PRIVATE SOCIAL STUDIES TUTORING

Since 2005, we’ve helped students improve their confidence and grades in all levels of social studies.

We’re especially proud of the fact that other educators (teachers and professors) and high profile members of the Princeton University Administration trust us with their children’s academic success and recommend our services to others.

Our social studies tutors will not only help clarify the specific material being studied in class, but can also help your child develop stronger critical analysis and writing skills.

WORK WITH A SOCIAL STUDIES EXPERT

Hi, I’m Catharine.

What parents say about our Social Studies tutors

Our team includes award-winning Princeton University undergrads and Master’s/PhD graduates who are rigorously screened and are extremely effective at communicating the material.

A quick “case study”: 

The mother of a ninth grader at Princeton High School contacted us to help her son with English and history.

His struggles seemed to stem from difficult teachers, difficult essay assignments, and boring books and topics.

He had been diagnosed with moderate to severe auditory processing disorder and had been working with a specialist.

We matched the son with Catharine, a public policy major at Princeton University.

Catherine is a stellar scholar who co-founded Students for Education Reform, which has grown to more than 140 chapters in over 30 states, and earned her recognition as a young leader to watch by Time, Forbes, and Education Week.

Here’s some feedback we received:

“Hello Catharine, I have to say that Kurren has had a lot of tutors and he has progressed far more in a few short weeks with you than years with others before…

Thank you for helping him in seeing his potential.”

We receive messages like these every week.

We regularly track progress

Progress reports are shared after every session so you always know what’s going on.

LEARN HOW WE CAN HELP

Addresses common student issues

A deep understanding of the subject matter allows us to personalize our approach.

Why is social studies important?

Social studies is a broad term, but for our purposes includes economics, government, US history, European history, and world history.

Why do some students struggle with social studies?

In the majority of these subjects, strong critical reading and writing skills are essential for doing well. Also important are the ability to form connections between details learned, and stitch information together to understand cause and effect.

Good News!

"Good news! My daughter went from having a C/F to a high B (one point from an A) in her latest test and the credit goes to Sweta. Just wanted to share with you. Thank you."
