PRIVATE US HISTORY TUTORING

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

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 expert tutors can help your child develop critical thinking and writing skills that will not only help them in US history, but many other subjects as well.

WORK WITH A US HISTORY EXPERT

Hi, I’m Maya.

What parents say about our US History 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 10th grader at The O’Neal School contacted us to help her daughter with AP US history.

Her grades were good but she needed help understanding what to expect on the AP exam. She was particularly concerned about the thematic portion and preparing for the writing portion of the exam.

The student was scoring As in her class, but the subject matter did not play to her strengths. Additionally, she was very busy with sports. The daughter wanted somebody to help her effectively and efficiently prepare for the AP History test.

We matched her with Maya, a public policy major at Princeton University with several years of teaching experience, who specialized in writing and reading comprehension.

Here’s some feedback from the student:

“I absolutely loved working with your tutor, Maya, for AP US History this year.

I scored a 5 on my exam! She is so, so wonderful, and really helped me with my writing.”

We receive messages like this every week.

We regularly track progress

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

A Real-Life Example: 

Student: Shiffon
Tutor: Zachary
Subject(s): US History
Date: 3/6
Time Tutored: 16:00 – 17:00

Material Covered:

Today we covered the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, including the Louisiana Purchase and the Chief Justice John Marshall. We also covered some current events in politics.

Additional Comments:

Today Shiffon and I had another tutoring session for U.S History. Today went very well. Shiffon was understanding the material very well. She said that she thinks that she has a good understanding of this material which is great. She has an upcoming quiz which she will be preparing for this weekend. As usual, let me know if you have any questions.

Assignments for Next Week:

I will be sending Shiffon more material to read over the weekend. She will also be studying and making notecards for her upcoming quiz.

LEARN HOW WE CAN HELP

Addresses common student issues

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

Why is US History important?

US history covers everything from the founding of our country and documents like the Declaration of Independence, to the Civil War and Reconstruction, to the Great Depression, the New Deal, and more.

Why do some students struggle with US History?

Many students struggle with organizing the huge amount of material learned. Some also find it challenging to be able to dig down enough to understand the details, but also step away and see the bigger picture. As a result, they may not always see how events are related to each other or the cause-and-effect behind things.

Doing well in US history requires more than just recall of dates and figures. In order to do well, students must be able to critically read and analyze passages, and develop and defend their arguments in essay form. In AP US History, the document-based-questions (DBQ) and free-response questions tend to give students the most trouble.

Easy To Talk To

"Naomee really likes Madison and the sessions seems to be progressing well. Naomee said that Madison is very ‘easy to talk to’ and coming from Naomee it says a lot because she is quite shy. Thank you for everything you did at your end."
