History is fun! I didn't think so when I was a kid. But I learned the secret in college and now I'm hooked -- and I promise, you will be too. After receiving a BA, MA and doing work towards a Phd in history at UCLA, I started writing history books (the "Nutshell Notes" series), taught American history in Lithuania and tutored learning disabled students. I now teach Western Civilization and Middle East History at Santa Monica College, conduct professional development classes for Social Studies teachers, and help students achieve outstanding scores on their AP history exams. My specialty: making complicated information simple and interesting. History is fun! I didn't think so when I was a kid.

Thank you, Miss Amanda! My student had an enjoyable time during her first session. You were prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and you listened to her understanding of the material and then worked on the areas she was not clear on. She said you were like Miss Honey in the musical Matilda, very sweet yet challenging her to the next level. Looking forward to learning about more World History!
Update: Thank you Amanda! I cannot tell you what an excellent teacher you are. My daughter has been struggling all year, met with you a handful of times, took her first exam last week and today she is on top of the world. She got an A! You are a miracle worker. I only wish I found you before last semester. Thank you Amanda R.!
Amanda has been amazing in just the few sessions my daughter has had for her AP History class. She has patience and really wants to help her understand and will give her as much time as she needs without rushing her. She is sweet and very accommodating. I can't say enough good things about her. My daughter's confidence has really shot up since she has been working with Amanda.
Amanda is tutoring our 10th grader in AP World History. Amanda is very patient and kind. Amanda comes thoroughly prepared with and uses all time productively! We are very pleased with her help and mentoring.
Amanda has been working with my AP Euro history student for several weeks and has done a great job in covering an immense amount of material and putting it into an understandable format. My student has much more confidence in her ability to retain and understand the subject matter. Amanda has lots of experience with the AP exam and material. Amanda is professional, great personality, always on time and easily accessible. We highly recommend her!!
Amanda was excellent! Was willing to meet me on my schedule, stayed late to help me, very patient, very clear, actually made material fun! Better than my famous College Professor!
Amanda is a great history tutor. My daughter said Amanda definitely knows history, she knows how to tie important points together so you can get the bigger picture as well as the details. Amanda is also very enthusiastic when explaining which shows she really enjoys the subject. So glad we found her.
We "hired" Amanda 3 days before my son's history final. Amanda dove right in and somehow managed to review the entire semester's highlights within 4 hours. Great tutor!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
