Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

💼 Where can I find private tuition for humanities subjects?

When looking for private tuition, you have several options. One of the most common ways is by going to tuition centres. If, on the other hand, you want to learn from the comfort of your own home, you have the option of taking online lessons through a platform that offers private tuition, such as FindTutors.

📚 What types of humanities subjects are there on FindTutors?

Humanities is a broad term that encompases many different subjects. Among the most important branches of humanities are: law, history, literature and philosophy. However, there are many more types of humanities tutors you can find on our website.

👧🏻 How can I find private humanities lessons for children?

You can find humanities lessons for children on our website by using the filters. However, you should bear in mind that not all humanities subjects are taught to children, most are aimed at secondary school or university students.

👨🏻‍🏫  What is the most common type of humanities tutor?

One of the most sought-after private tutors for humanities subjects are history tutors. This is because from an early age, children and teenagers study the history of the UK and later, world history. Another highly demanded type of humanities tutor is English language and literature tutors.

💲 What is the price of private tuition in humanities?

The price of private tuition always depends on several factors, although the final decision will be made by your tutor. It is normal that, if you want to take the lessons at home, the tutor will charge you a small supplement for the journey. 


It is also common for some tutors, as they gain experience, to ask for more money for their lessons. Don't get overwhelmed, take a look at the profiles of the tutors and choose the one you like best for your humanities lessons, it's just a matter of talking it over!

Humanities subjects

Find Humanities lessons

As you may know, there are many branches of humanities which you can study. The most popular ones tend to be: law, philosophy, history and language and literature. If you are thinking about studying one of these subjects and want to find out more, here are some of the things you will learn:

Law lessons

You will learn about the rules and norms that regulate how people live together. These lessons are mainly divided into public law and private law. Law is taught at university and most students who decide to study law do so with the goal of pursuing a legal career. Legal careers include barristers, solicitors and paralegals 

Philosophy lessons

Philosophy is a discipline full of reflections on life, focusing on human beings and the nature that surrounds them. Philosophy seeks answers about existence in general and, in particular, about aspects such as: beauty, knowledge, language, the mind, morality, reason and religion. 

History lessons

Through history you will learn about all the events of the past, related to humanity. History lessons are taught from an early age for this very reason: it is important to know what happened in the past in order to understand how it affects society today and how to avoid repeating the same mistakes. 

Language and literature lessons

Literature, considered one of the fine arts, is a form of artistic expression. For centuries, authors have been expressing themselves both orally and in writing to express their emotions. Of all the branches of humanities, it is the one most closely related to art, so if you like literary genres such as poetry, prose or theatre, this is the ideal choice for you.

Tips for finding tutors

Once you have decided to study humanities, it is likely that you will need the help of a private tutor for your lessons. Whether you are a primary school, secondary school or university student, you can use the filters to find tutors who adapt to your needs. There are also lessons for adults and companies available on our website. 

On this page you will find all types of humanities tutors, however, if you have a more specific type of tutor in mind you can search for it on our website. For example, if you want a children’s history tutor, you can find it on this page.


Our advice is not to stick with the first tutor you like: contact several tutors, get to know them a bit and see what chemistry there is between you. There may be one that you love at first, but you may meet someone else who is a better match for you. Apart from looking at the tutor's reviews, contacting them is important because there are many who may have few reviews, not because they are bad tutors, but because they have only been on the platform for a short time.
