Our approach to History & Social Science Tutoring
Read between the lines
If your child is struggling in a social science class, you may be tempted to shrug it off as a lack of interest.

Our Professional Tutors are trained to diagnose and assess the root cause of the issue. This ensures that your child’s grades improve while also giving them the tools to be successful throughout their academic career.

Our Professional Tutors will encourage higher order thinking – moving beyond just the facts to analyze and evaluate historical events. Your child will learn how to craft an argument and write about it clearly and persuasively with supporting evidence.
Tell a story
Our Professional Tutors are experts at connecting academic material to a student’s personal interests. Your tutor will go above and beyond to pique your child’s interest in the material and keep sessions fun and engaging. When your child finds a true passion for learning, the possibilities are endless.
