History of Science Tutoring FAQ
We often think of science in what the medieval philosophers termed in actu exercito - in exercised act. That is, we think of science as something that we learn in order to do or at least to know the current state of the art. Rarely do we think of the long history of science as a discipline of much interest. Every new accomplishment seems to be the most important aspect of science, so what use can there be to study the history of science? It turns out, there is a lot of use to it, but the barrier to entry is often very steep and difficult to climb. If you are taking a course in the history of science or the philosophy of science, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with the perfect tutor to aid you in this complex field of studies through one-on-one history of science tutoring.
Studying the history of science requires a two-fold set of skills. On the one hand, you must be able to digest the many forms of information and sources that are presented for a history course. Indeed, if your course really covers the whole of scientific history, you will need to learn about even the early mathematical accomplishments of the Egyptians and Greeks, along with the modern themes of quantum mechanics and non-Euclidean geometry. From the detailed works of Aristotle to the Arab astronomers to Dietrich of Fribourg's explanation of the rainbow in the fourteenth century, many of your courses will discuss scientific discoveries that predate the main concepts of science that are such an integral part of the popular historical imagination. Add to that the history of classical mechanics, the great climax and seismic shifts of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in physics, and contemporary topics, and you have quite a difficult set of historical facts and figures with which to become acquainted. Furthermore, the subtleties of the philosophy of science, both ancient and modern, and the extra-scientific skills that you need are quite formidable. On the other hand, the history of science also requires comprehension of technological accomplishment; therefore, you will need apt skills in the basic outlines of scientific knowledge across various disciplines in order to master this course. In order to find success in this difficult field, consider requesting the help of a tutor. History of science tutoring can be quite helpful in dissecting the dual nature of historical and scientific mastery.
Your personal tutor will draft an individual learning plan that suits your needs from your personal learning style to your course syllabus and beyond. Each tutoring session is held at a pace that supports your learning habits. If you need to spend additional time working with one aspect of science's history, you are free to do so in as many sessions as you need. In addition, these are held based on your timetable, rather than the tutor's, to ensure optimal flexibility around your personal schedule. With such a flexible schedule, it is easy to fit in time to learn either face-to-face online or in person.
With so much being demanded of your studies, it is little wonder that the history of science or philosophy of science can be quite a demanding class. Instead of feeling doubtful about your success in this intriguing but difficult subject, find an expert tutor who can help you through the many and varied topics that need to be learned in order to succeed. No matter what your background, a tutor can help you build on your previous knowledge and experience, thus leading you step by step to proficiency and excellence in the history of science.

Recent History of Science Tutoring Session Notes
Today, the student and I began our session with a review of chapters twelve and thirteen of "To Kill a Mockingbird". We worked on her study guide and discussed some of the major plot points. We also discussed some of the minor characters and how they fit into the story.
The student and I spent most of our time working on the next chapter of her history text (the growth of western democracies). We talked about Queen Victoria and Benjamin Disraeli and how the British government changed at this time, specifically the suffrage movement. She is planning to make notecards for all of her key people, terms, and ideas for review. We discussed the idea of still color-coding the Info on the cards, especially because she felt that had helped before. She thought that was a good idea and plans to incorporate it.
The student and I reviewed for her test this Friday. We began by putting her social studies journal together with all the necessary articles that would also be covered in her exam. I quizzed her orally from Thomas Jefferson to Andrew Jackson (including War of 1812, LA Purchase, and Lewis and Clarke) in addition to going over the answers to the last test, in which she under-performed. I encouraged her to go over the new material (post-1812) as she missed classes regarding the respective topics and review her old test.
Consisted of completing the student's Science worksheet which focused on the periodic table, minerals, Moh's table, and other geological aspects, in addition to the Social Studies packet which focused on reading comprehension.
The student had to watch a video and write a movie review about the Gold Rush. We talked about the kind of things that need to go into a movie review, such as cast, plot, and whether she liked the movie or not. After reviewing the film, we typed up the review. She is looking forward to next year, when she's taking advanced math for the first time.
The student hasn't had math since our last session, so today we worked on vocabulary and her Denmark project. She struggled a little with the vocabulary exercises. She was very enthusiastic about her Denmark project and showed me her completed display board. We completed her research together and she came up with topic sentences and conclusions for each of her research areas in preparation for writing up her report. She also decided how to organize the topics within her report.
We studied for her upcoming test on "Reconstruction & the Civil Rights Movement". She has indicated she needed help remembering all of the organizations in the Civil Rights Movement, so we worked on that, and she did very well after reviewing flash cards. No extra practice, except to continue to study for her test.
