To the caring parent
Dear Concerned Parent
You may have reached this website because you are worried about your child’s humanities scores as these scores are compulsory in the computation of your child’s points for Junior College and University entry.
Is your child disheartened with LOW scores for humanities?
Is your child making the best efforts but NOT getting results?
Is your child NOT having the discipline to self-study for the subject?
Discover key strategies to improve your child’s grades and to cultivate a love for studying humanities.
Why do parents and students trust us year after year?
Over the last 12 years, we have helped more than 1,000 students boost their grades up by 2-3 grade bands.
Let our caring and concerned teachers help your child achieve more.
Proven track record
For something as varied and subjective as Source Based Questions for Social Studies, is it possible to score A grades? The answer is a resounding YES! It can be done. In fact, ALL our students in the Combined Humanities class scored As in 2015 and based on past record, 75% of our students achieve As, beating the National Average of 28% distinction for Combined Humanities. Students who closely follow our tried and tested methodologies and effective answering techniques can surely do so much better.
Our tutors impart Critical Thinking skills, stimulate discussions and thought processes so that your child can think and assess ideas and concepts independently. Naturally your child will start to feel more confident when expressing his/her viewpoints in essays for English/General Paper, Economics, Literature, Social Studies or History.
The results simply follow naturally.
I am grateful for having joined Inspire and the vast improvement within a short timeframe of just 4 months!
