History Common Entrance Tutors

The history paper of the Common Entrance is an exam that no child is able to prepare for without the right guidance. Not only does it test a candidate’s knowledge of a certain period, it requires them to remember timelines and important events and apply them in a given context. In short, it’s a tough exam that requires practice and precision, both of which can be provided by a Tavistock history tutor.

We make the History Common Entrance simple

It’s no secret that the Common Entrance is daunting for every 13 year-old, and the history paper certainly turns the heat up a notch. Introducing the concept of sources for the first time, it’s easy for younger students to feel intimidated. At Tavistock Tutors, all our Common Entrance history tutors are highly experienced in preparing children for potential obstacles, so no student will ever get a nasty surprise on exam day.

Our history tuition matches every parent’s goals

No matter what school a parent has got their eye on, all our history tuition is geared towards each child passing the Common Entrance exam. We handpick our tutors through a rigorous selection process, so that we can be sure we’re providing the best teaching methods for younger children. Learning how to decode questions and answer coherently is as important as having the fundamental knowledge, and all our tutors will work hard to make sure every student approaches the paper in the best possible way.

Our prices start at £40 and increase based on the tutor’s experience, so every parent can hand-select a tutor that they’re happy with. The history Common Entrance doesn’t have to be complicated, so take a look at the profiles below and book a history tutor today.

Later, during my undergraduate degree in modern languages I participated in a tandem scheme with French and Spanish ERASMUS students, which involved one-on-one conversational language practice. Upon graduating from university I joined a specialist I.B. tutoring agency based in London ......
