Experienced History tutor to help with your school projects and exams
Is History Important?
History is full or real drama, action, and emotions. It is a real-life account of someone who died for love, or about an ambitious person who wanted to dominate the world.
Is History Relevant?
We live in a time of rapid change. A time of progress, high tech gadgets.
We prefer to define ourselves in terms of where we are going, not where we came from.
Previous generations of Singaporeans lived in times so different from our own that they are not capable of understanding much of what is going on now.
Our society is so much smarter now than it was even five or ten years ago. Every two years, we must change our phones, and every 4 years, we need new computers. We feel that anything from the past is outdated and not relevant.
Therefore, the past – even the relatively recent past – in the minds of most of us is covered by mists. It is there, but who cares? And why urge students to study even more history than they are required to?
An experienced History tutor can help you find the answers.
When Did Human History Begin?
It happens now.
History begins now, at this very moment.
What happened a second ago is already history. History is a cumulation of the many events that created us.
A simple form of finding our history is for example to analyze our family tree – tracing our two parents, four grandparents, and their grandparents before them.
We can then begin to understand more about ourselves. By knowing how they lived, why they did what they did, we understand our roots that brought us to the present. The past gives the present its value.
History, Throughout History
Knowledge of historical facts has been used as a screening device in many societies, from China to the United States, and the habit is still with us to some extent.
A committed History tutor will help you navigate through the important information that you need to remember and understand.
Since centuries ago, societies believed that knowledge of certain historical facts helped distinguish the educated from the uneducated.
Even now, a person who is knowledgeable is deemed superior, and is seen to be a better candidate for law school or even a business promotion.
Maybe History Is Important?
The single most important reason to study History is that History teaches us to think.
Whether it is history of Asia, Europe, America, languages, the military, religion, or the arts – History enables us to think about the greatest question that humanity has ever asked: WHY?
Communities speak languages that we inherited from the past. Old English is a West Germanic language that was brought to Britain between the fifth to seventh centuries by invaders from Germany and the Netherlands.
Fast forward one thousand years later, the Early Modern English used by Shakespeare (in the 1500’s) had influences from the Latin, Ancient Greek and French languages.
We now live in societies with complex cultures, traditions and religions that have not been created at the spur of the moment.
We use technologies that we did not ourselves create or invent.
Biologically, we are each born with a unique variant of an inherited genetic template known as the genome, which has evolved during the entire journey of the human species.
Studying History allows us to look at our own reflection.
History, As A Career
The study of History helps create good businesspeople, professionals, and political leaders.
Most people who study History do not become professional historians.
Students who did well in their history classes find that the information is directly relevant to fields like law, business and public administration.
Professional historians teach at universities, or work in museums. They also do historical research for businesses or statutory boards.
Currently, the History curriculum aims at being more interactive and fun for the student. The objective is to increase interest in History, and how to apply the core principles in our daily lives.
Can My History Improve?
In school, you raise your hand but the teacher is busy. He is attending to three other students who had put up their hand just before you. The bell rings and class is over. You still don’t understand how to do the homework, and there’s SA next week.
Hiring an experienced History tutor from Best Tutor will help you:
- Select and deploy historical knowledge appropriately, and communicate historical knowledge and understanding in a clear and effective manner
- Asses and establish the significance of individuals, ideas, events, forces and developments on societies
- Broaden your perspectives through a study of the interplay between power politics and the agency of diverse actors, the clash of opposing ideologies, and the tensions between national and international interests as various actors sought to shape the international order
- Demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the key characteristics of the periods studied – this includes the social, economic, cultural and political contexts of the societies studied and the experiences of the people who lived in these societies at that point in time
- Analyze and evaluate the causes and consequences of historical events and situations whilst avoiding excessively abstract generalisations
You need to demonstrate mastery of these (and more), in order to do well in the major national exams administered by the Ministry of Education.

Best Tutor has developed the most effective methods of matching qualified experienced tutors to help students perform better at exams. Every student has different learning needs. Some students learn by cramming everything in a short period of time, hours before major exams. Others need constant reinforcing in order to understand the content. Best Tutor knows how to find committed tutors who can identify the causes for lower than expected grades, and tailor the lessons to suit the learning needs of each student.
Catch The Problem Early
The core learning methodology of the Singapore education system is that each skillset is the foundation for future lessons, much like Lego bricks being carefully situated next to the other.
Build a strong foundation for your child. Remedial tutoring can start at any age, but catching the problem early is best.
Hire A Tutor
Bring in a tutor because you know that when your child stays “I don’t care”, he really means “I am too scared to care because then I might fail”.
If you are a student whose parents and teachers are often complaining that you are not putting in enough effort into your work, hiring a home tutor will help you know if your study methods and exam skills are correct.
Making the decision to hire a private tutor AND finding the right one can make all the difference in helping your child get his education back on track.
