Hurdles Faced by Combined Geography Students

Difficulties remembering Geography content

Geography is a subject with many technical terms and a high volume of content students must memorise. Some students may have difficulties remembering such a high amount of content and may require creative memorisation techniques such as remembering by association. Moreover, Geography students must memorise a mix of numerical and verbal content. 

Poor essay writing technique

A large part of any Humanities subject is being able to present one’s ideas in a coherent and concise manner. Students suffer from poor essay writing techniques such as rambling too much and going on other tangents which are irrelevant to the central thesis of the essay. Moreover, students may not know how to plan their essay well, resulting in a poor essay structure.

Inability to interpret scales, symbols, and distances

A key feature of Geography in secondary school is the requirement to interpret scales, symbols, and distances during the exam. Many students fail to interpret scales, symbols, and distances and this hinders them from using the content knowledge they have learned in school to answer the questions posed to them. Geography students must be familiar with important skills which are basic in the subject to be able to answer their exam questions.

Difficulty answering exam questions

Many secondary school Geography students find it difficult to answer exam questions as they are not able to interpret the question and use the content they have been taught at school to craft relevant answers. As such, students may lose precious time as they will feel confused and at the mercy of the exam paper under timed conditions if they are not familiar with exam questions.

The Importance of Engaging a Combined Geography Tutor

Helping students prepare for their examinations

A Geography tutor will help students prepare for their Geography exams. Answering exam questions requires experience with past year paper questions and the critical thinking skills necessary to adapt to new forms of questions. Students need to know what the exam questions are asking them for, instead of answering the questions they think they are being asked.

Guiding students through content for the exam

A good Geograhpy tutor will help guide their students through the exam content. Subjects in the Humanities are often content heavy and will favour students who are able to memorise the necessary content. As such, students may need creative ways to memorise the content for their exams and it is the responsibility of their tutors to help them through their exam content.

Improving students’ essay writing skills

Any subject in the Humanities will involve good essay writing skills. It goes without saying that students need to have good grammar, sentence structure, and vocabulary in their essays. More importantly, students need to be able to plan their essay well so that their arguments are clear to the examiner. The essay needs to be structured properly such that it is clear and concise.

Helping students learn according to their learning style

Different students have different learning styles. Some students learn better by visualising the concepts, some do better by listening to their teachers speak about the content, and others learn best by practicing doing the same questions. A good tutor will bring out the best in every student by tailoring their lessons to how the student learns best. Students must feel that they are able to learn well with the style of teaching the tutors have.

Good Qualities of a Combined Geography Tutor

Imparting the necessary skills to students

Subjects in the Humanities will require the necessary skills of inference, deduction, and analysis. It is important for students to be observant and interpret the question well so that they can draw on their content knowledge to answer the question. As such, a good Geography tutor should demonstrate to the student how to analyse the question so that they can do it independently.

Familiarity with Geography syllabus

Each examination system has a different syllabus with varying requirements. A Geography tutor must be familiar with the syllabus and what the student is going to need to master before sitting for their exams. As syllabi may be updated from time to time, the tutor must keep abreast of these changes so they do not contradict the information being taught to the student at school.

Good essay writing skills

Writing essays is a highly integral part of studying any Humanities subject. A good tutor will need to be proficient in writing essays as they need to convey their ideas to the examiner in a concise and coherent manner. It goes without saying that a good essay needs to have good grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structure. Moreover, a good essay should have a clear structure and each paragraph should make one point the student wants to put forward.

Dedication and commitment

A key feature a tutor must have is to be dedicated and committed to teaching. A good tutor should show up for all the slots he has agreed to take on time. If the tutor cannot make it for the class, he should give advance notice and make up the slot so the parent can feel reassured that the student’s learning is not disrupted or compromised. It is also the tutor’s responsibility to make sure the student completes the work given before the tutoring session.
