AP United States History (APUSH) Tutoring
For students looking to learn more about United States history while greatly improving their reading and writing skills, there is no better course to take than AP United States History. Known by many as APUSH, AP United States History is one of the more rigorous courses offered in the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum. However, with this rigor comes great edification. In a single year, students will learn the entire history of the United States, starting with discovery of the New World by the Europe and ending with the Obama Administration. Along the way, students will learn how to analyze and contextualize historical events, write analytical essays based on historical documents and free-response prompts, and apply critical thinking skills to primary and secondary historical sources.
As APUSH covers an extensive amount of material, students can expect to have significant reading and writing homework daily. The course covers 9 historical periods and 6 themes, which are as follows:
Period 1: Years 1497 – 1607 Period 2: Years 1607 – 1754 Period 3: Years 1754 – 1800 Period 4: Years 1800 – 1848 Period 5: Years 1844 – 1877 Period 6: Years 1865 – 1898 Period 7: Years 1890 – 1945 Period 8: Years 1945 – 1980 Period 9: Years 1980 – Present
- Theme 1: American and National Identity (NAT)
- Theme 2: Politics and Power (POL)
- Theme 3: Work, Exchange, and Technology (WXT)
- Theme 4: Culture and Society (CUL)
- Theme 5: Migration and Settlement (MIG)
- Theme 6: Geography and the Environment (GEO)
- Theme 7: America in the World (WOR)
To complete APUSH with good grades and score high marks on the AP test, students must have in-depth knowledge of each of these periods and themes in United States history. Students must also learn to translate this knowledge into critical essays and apply it to multiple choice questions, as the AP test is comprised of three essay sections — a short answer essay, a document-based essay, and a long-from essay — as well as a multiple-choice section.
While APUSH undoubtedly improves students’ historical knowledge, reading and writing proficiency, and critical thinking skills, the course itself can be difficult for many to balance alongside other high school coursework. For those who expect to receive a good grades and 5 on the AP test, extra review and test practice are vital. With one-on-one APUSH tutoring, students can improve their understanding of specific historical areas while honing their skills in essay writing and multiple-choice test taking to improve their class grades and better prepare for the AP test.
