I love to tutor because, quite simply, I am great at it! My approach to teaching achieves positive results and nothing is more rewarding, both for myself and the student, than success. I have over seven years experience teaching and tutoring History at the college level, especially Freshmen just out of secondary school. The high demand for my services at the university during office hours, which are reserved for personal one-on-one tutoring and review, convinced me to tutor professionally.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in European history and trained to teach World history as well as U.S. history. I have an excellent familiarity with the college board exams in these subjects. Whether it is AP U.S. History, or AP World History, or AP European history, I have found that the key to success is as much about learning how to approach the question as it is knowledge of the topic being tested. In other words, I do not lecture, that is for the classroom. My students will train in actual questions from actual exams. They will gain a familiarity with not only the exam itself but all the topics and periods most commonly tested. Most importantly, they will learn how to read the questions for clues which will aid them in the process of elimination which is the most beneficial skill the student can acquire. In addition, students will learn how to, and produce themselves, essay outlines on the major topics most commonly presented on the writing sections of the AP exams. In short, I make my students into expert test takers as much as experts in the history itself. Not to mention that this material is, indeed, so fascinating in itself.
I have a high degree of confidence in my ability to tutor and improve your test score. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied I will refund the bill for that session. I can be very flexible with my approach and if a student has a very specific area or subject they wish to focus on that can certainly be arranged. I have a generous and flexible eight hour cancellation policy and I also offer makeup sessions.
I can travel to tutor students in the convenience of their own homes anywhere in the Los Angeles County, including the San Fernando Valley and Santa Monica. In addition, I can tutor students at different locations such as a Starbucks or a local library.
I greatly look forward to hearing from you and achieving the rewards of success together. Many thanks.
I am a Ph.D. candidate in European history. I have many years experience teaching European history at the undergraduate collegiate level. I have a high familiarity with the AP exam in European history and take the exam annually.
