How can tutoring help you succeed on the CLEP exam?
An introductory course in United States history can seem like an unnecessary hurdle to many incoming college students. Many college freshmen already took US history classes in high school. That's where the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exam comes in. The CLEP exam provides students an opportunity to bypass their history requirements or prerequisites, all by taking a 90-minute exam. The CLEP exam in the History of the United States II: 1865 to the Present covers a traditional second half introductory college course in American history. The events covered during this time period represent some of the most politically charged, convoluted, and challenging aspects of United States history, compounding the difficulty of the CLEP History of the United States II exam. Focusing on events that span from the nineteenth century to almost the present day, the exam requires test takers to have a vast amount of knowledge that can be quickly accessed during test day. Being able to generally distinguish between the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era is not enough, as you may have to answer specific questions on Ronald Reagan's presidency, followed by precise questions on the Teapot Dome scandal, or detailed questions on the Cuban Missile Crisis. You will need to study more than the basic outline of United States history, becoming intimately familiar with the details and relationships among the historical events, figures, and policies you will be expected to know.

This gives you the flexibility to meet with your tutor at the time and location of your choice. These private, individual sessions mean your tutor can be dedicated to working on your individual strengths and weaknesses. If you love the ins and outs of politics, but have trouble with judicial history, your tutor can focus more on your understanding of Supreme Court cases. Conversely, if you know military history, but find the political process uninteresting, your tutor can find ways to make politics slightly more engaging.
You will have the opportunity to ask your private CLEP tutor as many questions as you need to fully grasp the material at hand. You will receive instant feedback from your tutor, a benefit that isn't typically found in traditional classroom environments. So if you're still a little unsure about the role that the Civil Rights Movement played in transforming the United States, you can ask your tutor about it, and they will focus on that era. Or if you want to know more about Jimmy Carter's presidency and the way that it shaped domestic politics, you can ask your tutor and they will be glad to answer your questions and share their knowledge and expertise with you.
