    We had a very positive experience with Alissa as a tutor for our pod of 5th grade boys from January - June 2020. She cared a lot about the boys and worked hard to create meaningful activities for them. The pod experience was invaluable … More for all of our families during a difficult year and we were so grateful to have found this partnership! We also want to appreciate Craig for helping to match us with a tutor on very short notice after we had cycled through a few folks who were not able to see the commitment through. Thanks for sticking with us!

    Dusty was the exact person we needed to help our child finish out the school year. So grateful to him for the way he steadily encouraged her and helped her stay on track and organized. He is flexible, responsive to our needs/schedule as … More a family, and a delight to be with. We are also thankful that Craig at Themba Tutors really "gets it" and partnered us with such a wonderful tutor who was a great fit for our girl.

    My child worked with Gillian D virtually for math enrichment. She is an excellent teacher. She took time to understand my child's specific learning style and provided tools that would be engaging. She was kind and empathetic- really … More made it her goal to connect with my child and build trust and rapport. My child started the school year with confidence and without the typically "brain-drain" that occurs over the summer, thanks to Gillian.

    I am going into my second year as a Themba tutor. I have met so many great individuals while working for this company. Craig and the rest of the Themba team do such an excellent job picking and choosing Themba tutors that suit each client's … More individual needs! I look forward to meeting new tutors and clients in the 2021-2022 school year!

    Our son started in a new high school, 100% remote, and was really struggling with Latin and Physics. I found Themba Tudors online and had an initial call with Craig, who was very knowledgeable, responsive, and found 2 amazing tutors for … More us. Both the Latin and the physics tutors were fantastic, connected with my son really well and helped him go from 'failing' grade to 'honors'! I will for sure continue using (and recommending!) Themba Tutors. Thank you, C, K, and W!

  • Global History Tutors, Themba Tutors Susan Wong ★★★★★ a year ago
    Giulia Mercuri is a great Italian tutor! She was very responsive and accessible. Giulia put a ton of effort into preparing for each session and really helped our son with test preparation and projects. We are grateful that she was able … More to help, especially since our son did not receive any live teaching during COVID. We are happy that she was referred to us!
  • Global History Tutors, Themba Tutors Christine Gennetti ★★★★★ a year ago
    As an adult student diagnosed with a learning disability during grad school, I knew I needed help dealing with my Master's program's demanding workload. I was seriously considering dropping out when I was referred to Themba Tutors. … More I was paired up with a wonderful tutor, Julie, who was a total lifesaver. I learned many techniques that I can utilize in the future as I embark on the next phase of my career.
    I can wholeheartedly say after working with Themba for two years that I would not have finished my program without this organization. And I am so thankful I selected them.
  • Global History Tutors, Themba Tutors Fabiola FITZPATRICK ★★★★★ a year ago
    We were introduced to a wonderful tutor: Mcedwyn. He and our son, a freshman in college, worked well together. As a result, our son’s grades significantly improved. The tutor taught our son subject content and various methods to effectively … More study for quizzes and exams. Our son was also taught time management and organization. My son’s experience with the tutor made the first year of college a less intimidating experience.
  • Global History Tutors, Themba Tutors Jude Eugene ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been with our tutor, Cailin Schiller, for two years, from 5th - 7th grade. She started as an executive functioning tutor with my daughter. From the start, she demonstrated a depth of expertise and a selective use of techniques skillfully … More adapted to my daughter’s ADHD and Math disability. Cailin made Math accessible and understandable to her in a way that even her teachers had not been able to do. She differentiated reading, writing and math tasks and assignments to tailor them to my daughter’s unique learning differences. Not only did it have an effect on her grades and her work efficiency, but she finally could do her work with less anxiety. Even my daughter’s teachers used Cailin’s guidance to modify their work with her. But most importantly, she became my daughter’s favorite resource. I can’t say how invaluable Cailin has been to my daughter’s progress and well-being. I’d recommend her a million times over. She is a gem.

    I'm so glad we were referred to Themba Tutors. After a great initial conversation to learn our needs, we were connected with an excellent tutor, Felicia, who is helping our high school daughter learn better organizational and executive … More skills. Highly recommended.
  • Global History Tutors, Themba Tutors Fara Jones ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Themba Tutors provided a leaning specialist that was a perfect fit for my daughter. I told them what we were looking for and they delivered. Our tutor is responsive and flexible and makes it easy for my daughter to reach out to her own … More her own, which gives her an added sense of responsibility over her learning. As a therapist myself, I now regularly recommend Themba to my patients. A much needed and well provided service to the community!!

    The tutors at Themba are fantastic! Caitlyn McNeill helped our son academically, but also with getting organized in every subject, which he so desperately needed. She offered great advice and useful strategies that helped our son become … More a more successful student. We are using Themba tutors again this year for our daughter.

