UCF Master's Degree with 15+ years of tutoring experience

Education has always been a big part of my life. In grade school, my teachers would often ask me to work with other students in class who needed assistance with the current lesson. This gift of being able to help others resonated with me and I realized very quickly that everyone does not learn in the same way. In high school, I volunteered with students with special needs and discovered there are many ways to communicate and teach. At San ... See more

Why You Need a Social Studies Tutor

Social Studies is a part of a school or college curriculum concerned with the study of social relationships and the functioning of society and usually made up of courses in history, government, economics, civics, sociology, geography, and anthropology. This is so important because it teaches us about past and current events, human interactions, and human history. Social Studies widens our perspective on the world we live in. All students will be required to take Social Studies at some point during their time in school because it touches on so many different topics so it only makes sense to have a solid understanding of the topic. However, there are still courses that are explicitly entitled Social Studies that students will have to pass in order to keep moving forward on their quest to get an education. Many students find this topic dry or just plain unimportant. However, Social Studies should not be pushed to the back burner as it is extremely vital in education and our lives. The key to helping your child succeed in this dense topic is by hiring a private Social Studies tutor.

Social Studies classes start at a young age, sometimes even as early as preschool in some schools. There are a variety of ways that this course matter is introduced but for the most part, it comes from the several hands-on activities that your child is doing in class. Things such as projects or working together in small groups all are considered Social Studies. However, not all students do well in these types of activities and because of this, you might see that your child is lacking some confidence and social skills as well as grade marks. In order for this to be something that your child can get through and move forward, they need to work with a Social Studies tutor. At HeyTutor we have the professionals who are willing to sit down with your child and help them in ways that you as a parent may not be able to so you know “I need a Social Studies tutor.” It is important that they pick up these skills early on so that they can grow into fantastic adults. It starts right here with their knowledge of Social Studies.

As your child continues to grow and age, the curriculum starts stepping away from social situations and starts focusing on book work. In fact, your child might find themselves getting into trouble if they are being too social or talkative during Social Studies lessons. This is usually rooted in the fact that your child is struggling to pick up the subject matter. When a child is confused or unable to really learn like the rest of the children they are more likely to lash out. To avoid this from happening you know that you need to find a Social Studies tutor for your child. They will be able to assist your child with the learning materials and make sure that they are on the same level as the other children. Sometimes what it takes is a change of pace for your child to start seeing things in a different light.

Since Social Studies covers so many different topics it might feel a bit overwhelming or simply not interesting for your child. This is because they are looking through things in the lens that has been set up by their teacher. This might not be the best way for your child to look at this material. When our tutors are able to work with your child they will have them thinking outside of the box. Social Studies is important to our growth as people and if seen in the right light your child can really see all this class has to offer. In turn, they will become better students and better people overall. This class is not something that should be taken lightly as it is building a foundation for several other classes to come in the future.

If your child struggled in social studies when they were younger and are now transitioning into a higher grade, they will certainly still struggle. These problems are not just going to disappear unless they are addressed. There is no better way for the issues to be eliminated than with the help of someone who is a professional. Our tutors are college educated and several of them have experience teaching, so your child will essentially have their own personal tutor. Is this what you thought you were getting when you started looking for a “Social Studies tutor near me?” If not, then you should know that this is exactly what you will receive when your child is matched with one of our fantastic tutors.

Benefits of Hiring a Social Studies Tutor

Even if you do not plan on using Social Studies toward your career path, it is still important to have a strong understanding of the history of both the world and our nation. Social Studies will also help you in writing essays, reading comprehension as well as improving your ability to relate concepts to things going on in the real world. Either after reading all of the benefits or struggling to thrive in this course, you must be thinking, "I need Social Studies tutoring near me immediately!" This is you taking the first step toward becoming a better student and getting a fantastic understanding of this important subject matter. We need to know our history along with several other things that come along with Social Studies so that we are not only great students but also better people.

Social Studies tutoring is a necessity for anyone who wants to succeed or wants to see their children succeed with this course material. Like most things that have anything to do with school, this material is something that has to be learned. This means that everything that the teacher tells your student needs to be picked up and understood by your student for them to grasp Social Studies topics. If there is any disconnect between what the teacher is saying and what your student is learning it will be apparent. When your child does not catch on, they might see their grades start to plummet and this might mean they need to get held back. But in fact, what they need are the talents of one of our tutors. The classroom environment is not conducive to all types of learning styles. If your child is struggling in class it might be because they are not in the right position to succeed. What they need is a Social Studies tutor who is focused on them being the best student possible.

Our tutors will meet personally with your student in a one-on-one setting and then break down what your student is understanding and what they are not understanding. Your student will provide the syllabus and the graded materials from the class. This way our study skills tutor can prepare your student for what to expect from their teacher which will truly help them pass the class without any issues. When your child knows how their teacher is grading they will be able to play into that and get their needed grade. But they will not be doing this in a cheap manner, what they will be doing is learning the materials thoroughly. This will happen through personalized lesson plans created by a professional tutor exclusively for your child. This is the best way for your child to pass their class but also retain all of the information that they will surely use later on. If your child is struggling in any manner with this class, it behooves them to eliminate this problem. The last thing they want is for this to fester into something that gets out of control.

More often than not, Social Studies classes take a ton of reading and writing skills. If your child is not able to take what they read and turn it into a comprehensible essay, they are going to have problems. Although this is something that seems it is only related to English it is not and carries over to several other topics. Our tutors are aware of this fact and they know how to teach your child how to write strong academic essays. This goes beyond just writing on the blank page, it starts with preparation. They have to organize their thoughts and brainstorm so that they are able to develop a solid argument and then hit all of the points to stand by that argument. When they are able to do this with a qualified tutor they will get feedback from someone who has years of experience both as a tutor and a working professional.

HeyTutor is here to help you accomplish all of your Social Studies goals. We have a wealth of professionals in your area who are highly skilled in their field. They are ready to assist in any branch of Social Studies you are needing assistance with and giving you much-needed skills. All of our tutors are college educated and screened for excellence. We believe that learning should not be a monotonous task which is why each of our tutors has their own unique approach to teaching based on your personality. Reach out to one of our Social Studies tutors to capitalize on the learning experience of a lifetime.

Donald is an astounding history teacher with amazing results. I reached out to Donald about 3 weeks before the 2020 AP World History Exam. I went into the class knowing little to nothing about world history, as I had never taken the class, and absolutely no experience in writing essays. He taught me all the content I needed to know for the test and gave me very helpful materials as well as tips for writing my essays. He went through my essays very meticulously and graded them right in front of me so that I knew exactly what I did right and what I did wrong. And somehow, after 3 weeks and I took my exam, he managed to improve my level so much that I managed to get a 5 on the AP Exam! He is truly a one of a kind instructor, and I highly recommend.

I had hired Mr Broussard in March to tutor my daughter for AP World History. Within a period of 4-6 weeks, he did a fantastic job of covering key concepts, explaining framework to address the questions, and teaching how to structure the answer. While final results are yet to be announced, my daughter said she aced the exam. Many thanks to Mr. Broussard for his hard work and expertise in this subject. I would highly recommend his services.
