History Academic Tutoring
Whether Regents Global History or AP U.S. History, holistic academic tutoring requires three main elements: understanding the student’s skill, determining what a student has been taught, and seeking out what a student needs to be taught. This observation ensures that academic instruction is relevant, leading toward improved grades, increased confidence, and lower stress.
History Standardized Test Prep
History Standardized Test Prep requires that instructors understand the relationship between what students have been taught, what they remember, what they have mastered, and how all of this information is aligned to the upcoming test, whether the SAT, ACT, a Subject Test, or an AP Exam. Novella Prep Instructors are subject matter experts who create individual education plans to achieve specific goals. The key to higher scores on any standardized test is to master the content, that is, to know what is being asked of the student, in what format, and toward what purpose. Easy to say, and hard to do. That is why we are here. We bring decades of experience with an approach that monitors student growth over time to ensure that instruction works. Our approach is proven to work.
Have a Q about a DBQ?
Document-Based Questions are critically important for Regents tests as well as AP U.S. History, and beyond. To write a strong DBQ, a student must master the art of planning a response in a timely fashion and integrate evidence to support claims. Novella Prep Instructors understand the core attributes of a successful response, and integrate writing instruction as part of the academic advising packages, further refined during history tutoring for classes as well as standardized tests.
