World History SAT Subject Test Tutoring

The World History Subject Test gauges a student's knowledge of the broad sweep of world civilization. A student with a strong background in historical events, dates, and periods might consider taking the World History test.

Our World History Tutoring Program

Our approach to the World History Subject Test is educational and individualized. We develop a program tailored not only to the precise historical periods a student may have covered at school but also to the degree to which the student can apply the previously studied material.

Our tutors cover the most significant material that a student is expected to know. By proceeding chronologically, students can observe the different civilizations in each era in a comparative way. Homework and timed, full-length practice tests provide opportunities for the exercise and refinement of the skills emphasized during one-on-one tutoring sessions.
