Why Choose Varsity Tutors for Social Studies Tutoring

Dedicated Private Social Studies Tutoring Online

Let the experts at Varsity Tutors connect you or your student with a knowledgeable social studies tutor in as little as 24 hours. We thoroughly vet every instructor in our network, so you can count on working with a tutor who boasts both a strong understanding of social studies and demonstrable teaching skills.

Of course, our vetting process doesn't stop there. Here are some of the other things we look for:

  • An ability to break complicated concepts into more digestible components
  • A willingness to adapt their methodology to accommodate a specific pupil's needs
  • A results-driven approach to education
  • The ability to quickly pinpoint and address a student's specific areas of opportunity

Proven Social Studies Help For All Levels

Social studies is first introduced to students at the grammar school level and increases in complexity as they ascend the educational ladder. If your young learner is having a hard time focusing on the history of their home state, their instructor can turn study sessions into a game to make the material more engaging.

If your student is a little older, their social studies tutor can demonstrate active-reading techniques such as note-taking to help them retain more of what they read in their textbook. If you're struggling with all of the unfamiliar proper nouns in a world history social studies course, your instructor can make you flashcards to help you study them. In short, anyone can benefit from tutoring.

Improve Grades and Test Scores In Social Studies

If you're nervous about an upcoming essay, your tutor can show you how to work from an outline to make it easier to include all of the details your teacher is looking for. Working from an outline can also save you from staring at the page wondering what you should say next, as you have a clear guideline to follow.

Likewise, your instructor can show you how to identify important keywords that can completely change the meaning of a question. For example, the word "not" completely reverses what you're looking for in a multiple-choice item. You don't want to say that a state like New York was on the Confederate side during the Civil War, do you?

How much does a social studies tutor cost?

The price of professional social studies tutoring is determined by your specific needs, including how often you meet with your tutor and what you want to review. For instance, you can expect to pay a different rate for a quick synopsis of the role of the Byzantine Empire during the Middle Ages than an in-depth analysis of the causes of the French Revolution.

We also provide a live social studies class if you want to study with a group of like-minded students, and we can arrange group tutoring if you want to split the cost of private social studies tutoring with other people. Contact us right away for more info on these options.

How does online social studies tutoring work?

We understand that you or your student may not have the free time to commit to in-person study sessions, so we've developed a Live Learning Platform that allows you to meet your instructor anywhere with a reliable internet connection. Our platform harnesses powerful features such as video chat and integrated practice problems so that students can receive the same type of hands-on study experience they could in-person.

It also records every study session automatically, so you can go back for a refresher on anything you've discussed with your tutor before at your leisure. Use the "Get Started" tab above or give us a call if you have any further questions regarding our Live Learning Platform.

Are social studies tutors worth it?

Some students are too shy to ask for help around their peers. Working in a 1:1 learning environment completely eliminates this problem, allowing your student to seek clarification as soon as they don't understand something.

This fact alone can make tutoring worth it.

Independent studies also suggest that working with a private tutor can help an average student rise to the top 2 percent of their class. Furthermore, high-achievers are just as likely to benefit from private instruction as their peers. If those statistics sound good to you, reach out to Varsity Tutors right now to learn just how easy it can be to connect with a social studies tutor.

Online Social Studies Tutoring review by Nick
The student had prepared a written database of his study terms and I went over them with him. He seemed to have worked hard to study them to make sure he had them down, but I noted areas he was still weak on. All in all, I think the student will do well on his test tomorrow and I'm glad to have worked with him.

Online Social Studies Tutoring review by John
He needed to do a one page summary using his notes, a video and two articles. We went over the text book, added a video and I helped him write a rough draft of the topic. We also looked at his English assignment. He had to read a difficult short story and write a few meaningful sentences. He had not read it yet so I skimmed through it and showed him places of importance and how he might focus his topic.
