Why Choose Varsity Tutors for History Tutoring

Dedicated Private History Tutoring Online

We will help you find a great history tutor in as little as 24 hours. Varsity Tutors is an industry leader because our advanced tutor-matching technology can set students up with a private tutor for individualized instruction or group tutoring for an incredible value.

We also vet every instructor in our network based on the following criteria:

  • Extensive historical knowledge
  • Proven teaching and communication skills
  • A results-driven approach to education
  • A willingness to adapt sessions to a pupil's innate learning style
  • An ability to identify why a student may be struggling with a particular topic
  • Great personality
  • Proven History Help For All Levels

    Students are introduced to history from a young age, and online history tutoring can prove beneficial on every rung of the educational ladder. If your young learner has just started studying the Founding Fathers, their instructor can teach them a song to help them remember the importance of figures such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

    If the student in your life is a little bit older and studying world history, their instructor can make them virtual flashcards to help them keep track of unfamiliar proper nouns. If you are taking history at the high school or college level, your instructor can show you how to outline written assignments to make them feel less intimidating.

    Improve Grades and Test Scores In History

    History exams sometimes place a large emphasis on rote memorization, and a history tutor can show you or your student handy tricks to make it easier. For instance, your instructor can help you come up with a mnemonic device to help you remember who was on which side in World War I.

    Your instructor can also share valuable test-taking tips to enhance your self-confidence heading into an exam. For example, you can learn how to eliminate some incorrect answer choices on a multiple-choice exam to make any guesses you take more effective. If your state has a standardized test in history, a private tutor can help you prepare for it as well.

    How much does a history tutor cost?

    The price of online history tutoring depends on several variables, including the level of detail you're searching for and how often you wish to meet your instructor. For instance, a student who wants a quick refresher of the Soviet perspective of the Cold War may pay a different rate than somebody who needs a lot of help understanding the culture of ancient Egypt.

    If you're looking for more affordable options, you can also take a live Varsity Tutors history class or consider group tutoring to get more value for your money. Click the "Get Started" tab above or call us today to learn more about all of the options available to you.

    How does online history tutoring work?

    You'll meet your instructor on our Live Learning Platform: a virtual study space packed with a plethora of features designed to improve your study experience. For instance, a virtual whiteboard makes it easy for you to take notes on the Ming dynasty or the causes of the Spanish-American War.

    Our platform also offers video chat capabilities, so raising your hand to ask a question is just as easy as it would be in-person. Most importantly, our platform records every session automatically. If you want to go back and review ancient Roman history in the middle of the night, you may do so.

    Are history tutors worth it?

    Working with a private history tutor can be a great way for students to develop skills that will serve them well later in life, including reading comprehension ability, written communication skills, and how to concentrate on topics you may not be particularly interested in. Students can also feel more comfortable in the classroom if they are receiving personalized academic support.

    How can tutoring help you succeed in History?

History is not just about the past; it is about why the past happened and about understanding the past. This allows us to plan for the future so that we can do things differently.

    History is also the study of great individuals and what they have done to contribute to civilization. History tutoring can help you understand the past so that you can see into the lives of these people and what it was like to live in their times.

    The main focus of the session was The student's project for Western Civ. We clarified the assignment that her teacher gave her and began some research for the project. We also spent a little time working on Spanish grammar.

    Today went over Unit 6, 7, and some of 8 from the student's study guide provided by his teacher for his History class. We went through the book, covering dates, events, names, places, and numbers. The student takes very good, concise notes on his laptop during our study sessions.

    Online History Tutoring review by Juan
    Today, the student and I began by finishing his Abraham Lincoln project. We also went through his speech one more time, making a few small edits (grammar, mostly). We finished the session with math homework (finding patterns, determining if they are arithmetic/geometric/both/neither).

    We summarized his book about the New Deal. The student skimmed pages for details and told me them, and I asked comprehensive questions to send him back into the text to explain the details in comprehensible chunks.
