Private World History Tutoring

Since 2005, we have helped students improve their confidence and grades in world history, AP World History, and the World History SAT Subject Test. 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 world history 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 world history tutoring sessions).

What Parents Say about Our World History Tutors

The mother of a fifth grader at Princeton Charter School contacted us to help her daughter with history, English, and math. Her daughter is highly intelligent and sees the big picture well, but has trouble with the details. Every now and then, she would “bomb” a test for no particular reason. Our goal was to help her execute at the detailed level, as well as to teach her proper study, test-taking, and organizational skills.

We matched her with Colleen, an anthropology major at Princeton University who was valedictorian of her high school and has lots of experience working with middle school students. The parent later said:

“Hi Colleen, I can’t thank you enough for working with J this past year. You were able to adjust to engage her in every subject area and stimulate interest and enthusiasm for learning. We will miss you this summer and hope to see you again in the fall.”

Why Princeton Tutoring?

The Most Effective Matching Process – No need for you to scroll through dozens of potentially unqualified tutor profiles. Our experienced staff will match you with the tutor who will be the perfect fit for your child’s unique needs. 

Post-Tutoring Recaps – Session summaries keep you in the loop, help you track progress, and give you peace of mind.

Satisfaction Guaranteed – We have an impressive track record of increased grades and confidence, and many of our clients are returning customers or referrals. This is why we can offer the best guarantee in the industry.

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 World History?

World history spans prehistoric times all the way to the present. Needless to say, that’s a lot of material! And because there’s so much to cover, the pace in such classes can be dauntingly fast. 
Many students struggle with organizing the huge amount of data, especially when it involves countries they may not be familiar with. Some also find it challenging to be able to dig down enough to understand the details, but also step away and see the bigger picture. As a result, they may not always see how events are related to each other or the cause-and-effect behind things.
Doing well in world history requires more than just recall of dates and figures. Students must be able to critically read and analyze passages, and develop and defend their arguments in essay form.
Our tutors can help your child develop critical thinking and writing skills that will not only help them in world history, but many other subjects as well.
