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.

Great Results!! — 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 ...
