The Past Is History Tutors

Jan 3, 2008
One subject in school that requires quite a bit of learning is History. It has been said to be one of the hardest subjects in school. The reason being that history has so many dates and events that it can be very overwhelming at times. So it can be understandable that your child will need to have help in this subject. But the tutor does not have to be someone you hired, it can be you. All history is, is learning the dates and the events that go with the dates. Unlike Math there is no figuring out anything and in English, there is no proper usage of anything. It is strictly remembering dates and events.

There is a great way to help tutor your child. Find out what section they are on, if they are studying World War II then read the section in the book that they are studying and then make flash cards. Write the date on one side and the event on the other. This way you can test your child both ways, they can learn the dates first and then the events or you can call out an event and they can give you the date.

It really can be fun learning about history. Every year something new happens and if you took a look at your textbook when you were a student and your 's, there are probably hundreds of extra pages. That is a blessing and a curse, a blessing that your child can see everything that has happened in old history and in current history but it just means more to learn for your child.

You can make fun games out of tutoring your child. You can play the memory game . You can have your child match the dates with the events. Sometimes your child just needs someone to quiz them, learning the material yourself is great and they should learn to do that but maybe once a week you can sit with them and see where they are having any trouble and then helping them out.

You can call the teacher and see where your child is having the trouble and see if you can offer your child a more specific spot to tutor them. They may have the facts straight but cannot remember dates on the Civil War, this way you don't have to confuse them by teaching them the stuff they already have confidence in knowing. Try to sick with the problem areas.

Don't go behind your child's back and ask the teacher how they are doing unless your child needs help. Have a look at their homework and tests and seeing they are in need of help. Remember, you already went to school so they need to learn the material not you. You can only help so much but your child needs to learn the material, they are the ones that are taking the test.
