History Tuition

Home-School Tutoring’s history specialists are available to help any students with their history studies, whether they would like assistance or support with homework, controlled assessment preparation, exam preparation, essay writing or for short-term or ongoing extra-curricular booster lessons.

A solid subject

Our history tutors can provide one-to-one tuition for all levels, from primary through to GCSE, AS and A-Level and higher education students.

History has always been a highly regarded subject for universities and employers, as the subject is considered to be one of the most academically rigorous. A good grade in GCSE History, especially if followed up by AS Level or A-Level History demonstrates that a student has strong analytical skills and the ability to apply himself or herself to their studies in order to learn the syllabus.

The percentage of pupils that made GCSE History one of their GCSE subject choices for examinations in 2014 was 41%, while only 31% sat GCSE History exams in 2010. The increase in the popularity of GCSE History has been attributed to the introduction of the English Baccalaureate qualification, for which pupils must gain a grade C or higher in GCSE History or Geography.

How can our history tutors help?

Our tutors can support pupils with all aspects of their history studies, helping them to produce confident and knowledgeable essays, coursework and exam answers. With one-to-one tuition, our history tutors can help students understand how to evaluate critically a wide range of sources and construct well-substantiated, analytic arguments.

Our history specialists are familiar with the National Curriculum for history teaching in schools as well as the exam board syllabuses for GCSE History, AS Level History and A-Level History.

Whether pupils are currently studying British history or European and world history, or would like revision help with the entire history syllabus, our history experts can help bring the past to life and enable greater understanding.

Patient and supportive tuition

With a private tutor the pupil is in control of the pace of their lesson, and our history tutors always aim to create a non-stressful, supportive learning environment.

Our tutors can work with students for short periods on specific topics or skill development or can provide longer term regular support.
