How can African-American History tutoring help you succeed?
Despite the fact that people of African descent have been present for nearly every stage of European settlement in America, the history of African-Americans has largely been treated as a subplot to the larger story of history within the United States. The challenges of African American history lie well beyond the fact that it often occupies a specialized niche in the greater historical tapestry. African Americans' traditionally marginalized position throughout history means that sources, evidence, and documents can be extremely hard to find compared to other kinds of sources.
Studying such a historical field in college requires all the skills necessary to study American history more broadly, but it also requires special skills and lenses that allow a student to handle the unique issues presented by African American history. Mastering all of the important concepts in the field can be quite overwhelming for many students, even if they are passionate about the subject. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with experts in African American history nationwide to help you succeed via African American history tutoring.
Tutors have advanced degrees in history from some of the best colleges and universities in the country. They know all of the traps and issues present in approaching African American history, and can help you address the significance, causes, and impacts of events well beyond the scope of a textbook. They are more than experts in African American history. They are also exceptional educators who enjoy helping students fulfill their potential and excel in the classroom. The key attribute for any instructor is a desire to help students.
African American history tutoring follows an individualized plan in a one-on-one setting. Tutoring engagements are based around the specific strengths and weaknesses of you, the student. This means that your tutor can custom-design lesson plans and curricula to best guide you toward your academic goals. A student who has trouble handling primary sources can get assistance from a tutor in working with those sources. Similarly, if a student has trouble with some of the theoretical underpinnings of African American history, his or her tutor can focus on helping the student understand the ramifications of certain philosophical outlooks within the subject. The roadblocks that you encounter while trying to understand an African American history course do not need to derail your success.
The type of individual instruction you can receive from a private tutor can be hard to come by in a traditional classroom setting. Your teacher likely has one specific way to go about presenting the information and they likely do not allow students to dictate the pace of the class. With private tutoring this is not the case. Your private tutor can adapt the way they teach to fit your specific learning style and they allow you to spend as much time as you need with a given subject. So whether you are confused about a concept and need to spend more time with it or you immediately grasp a topic and are ready to move on, your private tutor can adapt to your needs.
Varsity Tutors places a strong emphasis on convenience and flexibility. The live learning platform enables you to meet with your private tutor in person or face-to-face online. This gives you the flexibility to meet at the time and place that is most convenient for your schedule. The more comfortable you are with your study environment, the more you are likely to get out of your tutoring sessions. With this in mind, you are highly encouraged to meet your tutor in the place where you feel most comfortable.
