History in grades 9-12

Get started with the history tutoring process

Our history and social science tutoring process

We are committed to frank discussion and realistic expectations for improvement.



We recommend weekly 90-minute sessions. Working on a regular basis means you’ll retain what you study, avoid “cramming,” and find preparing for final exams to be much less stressful.


We have specialists in US history, world history, economics, and psychology and are up to date on all the major curricula taught at the local middle and high schools.


After getting input from your family, we’ll adapt the program to your learning style and create the right balance of study skills and content review. We’ll tailor the focus of each one-on-one session to meet your needs.


In great theater, the production team’s work behind the scenes enables the actors to reach new heights onstage. In the same way, our team works together to ensure your success.


Learning should be fun.
