I am a highly qualified tutor for all History, Political Science and English classes. I have highly effective strategies for tutoring. I do not tell students the answer directly, I allow them to discover it on their own, through my guidance. This way the student will remember it. If I simply tell the answer, the student will not remember this information. I break down complicated concepts into simple everyday language which anyone can understand. I am a translator in this respect. I translate from academic language into normal English.

My Qualifications:

I have a Masters Degree in Middle East Politics from the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London. (Yes, that London.) I lived abroad in England for almost a year, and this experience helped me to understand history and politics much better than I did before.

My Bachelor's degree is in Political Science from California State University Northridge.

I have many years of experience tutoring for AP exams, for History and for Politics classes. I have worked with students from many different backgrounds.

I have traveled to 11 countries on 4 continents including: Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Sweden and Ireland. This life experience allows me to speak practically about many of the history subjects.

American History

I have a large amount of experience with American History. I have a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Cal State Northridge, and during that degree I earned an A in the honors section of American History I.

Also, I am studying to be a teacher, so I have to take several teaching exams. I have recently passed subtest 1 of the CSET Multiple Subject exam which includes American History among its subjects.

Furthermore, most of my private tutoring experience is in Political Science 1 which is a mix of American history and American politics. So, you could say I know this material very well and have gone over it many many times.

So, American History is fresh in my mind, and I am glad to help explain it other students.


I am well qualified to tutor for the CBEST exam, because I have actually passed the CBEST myself. Furthermore, I spent many hours helping my girlfriend study for the CBEST exam and she also passed!

I have a lot of experience with the specific subjects on the test as well: Reading, Writing, and Math. I have received A's in all three college level Math classes I took. Also, I was the Senior Reporter at the Daily Sundial, which is Cal State Northridge's college newspaper. So, I have excellent writing experience, and I have helped many students in private tutoring with their writing assignments.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a lot of experience with private tutoring, and I am very good when working with children.

I am studying to be a teacher and so I have already had to take a test for teacher credentialing. It is called the CSET, and I passed subtest 1 of the multiple subject exam. This section has many questions regarding how to teach children and how children learn. I studied this material for months.

So, the bottom line is, I have both test proven knowledge of teaching children, and I also have real world practical experience teaching children successfully. Thank you.


I have tutored many ESL students in the past 5 years. I have worked with students from many different backgrounds and cultures including Russian, Armenian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, and more. My students have always liked me a lot and appreciated my help.

I am patient and understanding with ESL students, because I know it can be very challenging.

Additionally, I am studying to be a teacher and have passed the CSET Multiple Subjects Exam Subtest 1. This test includes being tested on subject matter involving how to teach students. It also includes questions on how to teach ESL students specifically.

So, I have practical and certified experience in this area.

Government & Politics

My bachelor's degree is in Political Science from California State University Northridge. I have taken many, many classes in political science and have gotten A's in almost all of them.

I also did a Master's degree in Middle East Politics from the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London.

I have tutoring Political Science for about 6 years now, and my students have always had great success.

I am a helpful and caring tutor who makes sure the priority is on the student's learning. I break down difficult political concepts into everyday language which my students can understand.
