Specially For Upper Secondary Students…

Discover How Your Child Can ACE His/Her Geography and Social Studies Paper And Pull Up The Overall Humanities Grade In Our Geography and Social Studies June 2019 Intensive Revision Course

Conducted by a highly-qualified and experienced Social Studies teacher, Mr Alvin Tan, this intensive course will allow your child to focus on the specific module he/she needs to score As in Geography and Social Studies. 

“The teacher’s explanation of the abstract concepts during the SS intensive course has helped me a lot. I used to be unsure of how to write and phrase my answers but she has helped me with the writing structure and thinking process.”

Elizabeth Ng, Sec 4, PLMGS

Is your child able to fully comprehend the scope of the Geography and Social Studies syllabus?

Is your child confident in giving higher level answers and scoring the maximum marks for his/her source based questions in the exams?

Does your child have real world examples at your fingertips that he/she can use to support his/her points in the structured response questions?

If your answer is ‘no’ to any of the above questions, Brain Matter is holding a series of Intensive Revision Modules in June that are designed to bring you up to speed in the shortest amount of time.
