History is a subject that is taught at all ages throughout primary, secondary, and post-secondary education.

The popularity of university history courses means high demand for history tutoring in London among university students, secondary school pupils and even primary school students.

History tuition for primary school students in London

Historical themes can be a great source of entertainment for students in primary school. When children are interested in learning about historical events, they also enjoy thinking about historical figures. They particularly enjoy all of the gory, ugly, or just plain mad parts of the stories they read, which explains why Horrible Histories is so popular.

One can summarize history in the National Curriculum in a few simple statements: placing events in chronological order; identifying contrasts and similarities; writing about the past and discussing it with others; obtaining and organizing information from a variety of sources; and asking and answering historical questions. Everyone in each year group will work on all of these activities at some point and study the link between "back then" and "now."

When children reach Key Stage 1, they may be asked to learn about specific people or events that occurred both within and outside of living history, depending on the subject. Teachers often have freedom to choose who or what they want to focus on in class and there is a great deal of variation between schools. Some of the most popular candidates include astronauts Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake and women like Grace Darling and Florence Nightingale. Historical events such as the Great Fire of London and the first flight of an aeroplane are popular and themes such as castles or toys provide excellent learning opportunities about the past. The connection to a local event or individual is often gripping and powerful when it comes to learning about history.

When your child reaches key stage two, they will begin to learn about specific historical periods.

Children will also learn about some of the world's most important civilizations throughout history. At this point, having an online history tutor is a fantastic way to pique children's interest in history while also assisting them with their history homework at school.

History tutoring in London for secondary school, GCSE and A-level

When you start secondary school, the volume of history lessons increases and your child/teenager will have between 3 and 3.5 hours of history lessons per week. The course covers the principles and events that are essential to gaining a thorough understanding of historical events.

Historical studies are taught at both GCSE and A level, and your child may require assistance in the run-up to essential GCSE history or A level history examinations. Our history tutors can provide homework support and help with history coursework and exam preparation.

How to study for your history exams with a history tutor

How do you ensure that you understand and retain information from your history lessons? This is a question we are often asked at GoStudent. Indeed, history requires the learner to memorise. There are many key dates to remember and connections to make between different elements of history.

Making connections between different aspects of the syllabus and writing them down during the exam is necessary to pass a history exam successfully. To accomplish this, it is a good idea for students to break their learning down into sections and review lessons in chronological order.

Finally, private tuition in history can also be a perfect remedy when it comes to allowing your child or teenager to take the time to memorise. They will be able to revise with a tutor who understands the issues and has the expertise to help them child learn faster and more effectively.
