I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

unit studies, history through Literature

Combine subjects for a price break. For example 30 minutes of Math and 45 minutes of English would cost $50 separately, but would cost $45 for 75 minutes of Combined Tutoring. Simply choose ONE subject for the amount of tutoring time desired, and notify me which subjects you'd like to cover.

I have worked as a tutor for several years and taught a variety of subjects. My main goal is to equip every student with tools they need to be successful. I care more about comprehension and learning, than grades. I work with each student individual to develop a personalized plan of organization, motivation, and accountability.

History is far more than memorizing names and dates, and I don't think it should be taught like that either. We work at understanding what happened and why it happened while understanding when it happened.

I have a Master's Degree in Education, and have been a professional tutor for 9 years.

Why TakeLessons?

History Lessons

History is one of those subjects kids take in school that they either really love, or they really dislike. If your child falls into the latter category, it might simply be that he or she struggles with memorizing facts, figures and historical events. It could be that the subject seems to be a little bit boring. In any case, making sure your child has a good grasp of history is important. If your son or daughter seems to be having a difficult time with history in school, it might be time to look into history tutoring.

The Benefits Of History Tutoring

Our tutors work with your child one-on-one to help them to retain the information they're learning in their classes. Our history tutoring services can make your child's least-favorite subject come alive for them, giving them fresh insight and a desire to dig deeper into their history lessons. Sometimes it just takes someone investing in your child on a personal level to make them find a new interest in a subject like history, and our tutors are equipped to add some fun and excitement to this important school subject. Working with TakeLessons, you’ll be connected with qualified, local tutors, and receive helpful support along the way.
