Hi, it is time for history! I specialize in tutoring Advanced Placement U.S., European, and World History. Whether you are looking for help with content, skills or homework I have over 10 years experience teaching and tutoring AP history.

AP History can be a challenging subject for even the hardest working students but the help of a good tutor fluent in the material can make a big difference in class performance. I am a full time AP history teacher with two advanced degrees in History. I have over twenty years experience teaching and tutoring history at both the high school and university levels and now have over 1400 hours tutored here on WyzAnt. Whether you are looking for help with classwork or specific exam training or both, I am confident that you could not find a more qualified or knowledgeable history instructor. Students most often remark that I have a talent making the material understandable to them.

I am available for regularly scheduled weekly meetings, random exam cram sessions, last second paper final drafts, or whenever the need arises for help in AP history. My approach is highly adaptable to meet the needs of individual students. Often students come to me knowing exactly what they want to cover, others need structure created for them and I am very good at providing this material as well.

Due to the high popular demand for online classes I no longer make house calls in the LA area. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied I will refund the fee for that session. Student life happens and thus I have a flexible cancellation policy but would prefer at least a 24 hour notice.

I look forward to achieving the rewards of success together. Many thanks for your consideration and good luck this year with the greatest, most interesting classes ever created: AP History!

Knowledgeable and patient

Mr. Preston tutors AP US History classes for my daughter. I highly recommend such a good teacher for other students too. He helps understand the history very well to the student, explains the pros and cons of every event and teaches from his heart.

Knowledgeable, patient and engaging tutor!

Preston cares a lot about each student's understanding of a difficult subject. He knows when the student does not understand and takes the time and tries very hard to make sure the student finally understands. What a great, patient teacher!

Great AP Euro tutor

Knowledgeable about materials, effective communicator, articulate when teaching the subject. Learn a great deal within the hour. Would recommend him to any student who needs help on any history classes.

Amazing breadth of knowledge that is made accessible

There is not enough space to fully review the breadth and depth of Preston's ability to convey his love of history to his fortunate students. He is a treasure. We connected with Preston a year and a half ago. 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.) He helped my son organize the many parts of European history so that is was a successful end of the year in class and on the AP exam. We were truly blessed to begin our year this year in AP US History with a weekly doses of Preston. We are waiting on our AP scores, but my son felt confident and much more prepared. Preston has a way of helping to synthesize vast amounts of information and draw his student into active learning with him. Tests are important, and our son would not have the GPA in his course that he now has without Preston's guidance, but what he truly gained was an enthusiasm and care for the past and how it impacts the world he is now living and participating in. Look no further for your history tutor.

Prompt, professional and knowledgeable tutor

Preston helped my daughter with AP Euro. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Will use him again in the future.

Kristine, 4 lessons with Preston

Patient and helpful tutor

Preston can pinpoint what is important and can make suggestions without being too detailed. This allows the student to be original and independent.

Anand, 26 lessons with Preston

Knowledgable & Patient

Preston is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. My son said "He shows a great understanding of the material even without a book" My son's grade had improved significantly in a very short period of time in his AP European class. Since Preston tutored my son in 2nd semester, my son felt very confident taking the test and enjoyed the class more.

Enthusiastic About History

Preston has been terrific for our daughter. She really enjoys history and was feeling overwhelmed in her second AP History class. Preston has helped her tailor how she takes notes to be more efficient, has taught her how to find the important information within all the material, and does it all very enthusiastically. She feels very confident in her work and is doing very well thus far.
