Hello everyone! I am a rising sophomore at The George Washington University who is absolutely one of the most passionate people you will ever meet in terms of having an interest in the wonderful world of history! I am a double major in History and Art History and I plan to declare minors in Spanish and Political Science this coming year. I am looking for students to tutor during this summer for the June regents (I will be home May 9th). I love working with younger kids and I have lots of patience as I work with children with mental disabilities on a weekly basis. I have taken every AP History and Government class and I can tutor accordingly, (as well as for Regents classes). I tutor with an individualized approach in which I use extensive prep materials and some of my own helpful, supplemental readings. I love tutoring and to date I've tutored for AP World History, AP Art History, and AP US History with my students greatly improving their grades. Last summer, I tutored students for their US History and Global history regents, helping them to pass their tests. I have experience giving historical presentations and lectures at Syosset High School and Phi Alpha Theta History Honors Society's East-Regional Annual History Conference (I belong to this organization). I also have experience writing historical museum catalog articles for the Albert H. Small Americana Symposium.

To tell you a bit more about myself and my qualifications: in the AP history and government classes (again, I've taken all of them: AP European History, AP Comparative Government & Politics, AP United States Government & Politics, AP United States History & Government, and AP World History), I have earned grades of only A's and A+'s, with AP scores of only 4's and 5's in my history classes. I am interested in all social studies so my expertise does not end there! I have also taken courses and the corresponding AP exams for AP Human Geography and AP Art History (in each of these, I had an A+ average and scored a 5 on the AP exam). I also took the SAT Subject tests for World History and United States History on which I scored a 770/800 and a 750/800 respectively. On the Global History and Geography Regents I scored a 99% and on the United States History Regents I scored a 97%, so I am more than equipped (and delighted) to help out Regents level students as well as art students.

To sum up, I love history and working with kids and I can relate very well as I just passed through High School. I am extremely passionate about what I do and I aspire to become a history teacher. My students in the past have attained higher grades in their subject areas with my help. I can't wait to hear from you guys!

Joseph’s subjects

American History

I earned an A in AP United States History and a 4 on the AP Exam. I received a score of 750/800 on the SAT Subject Test and a score of 97% on the US History Regents.

Art History

I took AP Art History and attained an A+ in the class and a score of 5 on the AP exam. I frequently visit museums in New York City such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have traveled much of Europe and experienced the art of Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, and Croatia first hand!

European History

My favorite class in high school was AP European history where I earned an A in the class and a 5 on the AP exam. I've visited Europe several times and have a vast knowledge of European history from the class, my travels, and a considerable amount of my own reading.

Geography

I have an extensive knowledge of geography and took the AP Human geography class in which I scored a 5 on the AP exam and an A+ in the class.

Government & Politics

This past year I had the pleasure of taking both AP US Government and AP Comparative Government, and I earned A's in both classes. I now have a wide knowledge of governments from around the world and our own! My AP scores are pending for these classes (I should get them in early July).

Piano

I took piano lessons for 9 years, and I have played in many recitals. I also attended the Long Island BOCES Music Summer Program. I played piano in the Syosset High School Jazz Band for 3 years. I play mostly early Jazz and Ragtime. I am looking to take on beginner piano students in my area. This is a beautiful instrument worth learning. I have loved it ever since the day I started playing.

Regents

For the United States History Regents and Global History & Geography Regents, I have studied closely several past exams and have taken each of these tests for school(scoring a 97% on US History and a 99% on global history). Therefore, I have both a working knowledge of the test formats, types of questions asked on each test, and experience taking the tests for myself in the last 2 years (for high school). I have done extensive readings in each of these subjects and have taken the higher level AP Exams and SAT Subject tests (scoring a 4 on AP US History and a 750/800 on the subject test and a 4 on AP World History and a 770/800 on that subject test). I have experience working with children who have disabilities from volunteer work, and therefore, I have a lot of patience.

Social Studies

I have taken a great many history, government, economy, and interaction classes in school. I have attained only the highest grades in these classes, and I thus, have a great knowledge of human interactions in world context and themes over time. I have also done my own readings. I have taken AP Art History, AP Comparative Government, AP European History, AP Human Geography, AP Macroeconomics, AP US Government, AP US History, AP World History, and a unique connections class called Modern Asian Experience. In taking all of these classes, I have developed strong written skills in this subject area, and I have tutored students who've needed help with essay-writing for Social Studies. There is nothing that I am more passionate about than the world of Social Studies!

World History

World history is a fascinating subject, which teaches us to make connections and think about one country's history in the context of a global picture! I took AP World history where I attained an A+ and a 4 on the AP exam. I have read extensively on the subject and took the SAT subject test, on which I scored a 770/800. I also scored a 99% on the Global History & Geography Regents.
