A Level History Private Tuition
“The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there“ – LP Hartley, author of The Go-Between
History teaches students to examine critically various sources of evidence in seeking to produce credible explanations for past events. Studying history improves their writing skills and encourages them to set out their arguments in a clear and coherent manner. A top mark in A Level History is thus useful to students intent pursuing a number of different career paths: law, business, the civil service and journalism, for example. The study of history broadens the mind, producing young women and men capable of reflective engagement with a world that is increasingly cosmopolitan, interconnected and diverse.
At LCC Learning our private tuition covers each exam board and all of the modules of the A Level History syllabus, from the Medieval period to the 20th Century. It is carried out by enthusiastic teachers who are passionate about their subject and highly experienced in leading their students to examination success. In A Level History private tuition our students are taught not only the important facts, figures and dates relevant to the periods of history which they are studying, but also how to marshal what they have learnt into plausible and interesting historical analysis. They are encouraged to engage in independent research, to read widely beyond the textbooks and to develop views that are informed by recent historical scholarship. By weighing up the opposing arguments offered by different historians, our students learn habits of critical awareness that will be crucial to their future success at university and in the world of work. Through private tuition, they discover how to view history from a variety of perspectives: social, political, economic and personal. Our LCC Learning teachers provide in their private tuition sessions advice to students on how to produce well-argued and well-written coursework, as well as how to hone their examination technique in order to achieve their full potential in A Level History.
