answering skills, such as trend analysis, factor comparison and discussion of economic impacts. These skills are to be applied in the context of economics issues discussed in the given extracts and data.
As for students who are taking H2 Economics (9757), the lessons will cover both the essay writing and case study answering techniques, which are crucial factors for the attainment of academic success at the examinations. Students will undergo topical re-teaching and knowledge application during class practices.
The A Level General Paper (8807) examination will assess a student’s ability to reflect on real world issues, like the social and economic impacts of technological advancement, and express arguments in cogent and clear ways. Students will engage in discussions with the tutors to apply their knowledge to exam questions.
For students taking either H1 History (8821) or H2 History (9752), the lessons will impart them with the skills to analyze unseen historical text and extract out essential ideas to interpret the information critically. Knowledge application is carried out through essay writing and source based case study questions.
Nurturing inquisitive learners
The secondary tuition programmes, like Economics and English, will teach students to process information effectively by using proven study methods. The lessons feature class activities that broaden the students’ knowledge of what they have learnt at school and demonstrate the applicability of information to exam-type questions. Also, references to industrial applications in various professions and real world examples will prove useful in bridging the gap between ‘textbook-based’ knowledge and actual uses.
The O Level English (1128) tuition will improve the student’s ability to process information from various types of visual and written text and express ideas in clear and appropriate styles of writing. Students will learn how to tackle different question types, like situational writing, visual text comprehension and continuous writing.
The GCE O Level Economics (2281/2286) or IGCSE Economics (0455) tuition programmes will help students in Singapore and international schools to prepare for the examinations. The lessons feature topical enrichment and class practices for MCQs, Data Response Questions (DRQs) and Essay Questions.
Gearing up for the exams
When the examinations are just around the corner, students should adjust their pace and method of learning to be prepared adequately. For school-based common tests and year-end examinations (such as the JC1 Promotional and JC2 A Level exams), they are held after the week- or month-long school holidays.
As such, we strongly advise students to make full use of their time to correct their errors, revise concepts, and practise questions extensively. Our intensive revision programmes will address the key concerns of students and make their learning more productive, so that they have time to revise other subjects as well.
