It's time for history! I specialize in tutoring Advanced Placement U.S., European, and World History as well as Dual Enrollment/Credit and college level history classes. Whether you are looking for help with textbook content, exam skills, or homework, a student could not find a more patient, qualified or knowledgeable history tutor. I have two Masters degrees in History and over fifteen years experience teaching and tutoring hundreds of students in AP history both full time in the classroom and as a tutor on WyzAnt. On WyzAnt, I have over 3000+ hours tutored with 800+ five star ratings including many parent written testimonials. Although I cannot guarantee any score, my students score a "5" on the national AP exam at a much higher percentage rate than the national average.

AP History is a challenging subject but in my experience the help of an experienced tutor can make a big difference. I provide help with both classwork and preparing for the national exam by individually personalizing my approach to every student. I have a talent for making the massive amount of content material understandable and manageable. I am also able to make the complex essay rubrics comprehendible. Many students find that practicing AP style questions with me becomes a sure path to success.

Parents most often schedule regular weekly meetings (1-2 week). I also provide one-time test cram sessions, essay or project reviews, asynchronous and synchronous paper editing, or whenever the need arises. Usually students come prepared knowing exactly what they want to cover however I can also provide personalized structure for the student. I recommend weekly sessions to guarantee yourself a spot as my schedule will fill up.

Many thanks for your consideration and interest. Please take a look at my parent testimonials and reviews. I am also happy to provide a free 15 minute consultation. Good luck this year with the greatest and most interesting classes ever created: AP History!

Stepped right in!

Thank you to Preston who has come on the scene via zoom tutoring sessions with my AP World sophomore and provided much needed support. Anxiety and academic stress has been linked ever since the Covid shit down when our district closed the campus for the better part of one and a half academic grade years. We are doing what we can to rewrite and make positive connections. This tutor came into a very stressed situation and is immediately passed through a very sturdy wall of “I don’t understand” and “this is pointless.” That right there is a big job. Thank you!

Awesome tutor!

He explains everything really nicely and gets through stuff pretty quickly. Also, he has a really fun attitude that makes things a lot less awkward!

Edward, 2 lessons with Preston

AP World History

Very knowledgeable and able to distill the essential information and more importantly help him get the main ideas and not get bogged down in so much information

Excellent Tutor for APUSH and AP Euro

Preston has worked with both of my children for APUSH and AP Euro. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about the content but he makes the lessons very engaging. He has a very good read on what to focus on, so the time spent with him is very valuable. Both of my children's grades were elevated due to their lessons with Preston. My son, who usually doesn't want to work tutors, said that Preston is by far the best he's worked with and totally worth it! Now that his APUSH class is over, he will miss working with Preston.

Inspiring and engaging

After one lesson with Preston our son felt inspired and motivated. The first thing he said after his session with Preston is, “when can I do this again with a Preston? He is such a great teacher!!””

First meeting

My daughter’s first meeting with Preston went extremely well. She strongly believes that he will make the difference in her APUSH grade. He took the time to look at what she was doing in her class and how her teacher scores the various tests/assignments so that he could better assist her in targeting specific areas of need.

Knowledgeable and patient

Mr. Preston gave an in depth explanation on the chapters he covered with my daughter. AP World History has been a big challenge for her and an expert teacher is what we needed. She was impressed with him and told me she learned a lot. Thanks.

Awesome AP European History tutor

I went from lost to A+ in my AP European History Course. Preston has the patience to teach, review and practice multiple choice and essay questions. His sessions are very organized. He goes over the material, finds my weak points and insists on them until I understand and make the needed connections. I feel confident now and thanks to his classes I know that whatever happens in school Preston will have my back covered. Thank you!

Very knowledgeable

Preston helped my son prepare for the AP euro exam. He is very knowledgeable and my son learned a lot during each session. We will use him again in the future. Highly recommend!
