Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
We wrote a one page article on recent developments in the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, summarizing articles on life in the occupied territories after the Oslo Peace Accord. This ends the section on the Middle East. We also read a short story for English and practiced writing a topic sentence and follow up sentence along with examples meant to back up our assertions in a paragraph on a piece of literature. We were able to work on the student's writing using this story as a jumping off point. I think he liked this story and had plenty of ideas for the paragraph.
The student and I discussed his homework. We looked at his math worksheet on prime factorization. As usual, he was able to complete the problems on his own with very little difficulty. We also discussed an essay for social studies on the importance of the Nile to the Ancient Egyptians. The student typed up the essay for his typing practice.
In this session, we went over several sections in world history that covered ancient civilizations of the Americas. The student had questions to answer as well as some formatted paragraphs to write about this topic. We also went over tentative plans for wrapping up the semester/finals, as well as completing his community service.
The student and I got to know each other by talking about her school and classes. We discussed her strengths and weaknesses as a student and the ways she stays organized. We then dived into the content of her class by discussing her current history assignment.
Reviewed world history chapter dealing with colonization. Explained the concept of First versus Second versus Third World and also explained the different European powers involved in the colonization era between 1780 and 1910. Reviewed the importance of naval power and armies in establishing a colony, and distinguished colonies from territories and protectorates. Explained the Berlin Conference.
Reviewed study guide for Age of Exploration: 15th-17th centuries. Student 1 has a great handle on the material; he is obviously engaged in the classroom. Expanding on the salient points in a more detailed and comprehensive manner on paper would be key to better test grades.
Student 2 is doing well in Biology and truly enjoys the challenge. Good bit of material being covered this semester; the organization of which has been very good for general study skills.
We talked about how to structure an essay, based on past exam essays and concepts she is expected to know. We also outlined 5 model essays to prepare her for her exam.
During this session we focused on the student's History assignment, which was to read material regarding the Confederate and Union states and their soldiers. She needed to write a short paragraph using specific vocabulary from the text. We discussed vocabulary to ensure proper understanding and then used the text for ideas to create paragraph.
The student needed help understanding a few time periods of Korean history. I explained to her what she needed to understand for her quiz, which is Thursday. I believe she has a better understanding of Korean history because I quizzed her throughout the lesson, and she has much more knowledge about the subject than before.
The student has a paper on the collapse of the Soviet Union due next week, so we worked on strengthening his outline, making sure his body paragraphs had supporting evidence, and finding a variety of sources for his main points.
Today we reviewed for the student's Western Civ final. We looked through the book and I asked questions while he was looking for vocabulary on the computer. We got through the first three chapters concerning the Renaissance and Exploration. We still have more work to do but progress is great.
For this session, the student and I started by reviewing types of sentences that we worked on last session. Following the same vein, I decided that we should work on types of dependent clauses. We studied the three core dependent clauses(adjective, adverb, and noun). The student was very attentive and responsive to each section. After discussing grammar and style, we moved into world history. We had an open discussion about Greek culture and their contribution to history. The discussion was quite productive.
How can a tutor assist you in conquering World History?
A year of world history is a traditional mainstay of high school history curricula. Success in such a course requires an approach to history that integrates and challenges a variety of different skills. Students must be able to develop their own perspectives on historical events, identify the ways in which they are interrelated, and pinpoint ways in which they influenced later events. Unlike more focused courses in the history of a specific country or era, a course in world history requires a brand of broad critical thinking that may challenge you as previous history courses have not. Furthermore, the sheer amount of information you need to familiarize yourself with and be able to draw upon may be daunting. If your world history course is proceeding too quickly for you to master each topic it covers, your instructor’s teaching style doesn’t mesh well with the ways in which you best learn, or you simply want to bring organization and efficiency to your studies by working with someone knowledgeable of history, consider contacting Varsity Tutors to learn about world history tutoring offered nationwide.
You will work with a qualified and dedicated world history tutor, who we help you select based upon your concerns, strengths, weaknesses, and preferred learning style. World history tutors can develop customized learning plans meant to strengthen your weak areas of understanding, reinforce concepts, and help you develop as a critical thinker. In your initial world history tutoring sessions, your tutor can help you identify where you need the most assistance to achieve your academic goals. Using specific teaching methods tailored to the ways in which you find it easiest to learn, your tutor can then help you understand assignments, study for tests, and formulate essays for your world history course.
More than just helping you memorize course material, the purpose of these world history tutoring sessions are to help you understand the sociological, political, and cultural undercurrents of world history. World history tutors encourage their students to think about history not only as a fact-based timeline, but as a constantly-shifting web of related events. Developing such a broad perspective on world history can help you better understand the big picture formed by all of the details surrounding people, places, and events that you learn.
At Varsity Tutors, we recognize that your busy schedule may make world history tutoring seem difficult to incorporate into your life. However, your tutor will work to make your tutoring as convenient as possible. Tutors are flexible and can meet at whatever time and location you prefer. These tutors are dedicated to working with your current understanding of world history, building you up from that point, and helping you achieve the goals you have for yourself in your world history class.
