He did a great job explaining how the vocal cords work and helping me adjust bad habits hindering my voice.
Wichie A.
Due to lack of technique, It has tended to hurt after I sing. But after even just 1 lesson with Ben, I IMMEDIATELY felt a difference. Not only did I not feel any pain, I also felt like my throat and jaw was more open and relaxed than I've ever felt.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this instructor.

She is very patience with my daughter! Great!
Chloe
She said she couldn’t help me unless we were on zoom. No one told me this and I don’t know how to do zoom. So then she told me to connect to her on the computer and not my phone so I tried that. That didn’t work. So she looked at my screen and told me it was blurry. Then after all that we lost connection and she was unwilling to reschedule so I could actually get what I paid for which was help!!! All my other teachers on here have been good, but I can’t recommend jasmine as it was a complete waste of my money.

I want to share my love of American History with my students. Most students think of history as a list of memorized dates, and there is that component, but there also are living, breathing individuals who created that history. I hope my students take away at least a respect of history that they didn't have before and of course a more knowledgeable view.

About History

History refers to the stories we tell of the past. The subject involves the study of people, places, events, problems, and societies during specific periods of time. 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.

Here at TakeLessons, we offer a wide variety of experience and professional history tutors who can help. Whether your child is falling behind in class or looking to score a 5 on the AP history exam, our tutors will get your child up to speed. Check out our guide below to see if signing up with an online history tutor is right for you or your child.

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. Because our history tutors offer private instruction, your child will receive the attention they need to improve their studies. They can ask all the questions they have and spend as long as they need to work through difficult topics. Every tutor knows how to assess their students’ skillset and create a customized course of action. 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. In fact, we’re so confident you’ll see an improvement, that we offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee with your first tutoring session.

Benefits of an Online History Tutor

If you’ve looked into signing up for any kind of class or schooling lately, you probably have noticed how many schools and institutions have turned to online platforms. Some school districts have moved to 100% remote learning, while others are offering more online courses than ever before. As this trend continues to become more popular, students find themselves signing onto virtual classrooms for all kinds of instruction, from AP classes to tutoring sessions.

Here at TakeLessons, we’re following this virtual learning trend, as we provide online tutoring sessions for all our students. When you sign up with one of our online history tutors, you can begin learning whenever works best for you.