    Paul Smith at Themba has been an exceptional tutor for my son, both in terms of teaching the subject matter and teaching how best to approach the process of learning math and executing assignments. We feel very fortunate to be working with … More Paul.
  • Global History Tutors, Themba Tutors Monica Alzate ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were very lucky to have found Edwouine Swift, my son's therapist through Themba Tutors. Thomas is 12 years old, and it is extremely difficult to get him to write. Edwouine just works her magic with him, he adores her and is so … More eager to follow her guidance. I have no doubt she will be a positive driving force in his academic future.

What Is Global History?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in Global History for high school and college students. 

 

 

HISTORY OF THE WORLD: EVERY YEAR

What Is Global History?

 

Global history, world history, or transnational history is a field of study that emerged as a distinct academic field in the 1980s. It examines history from a global perspective. It is not to be confused with comparative history, which, like global history, deals with multiple cultures and nations, but not globally. Global history looks for common patterns that emerge across all cultures. World historians use a thematic approach, with two major focal points: integration and difference.

Why Study Global History?

Global history embraces all humanity, not just certain nations, ethnic groups, or civilizations. Why should schools ask teachers and students to investigate a subject that encompasses the whole world and its peoples? Global history emphasizes three rationales for investigating the human past on a global scale.

 

 

Knowing Who We Are

 

The study of global history is the broadest approach to who we are as individuals and members of different groups. Exploring how humankind has changed since our ancestors walked the earth is the best way to grapple with the question of what makes us special and unique concerning other living species. National history teaches us what is distinctive about a particular land and people. Global history throws light on human beings’ distinctive characteristics and how their thought, behavior, and interactions have changed over time.

 

The National Standards for History remind us:

 

Historical memory is the key to self-identity, seeing one’s place in the stream of time, and connectedness with all of humankind. We are part of an ancient chain, and the long hand of the past is upon us—for good or ill—just as our hands will rest on our descendants for years to come. Denied knowledge of one’s roots and one’s place in the great stream of human history, the individual is deprived of the fullest sense of self and of that sense of shared community on which one’s fullest personal development, as well as responsible citizenship, depends.

 

In short, global history helps us think about what it means to be human and the characteristics that all humans have in common.

Preparing to Live in the World

 

Global history helps prepare young people for college studies, international experience, and civic life participation. It helps get them ready for the roles they will inevitably play as citizens of their country and the world. A “global citizen” is simply a national citizen who knows and cares about the history and contemporary affairs of all humankind, a person who can in some measure think, speak, and write about world issues and problems with intelligence and confidence.

 

Most of us are generally aware of world interconnections and interdependence. We know that the internet allows people to trade stocks at blinding speed, that hundreds of millions of people simultaneously watch the Olympic Games, and that the threat of global warming requires cooperation among all governments. We know that we live in a border-crossing, migration-prone, multiple identity-taking world than vague. Addressing today’s world conditions, however, requires more than a vague awareness of these realities. Global history helps us better understand how and why the world got to be the way it is. It gives attention to the histories of other nations and civilizations and the differences among them. But it particularly emphasizes the history, problems, and challenges that humans have shared simply because they are humans.

 

 

Attaining Cultural Literacy on a World Scale

 

Global history contributes to our cultural literacy. Unlike other species, human beings have the gift of language that is symbolic of thinking and communication. That means humans also have what global history calls collective learning. It’s the ability to learn from one another and transmit knowledge from one generation to the next.

 

Communicating in any language requires that we share common knowledge, information, vocabulary, and conceptual tools. We need shared knowledge and understandings partly because we live in a world where people in specialized occupations and professions tend to use special words, terms, and concepts that some people might not understand.

 

Making global history a core subject in schools broadens the fund of knowledge that we all share. It helps us speak and write to one another in clearer ways. This does not mean that global history courses should be the same in every school district. But societies should aim for general agreement regarding the common stock of both world-scale knowledge and historical thinking skills that children should possess when they graduate from high school.

 

All past societies that we know of have had an endowment of collective knowledge. Global history is shared knowledge that citizens, whatever their country of allegiance, need to function on our planet in the twenty-first century. The complexity of human interrelations today means that cultural literacy must be global in range and depth.

 

Facing History creates resources to empower teachers and students to think critically about pivotal moments in history.

Why Do Students Struggle with Global History?

 

Global history spans prehistoric times all the way to the present. Needless to say, that’s a lot of material! And because there’s so much to cover, the pace in class can be fast. 

 

Many students struggle with organizing a huge amount of content, especially when it involves countries they may not be familiar with. Some also find it challenging to understand the details but also step away and see the bigger picture. As a result, students may not always see how events are related to each other or their cause-and-effect.

 

Doing well in global history requires more than just recall of dates and information. Students must read critically and analyze passages and then defend their arguments with evidence using their written and oral communication skills.
