History Tuition.

Headway can provide history tuition at any stage of your child’s education. A history tutor from Headway will be a fully qualified teacher and an expert in History. We can provide tutoring at home or an online history tutor if that suits your child better.

History is a fascinating subject and one which teaches us more than simply facts and figures about the past. Studying history is a great way to improve your critical thinking, analysis and writing skills. For this reason, it is a popular subject with students at GCSE and A level and well respected by universities and employers as it demonstrates high academic accomplishment. However, honing these analysis and writing skills whilst simultaneously having to digest large quantities of dates and facts can be overwhelming and some children struggle with the scope of the history curriculum. A Headway history tutor can make this process easier by guiding your child on their individual learning journey. Individual attention focused on your child’s specific needs is not possible within a whole class of children at school and it can make a huge difference to your child’s progress.

Types of History Tuition 

Many families are looking for a history tutor to work with their child in the comfort of their own home. We offer this in many areas across the country. A history tutor will first assess your child then plan and deliver bespoke history tuition at home at a time to suit you. If you prefer to work online or you are not within one of our areas, we also provide the same high quality service with an online history tutor.

 GCSE History Tuition

Depending on the exam board, the GCSE history syllabus can look very different but whichever board the school chooses, your child will study a number of different topics such as; Health and the People, Modern World History, Tudors and Stuarts, Migration to Britain. These are a few examples but attest to the wide range of topics. Some focus on a specific time period, others focus on a theme over a longer period of time. All topics will require deep analysis of facts and evidence and require thought and discussion of causes and effects, finding links and identifying themes.

A history tutor from Headway will tailor your child’s learning to their specific exam board and will carefully assess your child’s progress to ensure they receive bespoke history tuition to enable them to reach their potential. In preparation for the GSCE examination, a history tutor can coach your child in exam technique ensuring that they have adequate experience in exam questions and therefore the confidence to do their best. We can provide you with an AQA History tutor, an OCR History tutor, an Edexcel History tutor, an IB History tutor, WJEC History Tutor or a SQA National 5 History tutor.

A Level History Tuition

A level history is a great choice of subject; studying history gives you a set of skills which are widely sought after in higher education and opens up a range of possible job sectors. It is however, a challenging course and the demands are far greater than that at GCSE level. Students will be expected to use greater analytical skills and write at length throughout the course and in examinations. It can be difficult to keep up with the constant reading and essay writing required. An A level history tutor can be invaluable, giving your child one to one feedback on their writing and allowing them to make much faster progress.

We will provide you with an expert, highly trained history tutor who will be with your child every step of the way to ensure they reach their potential. We cover all exam boards and can provide you with either an AQA History tutor, an OCR History tutor, an Edexcel History tutor, an IB History tutor, WJEC History Tutor or a SQA Higher History tutor.

Clare has been an outstanding A level psychology tutor for my daughter who was negatively affected by last year's algorithm results.Clare's knowledge was taken as read, so the real value she brought was sharing very valuable techniques and perhaps even more importantly the confidence and belief she instilled.Oh and my daughter loved working with her! Thank you Clare

Fearghal is brilliant! I wish all teachers were like this. His lessons are so much fun but he’s very astute and doesn’t leave kids behind.

She has been a great teacher for Betsy, organised, on time, patient. She really is good at explaining and makes it all clear. Highly recommended.
Jade’s teaching style inspired my son to do better. She quickly identified gaps in his knowledge and worked systematically with him, always going above and beyond. Her high energy remained intact during their remote sessions too - within months he felt more confident and started taking pride in his work. Facing new math challenges became fun and his mid-year performance review jumped to above expectations for Y5. Jade is amazing and we, as a family, highly recommend her.

Rosie is so warm and friendly, she always makes learning how to cook new things fun and easy for my girls. We really liked how she incorporated seasonal cooking and the history, or origin, of certain recipes into each lesson!

Sarah was a brilliant 11+ tutor for my daughter. She is kind and gently encouraging and makes lessons challenging and enjoyable. Sarah was also flexible about accommodating my requests to cover specific topics /areas, and always put together well-thought-through lesson plans with excellent and interesting resources. My daughter felt a real bond with Sarah and looked forward to the tutoring sessions every week. She was genuinely sad when they ended.

Molly not only immediately connected with both my daughters, but made each tutoring session fun and engaging! She was also wonderful at keeping us informed of their progress and tailoring sessions to meet each of their needs. Honesty, using Headway Tutors has been the best decision we ever made and both our girls are now confident in Maths and 11+ ready!

Jade has worked with my daughter over her 11+ exams and beyond. I couldn’t rate her highly enough. My daughter is a worrier and has moved from struggling to confident and is well within the expected level for her age, under jades tutorship. Jade genuinely has a passion for maths and it comes through in all she does. Can I give her a 10 out five stars ⭐️?

My daughter has been working with Anthony for almost two months now. He is very flexible in terms of timings and has helped her enormously with her maths. Her confidence has grown and she is better placed to take her GCSE this coming summer (whatever form it may take!!)

We searched for support for our late summer born boys and applied to Headway Tutors this year. Thanks to them we met a very good teacher. Katie is a knowledgable teacher who is customizing her teaching style according to child's needs and approach to learning. She's working with tangible targets for each session and updating them according to child's needs. She's very creative and motivating all through the sessions.

Rebecca is a superb tutor. If only you could clone her. She’s the perfect mix of supporting and pushing, teaching and challenging. It’s obvious she genuinely loves teaching. I’ve also been impressed with Headway Tutors. Communication is consistent and I feel valued.

Exceeded my expectations! I was not sure what to expect with a live virtual classroom and it is well set up, but for it to be successful, it needs a teacher show can effectively get kids engaged in the session. To say Brigid has been able to get my daughter involved and engaged is an understatement. Her teaching style is enthusiastic and the energy transfers to my daughter during the lesson. I hope there is a way to continue lessons once my daughter's school re-opens.
