History Study Skills
In addition to comprehending the material and writing history essays, tests and quizzes are a large part of most students’ experiences in history class.
We like to approach the retention of information in as many different ways as possible, introducing students to a variety of methods and working with them to see what brings them the most success. To this end, we discuss learning patterns whereby a student students the first chunk of material on day one, the second on day two, and then returns to part one before continuing on to part three, returning then to parts one and two. We provide skills to create and retain narratives. We offer a variety of graphs, organization methods, charts, and techniques with flash cards and websites. Our goal is to make sure your child is confident in all aspects of history curriculum and assessment.
History Essay Writing
The next most important skill in history class is writing essays and paragraphs about historical events and trends. This process is not merely a regurgitation of facts. Instead, it means finding the right historical evidence–both primary and secondary sources–and matching them to a strong thesis. Our history tutors are brilliant writing instructors who demystify the process of starting with a blank page and learning the skills of annotation, graphic organizers, brainstorming, thesis generation, outlining, and eventually writing introductory, body, and conclusion paragraphs. We teach editing and revising, model best approach, and make sure students build the skills necessary to thrive without support.
