GCSE History Tutors

History can be intimidating. After all, it encompasses anything and everything which came before we did and as you can imagine, that’s a whole lot of stuff for one mind to grasp. English is largely based around a refined writing skill, whilst maths and the sciences focus on facts and figures. History, however, encompasses both of these, making it a potential source of dread for the GCSE History student. Seemingly endless reams of names, dates and places can evoke fear in even the most fearsome of academic warriors. The thing about fear is that it doesn’t stand a chance against the force of education.
Surely, if any subject is to be enjoyed it would be one which tells of courageous battles, technological booms and grisly executions. That episode of Game of Thrones you enjoyed so much the other night? With a little perspective, your History revision journey could take you to some equally thrilling places. Perhaps you’re unsure that you can find this perspective without some help, and that’s where Tutor Desk comes in. Our private GCSE History tutors will be sure to light the same passion for History in you that they have themselves.

 

PREPARING FOR BATTLE

PLAN OF ATTACK!

Revision is at its most effective when undertaken gradually, creating a bank of knowledge that can withstand the test of time. So, it is crucial that you prepare nice and early rather than attempting a last minute cramming session. Don’t worry about procrastinating, our expert private History tutors can help you to break down the workload and impose a fool proof time schedule to guide you on your way. In order to ease you into it your private tutor will help you to identify the topics you are most comfortable with and open with those. This will provide a warm up before they move on to aid you in the face off with your more challenging adversaries.

CONQUER THAT TIME LIMIT.

Time will pass regardless of how intently you monitor it, so why waste precious seconds glancing at the clock when those seconds could have the potential to push you up and over a grade boundary? Instead, our private History tutors can make sure that your skills are so well matched to time limits that you will be completely cool, collected, and confident in your ability to work to the impending deadline. Specific time goals can help you to structure your thinking and ensure that you’re not hearing that “time’s up” alarm while you’re still composing your final essay question.

TRAINING FOR BATTLE

Charging straight into an exam without the correct strategy and preparation is probably going to end in disaster. First time around you’re bound to make mistakes, and that’s fine. However, if your first time around comes on exam day itself, that’s not so fine. Luckily for you, Tutor Desk’s private History tutors will arrive with an armoury of past papers in order to get those mistakes firmly out of the way. Your tutor will have a thorough understanding of what an examiner will be looking for, meaning that they can not only mark your papers effectively but also talk you through any areas which need work.

YOUR MEMORY IS A WEAPON

Let’s take a trip back in time to the seemingly endless reams of names, dates and places we mentioned earlier. If you have a photographic memory then you probably don’t need to worry, but if not then you’re probably going to need a method for keeping that mental log in place. Our private tutors can help you to compile a list of these important keywords, which can serve as the basis for testing to see how much of that information you have actually absorbed.

 

All in all, GCSE History is definitely not the undefeatable enemy you might initially expect. With the right tutoring and self-belief, you can not only attain greatness academically, but also come to view History with the passion and admiration it deserves. After all, historic alterations would render the world as we know it a very different place. Don’t believe us? Just have a watch of Back to the Future or The Butterfly Effect. How could something so heavily defining of all things be anything less than riveting?
