Efficient Social Studies Tutor

I make my students understand that Social Studies is important because this is the subject that teaches the history of the world and the history of a nation. In an age where to study is seen as “old school,” the subject plays a vital and crucial role in the civic, social and intellectual development of the individual student.

Prepclass Tutor Since: September 2015

My name is Sabina, I am a graduate of Adult Education from the University of Benin. I have been teaching Civics Education and Social Studies for two years now.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” (Benjamin Franklin)

My teaching style is based around this motto. My sessions are as interactive as possible, explaining complex ideas in inspiring and interesting ways, making it simple to understand. I believe in setting a good base on which to build upon and then tackling exam questions and focusing on exam technique. Nothing is easy and I do expect the child to work hard in order to understand certain aspects, at the same time I am not stern.

Something I certainly found extremely confidence-building was learning beyond the restrictions of the course guide so that I walked into the exam hall relaxed, knowing that I had excess knowledge, and that the examiners could throw any question at me. It will also help the child’s understanding if they do intend to carry on the subject.

Of course I would not pile on too much information if the child does feel he/she is struggling, and would work at a pace they feel is comfortable.

Most important thing though, above all else, is to have fun and enjoy what you are learning, and I feel I can provide this.
