As part of our Secondary History tuition, we ensure the course content is up-to-date and in accordance with the O Level syllabus.

We believe that every student is unique, and so should their learning path. Our tutors focus on individual students, understand their strengths and weaknesses, and adapt the teaching methods accordingly. This personalised approach paves the way for successful outcomes in the O Level History paper.

G1, G2 & G3 History Tution from 2024

In 2024, Singapore's education system will see a transformative shift with the introduction of Full Subject-Based Banding (FSBB). At Ilum Education, we're excited about this shift and are well-prepared to offer specialised history tuition to support your child's academic journey in the new FSBB History curriculum.

Under the FSBB, History will be offered as a Humanities Exposure Module (HEM) or an elective subject. Upon reaching Secondary Two, students will be able to select history as either a HEM or as one of the electives within G1, G2 or G3 level Humanities.

  • G1 Humanities: This level will comprise Social Studies and one Humanities Exposure Module (HEM) in Geography, History, or Literature in English.
  • G2/3 Humanities: Students at this level will continue with Social Studies and have the flexibility to choose one elective from Geography, History, Literature in English, or Literature in Mother Tongue Languages (offered at G3 only).

Ilum Education understands the importance of these educational changes. We have meticulously adapted our teaching curriculum to align with the new FSBB History syllabus for Singapore schools. Our experienced tutors are well-versed in the nuances of G1, G2, and G3 levels of History, ensuring that your child receives targeted tuition and guidance.
