GCSE History Private Tuition
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – Santayana, Harvard Philosopher
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. GCSE 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 GSCE History is for this reason useful to students intent pursuing a number of different career paths: law, business, the civil service and journalism, for example.
At LCC Learning our private tuition in GCSE History is carried out by enthusiastic teachers who are passionate about their subject and highly experienced in leading their students to examination success. We cover each exam board and all of the modules of the GSCE History syllabus, from the medieval period to the 20th Century. In 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. Through private tuition, they learn to view history from a variety of perspectives: social, political, economic and personal. LCC Learning tutors 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 GCSE History. Our tutors aim to develop in their students an ability to argue for their own opinions in a vigorous and lucid style.
