About Morgan


Bio

I teach because it allows me to share my love of learning. I'm most satisfied when I can awaken a new interest in a “boring” subject or show a student a new way of looking at a problem. I get excited when students tell me that they see connections that weren't there before or that they finally understand something that has always baffled them. I try to bring passion to everything I teach, and I work hard to push my students to their highest potential.

I teach because it allows me to share my love of learning. I'm most satisfied when I can awaken a new interest in a “boring” subject or show a student a new way of looking at a problem. I get excited when students tell me that they see connections that weren't there before or that they finally understand something that has always baffled them. I try to bring passion to everything I teach, and I work hard to push my students to their highest potential.

I'm an English and History specialist with two years of full-time experience tutoring college admissions tests (ACT and SAT, as well as AP exams) and college essays. Until recently, I worked in Brentwood for a national test-prep company. I taught more than 100 students from public high schools in Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, and West Los Angeles, and from top private schools like Brentwood, Marlborough, and Harvard Westlake. That experience has given me a deep understanding both of the tests and the students who take them. If you work with me, I'll use that understanding to target your specific challenges and help you make the most efficient, lasting progress.

I believe the best teaching is personal: It happens when the teacher knows the student and can relate to them as an individual. Private tutoring allows me to do that. I do my best to make my students comfortable and meet them where they are—whether they're already scoring 33s on their ACTs or are struggling to score 13s. I pride myself on my patience and my success working with students of all academic levels. Wherever you're starting from, I'll help you go higher and hopefully learn something about yourself along the way. The only catch is that I'll make you work as hard as I do for it. Wherever you start from, you'll have to be committed to taking charge of your own improvement: Be willing to make mistakes in order to get better, and face your weaknesses head-on so you can learn from them.

If you like the sound of that, I'd love to hear from you. Message me with some info on what you need and I'll te

History

American History,

American History

I have a B.A. in history from UC Irvine and have been tutoring US History for nearly four years at both the high school and AP level. I have tutored more than 35 students in AP US History, and I have a strong background with all aspects of the AP course and exam, especially the essay sections which are the biggest challenge for many students. Nearly all of my students have achieved scores of 4 or 5 on the AP exam, and I can also of course help students in non-AP courses with essays, exam prep, or anything else they are struggling with. I enjoy teaching history students and strive to show them new ways to think about and study what they're learning, so that they can hopefully better learn and understand the material in the future even without my help. I have more than 30 positive reviews on my profile page from history students I've worked with during my past year and a half on Wyzant, and I am always eager to hear from new students about their challenges and explore how I might help them. If you think I can give you a hand with your course or exam, I hope you'll get in touch!
European History,

European History

As a history specialist, I have a strong background in many topics in European history and have taught many students in a variety of Euro history courses. While I have helped students with everything from Ancient to 20th century European history, my greatest depth of experience is with modern European history since the 14th century, which is the same time period covered by the AP European History exam as well as the "Modern World History" or "Modern Western Civilization" courses taken by most high school sophomores in California and other states. As an AP specialist, I have particular expertise with all aspects of the AP Euro course and exam, and I have helped many students with learning the specific requirements and format for DBQs and LEQs, as well as adapting to the challenges of AP-style stimulus multiple-choice and short-answer questions. Get in touch with me about your particular situation and I will tell you more about how I can help!
World History,

World History

I have a degree in history from UC Irvine and nearly four years of experience teaching more than 45 students in various World History courses. I have helped many high school students taking standard 9th or 10th grade World History courses, and I am an especially good choice to help students with the challenging AP World History course and exam. I have a very strong knowledge of all aspects of the AP World exam and have helped nearly 30 students specifically with this test. Nearly all of my past students have achieved scores of 4 or 5 on the AP exam, and I have helped many of them achieve significant improvements in their skills and understanding in as little as two or three weeks. I've also helped many students in non-AP World History courses with studying for exams, learning how to write research papers, and other projects. My goal with every student is to help them develop skills and habits that will eventually allow them to succeed on their own. My favorite thing to hear from students is that I showed them a way of thinking about or studying history that they had never heard about before, and that they now found it much easier to understand and approach the subject. If you'd like to know more, please see the more than 30 positive reviews from history students posted on my profile page, or get in touch with me with any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you!

Sara, 6 lessons with Morgan

AP World History

Can not recommend high enough. My son was amazed at in how few sessions he was given tangible and practical advice skills that he was able to use. We are confident that they will increase his test results.

Very Knowledgeable and Teaches Good Skills

We are very happy to set up classes with Morgan for our son, who is taking AP World History exam soon. From the first time talking to Morgan and telling him that exam is just less than 2 months away, I saw that he knows exactly how he is going to approach his teaching. He is not doing work for my son, but he is patiently guiding him and showing the right way to study the text and get prepared. This is very good! I am very happy with the way Morgan communicates with my son in a positive and peaceful way; lessons are quite productive with lots of feedback and helpful critique, good note taking. I also noticed that my son started applying these skills in his school work and getting all excellent grades in history class. Morgan has recommended to get a book which is a great history resource.

Good Start!

Morgan M. was patient and friendly. It is just the start of my tutoring, and I can see that I will gain a lot of knowledge in APUSH! Mr. M. made things clearer for me. So far it has been really great!

Our Son Really Appreciates Morgan!

Morgan is excellent in assisting our son with both knowledge of the material and test taking skills which are so important in AP classes. We will be using him through the AP US History process.

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

Morgan is very good and knows what exactly I was looking for. He thought me AP World History. I gained a lot from his session on how to answer saq questions. He had the exact material we use and was very versed in the subject.

Amazing Tutor!

Morgan taught my son AP US History for past few months. He is very Flexible and quick in responding or last minute schedule changes. Patient and good at explaining. Very knowledgeable of US History. Good approach for helping students who aren't very interested in it. Thank you so much for helping my son!

Christina, 9 lessons with Morgan

awesome!

Morgan not only pin-pointed which mistakes I have been making in my essays and studying APUSH, but he also explains in a way where I can apply those concepts to multiple subjects and assignments. Thus, he helped me become a better independent essay writer and thinker. 5 stars for sure!
