Social Studies Tutoring

Private Social Studies Tutoring

Since 2005, we have helped students improve their confidence and grades in a wide range of social studies – government, US history, European history, world history, economics, and more. Our clients have even included other professionals in the field of education - teachers, Ivy League professors, and members of the Princeton University administration. Whether your child is struggling or simply looking for enrichment tutoring, our exceptional private math tutors will create a customized approach tailored specifically for your needs. After each session, you’ll receive a detailed progress report to track your child’s improvement (view a real recap from one of our US History tutoring sessions). 

What Parents Say about Our Social Studies Tutors

The mother of a ninth grader at Princeton High School contacted us to help her son with English and history. His struggles seemed to stem from difficult teachers, difficult essay assignments, and boring books and topics.

We matched the son with Catharine, a public policy major at Princeton University. Catherine is a stellar scholar who co-founded Students for Education Reform, which has grown to more than 140 chapters in over 30 states, and earned her recognition as a young leader to watch by Time, Forbes, and Education Week.

Here’s what we heard back from our client:

“Hello Catharine, I have to say that K has had a lot of tutors and he has progressed far more in a few short weeks with you than years with others before… Thank you for helping him in seeing his potential.”

What further differentiates us from the competition is our genuine desire to help your child succeed. Both Kevin and I started tutoring in high school and continued throughout our college years at Princeton and beyond. We chose to tutor because it was extremely rewarding and something we truly enjoyed. 

Princeton Tutoring was born out of the early successes of our former clients and our desire to provide high-quality tutoring to other families. We understand better than most what parents are looking for, what children need, and which qualities make the best tutors.

Thank you for considering us. We look forward to speaking with you and working with your child to help fulfill his or her academic potential.

Why Do Students Struggle with Social Studies?

Social studies is a broad term, but for our purposes includes economics, government, US history, European history, and world history. In the majority of these subjects, strong critical reading and writing skills are essential for doing well. Also important are the ability to form connections between details learned, and stitch information together to understand cause and effect. Our tutors will not only help clarify the specific material being studied in class, but can also help your child develop stronger critical analysis and writing skills. These are skills that will carry them through all subjects.

Contact Princeton Tutoring today and we’ll match your child with the perfect social studies tutor!
