How can African History tutoring help you?
Studying the rich and ancient history of Africa presents any student with numerous challenges. African history encompasses a history that spans for millennia and attempts to describe an entire continent and the many distinct cultures, kingdoms, and civilizations that it gave rise to. Thus, the breadth of the subject can make it seem extremely overwhelming. While African history classes may narrow their focus to particular eras, cultures, or regions, more challenges arise from the interconnectedness and interactions between African regions, as well as the complex relationships with European cultures.
The paucity of written documentation of much of ancient African history means one may need to approach it using methods very different from the text-based studies used to address the histories of other regions, cultures, or eras. You may be expected to piece together early African history from sources as various as art, cultural traditions, transcribed oral stories, architecture, archeological findings, and other historical elements that form a part of a greater picture of a society at a given time. Additionally, the way in which Africa's cultural landscape was altered by the slave trade, the way in which it was divided up, colonized, and eventually decolonized by European countries, and its later political instability all can present students with unpleasant aspects of history that are difficult to discuss or come to terms with.
If you are having a hard time in your African history course and could use some personal guidance from someone knowledgeable about the subject, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with an African history tutor. These highly skilled and experienced tutors have succeeded in their own African history courses, and our educational directors can help you connect with a private tutor whose previous experience with the subject best suits your specific concerns and particular course content.
A private tutor can work to custom tailor your African history tutoring to address just those aspects of the subject that you find most confusing. If you need help in researching a paper, putting the significance of a particular artifact into words, or keeping track of a large timeline of events spanning centuries, we can help connect you with a tutor who can help. The lesson plan your tutor creates for your African history tutoring sessions prioritizes your needs and concerns, and doesn't waste time reviewing material you already understand, allowing your tutoring experience to be extremely efficient and effective. Your tutor can also work at your pace, which allows you to spend as much time on a particular topic as you need to fully comprehend it.
You can have your tutor's full attention during your sessions, giving you the opportunity to discuss confusing points, receive feedback on your work, and have questions answered as they arise during your learning process. This is something that may not really be an option in a classroom setting, because your teacher likely doesn't have the time to spend significant time with individual students.
Varsity Tutors is dedicated to providing you with an experience that is both flexible and convenient. Our live learning platform allows you to meet with your private tutor either in person or face-to-face online. This gives you the freedom to meet your tutor at a time and place that works best for you. Studying in a comfortable environment will ensure that you are getting the most out of each tutoring session. With this in mind, your tutor can meet you at whatever location feels most comfortable to you.

Next we studied for her World Cultures test on Tuesday. It's over a lot of material, and she hasn't had much homework on it, so it's not very fresh. We filled in all the terms on her study guide and answered all of the questions, but she's got a lot of studying left to do before she'll know it well enough for the test."
