Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Melinda B.

43 History lessons

My son has always had a strong interest and aptitude for history but AP European History was becoming unwieldy. From that day on, Preston would walk into our home each Sunday afternoon cheerfully calling out, "It's a great day for history!" And it always was. Every member of our family would bustle quietly around the study session gaining insight. (I was a history major in college, and he connected concepts that were in my senior thesis.)
SATOMI M.

6 History lessons

At first session I was blown away by how much he knows the history. I could point out the world map and ask him the history of the country and he would know. He is very gentle and warm person and makes it fun for learning. I originally came from Japan and was surprised that Darrell knows real well about the Japanese history. It feels like that he has the knowledge of an encyclopedia of history. I would highly recommend Darrell for history and English tutor.
Motoko N.

87 History lessons

As a result, my son received 5 on the test. He was so happy with Bob that he asked me to have him teach/tutor AP US History this year instead of signing him up for an online class to prepare for the exam. Bob is a fantastic history teacher. I know he graded AP US history exams before, so he had a ton of great test-taking tips, too. My son, who is not a fan of history/social studies in general, told me he learned a TON from Bob and is confident he will do well in the exam.
