History Lessons

History refers to the study of past events. It could be events that took place 5,000 years ago or incidents that occurred five years ago. Studying this subject gives us insight into those before us with the hopes of learning from their actions.

If you’re interested in learning more about a certain subject in history or receiving tutoring to improve your history test scores, we’re here to help. At TakeLessons, we offer in-person tutoring sessions and the best online history lessons around. Our certified tutors are the experts at teaching students of all ages and skills!

At TakeLessons, it’s our mission to provide students with the best possible instruction. It’s also why we only work with the most qualified and experienced tutors. All of our history teachers are certified and have passed background checks, so you can take comfort knowing you’re in good hands.

When you’re ready to sign up for our in-person or online history lessons, you can begin by choosing your preferred history teacher. Finding your ideal match is easy—browse our inventory and read each teacher’s profile to find out about their expertise, education, qualifications, schedule, and rates.

History Online Lessons for All Ages

It’s never too early for your children to begin studying this subject. Maybe they’re interested in learning their state’s history or getting ahead in colonial studies. If that’s the case, our history lessons for kids are the ideal place to start.

However, we also feature history lessons for adults. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn more about the U.S. government or want to get a leg-up on your history studies in your night classes. No matter what age you are, our history teachers will help you achieve all your academic goals.

History Lessons for All Levels

Unlike other subjects, like mathematics and language studies, there aren’t necessarily “levels” when studying history. For example, you don’t need to learn about Ancient Rome before you can study Western Expansion. When it comes to studying history, you don’t always need to learn in chronological order. That said, it can help to grasp what came before to really understand certain history subjects.

During your sessions, your history teacher will determine how to tutor you based on what you already know and what you’d like to dive into deeper. Sign up for our history lessons for beginners or advanced students today!

Sample Curriculum for Beginner History Lessons

These lessons are great for younger students who are just starting to study history in elementary school. They’ll cover high-level concepts to help introduce students to the wonderful world of history.

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate History Lessons

Intermediate history lessons are usually geared toward middle school and high school history students. Intermediate students will build off of what they’ve already learned to examine historical events and how they’ve shaped the present day.

Sample Curriculum for Advanced History Lessons

Advanced history lessons are often associated with topics taught at the university or postgraduate level. These lessons will be more nuanced as they provide in-depth coverage of specific events and time periods.

What makes a good history tutor?

A good history tutor is one who has the knowledge and expertise to teach students. Here at TakeLessons, we only work with certified teachers who have the education and qualifications to instruct our students. In addition to their knowledge, our tutors are supportive, patient, and encouraging to ensure that their students achieve their academic goals. Our tutors go above and beyond to help our students make sense of history topics across the centuries.

How do I prepare for a tutoring lesson?

The beauty of taking our history lessons is you can come to your lessons just as you are! We make learning history easy, convenient, and hassle-free. However, we do recommend coming to your lesson with a notebook and pen or pencil so that you can take notes. It’s also a good idea to come to your session with any questions you have and goals in mind. When you share your learning goals, your tutor can create a customized lesson plan around your needs.
