Boost Your AP US History Score

Your instructor can help you with every section of your exam. The multiple-choice section assesses a student's ability to interpret primary and secondary texts, political cartoons, and maps.

Your instructor can provide test-taking tools developed by experts to help you understand what these stimuli mean and answer the provided questions accordingly. Alternatively, your AP US History tutor can concentrate on the Document-Based Question (DBQ). For instance, your instructor can teach you how to work from an outline so you know which of the seven documents you plan to incorporate into your argument and where to cite them. Many students have found out the hard way that it's easy to forget what goes where without a point of reference.

Best Ways To Prep For AP US History

AP US History covers everything from Native American civilizations circa 1491 CE to the role of the United States in present-day world affairs, leading to an expansive rubric that can intimidate students who try to prepare for it alone. An AP US History tutor can break everything down into more digestible components, helping you feel more prepared on exam day.

Similarly, a private instructor can introduce fresh concepts as you are ready to receive them, ensuring that the pace of your review is neither too fast nor too slow. Software-based alternatives usually cannot offer the same flexibility, making them inferior options.

How much does an AP US History tutor cost?

The price of private instruction depends on a myriad of variables, including how often you would like to meet your instructor and the specific concepts you're interested in reviewing. For example, you may pay a different rate for a brief synopsis of the causes of the Civil War than you would for a deep dive into the cultural development of the United States during the Cold War period.

If you're on a budget, we can also set you up with group tutoring or our AP US History class to help you reach for your academic goals. Please contact us online or by phone for more specific pricing information.

How do I choose an AP US History tutor?

AP US History is a challenging course, so you can't rely on just anybody to help you study it. Our database is filled with instructors who can adapt their methodology to your unique needs and learning style.

For example, a visual learner could use infographics to develop a deeper understanding of which European powers colonized which areas in the New World, while an aural learner could benefit more from a lecture on the subject. Your instructor can also identify the cause of any learning obstacles you encounter, helping you resolve them before you start to feel discouraged.

Are AP US History tutors worth it?

Independent research suggests that formal tutoring can improve a student's test scores by up to 12 percent: an important fact to consider when you could earn college credit for your work. A private tutor can also help you develop superlative study skills that you can take with you to college and beyond.

For example, learning how to highlight important tidbits of information now can prepare you for the dense academic articles you're likely to read in college.

Varsity Tutors also offers a Live Learning Platform to facilitate virtual meetings with your AP US History tutor that can be just as effective as meeting in-person. Contact us today for more info!

Online AP US History Tutoring review by Miranda
The student's AP exam was coming up on Wednesday, so he wanted to get through as much review as possible. I looked through his practice exam from class which he said he had some trouble with, but according to his teacher, everyone was about on the same level. I specifically reviewed the Civil War and WWI with him because he felt these were weaker areas for him. I'm also glad we reviewed later material, because I heard one of the free response questions was about Ronald Reagan.

Online AP US History Tutoring review by Brad
Today, the student and I covered the era from the roaring 20's to the second world war, focusing on FDR and Hoover's policies to counteract the oncoming Depression. She consistently demonstrates an ability to explain ideas succinctly and efficiently. I believe this will be reflected in her scores on the exam. I look forward to next week, where we will be studying mid 20th century American politics.

Online AP US History Tutoring review by Ryan
Today was my first session with the student. After introductions and asking some basic questions, we went over his summer assignments for the U.S. history class he is taking this next school year. He has to read the first three chapters of the book, read another book and also memorize all the U.S. presidents in order. I asked him to list all the U.S. presidents in order that he could, while I gave him clues before telling him the answer and filling in details about the importance of each president. I wrote a list of all the presidents for him to memorize. I then assigned to read the first half of the first chapter of his textbook by next week's session, when I will quiz him on it. I asked him questions and helped explain the background during the Age of Exploration. We created a basic study schedule. We then did some exercises out of his A.P. U.S. history study book, while I explained some tips about finding answers. I then asked him some questions about his interest in history.

Online AP US History Tutoring review by Tyler
The student had a really great last session. It's obvious that he's put in time reviewing the chapters independently and his knowledge of colonial America is really coming together now. Although dates are still fuzzy, his concept of the evolution of colonial America is growing constantly stronger and he is very aware of the major trends (social, economic, religious) that define the region and change over time. He has done a very good job retaining material we covered in past sessions and we spent much of this session on worksheets that required him to synthesize large amounts of material and analyze similarities and differences among the colonies and three main regions. We paid special attention to the changing shape of religion over the centuries, including the Great Awakening as one of the first pan-colonial movements. Next time, we'll be working on memorizing some of the more important dates in colonial history and preparing him for his first exam.

Online AP US History Tutoring review by Laura
Today, he and I discussed the structure of his AP US History course and what he had covered so far. Each week, they have a list of IDs that they must write a brief paragraph on, identifying the term and stating its historical significance. We reviewed a few of his previous terms and then moved onto some of the new terms, including mercantilism, slave codes, King Philip's War, and Bacon's Rebellion. We discussed the importance of economic systems to everyday life, the role of Bacon's Rebellion in solidifying a racial system, the motivations of colonizers, and why it's important to study these things. He is a very bright student who knew the material and thoughtfully answered questions.

Online AP US History Tutoring review by Joseph
We covered material related to what she is covering in class, specifically the pre colonial era. We also spent time going over multiple choice questions strategies and techniques. The student seemed to feel more knowledgeable after the end of the session with answering multiple choice questions and I left her with some studying/reading techniques to use until our next session.
