Hello, I specialize in Advanced Placement U.S., European, and World History. I teach AP history full time at an independent school in Los Angeles, have two M.A.s in History, and have completed graduate level teacher training in both World and U.S. history. I have over fifteen years experience both teaching and tutoring History at the high school/college levels and over 1200 hours tutoring on WyzAnt. Whether you are looking for help with classwork or specific exam training or both, you couldn't find a more effective or qualified instructor.

AP History can be a challenging subject for even the hardest working students but in my experience the help of a good tutor can make a big difference. I am available for scheduled weekly meetings to keep up with classwork, emergency cram sessions, paper final drafts, or whenever the need arises. My approach is highly adaptable to meet the needs and wants of individual students.

I mainly do online lessons now but can travel to students in the convenience of their own homes or at a public location such as a Starbucks or a local library in the Silver Lake/Los Feliz/Burbank/Glendale/Pasadena areas.

If for any reason you are not completely satisfied I will refund the fee for that session. I have a flexible cancellation policy as well 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. Thanks!

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.

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.
