Getting Students Excited About History!

It helps if the tutor is enthusiastic about the subject and she or he should most preferably be armed with anecdotes about historical figures and events. Tell them how history impacts the world today and how history is being made every minute. I show them how studying History fosters critical thinking and knowing about history can help them create favourable impressions of themselves in public events and social gatherings. I also let them know there are different types of histories and history has theories too!
