GCSE History tuition focuses on a number of key areas. Confidence, depth and accuracy of subject knowledge is a key focus, and one-to-one tuition offers the opportunity to target study and revision time to the areas of a course a student would most benefit from support with. This includes not only chronological understanding and knowledge of key events and developments, but also analysis of the periods studied applying relevant historical concepts including change over time and the causes and consequences of events.
Learning activities are carefully tailored to the requirements of the syllabus a student is following, as well as their individual study priorities, which we establish at the beginning of the tutoring relationship.
Tuition will also address students’ engagement with historical source material, understanding of the historical site they have studied and understanding of how to answer questions about it, and their critical engagement with interpretations of the past, addressing all the assessment objectives of the course in a balanced and personalised way.
Students are also supported in organising self-study and revision outside the core tutoring sessions so they can feel confident fully confident managing the demands of the course and as they prepare for exams. Tuition is always carefully tailored to each students individual needs and learning preferences.
Tuition is offered for all major examination boards including Pearson Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Eduquas at GCSE as well as tuition for all major IGCSE syllabuses.
One-to-one tuition allows for individualised support for your child. We start with an initial discussion with you and your child to discuss specific needs and put a personalised scheme of work in place.
This then forms the basis of subsequent tuition sessions, whilst retaining the flexibility to adapt and change individual sessions to meet needs that may arise from your child’s day to day study in school.
Individual tuition prices include:
Extra support for your child between sessions is available and can be explored in our initial discussion.
After you contact us via our contact form with a brief overview of your requirements, we will get in touch to undertake a comprehensive assessment and exploration of your child's aims before providing a detailed scheme of work for the sessions ahead.
Once we have agreed together as to how best to achieve your child's goals, we put in place a schedule of tutor sessions, maintaining the flexibility to increase or decrease the duration or number of sessions as suits you.
All tutor sessions are fully resourced with all materials supplied free of charge. Consolidation work after each session is set, and precise, focused feedback is given on a regular basis. With a wealth of experience in the classroom and in tutoring, your child's sessions will be differentiated to perfectly suit their ability and progress.
