US Government and Politics

American Government and Politics introduces and examines key political ideas, institutions, policies, interactions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the political culture of the United States. Beginning with the Constitutional underpinnings of the United States, this course leads students through sections covering political beliefs and behaviors, political parties, interest groups and mass media, institutions of national government, public policy, and civil rights and liberties. Through these concepts students learn to assess the causes and consequences of political events. Students must also learn to analyze data and interpret documents such as the Federalist Papers to development evidence-based political arguments.

The Learning Island provides private one-on-one tutoring in all aspects of the social sciences. Our tutors work with students and their parents to assess where each student is right now and to develop a customized lesson plan tailored to his or her needs. We help by streamlining historical narratives and breaking down complex historical and political concepts into manageable pieces that students can easily understand. Tutors take apart daunting economic models and explain them in clear, straightforward ways.

We provide students with the tools to read smarter and more critically, study better, and make the most productive use of their homework time. Tutors also help students learn how to research, write, and revise papers and other assignments. Finally, we provide comprehensive reviews and study sessions for exams. Whether a student is seriously struggling or simply needs a little extra help with a difficult class, we can help them improve and grow to be their best.
